I never could get the hang of chemistry at school. You'd mix together two innocuous substances, burn them, get a funny smell and that would demonstrate one thing, then you'd do it all again with two other substances, get much the same result and that would prove something else. Then you'd repeat this for several years and have to sit an exam at the end of it all. Which I failed, of course.
Maybe all the teachers needed was to make the subject more relevant to real life. Apparently some of them have already begun this, as exmplified by the "Screaming Jelly Baby" experiment. Supposedly this demonstrates respiration - the use of oxygen to transfer energy, and involves giving a jelly baby an oxidising agent.
It just looks like any other incomprehensible chemistry to me, but at least the one here is entertainingly filmed:
Have a good weekend!
