[quote:cjrocks:MV8xMTcxMDUyXzE4OTU2OTI2XzgxNzc0QTdB] You can turn lead into gold by bombarding it with protons, or maybe alpha particles, but it is very unlikely that any process will result in turning lead, with more protons, into gold, with fewer protons. No isotopes of lead are fissionable, so neutron bombardment won't work. Alpha and protons, should they stay in the nucleus, will increase the atomic number, not decrease it. Positrons are anti-electrons and unlikely to get past the electron cloud without being annihilated, literally, in a "cloud" of gamma rays. At best, a stream of electrons shot into the nucleus could convert some protons into neutrons, and lower the atomic number. Each lead atom would have to have enough electrons interacting with three protons to convert then to neutrons. The mass number would stay the same, and the atomic number would decrease by 3. 82-Pb-206 + 3(-1e-0) --> 79-Au-206 [/quote]
Find a thunderstorm over yellow sand.
Put on rubber gloves.
Place two weights from tire shop (lead)
in a glass canning jar.
Dig a hole in sand, about two feet down.
Put the jar in the sand, upright.
Stick a piece of 10' 5/8" rebar in the jar so it points up
at the sky.
Fill in the jar with sand and bury completely.
Make sure rebar is pointing up and end stays at the
bottom of the jar.
It's okay if it's raining hard and everything gets wet.
Stand back. Okay stand way back.
Wait for lightning to strike the rebar.
After a strike, dig it all out.
You'll have a nugget of gold inside the glass.
Just break it out of there, if you want it.
Risk-lighting strike before you let go of the rebar.
Connect in series, four car batteries.
Place a quartz crystal in the bottom of a jar.
Sprinkle ground cinnibar without gold fleck.
Put mercury on the cinnibar.
Place lead filings on top of that. Fill with water.
Place leads from the closest battery into the water.
Put a charger on the battery furthest from the jar,
Set to low.
Plug it in.
48 hours later, the lead filings should have transmuted.
Batteries emit toxic fumes and need lots of ventilation. They can explode.
And DON'T BELIEVE A FUCKING THING YOU READ ON THIS WEBSITE.
