    You really should scratch the striker pad off the box, crush the powder off the stocks, and put it all in an enclosed container to build pressure.

    Its better to scrape off the match heads. Although its lot of work. You get a better reaction. Im looking for vids on solid rockets... matchheads should work as a fuel. But im not finding any videos.

    This show didn't mention that you need the phosphorus off of the striker into the mix.

    Technically this should be flagged for misleading title...they say match bomb and they dont actually show the match bomb.

    FU, discovery.

    Stop complaining about it being a commercial and look up "Project Free TV" on Google. Click "Tv-Shows" on the top and go to M and find "Mythbusters". Taadaa.

    Whaaaat? Did Jamie just say Potassium Chlorate is the fuel? That's completely wrong, it's the oxidizer.

    Wouldn't it have been easier to get the amount of potassium chlorate equivalent to that amount of matchheads, throw some chips of wood in there and light it?
