If bird on a leg lamp is expensive, what about the other leg lamp?

Nice...but where is the rest of this lamp?

Your sketch can sense ongoing process events in time.
Your sketch can make events to control it over time.

Fun fact: Peter Billingsley (who went by Peter Michaelsen at the time) was my chemistry student in 1988.

So you taught him not to discard anything after dissection.

We dissected water in chemistry and got fire. Then we learned about air and earth but still can't make gold.

No, that's physics.

Here's an alchemist trick demo: mix gold leaf with sulfur. Heat the mixture until the sulfur partially melts, and cast the mixture into pea sized balls. Present it to the king as sulfur, then boil the beads in sweet vitriol. Ignite the liquid (sweet vitriol contains ether and sulfuric acid) and it completely burns off with an intense blue flame and extremely acrid smoke (sulfur oxides.) Small blobs of gold remain when it cools. Do this when the king talks about beheading his alchemist.

That fringe wouldn't last long.  :)

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

On Terry Pratchett's Discworld, alchemists perfected the trick of turning gold into less gold.
