    If you want to save an activated glow stick, put it in the freezer, they last almost indefinitely once frozen.

    once the glow sticks are done throw them in a fire, they burst into flames after the plastic melts and the liquid dumps

    That is DEFINATLY not a good idea. the liquid is VERY poisonous.

    That is true, but if your in a large open area (outside) the toxins are dispersed into the air. Just don't stand in the smoke

    Also true, but the toxins are still poisonous, even at low levels. The plastic that is burning also has a level poison in it and that, combined with the liquid (if you know what the liquid is called, tell me) is enough to get you sick at most. Another thing that occured to me is that when the liquid boils, it becomes vapor (I don't know what temperature that is) and will be dispersed through more than just the smoke, it's also in the air as you breathe it. It also has long term effects.

    anthracene, its a hydrocarbon. its boiling point is about 300 degrees Celsius id also assume that most of the fumes would be burned off in the fire

    Fumes don't nessesarly burn...However, it would become a vapor...But that doesn't really burn either...But yes, MOST of the fumes would not, by theory, be gone, just be in a more dispersed steam, for instance. Am I getting confusing???

    Also, i should do a study or something

    The largest light stick war that had to have ever taken place was in Saudi Arabia after Desert Storm came to a close. We (the Marines) coalesced back to the division camp and a few nights were spent with what seemed thousands of marines throwing 15" long cyalumes back and forth in the desert night. It was a great relief of stress and an AMAZING sight to be hold. Even a mile away, it looked like multi-colored lasers and tracers going back and forth. Great fun to be had unless you get clocked.
