Learn Why White Phosphorus Is Considered A Terrifying Substance (Video)

 

A while ago, I was able to get some chunks of white phosphorus. It’s stored under water to protect it from air and it starts smoking phosphorus oxides the moment it’s exposed. It’s often used to make large amounts of smoke, but it’s also sometime used as a weapon, which is a bit terrifying. This is because, white phosphorus is not only very toxic, but it’s also super hard to put out when it’s on fire. It’s also pretty effective if you’re confronting a drug lord after he stole a batch of your homemade meth from one of your former chemistry students
