DISCLAIMER: don't try this at home kiddies! Its not motorcycling, but I remember doing the same thing about a decade ago, when I was young and stupid. (as opposed to the older, but still stupid, that I am now.) http://www.unoriginal.co.uk/footage75_4.html 2lt PET bottles such as coke and sprite bottles give you a fair amount of time to get away. This must have been his first one. There is now way that ANYONE would hold onto one and provoke it to blow, if they had seen one go before. They make a noise as loud as a shotgun when they go off. (They blow the lid off a half full wheely bin quite nicely). We used to do what we called 'nades', with 600ml coke bottles and some crushed dry ice, quarter fill with water, lid on, shake twice, lob and duck. BOOM. DO NOT use Evian bottles for this. A different type of plastic, or thinner, apparently. I got to shake one, then it exploded in my hand. I was holding it around the middle and the force of the explosion peeled it open so fast that the plastice wrapped backwards around the tips of my fingers and even cracked one of my nails down near the kwik through which it bled. My hand felt like it looks on cartoons, when it inflates then pulses. Haven't tried one of those again since. I bet this kid hasn't either. lol BTW did you notice it actually blows his glove off?
