I go through about two pounds of black powder a year in my homemade cannon. I am almost 60 and I still like to pretend I am a kid. I may grow older, but I refuse to grow up.

I put a gallon can of gas in the burn barrel.Thought it was full of water dad had for the tractors. Gonna watch the steam blow out the fire. After all the fires were out. Momma tore my butt up. Dad got home another butt busting then mom got me again.

That was funny. I was chewing an apple that came up and out through my nose.

We did some really dumb stuff that had our mothers gray hair by the time they were 30. Looking back on it, my mom used to cry a lot. Sometimes she'd put me and my brother in the car and drive us to the orphanage, crying all the way there, then stop at the door and tell us to get out. But, she wouldn't really make us get out. She'd drive us back home, crying all the way, and when we'd get home, she'd lay down on her bed and cry, and me and my brother would go back outside with our friends and do something else that made her and our friends mothers cry until our dads got home, and then our moms would laugh while our fathers made us all cry. Things changed once we were old enough to start school. Then our mothers smiled all of the time and our teachers cried.

When I was in high school, my buddies and I figured out if you put the fuse of a cherry bomb in the cold end of a lit cigarette, it would take about 20 to 30 minutes for the cigarette to smolder down and light the fuse.

One evening we planted about a dozen of them around town, and then sat in my car on the courthouse square listening to them go off. The Chief of Police strolled down and struck up a conversation. He had an idea we were at the bottom of it, but he couldn't figure out how we were doing it.

About the time the last one went off, he said, "Well, it's getting kind of late. I think it's time you boys headed for home".

Years ago (way before 9-11) guy I knew and his buddies at work filled a big balloon with acetylene and another with helium so the whole sheBANG would float. They then put a long wick on it and let it go. Moments later there was a massive explosion and fireball up in the air...........and shortly thereafter sirens and flashing blue and red lights appearing everywhere on the ground. Thing is they were all but under one of the flight paths for planes landing at the airport, and the authorities were about to freak out over had caused the explosion..........Needless to say nobody knew 'nothin........and to this day they still don't.........LOL

we hung several sticks of dynamite in a pine sapling on the edge of town one new years eve...10 minute fuze, you could hear it for miles.When it went off, we were back at the house. Cops were very interested. Today, you would have FBI investigate.

Ever filled a balloon with acetylene/oxygen and lit it on fire???

It took a few weeks for my beard to grow the singed places back out. LOL

Funny video.

Done that before, for some reason my 7th grade science teacher was not impressed??? Blew the bottom out of a steel 5 gal pail. Pure acetylene makes a neat black mushroom cloud...

BT,DT, I was young and STUPID and some alcohol MAY have been involved.

Filled balloon as you said, then pulled a stocking hat over it (NOT thinking what the resulting static COULD have done).

Lit it off with a torch.

The resulting BANG was deafening, and a few pieces of lint that floated down were all that was left of that knit hat!

I have OFTEN though of what would have been left of my hands if static from the balloon vs. cap would have lit it off!

Do NOT try this at home!

My metal shop/CADD teacher was teaching when my uncle was in school. When my uncle was in shop class, Mr Johnson would fill a balloon with oxygen, one with acetylene, and one with a mix, take them outside and hit them with the torch to demonstrate how much more explosive it is mixed with oxygen.

That year it was raining, so he put the kids in the washroom, and lit the balloons in the shop.

When they could start to hear anything again, there was a really meek voice on the intercom asking if anyone was still alive.

Fake for sure. The room lights are back on after the "explosion". But it is funny the first time.

JD we did that with a small trash bag. Filled it up tight and taped the top shut, inserting a piece of shop rag for a wick before we taped it. Tossed it in the middle of the barn yard, lit it and ran like ell to hide behind a truck. Took a little bit for the wick to burn down but when it went off it darn near blew the windows out of everything around from the concussion from the blast. We thought sure the cops were going to be called. Never have and never will do that again.

the run to hide is always the best part, isn't it!

pure fear after lighting a wick of something you have NO idea what it's going to do.

have done anything like that in decades, but remember quite a few of those moments.
