Nitrogen triiodide... A friend of mine got jail time for "terrorist" related and some other charges when he applied some of it to the stage of the Arsenio Hall show in '91. Fun stuff, but it can get you into trouble.

I separated oxygen from hydrogen in water with electricity and trapped both gases in beakers. It was such a long time ago that i can't remember how I did it, exactly.

In college (Purdue) we did the actual Milliken Oil Drop experiment to determine the charge on an electron (I think that is what we doing) in physics "lab". I remember, we all hated "lab" because it was so hard. One would think it is fun, but the precision, error explanations and adjustments and (horror!) the post lab questions, calculations and proofs were, well, cruel. On the Milliken experiment my lab partner and I did our measurements and calculations, etc, which resulted in our getting the EXACT same answer as we had learned from the book. We felt obliged to assure the lab instructor that we hadn.t "backed it in" or cooked the books, so to speak.
