Idiots!

It never ceases to amaze me how retarded people can be. Take a look at this...
<a href="http://www.9news.com/acm_news.aspx?OSGNAME=KUSA&IKOBJECTID=418f3063-0abe-421a-004f-cf808afd026e&TEMPLATEID=0c76dce6-ac1f-02d8-0047-c589c01ca7bf">Huge Link</a>

This should change your mind about using acetylene in your cannons!

This is retarded... every time a gas that is not a standard propelent damages something, people are like "OMG! Look what it did! It'll blow your cannon to HADES!"

...quite simply, cars arn't pressure containers. They have large, <b>flat</b> and relitivly weak windows, pathetic <b>flat</b> sheet-metal roofs... they just arn't built to withstand pressure, because it's not required of them.

I wish I had welding classes in my school. I guess that's the fault of a conservative Catholic education, you know, all brains, no getting your hands dirty.

But that is insane to see what it did to the car. DANG!

you don't have to be an idiot just for something bad to happen... we've all made mistakes that, if just one thing went differently, we would be dead. For example, spud gunning, if you had a hybrid and there was the tiniest crack and you didn't notice it for some reason, it would slowly expand and after a few shots, the whoule gun would explode. So don't assume that people who are unfortunate are naturaly idiots. oh and dragon, this ussualy is around the lines of what happens with explosives, crap blows up, that is exactly what they are designed to do.
