Growing Crystals

A two month experiment has just come to an end. I dissolved a pound of table salt in a plastic rubbermaid thing and let it sit out. Interesting. Perhaps I felt that I should have had a bigger chemistry set when I was a kid. Acutally, I think it was just that I got hooked on blowing up fish and frogs with firecrackers and was disappointed that the walmart chemistry sets didn't do the same. Why do most of us go through a laugh-at-blowing-things-to-pieces phase? What the hell is that?
