That wasn't a wise move jra, you could have injured yourself. I recall doing stupid stuff too, like emtying all the powder from an entire box of fireworks into a copper tube with one end closed over and a single banger fuse inserted in a small hole. I then closed the end over and had one hell of a banger.
I made quite a few of those and they did tend to go off with a very very loud bang.
How stupid we were as kids


My dad had a shit load of chemicals when he was a horticulturist, many of them potentially lethal (a fair few are banned now). Certain combinations of those lead to 'interesting' results. Also, we nicked a few chemicals from the chemistry lab when at secondary school. They used to let the kids light the fuses of fireworks at the local bonfire night display.

When I was at university in student accommodation I dropped custard powder from the third floor where we lived and a guy at the bottom had a lighter. We had ignition like a flame thrower.

I was brought up in the countryside for my first 18 years and we got up to all sorts of crazy shit.

Tips. Don't fanny around in a grain silo as it's a potential quicksand. We did. Don't walk around in ruins which could collapse at any time. We did. Don't walk around in thick mud are where there is broken glass, tin lids, sharp shells. We did. Don't swim in sewage infected waters. We did. You get the point.

Them were the days. Health and Safety didn't really exist in those days.

That sounds pretty normal.


Indeed. But as you implied, looking back, did one really do this. :dunno:

And carrying a can of petrol around in the boot of your car is dangerous. If you're a car crash and someone runs into the back of you on a motorway you're a bomb.

Fill your canister with water and drop it off a tall building and see if it stays intact when it hits the ground :off head:


Good heavens, don't try this at home. :monkey: LMAO!!!
G/night! :Hiya:


Someone will try it. :mrgreen:

Caveats are needed with some of the suggestions you see on here, guesty. :laughing: Some drunk could read the stuff & get ideas!

Chances are if you get hit that hard that your petrol container ruptures, your petrol tank will also rupture, other than you might be dead anyway. :doomed:


What about the fumes? Petrol stinks. If you carry it all the time and drive a lot you’re subjecting yourself to fumes.

Hmm, that might explain a few things about some of the forummers. :srs?:


Hence the need for an airtight container.

What did that cost you ? :leer:
