Sparkler Bombs?

I have been looking at some firework instructables for the Fourth and I noticed that there were no sparkler bomb istructables. What?! I find this strange that you can find them on other sites, but not this site, which is centered around instructions. I can't post one because the ones that I made, due to lack of instructions, did not explode loudly and work properly. I have seen plenty of working ones that a friend made and they work perfectly: you can see the shockwave. The only impressive one I made shot a jet of green flame 10 or so feet in the air, but it's not suppost to do that. Sparkler bombs: simple and easy to make, yet not on Instructables. I know you know how to make them

Since this topic has resurfaced, I encourage readers to check with their local law enforcement agencies before making or using sparkler bombs, as the international situation has meant that a number of laws have changed since this topic was first written.

For instance, a sparkler bomb will earn you time in court, and possibly jail, in most EU nations.

Sometimes it just makes me wonder what Instruactables allows to post....

The site ToS make it very clear that personal safety is the responsibility of the reader, not the author.

Plus, there is that sensible core membership who are willing and able to add a bit of perspective to a Hold my Beer post.

Get sparklers and a small soda bulb (for whipped cream) aluminium foil and tape.

Cut foil big enough to house soda bulb and crushed sparklers wrapped a chunk.

Crush sparklers on foil place bulb ontop and wrap keeping bottom of bulb end open to place a sparkler for a fuse, tightly wrap and duct tape up.

Will blow a mailbox to pieces, take a chunk out of wooden power pole,

Accidents have happened, sometimes instead of blowing up it will be a deadly projectile.

The videos I have seen of sparkler ï " aren't technically . explode, sparkler just catch on fire. Anyway, I do believe that they are very simple to make, just attach a mass of sparklers together.

Wouldn't suggest it but hows about getting one of them big glass bottles of bud with the screw on caps, then snipping of the handle of a spakler, then light it and pop it in the bottle and screw the lid back on? The smoke and gases from the burning sparkler would eventually make the lid pop off(unlikely)or make the glass shatter with quite a boom(and shrapnel, nasty shrapnel). As I said I really would'ent suggest this the whole idea of making devices from sparklers seems very childish and KewL, not to mention being considerably unsafe.
