How to Create Your Own Quantum Entanglement Experiment

Recently I've been addicted to Google+ and I have found that my posts have really slowed down. So here is something to keep you busy. An at home project that you can do to generate your own entangled particles and then verify that they are entangled.
Entangled particles are one of those quantum mechanics effects that sounds like something right out of Star Trek. Basically you generate two entangled particles and then the act of measuring the polarity of one particle causes the other's polarity to be set. This occurs now matter how far apart the particles are apart and can happen faster than the speed of light. Strange indeed.
The experiment is described in detail here: here (Part 1) and here (Part 2).
