Sure, the text /says/ that nobody was hurt, but they don't show us the ensuing footage.

I was cringing for a minute and a half the instant I saw what their cannon was made of. 5 stars!

PVC and cinder blocks? I could break either with a good kick and they expected them to contain an explosion from that much gunpowder?!

I was hoping for a 'dude you ok?', but this is still great.

It needs a "Ho' mah beer 'n' watch this!" tag.

The title, description, and submitted username combined make this a 5 star video before play was ever pressed.

And thus the American insurgency ended before it started.

I voted this up because I've seen people do this before and it worked almost exactly like this. These people, though, were a little further away from the house.

Most people wouldn't have to build and (attempt to) operate a homemade cannon in order to know that doing so is not a good idea. These guys just ahead of the curve.

I'm glad they chose to share the educational lesson. I'm glad they're still around to share the educational lesson.

On the other hand if they blew a limb off they might have brought attention to the stupidity of doing this and saved some worthwhile lives from being ruined.

Oh, c'mon. That's not a cannon! It's a mortar, at best.

The fact that they KEPT TRYING is what makes it so special.
memedumpster - 2010-02-28
It's like the universe kept saying "no" and then got tired of them and said "fuck it."

I'm telling' ya, those were STANDARD charges for twenty-five-pound mortars!

"But they were cannons..."

Well what were they set up like mortars for then?!

"Hey, did any of you just hear something?"

Syd Midnight - 2010-02-28
It straddles the already too-fine line between "mortar" and "bomb"

3/4 lbs.!!! :D

"Why am I the dumbass doing this?"

Listen, no, hush, listen. When you ask that question out loud, that's your brain telling you that you should not be doing the thing you're doing.

I'm confused. 3/4 pounds of gunpowder? Where? Not in that soda bottle. In that pipe?! And they tried to light it by dropping a soda bottle in there with a little fuse on the end of it?!

Jesus christ.

Where did these idiots even GET almost a pound of gunpowder?
dododge - 2010-03-07
You can buy cans of black powder for a variety of purposes. The first online seller I found in google has a _minimum_ order of 5 pounds.

My thought exactly. I wonder how many matchheads he collected before he gave up and worked to procure gunpowder.
