@Vopo we were allowed to mix dangerous chemicals at home and let off fireworks in the back yard and build electric shock machines

it's a wonder any of us survived to adulthood

@natecull @Vopo gunpowder only has 3 ingredients and our 10-11y.o. selves made lots of it (often badly). Also flared up plenty of petrol and disassembled bullets.
All part of growing up! :-)
