This is what happens when your ignition system weakens your rocket body and it cannot contain the burning fuel. What you can’t see in this picture is the burning piece of rocket that ended up in my mouth. Eye protection recommended. Mouth guard optional.

I was going to say that looks like a metal splif and I was wondering what those guys at SAS have gotten you into. Friends don’t let friends smoke fireworks.

I’ll have to take your word on the resemblance… :-)

We had too much wind and it was blowing out the flame of a butane “stick” so I pulled out the propane torch. That flame was clearly too hot as we had several blowouts as visible in this picture.

people usually don’t roll a joint out of aluminum foil; but I understand you’re new to this.

and probably they don’t fill them with match heads and apply propane torches to them, either?

Cristian Gafton July 05, 2013 11:14

Hey, I don’t judge; in some state that stuff might be legal as well…

That is the problem with states that don’t have medical or legalized pot. Middle aged guys try to roll their own out of matchheads and aluminium foil.
