Ever see what happens when a 2000 PSI oxygen cylinder falls over and the
neck breaks off???

Subject: [MV] Blowing things Up!

Speaking of blowing things up, many moons ago I worked for a nationwide
muffler shop chain. One of the first things I was taught by the manager
older brother), was how to make an acetylene bomb with a guarantee bag,
oxygen, acetylene and a wire bread tye to close it and act as a fuse.
the salesmen at the Ford dealership across the street liked shooting
into our shop. The manager warned them several times but to no avail. He
it when they shot one right in the open window of the shop M715
(required MV
content). I can tell you from experience that a hedgeapple, launched
from a
3' length of 3" pipe, using the oxyacetylene mixture, can take out a
glass window across a 4 lane highway with a median. Car windshields
aren't a
problem either. Sufficed to say, the knucklehead salesmen no longer
rockets across the street.
The block wall we ventilated is a whole other story!
