Cody'sLab : Now we need a liquid tin bath.

The Rocket Nerd : “This is very basic. Let’s go get some pumpkin spice latte” I’m dying lmaoooooooo EDIT: I hope you realize he says this in the video. I didn’t make it

Davy McCarty : Who came to the comments to see someone talking bout his haircut...

Micah Philson : *YOU FINALLY CONQUERED IT!!!* The White Whale has finally been vanquished!

P F : That’s some sexy hair right there

Xx_pro_minecraft_gamer_420_Xx : should've just smelt a stack of sand smh

Touya Todoroki : Barber: *"How would you like your hair to be today?"* Boron Guy: *"Ever seen a chicken that went into a washing machine and got cleaned with borax soap to then be dried with a hair dryer"* Barber: *"I got you!"* 4:00

Cholula Hot Sauce : I don’t think anyone understands perseverance quite like you and the rest of HTME team. Congratulations!

John Dough : 9:34, your dog wanted nothing to do with your fire

CoolbreezeFromSteam : That boron guy's hair looks like he had the greaser hair from the 50s, and just tried to keep it going as his hairline receded.

Kaitan : Many years ago i was in a "Glashütte". Baically a German Glass producer. they explained us there that to get rid of of the greenish tone from the Iron impurities they add "braunstein" which is, if my School chemistry doesnt fail me, Mangandioxid. While Iron is the yellowish green tone Mangandioxid will make it violett. Both are complementary colours so you end up with gray clear glass. Thats what they at least explained to us. But seeing as you mentioned making soap you propably knew that the Mangandioxid is know as "Glasmacherseife", Glas maker soap.

Richard Head : *_Clearly_*_ you've broken the glass ceiling of DIY technology._

Helike Long : Man, I got weirdly happy to see you finally nailed it! I'm really proud to see how far you got in so little time and very proud to say I followed and supported since the beginning <3 Keep up with that incredible work you are doing, you're amazing and I'm a big fan <3

SPartist : Awesome, I know it was a struggle, I remember that original glass video and how much you guys struggled with it, glad you finally got it to work.

Sea Salt : *Just use the Minecraft recipe lmao*

Icylapras24 : I know how to make clear glass easily. *you put sand in a furnace and smelt it*

Kurt Boczarski : Glass floats on molten tin... that how they use to make flat glass panes

Successful Slav : whats the big deal? just smelt some sand in a furnace and there you go, glass as easy as getting iron ingots

Pedro Rimoli : That man’s hair, thats harder to achieve than clear glass

Simba : The greenish color is due to iron impurities, which might be contained in your starting material. Or it is is just due to the multiple purings on steel plates.

Lotsa Liv : Top boron sales 2017: slime

nonamelikethis : "We are very basic. Lets go get a pumpkin spice latte." Dude im freaking dead 😂

Space duck : This man never gives up. What a boss

Mihai Vlad : I don't see enough comments about the Boron Guy's hair

Matt Long : Hi Andy, I really enjoyed the video. It's amazing to see how far you've come. Have you considered washing your sand with hot HCl to remove any trace iron impurities? When you dissolved your roasted sand/NaOH mixture and filtered out the insolubles, the color was reddish brown. To me, that suggests there were Fe(III) ions in solution. If you were to wash your sand in HCL with your sep funnel (followed by washing steps with distilled water) a few times before the roasting step, I bet you could greatly reduce the iron impurities. Anyways good luck.

Ali Mota : But Can we cast Obsidian ??

Rae Rohan : I know you're probably sick of glass-working by now... but I kind of wanted to see a stained glass window. Maybe one day, in the future, you'll do a "making a house from scratch" series and include it then? Maybe that's just a little too ambitious though? 😅

Dylan Britt : Lol who else just came down here to read how many comments about his hair there are XD. Edit: omg I just realized it’s hollow 6:30

// BeatLaunch \\ : He was so happy at boron!! Some may say, “Just like a kid at a borax mine!!!”
