Gender reveal explosion starts wildfire

Post by bob vernon »

Who could possibly have known that an explosive device, set off in a forest, could start a forest fire? Really, the fine should have been a lot higher than $600. But it's Alberta.

I'm assuming they were using tannerite or another binary explosive.
It's not going to start a fire if the area is clear of dry debris and it's elevated like on a tree stump or something like that.
Mix er up, grab a rifle with a velocity of 2000 fps plus, and shoot it...ka boom. Just make sure everyone is back 50m per pound of explosive, and has their ears covered.
Some may view my politically incorrect opinions as harsh and may be offended by them. Some think political correctness will be our undoing.
