Yes. Online works. All sorts of chemical suppliers offer those chemicals. But then you get flagged if you're not employed by a chemical company. Heck, I can't even order glassware without causing a ruckus. If only there were some way to make meth without needing all those specialized flasks and tubing. Ugh.

University research stores sell glassware for the lab and chemicals like liquid N2. If you're a college student, you can make big bucks...

At least it wasn't real urine, just the smell. If someone peed their pants that would be even more unfortunate.

I work with ammonium hydroxide, and you underestimate just how strong even a 29% solution is. It's horrible and choking. You'd be begging for the sweet smell of regular urine in less than five minutes.

When it first spilled and we got the first whiff, I actually thought someone peed their pants. And it smells horrible. Think If you wandered hell for a week, ate nothing but asparagus and drank no water, then peed. After the experiment finished the entire class ran to the garden and took several deep breaths. Oxygen has never felt that good

Yeah, typical! Oxygen gets all the credit, while nitrogen does most of the heavy lifting and doesn't even get a mention! Nitrogen is the Jan Brady of diatomic gases -- "Oxygen! Oxygen! Oxygen!"

Wasn't ammonia. It was a dilute solution of ammonium hydroxide in ethanol. Still smelled like the sewerage of hell

I hope the chemicals weren't harmful to the lungs. Not sure if it's correct policy to continue to work in a lab under such conditions.
