And yes, what happens next is just what you think happens: you run a mixture of oxygen and fluorine through a 700-degree-heating block. "Oh, no you don't," is the common reaction of most chemists to that proposal, ". . .not unless I'm at least a mile away, two miles if I'm downwind."
It's terible, but I've been laughing so hard I have tears.
At seven hundred freaking degrees, fluorine starts to dissociate into monoatomic radicals, thereby losing its gentle and forgiving nature
The properties of fluorine had been predicted from its position on the periodic table, at the top of the halogens in a series of increasing reactivity. Chlorine, the less reactive sister, when mixed with hydrogen, explodes with extreme violence if the mixture is exposed to light.
My evening is ruined. I ahve so much on my plate I want to barf. But it will all have to wait.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.-John Q. Adams You must accept one of two basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not alone in the universe. And either way, the implications are staggering.-Wernher von Braun Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.-Albert Einstein
He's managing to teach those arrogant drivers a valuable lesson without causing serious harm to anyone. I think this is fine, and those 'victims' will NEVER again cut across another vehicle like that in their lifetime.
If you read the article you will discover that it is even worse than what it looks like. Some of them want an accident, and since they are run into, it is automatically assumed that those that run into the them are at fault, but this guy has a camera, and can prove that they cut him off, and a bus has right of way.
I have seen people cut off bus drivers in King County/Seattle and think that they should allow the bus driver to report them, aided by a camera that catches the act (It would be difficult and dangerous for the driver to catch and write down the plate).
I have often thought of ramming people who do that to me. In America you will get a "Failure to stop or yeild to avoid an accident" ticket, even though you won't get blamed. So you still pay a ticket, and your insurance rates will go up, even though the other person will be at fault for the accident.
Isn't that a little bit twisted? In the video you can a driver who cuts him off and slams the breaks even though there is nothing to break for. There is nothing you can do to avoid it and still get a ticket? Sounds not right to me.

Won't happen of course, but I think it would work.
(A lot of USians there as it is going to be a Merkin Production, but we need a few British in for the punters - Esp Avon, got to have a British Man playing the Psychopathic Killer).
