More bad ideas as they come! Images coming soon!
I live in Massachusetts where fireworks are illegal :a
So if your state has decided to ban fireworks here are some fun ways to celebrate the 4th!
3 spray paint cans; red, white and blue
9 Cans of Engine Starter Fluid
1 Rifle/Pistol (preferably with scope)
2 Fire Extinguishers
9 road flares
1 roll of duct tape
1 Homemade Catapult
1 BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIG open space, preferably concrete. Sand or dirt will suffice.
Take 3 flares and duct tape them so that they form a triangle ex.
Duct tape them towards the bottom about 3/4's the way down.
Next duct tape the red white and blue spray paint cans to the flares like this
Now set off all 3 flares very quickly and place them in a receptacle, a metal drum or a discarded washing machine/ dryer/ refrigerator works well!
After a loud noise AND the flares go out, go back and check out your patriotic drum/ washing machine/ dryer/ refrigerator!
First take a can of starter fluid then duct tape it to a flare, you can either duct tape the whole length of the flare (havenâ€™t tried yet) or just the bottom quarter (tried, works)
Now start the flare and place it in an OPEN area, makes a lot of fire.
Noise is loud, fireball is at least 15' high (some have told me 30', I think it's a bit of a stretch) good fun for all!
You need a gun for this, I don't know if I would recommend this one, I haven't tried it and you need to be at least a decent shot.
Take the starter fluid and place it within the catapult, when shooter is ready have the catapult fire the fluid like a clay pigeon
Take aim and fire, should make a rain of fire.
I wouldn't try #3 if I were you.
The Works Bomb!
(Thanks to ckin2001 for reminding me of a classic!)
You'll need a bottle of "The Works" toilet bowl cleaner, an empty 2 liter bottle (usually consumed at the test site :)), tin foil and of course duct tape.
Fill the bottle with the works and add the tinfoil. Duct tape the cap on and hurl your little pressure bomb end over end!
Makes a loud noise good for scaring the crap out of that neighbor you hate or setting off car alarms :bigsmile: ) .
There you have it! 3(+1) stupid things that none of you should do but more than likely will.
