I was watching Brainiac on G4 when I decided I wanted a can of Peter Logan's Exploding Paste. So, it took me some digging around, and I managed to find it here, (http://gprime.net/board/archive/index.php/t-3724.html) however if you don't wanna click there here is the recipe:

First of all, you need only two ingredients: Iodine crystals and Ammonium Hydroxide.
You can get the iodine at drug stores and pharmacies (you may have to sign for it). Even if you can get pure ammonium hydroxide, you probably don't want it - it's purity affects the strength of the explosive, and you don't want the result to be blowing the wall of your house off.
Very strong household ammonia water will do OK, but it must be clear - if it's cloudy, it won't work.

OK, now we're on to the making.
1. It's a good idea to crush up the iodine crystals - this will make them react faster.
2. Put two tablespoons of the crystals into a glass or pyrex container that will hold at least 500ml..
3. Now add about 100ml of the ammonium hydroxide. You should always add a little more than you need here - if you add too much, it won't affect the outcome, but if you add too little, it will be incomplete.
4. You want to stir the mixture for about ten minutes. If all goes to plan, you should see some bubbles of Hydrogen being given off. When these bubbles stop, the reaction is over.
5. Leave your mixture for about 5 minutes to make sure everything's completely done, and you should see some stuff at the bottom of your container. This is your paste, which can be separated by pouring the whole lot through filter paper. Don't worry about damaging your funnel - the liquid you're getting rid of is just water now.
6. The paste should dry after about an hour, so if you want to keep it, store it with a little water (to keep it damp) in an airtight tin.
7. Remember, if you store it too long, it will decompose!

Remember: The explosions aren't very big, so don't try to kill anyone, but put it on a toilet handle or a computer mouse and scare your friends or make them think you have psychic powers!

If you really wanna scare your friends you could take a beloved pet and nail it to the ceiling in their room.

Do you know how hard it is to get blood out of any type of fabric? It's almost impossible.

Well... I can't edit it into anything not involving explosions really... maybe Peter Logan's Exploding CUDDLING paste, but then people would try it and sue me for misleading information.

Besides... they're small explosions. Mostly just used to mess with people, not hurt them.

It's great on April Fool's day. :brow:
