    one evening after work, i saw a group of innocent looking kids at the void deck shelter playing with sparklers. they were bending it here and there but not sure what they were doing. i was in my room on the 8th floor and next moment heard a loud 'BOOM' sounds and smoke raising.... like thunderflash. next, i saw that bunch of kids running away. went down to check and saw the tiles scoured with black marks.
    so, from the above report. Now i know what they did.
    sooo dangerous!

    When you mix large amount of the gunpowder?? from the sparklers, it's definitely dangerous...

    Look on the bright side, if Singapore ever gets invaded, we won't have a problem defending ourselves through IEDs.

    Nowadays every little thing u can't do....majority of sg's children of today very sheltered and pampered. They grow up to be people who expect stuff served to them, complain at the slightest inconvienience. Sigh...

    Need to tough up my own kids in future....kekeke

    Sad... when I was young, we were already playing with such things. Combining all the gunpowder from those party poppers and making little "bombs". Purpose to terrorize? To intimitade? No... just some kids having fun seeing the device make a pop sound......

    But what to do... now post 9/11 everything also paraniod.... everything also cannot.

    Nothing to be proud of.. just that when I'm young I don't see the dangers involved.. now.. thinking back.. it's still kinda fun..

    when I was small, I liked to collect used cigarette box from dustbin and remove the silver or gold paper in the box. Cut the paper into small pieces and roll up with 2 matchsticks head to head at the center. Mount one end to a support. Light up another matchstick and burn the paper. The outer matchstick will shoot out like a missile.

    Kids have always been kids, it's just that the environment changed after 911, everyone is more jittery nowadays.
