Now do it with Francium!
#22 to #20 - anon (02/08/2013) [-]
that would be difficult, considering that Francium reacts to any amount of moisture in the air
User avatar #23 to #22 - dukeofbattle (02/08/2013) [-]
I'm aware, that's why no more than about 15g at a time exists in the earth's crust
User avatar #65 to #23 - emrakul (02/08/2013) [-]
that's mainly because of how radioactive it is

Use Francium pussies
User avatar #19 to #3 - IceViper (02/08/2013) [-]
is that a picture of a francium reaction? i cant seem to find a video on youtube.
User avatar #81 to #19 - anonymoose (02/08/2013) [-]
It's not. Probably Cesium again.
#21 to #3 - imnotawesome (02/08/2013) [-]
Francium is highly radioactive so it throws off a lot of heat, so much so infact that IF we could even find a way to get enough francium in one place to form a piece large enough to see, it would immediately vaporize from its own heat.
User avatar #10 to #3 - magikarpforlife (02/07/2013) [-]
Francium is so reactive, it would react with the moisture in the air. Aside from that, it is also very hard to find. Experienced researchers believe that there are hardly 30 grams of francium found on the surface of the earth.

Then we must dig deeper

If we can create human life, I'm pretty sure science can crate more of an element, if they tried. Jus saiyan
#13 to #12 - rikeus (02/07/2013) [-]
...we CAN create more of an element. It's called nuclear fusion. It's what happens inside stars. The problem is that it takes a LOT of energy, and subsequently a LOT of money.
User avatar #57 to #12 - Lilstow (02/08/2013) [-]
we can't really "create" human life besides through reproduction.
we can influence it though.

All these scientifically-brilliant, well-educated users on Funnyjunk.

And I'm just sitting here laughing at stories of Shrek assraping innocent children.

guies!.....guies..... I know you're sciencing and all about elemental reactivity and junk, but.....guies....No, guies seriously.....Explosion.... Mildly entertaining explosion. Can we just enjoy that for a moment? And maybe some thumbs for their troubles?

Damn gifs won't load on my phone
User avatar #69 to #67 - xtrmbragnrytz ONLINE (02/08/2013) [-]
What type of phone do you have? (apple or android for starters)
User avatar #71 to #69 - peaceablerook (02/08/2013) [-]
Android. Its a galaxy s, it's an old phone.
User avatar #72 to #71 - xtrmbragnrytz ONLINE (02/08/2013) [-]
I'm gonna try to guide you using my phone's settings (also android) as a reference

On the internet app, press the menu button (whatever brings up options for the current app) and select settings, on that page there should be a check-box that says load GIFs, it's usually off by default because they require more data
User avatar #73 to #72 - peaceablerook (02/08/2013) [-]
Thanks for the help, but my phone does not have that setting option. Here is a thumb for you help
User avatar #75 to #73 - xtrmbragnrytz ONLINE (02/08/2013) [-]
There may be a similar option somewhere else, that or it's too early to have that level of flash, i'd suggest looking it up online for more help
User avatar #76 to #75 - peaceablerook (02/08/2013) [-]
Thanks
User avatar #83 to #67 - usmcoorah (02/08/2013) [-]
Do you have chrome? (no seriously I had the same problem, then downloaded chrome from the app store for free and now gifs work.)
User avatar #93 to #83 - peaceablerook (02/08/2013) [-]
No, but im getting a better phone in March. Maybe that will help. Because the gifs load they just don't play sometimes. It's like it loads a pic not a gif.
User avatar #94 to #93 - usmcoorah (02/08/2013) [-]
Yeah I know, I had that same problem before I downloaded chrome. Idk what kinda phone you have but its worth a try.
User avatar #95 to #94 - peaceablerook (02/08/2013) [-]
Thanks ill try it. Ttake these thumbs as thanks.
User avatar #96 to #94 - peaceablerook (02/08/2013) [-]
My phone isn't compatible with chrome
User avatar #97 to #96 - usmcoorah (02/08/2013) [-]
Well ****** piss I tried.
User avatar #98 to #97 - peaceablerook (02/08/2013) [-]
Hey no need to call name Here. you told me to try it, so I did and it didn't work so I felt obligated to let you know my phone was not compatible with chrome.
User avatar #100 to #98 - usmcoorah (02/08/2013) [-]
lmao I wasnt calling you a name silly, ****** piss is something I say like "well **** I tried" but instead of **** I say ****** piss.

