Warning: This is part of our Try This At Home series. As such, you are advised to try this only at home. Not in your cousin’s backyard. Not at work. Not in a school playground. Not in the broom closet of a butcher shop. Not on the launch pad for the space shuttle. Not in a shoe store. Not at the post office. Not in the middle of the highway. Not under a train. At home. Don’t make us tell you twice.
