Cody's lab and Nile Red are my faves, yours?

Nike red is quite good. Cody is interesting, but I think he's really reckless and lucky he hasn't been injured or poisoned. Watching h condense liquid oxygen made made me shudder.

Hahaha, yeah he can be a bit reckless. He does take more precautions than a lot of other people I've seen  :P
Interesting how normal his Hg and Pb results came back though.

him holding KCN with his bare hands is what made me cringe the most

Nah, could be worse than that I think. Its interesting that MSDS describes it at skin permator, I allways thought that its too polar for that (unless dissolved ofc).

Anyway, I like periodic table of videos and Total synthesis. The latter has only 3-4 videos but very interesting indeed

Yeah holding KCN is not a great idea, It's solubility in water is around 72 mg/ ml (wiki & pubchem). With an LD50 of around 5-10 mg / kg (oral, couldn't find dermal, this is also for a rat) you could be in a bit of trouble if you have a particularly sweaty hand.

Thanks for the suggestion, Total Synthesis looks pretty interesting.

My favorite is Kurzgesagt. I don't have deep knowledge of sciences and this channel explains complicated things in an easy way. There are videos, when I do not really agree, like with the video that says colonization of Mars is a bad idea. Recommend you to start with watching a "The Universe and Space stuff" channel. There is a lot of interesting information from What is atom explanation, to evolution writers review and Space Elevator theories.

I like PBS Space-Time.
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
