    Quote:Captain Kirk did it on an episode of StarTrek. [​IMG] Okay, I am a geek.

    The web would probably help you make the real stuff. ALthough I am guessing that would be really, really dangerous.

    Hubby said that it is very dangerous to light one in the house. We do have gunpowder in our house but all of them are in metal containers.

    Did you notice the light after the explosion came on? It must be fake as one of my friends said it.

    Anyway, Mythbusters can do it better!

    DH tells stories about making his own back when he was a kid with his buddies. Took them over a year to get the formula balanced enough to actually work. Naughty little boys!
