  3. Favorite indicator - Phenolphthalein. Not only was it the first indicator I ever used in a titration (it was in my SkilCraft chemistry set), but you could fix it with a melted chocolate bar and make ExLax, a popular laxative back when I was a kid.

    Of course, now they say it is a carcinogen, like everything else.

  4. Three necks. One for the condenser, one for the addition sep funnel and the third for the thermometer. You can always stopper the third neck if you don't need it, but adding a neck takes some pretty good glassblowing...

  5. TNT - no thank you. TATB, triaminotrinitrobenzene, is much safer, especially when building nukes. Much less likely to do something rude with plutonium. :-)