This is unlikely to be Cesium. Cesium is so reactive to water that it would at least fizzle on contact with air due to water vapour. It's more likely that this is potassium, or Cesium heavily... well, diluted, though that's not an accurate term for solids... with something.
User avatar #66 to #56 - LordVoltagen (02/08/2013) [-]
Cut
you cut solids
cesium cut with something
User avatar #77 to #66 - Hreidmar ONLINE (02/08/2013) [-]
Yes, that's the one I was looking for. Shame on me, I'm a chemistry teacher. In my defense, it's been a very long day.

User avatar #31 - OuterworldKing (02/08/2013) [-]
Nope. Cesium would explode due to contact with the water vapor in the air. That is sodium or lithium. Maybe potassium. Francium and cesium have to be contained in oil otherwise they react with simple air.
User avatar #45 to #31 - vanoreo (02/08/2013) [-]
No it's Cesium.

In my Chem. class this afternoon. THIS ******* AFTERNOON we saw this identical clip. English announcer said it was Cesium.
User avatar #102 to #45 - OuterworldKing (02/08/2013) [-]
Cesium only exists in a few hundredths of a gram at any one point on Earth. Most of it is synthetically made in labs. The reaction as you move down the Alkali metals increases by a factor of ten for each one. Since cesium is at the bottom, it's reactive potential is far greater than what is shown. The table would have been shattered.
User avatar #104 to #102 - vanoreo (02/08/2013) [-]
You're also probably thinking of Francium
#33 to #31 - broorb ONLINE (02/08/2013) [-]
This, yeppity yep
User avatar #36 to #31 - WHATTHEPISSTRAINE (02/08/2013) [-]
Maybe it's still covered in oil from containment? Cesium only takes a little water to explode and mineral oil doesn't just uncoat everything pulled out of it
User avatar #37 to #36 - WHATTHEPISSTRAINE (02/08/2013) [-]
shoot.. this is why I don't drink and type... mineral oil coats whatever's pulled out of it.

Eh, Francium. Nothing like radiation in the morning.

my chemistry teacher showed us the full video of this! It was one by one, each alkali metals into water.

#63 - anon (02/08/2013) [-]
That I do not believe is cesium. Potassium maybe.
Cesium(even that small amount) has the power to blow apart a bath tub .
#49 - justtocomment (02/08/2013) [-]
I always wanted to know... What would happen if Francium were to react with Flourine?
User avatar #51 to #49 - wheresthefudge (02/08/2013) [-]
They wouldn't react.
Francium has actually never been observed. It just falls apart too fast (the most stable isotope has a half-life of 22 minutes). Any usable quantity of Francium vaporizes almost instantly through beta decay which would take precedence over reaction with Fluorine.
#53 to #51 - justtocomment (02/08/2013) [-]
What if you could get enough of it in one place?
Or, if not Francium, then Caesium and Flourine?
User avatar #54 to #53 - Hreidmar ONLINE (02/08/2013) [-]
Not as big a bang as you'd think, but it does depend on the concentrations. If you were to get a disk of Caesium (which is harder to do than you think) so that a lot of it's surface is exposed to Fluorine at once, you'd get a very impressive explosion. Otherwise, it would be a very violent but not explosive reaction. It would cause the vessel to jump around a lot and probably crack.

If you could get enough Francium in one place (and as wheresthefudge pointed out, that's just theoretical,) presumably you would get an exponentially bigger bang.

Well, one day science will catch up to my desires for needless chemical explosions.
User avatar #60 to #55 - iamscifer (02/08/2013) [-]
no chemical explosion is needless
#107 to #60 - anon (02/12/2013) [-]
Well then get some fluorine alone and just find a match. Fluorine goddamn loves to explode.
User avatar #44 - vanoreo (02/08/2013) [-]
Holy absolute ****

We watched this EXACT ******* CLIP in my chemistry class today...
User avatar #2 - vexaton ONLINE (02/07/2013) [-]
That's a very small amount of cesium... Pussies
User avatar #6 - baaltomekk (02/07/2013) [-]
Caesium would have reacted with the water in the air, so this isn't ceasium. Maybe Rubidium
User avatar #9 to #6 - magikarpforlife (02/07/2013) [-]
i saw this video in chem class, it didn't
#7 to #6 - anon (02/07/2013) [-]
User avatar #11 to #6 - aahrg (02/07/2013) [-]
caesium and other reactive metals are stored under oil, which leaves a thin coating when removed. the water probably washed it off before reacting with it.
User avatar #74 - electrickwalrus (02/08/2013) [-]
that is just science for saying: I CAME!!
