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

Fireball Bomb that works like an A bomb

This is an improved version of lemonie's Instructable Big explosion, bang, fireball, so hoorah to him for it. But any way, my idea is that I wanted to control the exact moment it went off, so this brought me to my first idea, just put black powder and a fuse in the lid of a butane can. Well this didn't work, I just got a jet of flame, plenty cool, but no fireball or musroom cloud. I realized I lacked the essential ingrediants of compression and rapid combustion. So I made this. It's literally a firing mortar for the can, the idea is a non-explosive shell (a coffee can filled with cement with a large bean can set inside to make an orofice) filled with an explosive, with the can of butane in the middle, and a cement stepping stone on top. The idea is that the explosive, when detonated, implodes the can, thus pressurizing it, then ignites the butane, thus decompressing it, A.K.A BOOM. The stepping stone by this point would have come of, thus allowing the expanding hot gasses to disperse. For saftey, the entire contraption would be put in hole in the ground, with no green grass growing all around. The reason I haven't tested it is that I had a very close shave with the cops for the butane can incendierary grenade. Disclaimer, I am not liable for what you do with this information, nor am I responsable for any damage to person or property, in other words, it's your problem if you kill your self. If you haven't yet noticed why this works like an A bomb, what in tarnation are you doing on this site? But, for credebility, I'll say. The main method of detonating a fission weapon is the implosion method. Prior to detonation a nuclear weapon consists of one or more pieces of weapon-grade fissionable material which are subcritical in configuration.The implosion method is when one sphere of material is compressed (through an explosion) to make it supercritical, which leads to a chain reaction, which results in the destruction of the atom, leading too duh, a big explosion.

Bomb Defuse Game?

I am somewhat new to Arduino, and I wanted to create a project, but don't know where to start.The project I am looking to create is a bomb-diffuse game that uses a 4 digit 7 segment display that will count down from a variable amount of seconds.It will be activated by a 2-position key switch, and deactivated by a code. (10 input buttons).Once four buttons are pressed, it needs to check the order and the numbers pressed and subtract five seconds if wrong. I may also want it to beep every second once it reaches 30 seconds, and flash a red LED every second from start.Any pointers, suggestions, or solutions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

DIY Minor Explosive

Does anyone know of any under the sink materials to make small explosives out of. I have looked on the internet and found kn03 and all that stuff and stump remover and stuff but I can't get that now. I am looking for an answer like, Mix some alcohol with bleach, put it on a towel to dry. Then mix it with (fill in blank) and let it dry again. The cut the towel and it is explosive powder.  I know that recipe is fake but that is the kind of thing I am looking for. I am not going to hurt somebody. I am just interested in pyro stuff and have been trying a few things but it is kind of hard to do it right. Please help!

The best way to destroy a treehouse?

Ok, basically, these guys claimed to have part-built our treehouse. We are 100% certain that they didn't, our neighbour helpfully pointed a cctv camera at it, and has been there since it's initial frame construction. Now, they won't let us in our tree house... they've padlocked it... It's on private land, our neighbours who likes us (me and mates, he doesn't mind us there...) Our parents have spoken to theirs, and they said to our parents that they don't give a sh** about our treeshack. It is between our three yards, mine (counts as me + friends), neighbour (owner), gits who took it over... The only way to end this, as we have thought, is to end it. We want to get it gone quickly, so as not to attract attention while we're there. We have a garage full of airsoft pyrotechnics and fireworks. Our neighbour doesn't mind us there with pyro's either... Our plan: Pop smoke all around perimiter, especially near camera so as to frame them.... fill a cardboard box with fireforks (roman candles and rockets) and fill with cotton wool... Light 1 via fuse leaning out of box. It's a 10 sec fuse, so we can jump from ladder and run... BOOM. Turn up 3 mins later to hopefully see the 'owners' and be like "what the hell did you do??" There are MANY problems with this... 1) tree damage 2)shrapnel 3)police / fire service attention 4)parents 0_o 5)them killing us (not literally...) WE WANT TO KNOW: Is this theasable? should we just saw it in half? How can we get rid of it?? Thanks for anything, and don't call us terrorists :p

Seed Bomb Vending Machine

Seed bombs are little balls of clay, compost, and seeds that you can toss into a vacant lot to try and get some new plants to grow. It's a guerrilla gardening technique and you can see how to make one here. If you just want to pick one up and live in San Francisco you can now buy them from a vending machine. These were designed by Common Studio from LA and repurpose old gumball machines with the benefits going to Project H Design. First Seedbomb Vending Machine Lands in San Francisco!

Video bombing. Stop...it...now...

Unless i constrain myself this will sound like one of Gordon Ramsays shows... ;-) Fu blo he. It's fung time to do something about those bloo videos that stu people are carpet bombing Instructables with. ! Please limit the possibility of posting an unlimited amount of instructables/slideshows/videos per 24 hour period. One (1) per 24 hours are quite enough for anyone that are actually doing something good and not just carpet bombing/spamming crappy videos from Metacafe to get some money. As a temporary solution maybe just banning Metacafe-videos would help remove those obnoxious spammers. Or can you also get payed by videos on Youtube/Google? Talking in friendly manner to these guys doesn't really help. It only fixes (possibly) the problem with one guy, but there will just come more and more of them all the time.

plastic bottle hydrogen bomb ?

Alright what the image depicts is a plastic bottle with two holes in its cap for two wires. The holes are then caulked hot glued etc. to be waterproof. Then you open up the bottle and fill up with water almost to top [farther than in picture]. Then you hook up wires to a battery. What will happen when you do this?A no more room for hydrogen bubbles bottle expands blows upB hydrogen bubbles find a way out C utter failureI have been thinking this over if anyone out there is good at science outhere please help. Also if this does work it would be an awesome time bomb. PS i couldn't figure out how to add notes i use firefox please help.

Star (stasterisk) arrested at Logan airport for bomb scare

A 19 year old female M.I.T. student was arrested at gunpoint after entering Boston's Logan International Airport with what authorities claim was "a fake bomb" strapped to her chest, according to wire reports. The device is said to have been some kind of computer circuit board with Play-Doh and wires attached, strapped over her black hoodie. Link to AP report on her arrest.The young woman is identified as Star Simpson, shown in the image above left, and she is a sophomore from Hawaii. She has a user account on Instructables. Boingboing story Star's Instructables pageUPDATE: CNN videoUPDATE 2: Pic addedUPDATE 3: Canida's response added to BoingBoing, and a call for geek-protection sticker designs!UPDATE 4: Simpson pleaded not guilty to a charge of possessing a hoax device at her arraignment in East Boston District Court Friday afternoon. She was released on $750 bail and ordered to stay away from Logan Airport.Simpson could face up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine. WBZTV storyUPDATE 5: We had a quick chat with Star!

Sparklers and the meaning of life

I have been playing with sparklers for ages now the latest experiment was to do several layers of aluminum foil and duct tape around two packets of sparklers and putting some arrow fletchs on them... the last one we tried went across three paddocks and nearly took out a shetland pony :-( we measured it the next day and it came up to 150 metres. However i have allways been looking for explosions... sidetracking slightly here but i actually got an explosion my bro welded up a pyramid the size of a soccer ball i filled it with sparkler dust dad wasnt very happy about the huge hole it left in our roof when it exploded and sent 6ml plate in the air for over 10 seconds that was the dummest thing ive done so im looking to down scale slightly with less shrapnel. So in conclusion Im after a recipe using roughly $30 worth of sparklers to explode keeping in mind that i live in Aus so some matierals are harder to come by. thanks everybody any feedback is supported so keep the comments flowing :-)
