1. Music by Alan Stewart - Alan played the music in one take while watching the video for the first time! Alan:

2. The ethanol demonstration was intended to show the liquid would burn without damaging the object we doused. We chose a currency note because everyone is familiar with it - knows what is made from, feels like, etc. And they would know it is not a trick substance. There was no intent no cause any damage - just educate and entertain.
You can bid on the $50 in our charity auction...

3. The Potassium Nitrate - which also didn't go the plan - was designed to reveal a message on the paper - you should still be able to see it! (periodic videos loves to share all our demonstrations with you - even when they don't quite work or fail completely - you can learn much from so-called "failures")
