In the early 00s I stumbled onto The Experiment Log, a hilarious series of four articles described by the author as:
the various experiments that several college students (myself included) tried out of simple curiosity and, more often, sheer boredom. I hope that you find this stuff funny… but I also hope that you don’t do it yourself. I have the feeling that we were just lucky that we didn’t royally toast ourselves, or burn down our poor dorm room that we repeatedly bar-b-qued on a nightly basis, but then that’s just my opinion. You’d be amazed what you can do with duct tape and a gallon of common, household bleach.
Today I wanted to share it with a friend and was unable to find it. By
sheer luck I stumbled on a mention of it with a link in
a 2003 linkroll after searching DDG for
"The Experiment Log"
"act of god":
Several college playing-with-fire “experiments” with details on how to recreate them. Four of the five are merely good, but number three, “The Act of God” is standout.
You might want to hold back on doing this one if you want your security deposit back when you move.
So, without further ado, I compel you to go check it. On to the Experiments!
