"For Gawd's sake, put a RELAY in there or you could burn the whole damn Jeep to the ground" ...this quote brought to you by people who do not understand the law.....Kirchoff's, Ohm's, or Faraday's.
Violation of KISS shall always ring false in TRUE engineering. - ME___
Had 75CJ5, 89YJ, 93YJ. Have 82CJ7 & 95YJ____Not one burnt yet due to lack of relays.
How does an M-1000 compare to the M-80s that were popular, and could be sold legally in the US, when I was a kid? Also, I wouldn't call this thing a firecracker like they did in the article.
An M-80 has 2.5 grms of powder and an M-1000 has 50+ grms. I remember the M-80s too and they had a sticker that said not to hold them in your hand.
It's surprising this guy didn't loose his arm and his face in the process.
"A man has got to know his limitations."
We messed with M-80's and Cherry Bombs a few times when we were kids. You can get seriously injured even if you think you're a safe distance after lighting an M-80. The M-80's I've seen are made out of a thick paper substrate wrapped into a tight barrel shape... the ends made from a hardend material to seal the load.
Well, once we lit one on the ground as the end was pointed toward our group of friends.. as it went off all of a sudden a neighbor girl held her forehead above her eye.
Damn thing blew that hardened material 50 feet and hit her putting a huge gash in her forehead - she was lucky it didn't hit her eye, because she would have lost that for good.
Cherry Bomb the same... made out of hardend material that will take an eye out even from a safe distance.
