Default Re: Fun Facts about Potassium!

Yes potassium is associated with FUN! You know that famous scene in Tom Sawyer, where Tom has to paint the fence with whitewash, as punishment for skipping school, and he tells his pal Jim what fun it is? so Jim does the chore for him?

PBS - Mark Twain: Tom Sawyer Whitewashing the Fence

Whitewash is (was, in the old days) made from potassium... from lime and water, and lime is made from wood ashes, which are full of potassium. it was a homemade recipe for paint, housewives made it from the ashes of their fireplace (potash, which is bound potassium).

Rubidium also would melt in your hand if you could hold it with out it exploding your hand off.
Cesium too!

Which is neat, because they are metals.
