How about two small children and science fair projects! That my bloggie friends is scary. This year I helped my 6 year old complete her project called "Hot Ice" Wow what a trick! Believe it or not baking soda + Vinegar makes a very overflowing combo.
How do I apply this to writing? well simple: experience makes a writer just as much as anything else. Perhaps one day this will be found in a book or short story or even a poem!
I can see it now...The hero attempting to make Sodium acetate trihydrate in the middle of a battle, or perhaps s/he is curious what can happen with baking soda and vinegar? Or maybe s/he wants to get even with some?
(Enter evil laugh here.) ahem...sorry my imagination runs away with me sometimes.
