Introduction: Dry Ice Bomb

This is pretty simple. This will show you how to make a super simple bomb type thing. Its actually pretty dangerous, so dont do it around people and you might want to wear gloves as it could explode as your screwing on the cap.

Step 1: Items Needed:

1. Bottle (different bottles have different breaking strengths, try one with a thinner layer of plastic)
2. Dry ice (Sometimes hard to find, i found mine at my local grocery store)
3. Water
4. Gloves (dry ice is cold obviously)

Step 2: Making the Dry Ice Bomb:

step 1. Fill the bottle with water (warm water works best)

step 2. drop a good sized piece of dry ice into the bottle

step 3. Quickly screw the cap on the bottle and run (or throw it)

step 4. Enjoy

    isn't that illegal in some areas?

    Yeah this is illegal in the U.S. I think so I'm not trying it.

    All the more reason to do it ;)

    What? "me do it allthetime"? 1. failspeel. 2. You really should follow those laws. and ripstik  = fail.

    Now that thats outta the way, best works in 2 litre bottles XD
    also consider that bigger amounts of dry ice wont mean a bigger explosion. It would be quicker to explode, and explode in your hands however enough vinger and bicarb will result in the same result. Its best if you under compress it, so that it wont explode by itself. In which you can simply through it at the ground cap first.

    A piece of advice, dont stand close to it. I mean you can. But youll never hear the bang... just a loud ringing. OOOh and dont pack it in a cardboard box filled with packing peanuts.. The mess is a terribly annoying one to clean up.

    i think it is in sedona, maybe even cottonwood

    poke a hole in the top to get a jet put a teeny hole and you have a rocket!
