No.

It goes back a couple of hundred years. It was called "The Human Salamander."

Don't try it unless you no what you are doing. Lead is poisonous. So is Wood's Alloy.

TAIT, leave it alone. You are not yet experienced enough for things like this. Learn to do the things you claim to do in a proper manner.

Just a tip, the "lead" used is another far different mtal. in one case, a pure metal, in another, an alloy. The oldest method used yet a third.
Thanks for listening.

This really isn't just a magic trick anyway. Physics professors do it all the time when teaching about thermodynamics.

I remember my physics teacher explaining why it worked the way it did (he said he'd never do it himself, though, but some of his professors had). If only I had paid a little more attention in class. Still, I wouldn't recommend trying this.

The ''formulae' that I read, more than 40 years ago, so don't ask, listed an alloy of about 5 different metals... at least two of which are 'toxic' and at least one of the 5 would be pretty hard to come by... but I am wondering WHAT method you have seen for 'dipping in molten metal'... I have seen two, and one of them I would NEVER try...

Both effects were published in a tiny and 'ancient' booklet... dating back to the 20's at least... ancient being a relative term...
