    A cherry bomb with underwater fuse, could flush nicely down the toilet.

    My senior year in high school (1973), two of my friends did just this before school started in the boys bathroom. Blew the toilet and both urinals off the wall. Frank and Billy walked out of the restroom and just walked straight to the principals office. I think they got suspended for a week. Could you imagine what would happen now days?

    At one time you could buy a kit to connect to your septic tank to have a gas light in the yard. Kind of like an eternal flame.
    Organized people are people that are just too lazy to look for their stuff

    I didn't mean to laugh (much) but when I read what one of the interviewed persons said I had to.
    He said "it blew my mother off her stool". I laughed wondering what "stool" meant in that context!
    If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time!

    My dad was vague on the details, but apparently he and a couple of friends were responsible for blowing up the chem lab in high school (c. 1945). They mounted some sort of entertainment in order to pay for the costs. Too late to ask for additional information now.
