"Absolutely nothing" Wow! I thought that there was no way that a material could exist that could blow up with no one even remotely touching it. That is absolutely, ridiculously unstable stuff. No, thank you. Keep me a 1000 miles away from the stuff before it decides to blow up for no reason. I thought that antimatter was bad. This is even worse than antimatter.
Doesn't cyanobacteria, nature, break down nitrogen triple bonds? Also did you mean that the nitrogen triple bond is hard to break or that all triple bonds are hard to break because nitriles are pretty reactive.
Holy hell how do they even make most of this stuff? Like the Azidoazide azide and the last acid? Humans...they're a lot smarter. Scratch that. Some humans...they're a lot smarter than other humans give them credit for. I would say the people who managed to create 5 of the world's most dangerous chemicals are, but they created 5 of the world's most dangerous chemicals. So there's that.
everyone is talking about the AA, what about the fluroantimonic acid? sure AA explodes when nothing happens, but this acid eats through all but one substance. look up superacid vs fruit, watch some videos, and imagine that but millions of times worse.
I'm sick. Every time I watch this video I laugh my a## off. It's Hank's delivery but also, the thought of people sitting around saying "Let's put together something that blows up no matter what you do with it." :-). I would love to hear what Professor Sir Martyn Poliakoff has to say about azidoazide azide.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
