I woke up this morning feeling a little curious about the barium that I drank yesterday. I thought to myself, "Self... what was that stuff?!" So, I asked my friend Google about it and he told me all about barium. It turns out that it's a chemical element. It's on the periodic table and everything. It's powerful stuff, Barium.
It turns out that it's used in the manufacturing of pyrotechnics.
That's right. I said pyrotechnics.
No wonder I felt like my stomach was going to explode yesterday. I'm pretty sure that it very nearly did.
