Make your own fireworks…WTF?

At about.com, we have a lesson in how to make your very own, homemade firecrackers

Firecrackers are extremely easy and inexpensive to make yourself. You may want to make your own firecrackers because you are interested in learning how to make simple fireworks or it may be you are unable to obtain fireworks where you live. Fortunately, the materials needed to make your own firecrackers are very common.
Homemade Firecracker Materials
    * tape (e.g., transparent tape)
    * toy gun caps (either the tape or the rings) or black powder
    * fuse (you can make your own fuse)
    * pin or needle 

Firecrackers are extremely easy and inexpensive to make yourself. You may want to make your own firecrackers because you are interested in learning how to make simple fireworks or it may be you are unable to obtain fireworks where you live. Fortunately, the materials needed to make your own firecrackers are very common.

Homemade Firecracker Materials:

* tape (e.g., transparent tape) * toy gun caps (either the tape or the rings) or black powder

* fuse (you can make your own fuse)  Oh, Goody!  Somebody give me a shoestring.

* pin or needle 

Who in their right mind would encourage THIS hobby?  If you’re so broke that you can’t afford to purchase fireworks, you’re too stupid to fire them. Enough said. Budweiser and Bottle Rockets don’t mix.

    We spent $16 on our backyard fireworks last night, about $1 per bang or $2 a minute, which seems just about right. As far as dismantling caps to make my own–that’s what we used to do when I was 10 or 11, and it wasn’t even worth it then.

    So, I just got back from Wal-Mart with all of the ingredients in hand. I’m following your directions step-by-step, when all of a sudden the gun caps are missing. Thought maybe the old lady took em’, but then realized they got caught in my mullet. Lynrd Skynrd ROCKS! InnI
