No kidding!!! Like making black powder bombs, nitroglycerin, nitrogen tri-iodide, etc. It's amazing what a bunch of smart boys will do if given unfettered, unsupervised access to a chemistry storeroom. It's also a wonder we did not kill or maim ourselves doing these things.

All the high school principal said when he discovered us all alone in the chemistry lab after the teacher had a heart attack was "Oh my God!!". Nowadays the FBI and BATFeCes would have had us all in custody as terrorists......

I used a real .22 revolver with homemade blanks (pulled bullets, wax melted in) in my senior play. They didn't even check it.
I love sanding.

Back in my day many neighborhood hooligans made "crater makers" out of old bb-gun CO2 cartridges, many played bicycle DEMOLITION-DERBY with NO stinkin' helmets, and many took others bicycles for "Ghost Rides" off huge jump ramps (mangling said banana-seat turd bikes) and other amusing activities that should STILL have zero repercussions.
Back when I was growing up it was considered NORMAL for boys to be on the farm dump BLOWIN' STUFF UPP !
Most would get one arrested nowadays.
When in doubt, WHACK the GAS and DITCH the brake !!!
No DIRECT and MEASURABLE Harm=NO Foul advocate

If you are NOT FLYING LOW in the left lane, you need to GET THE #$&@ OUT of it !

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL
, if you have to ask, you probably aren't
