Hi All,


Here we go again. Another flammable demonstration gone wrong.


This was reported on ABC National News tonight (Nov 2). It happened in Georgia this week.


Fortunately, the teacher was not seriously injured (minor burns and burned hair) and none of the students were hurt. One very, very lucky teacher!


I guess she was trying to show that flame will follow a vapor or that the vapor had a higher density than air.
