The coolest book ever....
So doing pure library work today, shifting *tons* of reference books (literally the whole lot from Z#### to QC so far) and I ran across the coolest book ever. Asking me to shift science reference books is kind of like sending a kid to his room with his PS2 as punishment. Anyway, it's a great way to learn the collection...
Here's the book:

This little series of books has recipes for everything from pyrotechnics to handcream! How 'bout re-creating the army ration vegetable soup? It's in there.... Perfume... Asbestos insulation... Yellow smoke... If you can only get the ingredients.
Now I just need a reference question where they ask me how to make moustache pomade...
