works “bomb”

— Posted by brooks87 on 8:03 pm on Feb. 21, 2002

ok to make this “bomb” take a soda plastic bottle(24 oz or 2 liter works good cap has to have a good seal),aluminum foil,works toilet bowl cleaner. Step 1 roll up peices of  aluminum foil into little balls. (slightly smaller than a dime) put them into bottle. (you need a lot of the little balls) about a inch up inside the bottle. Step 2 put in some “WORKS” Step 3 put on cap now set it somewhere and wait about a minute (on warm days)
you see inside that it starts to make a gas inside the bottle then the bottle expands like a balloon and pops (a pretty large sound)

NOTE:try different amounts of works and foil you dont need a lot though. some times it isn’t really loud. This is a good but, harmless scare toy

I thought you had to use drain-o?  (yeah, I know that wasn’t a question)  Toilet bowl cleaner I wouldn’t think would be potent enough to eat away the tin foil and expand like draino does.

Yes “works” works great. trust me this is a load of phun

Anything with an alkaline hydroxide will work.  But it’s not “harmless”… take it from someone who suffered chemical burns to the skin and eyes in their youth.

Caustic soda should work too, I can buy the powder form for real cheap from hardware stores.

yes it it not totally harmless the acid is pretty strong the acid forms inside the bottle.  When the bottle blows up  the acid eats away on  the bottle (and kills grass i know!) if you get it on you and leave it there! it will hurt (don’t be stupid it can eat your skin right off) but i takes a little while.
Just  the cleaner it self is preety strong!

P.S sry for the mishap

I was under the impression that the reaction produced hydrogen gas,this in a confiended space will result in a Physical explosion.There is no acid in the reaction, it’s sodium hydroxide(alkali) and water/AL.

drain-o is just a brand that cleans out drains{der}so toilet cleaner would be nilly the same right??

— Posted by brooks87 on 7:30 pm on Feb. 24, 2002

yeah it would probley do the same job (they both clean the sh*t out of the pipes dont they ?) 🙂

P.S tell me if used this “bomb” and if it worked good i just want to know if it turned ur crank.

I’m guessing most of u people live in america. I live in england and there is no “drain-o” or “works toilet bowl cleaner” do u no what else i could use.

— Posted by largeidaccam on 5:17 am on Mar. 3, 2002

just look for a product that does the same thing ie read the bottle , also i live in Australia

I learned this trick from a friend but I don’t know where he found it at but it works really good. Fun for hours I tell you.

Another “bomb” to make is mixing equal parts powdered chlorine(like for swimming pools) and milk in a plastic bottle.
Shake it up and run cause you don’t want that shit in your eyes!

this is totally irrelevant… i was in italy for spring break last week and i see a paper towel product called Foxy Asso… no lie, it was the funniest thing that i have ever seen

this should’ve been posted in the explosives forum.
i like it when things go bang.

try liquid plumber ( might have been drano ) and tin foil, the gas in the balloon is hydrogen gas, when lit it explodes i believe, ( never tryed yet so. . . ) if its true the explosionis like a mini-hindenburg.

if you take a 20oz. bottle and fill it half way with hyroclorate acid and put three pieces of alluminum foil that are about 4 inches long and 1 4th of and in wide it will blow up hella fucking loud

— Posted by The Anarchist on 11:25 pm on April 7, 2002

u can get hydroclorate acid from pool stores.It is used to lower ph levels in pools.Make sure that you dont spill it on carpet.it will eat right through it like a warm knoife through butter.I did this twice today.It is hella loud.Stand across the street from a store  adn make it.it takes about 30-45 seconds to blow up so u have time to throw it to the store.try to make in it the front door.it is even more fun when you do it to a hindu store.

you stupid shits. it doesnt matter whether you use draino or the works or anything else
the shit you use needs to have a semihigh acidity content. THE works brand toilet bowl cleanetr has quite a good bit of  HYDROCHLORIC acid in it (its not hydrochlorate you lame ass mother fucker) stop talkin about pressure bottle bombs anyways. they are all lame except for the sparkler in aglass bottleone.and the only reason ilike it is because if you get the right bottle it will shatter and throw glass shrapnel everywhere. i like to put those in mailboxes. but anyways. stop talkin about lame shit. this is the explosives forum. not the newbie kewls bomb making section. talk about real shit. real EXPLOSIVES. hmtd. rdx. double salts. pictric acid. hmx. anfo. anal. annm. carbon tet. red or white powder propellants. double based powders. black powder. helloffite.  methyl nitrate dynamite. urea nitrate. copper sulfate. tacc. ddnp. lead pictrate. mercury fulminate. get what im sayin? talk about fuckin explosives, not chicken sissy bitch shit. damn.

Beautiful =)

I told you, they already talk about enough “anal” here… don’t encourage it.

— Posted by THErAPIST on 11:51 pm on April 7, 2002

lol. well fine then. dont talk about anal… talk about Ammonium Nitrate / Aluminum. yea, there we go. talk about that.

— Posted by phred on 11:29 am on April 8, 2002

i completely agree! THErAPIST… none of this pipe bomb shit… no lame ass bangs… i want proper explosives… where proper knowlege is required…
i wish i could get nitric acid here in england! 🙁 and then i could put my knowlege to work…

— Posted by cort on 5:37 pm on April 8, 2002
