Introduction: How to Melt a Hole in a Coke Can

I was bored one day and I had some strobe fireworks and n empty can lying around. I put them together and came up with this!--WARNING--Fire can burn you! Also the can is hot for about 30 seconds after the fire goes away

Step 1: Materials

You will need:
empty can
Flashing signal fireworks
lighter
________________________________
Optional
M85 fircrackers

Step 2: Setup

Hold the strobe at the bottom(don't worry it has a long fuse)
Light it
Let go(make sure it goes in the hole)
run away and watch

Step 3: Optional

Now's the part where the firecrackers are used.Just stick it in after the can cools down, light it, and run away.

Those M-95 firecrackers probably only have 0.5 - 1 grams of flash powder.

i think this may actually be burning, and not melting, but either way it is another excuse to play with potentially explosive pyrotechnics :)

In some places, such as Virgina, or other places, it isn't illegal, it depends on the state, is what I'm trying to say.

If they're illegal, then why does sheltons sell them? Thats where I bought all this stuff from. I don't live in the city and my neighbors are far enough away they don't care. ```` The reason for the beer can was I didn't have any empty pop cans lying around.

That's pretty cool the spark throwers heat up and weaken the can then firecrackers blow a hole in the side.
