I remember them well.I also remember when I was at school, we made some stuff that "exploded" when you applied even a small amount of pressure to it. You could put it on the floor so that people walked on it, on door handles (we even nicked some and put it on the toilet seat in the masters' common room [:I] ).It didn't really explode as such, just went off with a loud <<CRACK>>.I think it was potassium tri-nitrate, or something like that. Does anyone know what substance I mean, and could that be what was in devil bangers?
They still sell something like that here on the 4th of JULY!
