❰❰Hand on Fire

I apologize to everyone who is a regular reader of my blog. I’ll try to do it more often, I just get very busy sometimes. Today’s is just a short post about Chemistry class today.

In Mr. Jordan’s Chemistry class today we had our hands lit on fire! The trick involves soaking one’s hand in water and then putting methane bubbles on the hand. The methane in the bubbles burns without burning the hand because of the barrier of water.

My hand was lit on fire today.

It was very fun. Anyway, I’d love to blog on a more regular schedule so I’m thinking I’ll make it weekly. I learn so much every day about programming (and life in general) that it’s important to me that I share that with the world.
