Oh, Dear.  
I just found a paper in my office entitled "Top Secret Rocket Science Experiment," written in what I think is my ten year-old's handwriting.

It included a list:

1. clay
2. gas
3. mud
4. goo (?!)
5. baking soda
6. vinegar
7. sand
8. Coke
9. red food coloring
10. match
11. mini trampoline (?!)
12. wings (???)
13. cone

I'm torn between being proud that he's thinking outside the box, wondering if he's seen any Pinky and the Brain/Coyote & Road Runner cartoons and being very, very afraid.
I am:: my office
I feel:: busybusy

Goo? Not terribly scientific. This can only end badly. ;)

I read this first as if it were a list you created for yourself as a 10-year-old, and I was impressed with your ingenuity right up until you disavowed knowledge of it.

Oh dear is right. Have your boys read "the boys book on survival"? It teaches them how to do things like this. *winces*

Love that icon. Really love it. :)

Haha. Awesome. I think you should be proud. Are you going to ask him about it?

Yikes on #2 and #10. OMG.

But great thinking outside the box! You must totally save it in order to terrify him when he's expecting children of his own. And when you hand him the bill for coloring your gray hair.

And this list actually made me laugh out aloud. :)
