That reminds me...

282. No matter how many bottle rockets you tape to a balsa wood or styrofoam plane, it does not turn it into a jet.

283. The huge styrofoam gliders make a huge mess when they are exploded by the attempted jet power rockets "report" at the end. It looks REALLY cool though.

284. You never want lose at the game of "who can hold the lit firecracker the longest".

285. Never throw an aerosol can in a fire...the warnings are there for a reason.

286. Never hook an air hose to a propane tank and play flame thrower.

287. A homemade "flame thrower" will inadvertantly melt the siding on a house in just a couple seconds.

288. Nothing good can come from a home made flame thrower.

(Honestly I am not a pyro)

Funny thing....all of these were preferenced with...Hey watch this!

Okay one last for today...the story has to be explained.

My dad worked as a haz-mat trainer in the fire department, so he had lots of books on chemicals. A couple notes for kids, the other for parents.

For Kids

289. Do not attempt to use household chemicals to create what you think will be a small chemical reaction.

290. Small chemical reactions can easily blow the garage door off the hinges without even trying. (indefinite grounding number 2)

291. A flying garage door can do serious damage to the front of your dad's car.

292. Rule 289 can lead to a lack of facial hair.

For parents....NEVER LEAVE A HAZMAT MANUAL IN REACH OF YOUR TEENAGE CHILD.

Off topic...

293. Never scratch yourself in private areas after a day in the woods.

294. You think poison Ivy itches on your hands???? Think again.

295. I am not so sure insurance covers the damage inflicted to your dads car in light of #290.

296. Muratic acid (undiluted) is not good cleaner for anything other than the pool, with the exception of cement.

297. Parents get really mad when you use muratic acid to etch your name in 5 foot letters on the driveway. (20 years later...you can still see it!)

298. Never play "I wonder if acid will dissolve (insert item)", trust me it will.

My childhood was a blast (No pun intended)...well except for ya know.

And for some reason all my friends were really jumpy!!

They never hesitated to take 20 steps back, or flat out run when I said "Hey watch this!!"

This isn't childhood but I thought I'd add on. My friend is a gas fitter and he did the same with an open pipe playing flame thrower, well his helper started running away across a field and when he looked behind him there was another guy running with him. He said to him "why are you running" and the guy said "Hey, I saw the gas guy running so thought I'd better run too". \:\)

299. The gunpowder that your best friend's dad uses to reload shotgun shells makes a really powerful pipe bomb.

300. When you are 14, it is not wise to let your best friend's 8 year old brother watch you make pipe bombs.

301. Pipe bombs in the hands of an 8 year old will remove some fingers of said 8 year old's hand.

302. Not having to admit to building the bomb that took off the fingers is a good thing.

303. Finding the key to the new lock on the door to the half of the basement that has the reloading equipment is not all that hard.

315. Parents are not very creative in hiding things...be it keys or HazMat manuals. Its either in their closet, under the bed or in the nightstand.

316. Those things in crinkly wrappers in the night stand are NOT balloons.

317. Dad's toy gun is probably not a toy.

318. A 357 can blow a hole through the bedroom wall and scare the living s&*t out of a 7 year old.

Back to boats for a moment:


306. It's only a minor detail that the rowboat you and your friends found was already sunk in the shallows of the lake - for months.

307. Four enthusiastic boys can paddle a soggy boat with almost anything.

308. Boats that have sunk once are likely to do so again - slowly.

307. Four boys are not enough to bail out a sinking rowboat. This truth will only become evident when it is too late to get back to shore.

309. It's pretty cool knowing you're all going down with the bombarded pirate ship together, fully clothed.

310. Boys on a sinking pirate ship feel very brave and argue over who will be the last to jump.

311. Pirate ships always sink within plain view of somebody's mother.

312. God has a sense of humor and will make sure this mother is the most hysterical one.

313. It's really hard to stop giggling when you just escaped from the sinking pirate ship and are standing in front of the Hysterical Mom dripping wet.

314. Any punishment is worth it when you know you're going to be the coolest guys in school on Monday.
