Step 1: Materials:

for this one you will need:

one! two! three! as many as you like 8 shot ring caps
(rolls of caps also work)
a hammer

told you it was easy!

Step 2: What 2 Do

well to be honest a cave man could understand it so if u cant then u lose... badly. so basically slap the cap down on a strong surface that doesnt matter if it gets damaged. then swing your hammer and whack that cap! now heres the health and safety part: YOU SHOULD WEAR GOGGLES AND LONG CLOTHING TO AVOID ANY UNPLEASANT ECOUNTERS WITH A LEAPING SPARK!

well that was easy and the best thing is you can bet your mate you can ma ke a louder noise with a hammer than him and sneak the cap down bfore you whack!!!

    i once saw a video of sledge hammer bombs. more dangerous but more fun!

    lol here i was expecting something a little bit more in depth but what the hell, good idea, but here's my thought: go to a friends house, and tape the cap to the end of his hammer, so the next time he tries to use it, and hits the head on whatever, it blows up and scares the s**t outta him. saavy?
