I'm not sure I understand,... we open the door for some folks at PC one minute but then slam the door (and possibly severe some fingers in the process) the next. I not sure Just what happened to you in your childhood Frank that would provoke this obvious disdain for plastic but clearly you've got some issues here. :lol:

When I showed my wife this thread and told her my thoughts on how to do this, she went and got our homeowner insurance policy. She read it for a few seconds then said, "nope, can't, we don't have a I'm gonna do something stupid clause". LOL......... Women, they just do not understand the male need for total annihilation......LOL;)

Ron,
Are you proposing to blow'm up with or without the power strips?

I know swat all about Blowmolds, but love to see things blow up. Where are the Videos?

I really wish that you had this idea 2 weeks ago. We just finished up a gunnery where we shot about 100,000 rounds of .50cal and about 21,000 rockets. I still have hope though, we have a Hellfire shoot on Friday and I might call in a few favors. I'll keep you all posted.

OH IT'S ON!!! Where did I put that tactical nuke? ;)

It appears you might have a slight advantage over the rest of us in this contest... but I don't care! BLOW IT UP! :razz:

I have to admit I am a little saddened by this. I am not a blow mold maniac but many of these things are of some historical significance. Not to mention, these are one of the few things still made in the U.S.

Well the shoot is over. Didn't get the chance to set something up. If I had more time it could have been a pretty cool manner of distruction. Any way, there is still nothing like watching a $30,000 missile land on the turret of a tank.

Frank,
I was wondering. If someone was to be the only poster. Would they win the lowest and highest prize?

If I had any blow molds I would attempt to launch one into orbit using my big wheel rocket launch control system I use to race down a mountain.

Ok, So original plan failed. Rocket motor ignitors were bad. Had planned for a big explosion.

But instead, a little gasoline, and here is what happens.

Seeing today was the deadline at about 7pm we had to do something...so i brought up the two snowmen i had and picked the right one out ;) went out to the garage and found the map gas, got the oxygen tank, got the camera and went outside.


Here is some pictures, someone swore in the video but it is on youtube :mad:

We drilled a hole where his nose was and put a bottlerocket in his nose, pluged all the holes and filled it with map gas and pure oxygen. In the beggining of the video you can see the bottle rocket take off and about a second later it gets to the oxygen and KABOOM!

The post pictures show that it exploded right around the seems and melted and folded around the body!!

Sorry the video is so dark.

This is a highly complex contest, and involves the manual computation of several hundred square and cube roots, plus a combination of impact geometry and quantum physics coupled with the predumnambulation and cretisfortification of a two-tone gunderotter. And with racing stripes, no less!

I, of course, have no clue what I just wrote either, but I somehow thought that it might be an appropriate addition to this thread. :rolleyes:

You people are sick, sick, sick! It is not enough that your subliminal mind control has infected me with the blinkitis virus, but now you want to set fire to and explode my child hood. Back in the day, all I had was 3 strings of c9’s and a blowmold Rudolph. Oh, I know some rich folks that had some bubble lights on an aluminum tree, but not me…all we had was 4 pounds of tinsel and that blowmold snowman. Pure evil I tells ya! Go ahead and destroy my fond memories of the good old days, but just remember to picture me with my flocked Christmas tree and my blowmold Santa!

Good to get something free today, Since Sparkfun is a failure.
I was being patient, You had a CRAZY year this year. I still can't belive CNN didn't put the audio on the video.
