    Wow, this is really cool. Bet it took you a long time to figure it out... well, for me it would.

    How long does it take fir the bottle to start breaking? Doesnt the bottle get extremely hot? Aren't there vapors or fumes that could be dangerous or at the very least awful smelling. It just seems unclear. Be more clear.
