Sodium source discovered in a biological laboratory! Discoverers aver to be innocent bystanders and gainsay any involvement in the debacle.
Anyway, the UCL Darwin Building has been subject to frequent lab-relocations as long as the complex exists  and the remainder of a more recent move was a shabby rusty old bottle of elemental sodium under paraffin oil. Of course my first intention was to throw the bugger off London Bridge and have a little fun with the gurgling hydrogen, but Andrea was strictly against any of my superb ideas. Eventually, someone from the chemistry department is going to pick it up and use it for more «useful» things .
 Already Darwin himself frequently moved his chest of drawers! Therefore, we merely stick to a very old tradition.
 I bet they wanna throw it off the bridge as well.
