    I once made a p i p e b o m b in the 90s using cordite from s h o t g u n cartridges, this before it became non PC to do such things! haha

    Difference is we lit it in safe surroundings on private land where no one else could be subjected to it, boy, I wont forget that experience. The things you do when you're young and ignorant of risks.

    However, using fireworks in the manner above to distress and/or injure people is something else. I despair of these people, truly a waste of air.

    I fear for humanity, frankly. I don't think there has been a time where people had less respect for their fellow man/woman.

    Erm, actually when kids me and some mates did worse than this but I cannot divulge the details! No-one got hurt or property damaged etc but it was well dodgy. This was the 70s in my defence but still.
    All the gear and no idea.

    I have the remnants of said implement, but probs best not to post a pic up!

    I to tend to agree with PRS, state of the gun/knife crime in London. The fact we're not safe on the roads because we ride bicycles. The way homeless people are regularly treated all through the year. Increased amount of road rage etc.

    Not the greatest time to be around.

    The knife thing is based on the fact that the Police can no longer stop you and search you as we did before, to find the things you should not have on you.

    You can thank the fooking Liberal do gooders for that and the other issues the Police now have with rising crime levels.

    To fight bad guys, you cant be a bloody

    Look at the places where these these kids are stabbing each other....they are all shit hole parts of London ...every area's got places where you shouldn't go...
    im in london( just)...we don't get gangs round here....but then the kids of today don't like going out side...when I suggest going riding/ outside with my son, I get a look of 'why am I being punished'.

    my misses is always banging on about ...it's not safe here...let's move...but to where??......I quite like the Cayman Islands
