You call that “controlled”???

In a controlled experiment carried out by Alcoa Aluminium, 20 kilos (44 pounds) of molten aluminium was allowed to react with 20 litres of water, along with a small quantity of rust.

“The explosion destroyed the entire laboratory and left a crater 30 metres (100 feet) in diameter,” Simensen said.

This, my friends, is what happens when real scientists watch too much MythBusters.

    I wonder if I use 44kg of Bicarb and 100 litres of vinegar in a controlled experiment?
