Everything was fun when I was a kid.

Now it's all labeled "known to cause cancer in the state of California". I also used to like to run behind the vapor clouds of the ddt trucks, and play with mercury..It was so slicky, slithery, amazing.

And no, we were supposed to go in the house when the ddt trucks cruised through the wherry housing, but what fun is that?

We used to make this stuff from gasoline and styrofoam that was like silly putty in some regards, but was highly flammable.

We called it “blob materiel”

No one was ever hurt, some eyebrows were singed...

I used to play with mercury too. Wouldn’t last too long, though - it tended to disappear in the cracks in the floor.

And we used to have a high old time using the long school break to blow up fish with quarter dynamite sticks :).
