    What does he mean by 1:1:1

    Lets list a few safety issues with this 'ible:

    1. metal casing, there is a chance of it exploding and throwing deadly shrapnel at you and also when it ignites its gonna heat up quickly

    2. using potassium permanganate, its generally considered a sensitive oxidizer and mixtures containing it can ignite spontaneously, making it dangerous to store when mixed

    3. No fuse or delay, Im pretty sure anyone with a brain stem can figure this one out

    Also learn to use spell check
