Trying to figure out what to do with my leftoever punks.  If I dilute ethanol with alcohol (10% or so) and dissolve BaCl, then soak the punks and light them on fire, will they burn kind of like green sparklers without the sparks?  
Had enough chemistry to get myself blown up

Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

the little sticks you use to light fireworks that are about 6" long and burn real slowly

Maybe you could nitrate them, or perchlorate them ;D otherwise those things are pretty boring,  I can't see anything remotely interesting apart from nitrating them, or soaking them in verious energetic chemicals 8)

It would do a better job probably to soak them in a solution of BaClO3 rather than the chloride, as this is an oxidizer and will help 'em burn too.
