Any idea where this video is?

I would just want to see this done with potassium.

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.

Something similar was done in Sweden, buy a couple of youths.
They got their dirty hands of half a kilo of potassium. They threw it in a sewer in an industrial area, and watched the explosion throw up the sewer grate, which landed some 50 meters from their location.

Sounds like a good 4th of July science experiment.

They got scared shitless, because they had no clue the explosion would be so violent. The police caught them, and they confessed.

I dont think the video was comercial, just something passed around by chem teachers.
