NEVER take friends fertilizer shopping!
A few weeks ago, I headed down to the local garden center w/ a buddy -dumb. While I was reading contents, my buddy began socializing w/ the employees. For "god knows why," he brought up pyrotechnics.
I overheard him & immediately dropped the bag of K-Power. I told him let's go & we left.
Sure enough, I get home tonight & police are lining my driveway. I get questioned. It was too late. My buddy opened his mouth. I gave them the generic explanation that I took an interest in chemistry & it was for educational purposes only.
I found schooling the police on advanced chemistry very gratifying. I believe I lost them @ Alkali metals, & to be honest, I don't think they knew what KNO3 was or where to find it -lmfao
One of the (female) officers took great interest in a small bag of powdered KCl on the table (electrolysis) I guess I'm a drug dealer now. Lol, judging by their body posture, I think they were ready to handcuff me. I told the lady to taste it. It's sodium free salt lmfao ("healthy" salt alternative) -Potassium Chloride
Needless to say I'm studying my asss off on the laws/regulations. I have the basics down, but I'm near postive they'll be back. This wasn't the first time.
I contacted an optometrist to verify a downstream vergence equation on a 2W IR laser. Some of you may remember this: DIY Night Vision Device. Engineers/Eye Doctors Welcome. Warning: Technical
I guess she didn't feel like checking over my work & decided to contact the authorities instead.
Yup, so in the mean time, I'll be plenty busy. If any of you are on the pyrotechnics forum or are a fire marshall, please hit me up.
I'll now live on the west coast
