Glad you liked it. But now I'll be tempted to spend half a day scanning in a couple of other things. I'd spend more time cleaning them up, but I have so many things to scan! Maybe 20 years of FAC news and a few other newsletters, and that book, and a few OLD magazines. Pretty soon I will have that whole issue of Air Trails scanned.
I suspect that if one thought for a long time about how to do it, was careful, and did it outside on a very humid day right after a rain storm, you could get the hydrogen together without too much risk to life and limb. Especially if you could find anti static balloons and gloves. Inside, I could see a good leak blowing out all the windows, at minimum. I've seen acetylene and air go off with great energy, outside, on a long ago July 4th. This ought to be similar.
