Top Hat Tuesday and Highly Flammable Liquids

I had a particularly enjoyable day today. Firstly I arrived at school along with three other people all wearing top hats. I love that top hat. So comfy. We went around wearing them all day and confusing people greatly. "Top hat Tuesday? But... but today is Monday!" I hear you cry. Well yes. Yes it is. We're being alternative. Also why we named ourself the Top hat Trio. Yes there are four of us. But alliteration is more important than such trivial things as reality.

Also we had a fiery explosion in Chemistry today. We were conducting experiments on cyclohexane. It is labelled highly flammable for a very good reason. One of the experiments was combustion. It combusts very well. And if for some reason you decide to drop your burning cyclohexane into... lets say....the giant container containing the whole supply of cyclohexane... well you end up setting fire to your workbench. *shifty eyes*

But we put out the workbench quickly and then just watched the container burn. And glass can melt. Who knew?

So I do have a picture of me in the tophat. I may even upload it. But I need enough views. I want to be able to say OVER 9000! And also for someone to send me the picture first.

  1. *snorts* Top Hat Tuesday. Oh, that is brilliant. You and the rest of the Top Hat Trio are four brilliant people.

    Cyclohexane explosions sound like fun. Explosions are fun in general. So is setting fire to a workbench, I assume.

    Sounds like you had a good day.

  2. I wish that I had a trio of four to wear top hats with on Tuesday's that think that they are Monday's. My day sadly, wasn't as interesting. I pretty much wrote my ISP and worked on my enzyme lab. I daresay that hydrogen peroxide does not explode when mixed with samples that contain catalase. It simply...fizzes. Yes, I'm taking Bio, not Chemistry. On the bright side though, we'll be dissecting a pig sometime this week. Although I really hate the smell of formeldehyde. (I don't really know how to spell it, so please forgive me. But I think it began with an "f" and not a "ph".

    Blessed be,

    Sounds like class with you would be very exciting but deaerst Octa, try not to make yourself into the burning man. *thinks about hiring someone to follow Octa with a fire extinguisher*

  6. Well I do now :P

    I didn't at the time of posting :P

    Also when I said I had a picture I meant I could probably find one from facebook. Which I haven't. Which is surprising.
