Response to liberal N proud (Original post)

11. I'm reminded of a sunny Sunday morning long ago

when one of the kids up the road decided to make a canon of sorts.

Turned out to be more of late fifties pipe bomb. He used a section of bicycle frame, a large ball bearing and ingredients I won't mention. He failed to account for the fact that the bore wasn't necessarily smooth nor the sides even parallel. Fortunately he used a long length of jetex fuse and was indoors when it detonated as a result of the ball bearing jamming at the end it shouldve flown from.
