Oh the joys of chemistry! Sadly we only got to play with Sodium and Pottasium Mac. In my day I don't think Rubidium had been added to the Periodic Table! As for Caesium - Wow!

Mind you we did produce many a nasty smelling concoction during our A-Level chem practical classes. Producing ether was also fun - especially when the end of the delivery tube was stuck up a classmates nostrils!

I remember our Chemistry master fondly. Mr Baig - a Pakistani Moslem (teaching in a Catholic Grammar school in 1971!). We spent many lessons trying to convert our chemistry master to the Catholic Faith. He didn't last too long in that environment - it was probably the ether that got to him!
