One of Mario's most iconic power ups is the fire flower. You can't tell me you don't get excited when you see that flower and know you are about to cause some fiery havoc in the Mushroom Kingdom... and everywhere else. Really. EVERYWHERE. You can even shoot a fireball underwater. Why? How? Theorists, I want answers and I will not stop until I figure out what the SECRET behind Mario's fireball is. Let's a-go!

    I would like to see an episode on Pikmin. I’m curious if evolution could allow Pikmin to actually happen, also I wonder how strong Olimar/Alph is because they can throw Pikmin pretty far for their size.

    Of course, the fire could just be magic. Also, the chemical model you kept flashing for Oxygen was water (one big atom, two small ones) rather than O2 (two same sized atoms).

    It would have to be something that nature could produce though. Maybe not synthetic rubber, but something more like actual rubber that comes from a plant, and ammonia is somewhat plausible, as our kidneys use it to neutralize acid. The other part of ammonia perchlorate is more dubious however, since perchloric acid is required to be combined with the ammonia in a chemical reaction, and is apparently unstable at room temperature. Also, according to many material safety data sheets on perchloric acid, it is very corrosive. It is also highly reactive to metals AND organic compounds... including wood. I was looking into how ammonia perchlorate is made in a lab and typing in information but wasn't really sure what I was talking about as I attempted to go into why it wouldn't work, which involves other acids and reagants, and barium perchlorate being involved but suffice to say, a fire flower wouldn't have access to these chemicals in nature so there's no way that's rocket fuel.
