Hey Ravers! Make a Glow Stick!

Going to a rave in 1993? You need a glow stick! I can’t help you with the Dr. Seuss hat and clock necklace, but I did manage to dig up some chemicals on the web that were flagged as hazardous materials three whole times before they were delivered. All you need is hundreds of dollars and a good explanation for the FBI and you’re on your way to a homemade glow stick!

My two least favorite thing about this video: 1) I somehow forgot to put on safety gear. Brilliant! 2) The segment is called “Hack,” a word that every comic wants in giant letters right next to them when they’re talking. Oh well. The glowing part is cool.

PS- Really, don’t try this.

    This was absolutely fantastic. I especially enjoyed the part where you specifically mention not to dump the chemical cocktail on small children. Classic!

    In my tenure as a Chris Hardwick fan–from KROQ to Wired Science–I think this is one of my faves. Makes me wanna go use a funnel.
