P.1 - Chemistry Is More Fun When You're SETTING THINGS ON FIRE!

------
Part 1: First 4 videos.
Periodic Videos (referring to the Periodic Table of Elements) is a group of scientists from the University of Nottingham with a huge catalog of juicy goodies.

They just released a few 20-30 second chemistry videos showing how mixing elements and solutions can SET THINGS ON FIRE!  I have an inkling they do this more for fun than science.
