According to the illegal chemist we talked to, not every Walter White wants to be more than a low-level highsmith.
6 Realities of Cooking Illegal Drugs (Not Seen on TV)

#6. Some People Get Into Manufacturing Drugs Because It Sounds Like a Fun Hobby
One day, a friend of mine mentioned in idle conversation that you could use nutmeg to get high. It’s true — I looked it up. Nutmeg contains a psychoactive chemical called myristicin, but what caught my eye was that it’s also about 2 percent safrole. It was a revelation. Safrole happens to be one of the main reagents for MDMA (Ecstasy). I thought to myself, “Oh. These aren’t manufactured out of thin air. These are from plants.”
I resolved to learn how to make it — mostly out of idle curiosity rather than criminal intent. I suspect a lot of nerdy kids get into this business because they love drugs and fall down the rabbit hole of studying how all these wacky chemicals affect their brains.

Refractive Indexes and Invisibility (A real-life magic trick)

When light refracts from two different substances with the same index of refraction, the materials cannot be distinguished from one another. Here, Pyrex and vegetable oil have the same index of refraction so that the test tube appears invisible in vegetable oil. The light isn’t bouncing off  off of the pyrex tube, just travelling straight through. 

However, water and pyrex have a very different refractive index. The light travelling through the water refracts off the pyrex and reflects back in to your eye, so it does not appear invisible. 

When you see the pyrex test tube under the oil, you are actually just viewing the air inside it before it becomes filled as the pyrex itself is invisible.

Solar system ring :D
This ring features a complete band of Gibeon Meteorite framed and mounted in an 18k gold band. The meteorite has been etched with nitric acid to reveal the characteristic patterns, or Widmanstatten figures, of iron meteorites, and set with 9 gemstones representing the planets of our Solar System. Mercury is represented by a rust colored Sapphire, Venus a golden Sapphire, Earth an irradiated blue Diamond, Mars a Ruby, Jupiter an Opal, Saturn a Cats Eye Chrysoberyl with an inlaid 24k gold ring, Uranus a green Sapphire, Neptune a blue Sapphire and Pluto a black Diamond.
The band of meteorite is separate from the interior gold ring. The planets can rotate around your finger :)
