Sneaky Uses for Everday Things - Cy Tymony

I saw an ad for this book in an old magazine somewhere ... maybe Discover, and got it from the library. It promised to teach how to "turn a penny into a radio, make a flood alarm with an aspirin, change milk into plastic, extract water and electricity from thin air, turn on a TV with your ring, and other amazing feats." A lot of the tricks involve magnets, or making little simple circuits with foil and hooking them up to stereos and such. My favorite trick, though, was turning milk into plastic (you heat it up, add vinegar, and the casein separates out). Cute, but mostly non-essential.
