A lot of the stuff we were doing was illegal, as I recall.
In my Grade 9 science class we learned about refraction and stuff. We got to go outside and burn stuff with a magnifying glass.
We then made every excuse to go out and do that day after day, and for the most part we were allowed.
We were learning, after all...

I'd love to be able to do that, but like I said before, the ground over here is like kerosene. I have made small fires however in a small sandy area in my backyward for the fun of it. I turned all of my high school notes into a compacted paper balls and then tried burning them. They came out looking like cabbages made of paper, being singed at the top to give a really cool colouring effect.

Since when is chemistry not a science?
