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.
