Real Alchemy You can do in Science Class!  
Today in my science class we did a really neat experiment based off the alchemical writings of the arabic alchemist Jabir Ibn Hayyan. In the experiment you can change a copper penny into a penny that's coated in a gold-like substance. The final result is

:D If any of you guys end up trying this, much luck to you. It's a pretty fun experiment.

(I was a total dork and wore my red FMA shirt with the flamel on the back. No one seemed to get the symbol though.)

Note: This was done in a CP Chemistry class in 11th grade.

I wish that I had been able to do stuff like that in my chem class. We only got to put copper into a solution and watch it turn into silver though and mix sodium and water. Which now reminds me of Kimbly. Freaky. That would have been neat to do. I want to get into silver electroplating eventually because I'm a totally jewelry making nut.
