Welcome to the

This site is an ever growing warehouse of the kinds of projects some of the more demented of us tried as young people; the kind of projects that would usually end up destroying our family kitchen, leaving a small crater in the back yard, or leaving the dog permanently bald. It is a sort of warped semi-scientific cookbook of tricks, gimmicks, and pointless experimentation, concoctions, and devices, using, for the most part, things found around the house. This is not about serious scientific experimentation or education. There are many excellent sites for that (see the links section). This is for fun. These are the classics. Small explosions, slightly radioactive goo, radios made from cigarette packs, homemade stink bombs... the kind of things some of us tried when we were kids even though we knew better. This is a very new site, which brings me to...


Submissions are the lifeblood of this site, which exists primarily as an exchange of ideas among users. That means if you have a project that you would like to see here, please send it along! See the submission area for more information.

Obligatory Safety Warning.

As with anything fun, all projects on this she have the potential to stain, poison, kill, burn, explode, make a big mess, electrocute, sterilize, or any number of unforeseen bad things. If you don't know exactly what you are doing, don't even start. Stick with the tame stuff. If you decide to try one of the projects, be careful. Projects here are posted as information only. I cannot assume any responsibility. Don't come whining to me if you burn your house down. Consider this fair warning. Now get out there and have fun!

Credit where credit is due...

Sources for all projects are cited when known. Some of these things have been floating around for years, and the original source may have been untraceable. Some may have also slipped into the public domain, and some are just part of the collective conscious of childhood.
