      Yes actually. I accidentally blew up a glass bottle in the lab when I made a lot of gas mixing two chemicals together. No one was hurt and the chemicals were contained safely and cleaned up afterwards. This was about 7 years ago now and since then I’ve done 100s of experiments with dangerous chemicals and haven’t had any accidents.
