YouTube as an Educator's Resource

I decided to consult YouTube for a nice G-rated movie showing the chemical reaction of baking soda and vinegar, also known as the erupting volcano experiment that younger students sometimes make at home for science projects.

The search wasn't helpful but was a little revealing: most of the 1000+ videos are titled "VINEGAR BOMBS" or "CHECK THIS BOMB OUT" or "HOW TO MAKE A BOMB" and show young teenagers throwing closed containers of said reactants into the street to watch them explode.

Serious? Parents: why are you letting your kids do shit like this?
