The Fourth of July weekend is almost upon us, and that means it's time to begin considering your fireworks purchases, if you are, like me, inclined toward causing explosions. This year, we'll be following the advice I recorded for posterity last year on the selection and purchase of holiday incendiaries and explosives. I need to remember to prep the model rocket.
We also need to figure out what soft and non-shrapnel causing items, such as melons or other fruit, might be good candidates for detonation with some large scale, uhm, items we may or may not have in the works. Any suggestions?
I'm wondering whether we should try a sparkler bomb, if possible. Have any of you built one? What's involved?
What other explosive shenangians are you planning for next weekend? Any tips for buying or deployment? Discuss.
