Look Around You - Sulphur

from experiment 2, an investigation into the effect of iron on sulphur (6:26): "for this experiment, we will be using a common household item rich in iron. that's right: champagne. a quantity of champagne is poured into a large glass trough. we're using about 17 bottles worth. there's a lot of cheap brands on the market these days, but we suggest using one of the better ones. there's no hiding quality. next, a quantity of sulphur is added and the mixture is agitated, producing sulphagne. write that down."
