poor guy, just sounds funny

That's why you always thoroughly test things by making a single prototype...

I find this a little hard to believe for a couple of reasons

1) To buy any rocket big enough to even move you, you HAVE to be liscened to do so

2) You just cant go out and buy explosives.... you have to be liscened for that as well.... plus doing ignorant shit like this is pretty much a revoking offence and you'll loose your liscense permanetly.

You just simply cant go out and randomly buy the stuff to do this.

Did you bother to read the article???

It says he used an auto muffler filled with gasoline and gunpowder.

Last time I cheched you could buy gas at anty age at aboutl 1/4 of the street corners across America.

Black powder can be bought by anyone over the age of 18 at just about any sporting goods, gun, and K-mart in this country. WITH OUT a licsense!

Explosives and alcoholic beverage comsumption are never a good idea.
