Daisy cutters only explode once, they don't release a cloud of inflammable ammonium nitrate, aluminium dust and polystyrene slurry. BTW that mix is flammable.

Point of grammar: "flammable" is a neologism for the word "inflammable". Both carry the same meaning. "Flammable" was coined by safety authorities because some people were confused by the "in-" prefix, erroneously thinking it means "not".
