Golden Chemistry ~ Great Book from my Youth!

Thanks to Gregg Favalora for spotting the Golden Book of Chemistry Experiments, one of the key influences on me as a kid! This is partial inspiration for Howtoons and at least a couple Moments of Science at the IgNobels! The book is full of fantastically hazardous stuff you could probably never get away with publishing today, including no gloves or eye-protection for starters, but more importantly DIY lessons on "chemical warfare" like this page on Chlorine gas!
