Eve of Destruction



For this computer demolition, I took a Macintosh Powerbook 165c Circa 1997, removed the battery, flattened out a 1.75 inch diameter aerial fireworks shell, stuffed it into the battery compartment. Then filled the cavity with 500 Black Cat firecrackers and poured in half a pound of non-dairy creamer for grins and giggles and taped it all up with the fuse hanging out. I lit it and ran backwards trying to keep my digital camera going in video mode. I achieved a distance of about 25 feet before a series of explosions covered the whole barnyard in a cloud of smoke.







These are low res still frames from the video. Your browser should allow you to magnify them to full size.

What a nice way to relieve stress.

Peace,

Wander

I hereby crown you King of Metele. When my computer dies, it goes to you for a funeral.

We are planning bigger and better explosions. Distance from the target is a big factor. Crap went flying everywhere when that puppy exploded.

Thanks, I think I'm going to tie a modem onto some rockets next and rain debris down on the farm. Plus I've got a server I need to creatively destroy.

I know some Mac users who would be very, very mad at you for doing that, hehe. Nice job.
