When I was in college I had a couple roomates that used to live in farms in Northern California and lived in the same town. They told me of a story of rigging a 55 gallon drum with a spark plug, a length of wire and a car battery and running the hoses from an oxy-acetylene tanks to the drum.

Ka-boom!

Well, maybe that guy has learned, that when dousing a huge pile of brush with gasoline.. don't spread it all over the damn place. He had gas going everywhere.

And I have never made anything of an explosive nature. <looks both ways>

... that wasn't hella fun. Grade 9, almost blowing my figures off did teach me the value of long wicks or electric igniter's.... Taped a HB pencil core (graphite) to a wick then ran power to both ends of the graphite. Ran wire a fair distance and plugged in power pack. Watch the thing glow then kaboom.

As I got older it's amazing how much safer I became. Lame ass I know.

Of course all the above was in my dreams..... I would NEVER have done anything like that.

Oh, check this one out. Totally James Bond. http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=44e_1182212825
Total chick magnet.

I'm thinking it won't be long until that guy wins a Darwin Award.

Hope Pumbaa doesn't see this. He's likely to find the guy and kick his a$$!
