    A bomb shelter would more better. Also, seven of the
    eight students are wearing glasses.

    Reminds me of Father Hoffman, my chemistry teacher. On the very first class of the semester, there was a beaker of water and a bottle on his desk. He walked in, and without a word, opened the bottle and dropped it’s contents into the beaker of water. He then, again without a word, walked out of the room. The beaker exploded sending water and glass all over his desk. He walked in, and said: “I guess I used too much. That gentlemen, was a chemical reaction.” He continued his lecture without batting an eye.

    This retired Middle School Science teacher says, “Been there, done that.” “Survived that.”

    It’s all fun and games until someone loses an ion.

    stlmaddog5: Sounds like some of my professors. My comp anat prof told us about a colleague whose opening surgery lecture was a dramatic entry with a scalpel and a stack of newspapers. Holding up the scalpel, he said, “Gentlemen” [all who would take surgery in those days], this is what you will use to earn your living. With it, you will gain enough skill to be able to cut one, five, 10, 25, or 50 sheets." After cutting the paper, he left. The 25 was ± one, and the 50 ± three, the rest were right on. They tended to pay attention.

    It happened a year before I had him, but my chemistry professor preceded an exam, face down on the desks, on why everyone should start together. Then he counted down “ready, set, go” and at go, fired a starter pistol.
