    Is that just your front garden? My local green space/park is smaller than that and I live in a semi rural area.

    I served three years in the artillery. Things like that doesn’t really excite me anymore…

    Honestly… no ancient computer that was available for demolition? This is a hardware site.

      i don’t think i’d like chunks of computer parts flying at me. Fruit is at least biodegradable and not terribly sharp.

        Maybe just a Vista box?

    next year go with a 6 inch in dia. 5 ft long steel pipe open on both ends. purchase random croquet sets at garage sales, then use pipe and fireworks to launch croquet balls into lower atmosphere… it’s awesome. if you have water near, i would recommend trying to hit it. just brace pipe on the ground, don’t hold it….

    Ahh, the beauty of wrapping a whole bunch of sparklers with electrical tape. Takes me back to highschool where we made one out of 3 bricks of sparklers. Blew it up at the highschool lawn where it made a 1 1/2 ft crater. Set off all the car alarms for about 4 blocks. Good times, good times.

    I love watching stuff explode, just wonder why you didn’t do any of it in slow-mo. Surely you’ve got access to a camera that can record at 500 or 1000 fps, right?

    Jr. Damage sure seems to enjoy the explosive disassembly of fruitstuffs.

      Dont feel bad, I live in Oklahoma and you can’t buy stuff that makes that big of a boom here.

        I’m an Okie too, however, Arkansas is only an hour away and Missouri is about 2 hours. It’s a small price to pay to get your hands on better stuff.

    Gotta love the maniacal laughter at 1:50 and 2:20.
