    We used to pull our bicycle pumps apart. A penny Bunger followed by a marble caused mayhem around Auburn when I was young

    I can remember unraveling packets and packets of Tom Thumbs, Po Ha's, Pennies and Thunders to be ready for cracker night....
    One year I put 'em all in a metal ice-cream container ( who remembers those....:rolleyes:) to keep them dry. On the night of the Great Bunger War, I stupidly put the container on the ground behind me, lit my first penny...reached my arm back, ready to throw and.........yup, you guessed it...the sparks from the burning wick fell into the ice cream container and the whole lot, ( about 5 week's of household chores worth), went up in an almighty shower of explosions and sparks.:eek:
    All that was left of the ice cream container was a molten puddle of metal.
    .......but geez it was an awesome sight !!!:D
    Cheers,
    Mark

    Did similar with thunders and inch water pipe....
    Threaded at one end with a slot to allow the wick to hang down.....Thunder down the guts, a bit of carpet underlay as wadding and then a marble....screw the cap on , light the wick and look out......bloody dangerous !! Our back shed was peppered with holes from these things. It was fibro with a dirt floor and was really only used for storing the mower, so Dad wasn't that fussed at the time.
    It's a wonder we still have all our fingers and eyes !!
    Cheers,

    It was fibro with a dirt floor and was really only used for storing the mower and the petrol for the 3 stroke mower and a couple of cans to chuck into the backyard incinerator, Gotta love a backyard explosion !!

    And the building of the bonfires. Tyre's always seemed to make an appearance on a bonfire. Nothing like the smell of burning rubber !! Yuk

    We used to use some water pipe and a C size battery ;) it was a two kid job we stuck the pipe in the ground one kid would stick the penny banger or thunder in the pipe and lit the fuse then the other would drop in the C battery at the right time ( too early and the fuse would go out and too late fingers got a bit bruised lol )
    When it went off and the battery went up and out of sight we would run about holding our hands over our heads till we herd the thud on the ground. Then it was dig the battery out of the 6" hole in the ground and go again. I really don't know how Im still here to tell the tale lol
