    Not Funny. Has scary elements of truth in it.
  3. I dunno hooooow many times i've seen this and has been posted... but yeah, its true...
  4. I know this is meant as a humorous post, but the scary thing is that it is now becoming a reality.

    I fear for our children's children.
  5. Yep. A mate of mine read this and said, "I was born in 1977 and my kid was born in 2007. Can you imagine the version of this that she might be reading in 2037!"

    Gave me a bit of a shiver, that comment.

  6. what the hell is a model plane paint bottle you old bastards? :p
  7. See! Kids today. And if I smack him upside the ear for his cheek, I'LL be the one in trouble.

  8. Jeez kids today, they make a very nice small bomb about 2cm high! or so I have heard. :wink:


    The only thing tht could make this list complete is a mention of bolt bombs.
  9. hah! I remember making one of those.

    *throw it at the ground*


    "Well, that doesn't work. What a stupid idea."

    *throw it at the ground*


    "Yep, definitely a dud."

    *throw it at the ground*


    "This is pretty much the best thing ever."
  10. KTULU you forgot a quick duck when the bolts blew apart :shock: :shock:
  11. Nope, I learnt about that after the explosion... :eek:
  12. Bugger, didn't have them in my childhood.

    Any chance you could linky instructions so I can include them in my adulthood?
  13. Rambler, use you imagination. A couple of bolts, a nut and match heads. Please note I do not condone this behaviour they are fcuking dangerous! :shock: :LOL:
  14. So true.

    They teach pilosophies that save the trees but kill the children.

    Where did the control freaks go wrong. It all seemed clear cut.
  15. 2007, people ride motocycles
    3007, motorcycles ride people
  16. Well, the last one I saw go off went through Hinkleys Fruit & Vegie shop front window.
    We were waiting for the school bus. Funny, when bus arrived there were no kids waiting for it there. :p :p

    Only better bang was the cracker up the bike pump and a marble in the pipe.
    (Pumps were made of steel in those days)
  17. It's what we used to sniff when the teacher confiscated all the Liquid Paper.
