Magnesium fires on automobiles provide entertainment when rookies hit it with a fire hose  ;D

Got in good trouble back in high school for smuggling lab grade potassium out of the science lab and flinging small chunks in the pool.  Way, way more reactive than sodium.  Hooking 6 gas jets to a single bunsen burner was also a good time had by all.
