To prime or not to prime?

I made a rocket today. Similar to an estes style. Just a small core. I also added some loose chrissy 6 star mix meshed through 40, at the end of the case. I decided to use a stick that was only 5 times as long. Instead of putting it at the top of the case, I stuck it half way down.
So I put it in the launch tube, ignite, whoosh, it goes up maybe 6 feet then somehow switches to a 90 degree angle and flys off over my backdoor and across the roof of a neigbours house. It was almost scary. Anyway I wont be using a short stick again.

With all due respect, I'd have to agree with Adam adn even expound, the words in your post, "It was Only A ___ Rocket", Well, it did fly, which meant it burnt, it also flew over your house and luckily for you not into it.
In the Club I belong to we have what they call "Shadetree Pyro's", I guess coined from the term "Shadetree Mechanics", Well, no offense meant to you personally but these so called shade tree Mechanics have certainly given the "good Neighbor" policy a black eye, I think A 4 CM rock or any other devise capable of leaving earths natural gravity should be tested with due respect for it's possible consequence. I guess what I am trying to day is, Don't become a shadetree Pyro.
I have followed the package directs on a 12 pack of jumping jacks before and set 6 small grass fires in less than 15 seconds, yes I was younger and did'nt take into account it had not rained in a week, but hey, They were only 3X16mm Jumpingjacks.........
