This is a question Bad Ideas

"Let's get all the fireworks and pile dog shit on top of them". I can't believe I actually said that, and I still can't believe I was the one who lit them and couldn't run away in time. Tell us about your spectacularly misjudged ideas.

When about 8, me and my old friend Harry made a "firework"
by closing up one end of a bog roll tube, partially filling it with black powder (acquired by gently prising apart a number of his fathers shotgun shells), and for a fuse using a bit of old rope which we (for some reason) soaked with WD40.

It didn't work as intended, mainly because the daft fuse we were using simply would not catch.

Harry did manage to set it off, however, by peering into the tube and poking a lit twig into the open end. He wasn't hurt, but for one brief moment from his head sprouted a magnificent fiery beard-mullet combo, and he was left stunned with a face covered in a cartoonish amount of soot.

And then we got beasted by his dad.
