Hi guys, I bought some black powder from wal-mart with one of my friends tonight with the intentions of blowing up his old TV. don't worry, it was a broken big screen without all that glass. But thats not important.

We couldn't get the black powder to explode. As a pile it just burned, which makes sense because explosions are just pressure right?

Sooo, how do you take black powder, from firey orange lights, to what they use to throw cannonballs? Pack it in a PVC pipe with a wick?

I've googled but all I could find is making it and I already have it.


Dear cautious people:

I understand this is dangerous, we also will be taking all the reasonable safety precautions. In the least asshole way possible, don't spam this up with "blow urslef up lulz" and the like.

Thanks

In a completely asshole way, did you ever notice the only time that happens is when someone asks a stupid question?

Yeah, so what you need to do is put it in something to make the pressure. The PVC sounds like a good idea. You better get this on video, btw. I'm demanding it! Have fun, and be careful

oh come on, thats not a stupid question. People have been using black powder for 400 years and touching it isn't automatic death. I'm looking for the best way to do this so thanks for being an asshole, that is wrong. And thanks for jumping to conclusions, I'll ask my mom if I want someone to give me a generic and uninformed "don't do it" speech.

this sounds like a fantastic idea. it could use a little bit more extremely explosive danger though. that way it also eliminates the mess that used to be your hands. that way YOU don't have to pick it up (irony?)

lol @ username stuff.

But really, no reason to report this, as far as I know this isn't against the rules, though if it is, delete it right away. I'm just trying to figure this out. But, more googling lead me to my answer so I guess it doesn't matter now.

I think the more important question is, WHERE THE **** CAN YOU BUY BLACK POWDER AT WAL-MART!?!?!?
