Found this on the web
http://www.csudh.edu...ta/com_name.htm
I have been grinding up my eggs-shells in my new mortar and pestle and putting them on the lavender plants. (All part of the re-cycling fever) I didn't realise I was using Calcium carbonate:eek2::(

Egg shells Calcium carbonate
The main ingredient in eggshells is calcium carbonate (the same brittle white stuff that chalk, limestone, cave stalactites, sea shells, coral, and pearls are made of). The shell itself is about 95% CaCO3 (which is also the main ingredient in sea shells). The remaining 5% includes calcium phosphate and magnesium carbonate and soluble and insoluble proteins.

Yep. Some folks crush eggshells and feed them back to the laying hens for calcium replacement. :(

Seriously? Methinks that's in every dictionary and encyclopedia I own, and was probably in our elementary (perhaps junior high?) textbooks about the history of China... B)

Hmmm... not sure about the textbooks, but ratios are in my computer version of Grolier Encyclopedia. :warped:

[EDIT] Actually the posted mention of:

"Charcoal + ? + ? = gunpowder"

didn't strike me as containing ratios either. ;)

Yes very Seriously
NSW Police rang a few times getting my wife who was most amused
"O you think he wants to make bombs!!" har har!!
Lucky I wasn't locked up on the spot.!!
When I thus protested that I could be locked up under the new Terror Laws for two weeks without contact with anyone-
she said
"So what's the problem?"
Women!!

Lucky I'm not being bugged by CIA operatives.:eek_big:

I used to make it (gunpowder) when I was a kid. I think I just mixed equal quantities of saltpeter, charcoal and sulphur.
It was always a bit disappointing as you could not get the BANG you could get with what we called "Tuppenny Bungers" lethal things that blew letter boxes to bits. One kids hand too
We loved "cracker Night" lived for it.
Now it is so tame and safe
We did jam some home made gunpowder and a steel ball bearing down a bit of pipe once as I remember that went well:evil:
But
How we survived childhood I will never know
I loved mucking about with chemicals but when I was 15 my science teacher was arrested. and the brothers at the school wouldn't let anyone in his class continue with chemistry
So sad:(
Changed my life
No I don't know what he was arrested for- this was 30 years ago Terrorists were not on the radar

Still having trouble buying cheap charcoal for my garden

Sheesh, that's just plain scary. :eek_big:

And being locked up don't sound like any fun either... :eek2:
