As the old saying goes, "If you want to make an omelette, you gotta break some eggs." We think people say that… Wait… Maybe it was just Jack Nicholson in Batman. But, as we're sure you know, we as a civilzation, have to go through a lot of trial and error in order to further understand our natural world…

And for a lot of us, that means blowing things to smithereens. Let's face it. This is the fun part science. Everyone one of us, including you, looked forward to that day in science class when we got to mix vineagar and baking soda, or for those pyromaniacs out there, turn on the bunson burners. 

However, unsupervised, science can be extremely dangerous. Just ask Jeff Goldblum in The Fly. It is when science goes wrong that we make the great leap from understanding our natural world to understanding what it's like to open a ketchup bottle with two fingers… But damned if it isn't funny to watch. 

 

Here's a good idea! Let's find out what happens when we shoot a combustible object!

We had the time of our lives at Science Camp… and then we blew ourselves up. 

So happy, so full of life, so full of glass shards.

 

This is why we don't trust people in rainbow jumpsuits.

If the point of this exprience was to make you look like an idiot, kudos!

 

For all the future terrorists in training.

This jackass deserved it. 

 

Who knew sodium could be so fun?

I feel bad for the kid's little sister he no longer has.
