When I was a kid, we put about everything on the train tracks. Coins, toys, toothpaste tubes, firecrackers.... maybe an M-80... but I don’t recall. I’ll plead the fifth there.
M80 duct taped to a can of Ether Starter Fluid. The perfect fire ball. Many moons ago.
"WE" filled balloons with natural gas.. tied parafined thread to them... and lit "the fuse"... for entertainment..
