The shockwave off the explosion. This was really something!

F*ck me that was a bloody big bang. Very interesting viewing. The shock waves were awsome. I can't believe the entire back wall decintergrated, and those parts of the wall that were moved must have weighed well in excess of 50 tons.

I liked the wooden balls in the mill, I too wonder how long it takes to mill? It must take ages!

Did someone say they heard you need 500kg to detonate bp, well there was a metric ton, contained in barrels. Did any one notice when they tested a single barrel? that detonated!

I don't think it did. It certainly did not look like a detonation to me.

Nope that barrel did not detonate...Also i reckon that barrel was not full i think about 1/2 full...If you look on the computer screen it said 12kg of powder?..If you watch carefully you can see the lid blown off first then a bigger explosion.. but no way did it detonate..Er.. well that's what i reckon.. :)

I got it taped, and I'm thinking about transferring it to PC digitally, then hosting it. I will if enough people are interested. All those who want it, say 'I'.

"Aye"

And so this post isn't completely useless, did anyone else notice the smoke ring that pops out from the end of the building in one of the the slow-motion sequences?

Also, I'm a little confused about Rich saying that Guy would've used a 15 minute fuse - would he really have used 15mins worth of blackmatch, or am I missing something?
