What's the ad for?
It looks like Skil-Craft made some pretty cool science kits, with the chemistry one appealing to me the most. Out of all the kits, this one must be the most changed. With the rise of terrorism, illicit drug manufacturing and crazy lawsuits, the chemistry kit of old has been all but neutered. Now the kid in me thinks that this sucks; the chemist in me (chemistry being my chosen profession) has to believe that this is a good thing. Still, most of the old stories of childhood chemistry experiments gone wrong are pretty funny.
