Anyone remember buying stink bombs when growing up and letting them off on places like the bus or school classroom great memories of innocent fun on the run.

l never bought stink bombs but have been on the receiving end of a couple. God they were awful.

We had to get a bus to the big school as we called it, one time the bus was stopped and emptied ,someone lit a fire under the back seat.

I never bought them either. I used to make my own.
When making Hydrogen I would have a solution left over which smelled of Hydrogen Sulphide. I filtered it and sealed it into tiny ignition tubes.
They were probably harder to break than the commercial variety but did the same job.
I love the smell of pure Hydrogen Sulphide.

Lyn don't ever get worried about Volty. When he was at University, he excelled. When he was in the Army he was training at top level. When he taught electronics his class all did very well. His library is Fantastic, He is very annoying.

None of which is true, except the last bit.
Perhaps it might have been so, but I couldn't be bothered.
And although, if pushed, I can use science to my benefit I prefer to use witchcraft.

Can one really start a sentence with 'And'?
And if not, why not?
