Miscellaneous Interesting Sites

Liquid Oxygen to Fast-Start a Gas Grill - Professor Goble's site at Purdue University is well worth the time and electricity to visit.  Lots of cool links.  Best, however, is about half way down his longish page where you can see a picture (or download a movie) of him lighting  a charcoal grill with 3
gallons of liquid oxygen. Started with 60 lbs of charcoal, and burnt up 40 lbs of it in 3 seconds.
Result is a grill ready to cook in about 3 seconds

Molecules with Silly or Unusual Names - This site is very funny!  As they put it, "Believe it or not, some chemists do have a sense of humour, and this page is a testament to that. Here we'll show you some real molecules that have unusual, ridiculous or downright silly names."  WARNING!  You may find some of the material to be offensive!
