what for dangerous experiments did you as kidd?
>>
I made one of those weenie cookers where you plug it directly into 120 v, and that delicious smell would come up and I'd go to pull the weenie off and forget to unplug it and get a pretty good tingle.

Tried to make those crystals 3 times. Couldn't find the ammonia or whatever it is.

Might do this. Does 240v cook it faster?

Can’t imagine what kids today are doing without a resource like TOTSE.
Tried to separate sodium from table salt with lots of heat. Made Aussie beer can mortars, homemade fire works, charging big capacitors from washing machines and probably more dumb stuff. Can’t really call them experiments since I was mostly trying to duplicate results. But one time I put a 9 volt in a glass of water for a week and thought I created an algae based life form. Glad I still have most of my fingers at least.

i used to share a room with a sibling and we separated the bunkbed into two beds for some reason, and my bed was really high off the ground to where i could sit under it. i called it my laboratory because i liked dexters lab. anyway one night my older siblings came back from the bar with test tubes that they took shots from and i asked if i could have them. i ended up raiding my parents bathroom and throwing anything i could into the test tube and mixing it. took it outside and set it on fire. it produced this really black thin smoke that dried on your skin if it touched you. no idea what it was but my friends mom told me not to mix chemicals anymore.

My parents were really great and basically gave me full garage access from an early age.
But the experiment that scarred me the worst was a dry ice+juice jug that exploded in my hands and a potato cannon that I didn't pvc weld the ignition trigger in place before testing. I assumed that the tight fit would hold the trigger in place. But nope, blew it off like those chinese vids of manhole covers being blowing sky high. Second or third cannon I ever built. Right in front of my parents and on of my best friends. 1st degree burns on literally every square millimeter of my right hand. First day I ever called out of work.

I fear pressurized containers now.

I have so fucking many of these, seesh.

Parents taught me from an early age that a magnifier glass could heat things up with the sun. Spent so many summers fucking around with magnifying glasses.

Built a bike trailer with two of my best friends in 5th grade. Didn't know wtf threadlocker was at the time so the trailer would constantly unhook itself from the bike and would just skid for awhile. Someone actually bought the bike trailer at a garage sale which was pretty neat.

Homemade fireworks from an early age. Watching all those hip, 2007 youtube videos about putting powder into ping pong balls and blowing up pumpkins.

There's probably plenty more. Thanks OP for making me think about how fucking rad and supportive my parents were in my childhood.

i used to take mains equipment apart as a kid with zero adult supervision. ive been electrocalmed many, many times.

i taught myself to weld and cast metal when i was about 16 by saving up birthday card money which, retrospectively, is quite dangerous for someone that age to be doing with zero training and zero supervision when it involves acetylene cylinders etc but if you read the instructions it should be fine.

i also very fond of diy chemistry, made litres of benzene, ether (it spontaneously combusts rather easily) etc. i ate quite a few of my experiments. exciting!

Fireworks. Rockets. Nitro Glycerin. Failed to make gun powder and thermite a couple times (etcha sketch dust and rust from hot hands does not make useable thermite FYI). Scowered craigs list for projection TV's and harvested the franelz lenses, melts the zinc out of pennies real good. Stared at the sun behind layers of space blankets. Castrated a cat.

I attempted a handheld Jacob's Ladder with a stripped 120 cord, alligators clips, and graphite rods. It was intended to be a proof-of-concept before I built a proper stand for it but it welded the clips together and I only used them to pop Christmas lights after pulling them apart.
Glow pickle was successfully demonstrated in a more safe manner.
I snuck a bunch of magnesium strips out of the science lab in 7th grade and tried making thermite but the aluminum powder was hard to make in large enough quantities.

carefully mixing a batch of 500g of explosives on my desk

Plenty of weird stuff.
Grandad used to run a TV repair busyness. And my parents would sometimes leave me at his shop while they ran errands.
Grandad didn't give to flying shits about anything. And id usually end up playing around with fly-back transformers setting shit on fire.
That was all fine and dandy as long as he was around. My parents usually figured that when i told them about the stuff he let me do i was bullshitting...
He was very hands off and would often leave me alone in the store when he did house calls...
Long story short i figured out i could chain transformers together for longer arks...
This culminated in me blowing up the shops, and building it was in primary transformer. Leading to a massive power outage. From what i remember the thing arced all over the store to anything and everything.I'm lucky to be alive...

After that my parents wouldn't leave me at the store any more...

Later I developed a fascination with chemistry... Lack off access to chemicals would hinder my research in this field. But not before mixing and boiling a bunch of strong acids in a pot, and having it melt the pot and heater in to a noxious amalgamation...

One more time i tried to build a tesla coil in high school. But my family stopped me in time...

Another time some kid wouldn't let me in his tree-house so i enlisted my brother to help me i build a trebuchet of a drawing in a kids book in order to destroy his house... We mannaged to throw the brick over the tree, over the house behind it and break a windshield of a car parked in the back yard... I don't think a trebuchet was dismantled that fast in history...

I'd like to think that my parents where supportive, but after a handful of incidents it was a full time job keeping me from getting maimed or filled.

>>2361960

I built an air cannon when I was about 13 with a 2 liter bottle, a ball valve, a 1" pvc pipe and a tire valve in the back for charging with compressed air. On one occasion I was firing an old arrow in a sabot straight up at about 60 psi, I had a big "Landing zone" and I was actually quite accurate, So I thought it was reasonably safe. On the last shot I went up to 90 psi and the wind caught the arrow and blew it over to the neighbors where it stuck in the ground about 5 feet from my best friend as he was walking around his backyard.

Somehow none of our parents found out and since that day I never fired an arrow upwards again.

The gun ended up exploding in my face one day when I was charging it to 100 psi and over 15 years later I can still hear the ringing in my ears.

i amassed radioactive materials, once my geiger counter started to click when i brought it near my box my parents told me to move it out of my room, i bargained with them and just made a cask out of 2 buckets and sand to sheild it with. Uranium ore dust is fucking sticky, i made a few objects mildly radioactive by getting that shit on them then i couldent get it off (according to said geiger)

Tried to make a bat symbol out of an old movie theater projector bulb when I was 12. I guess I over amped it and the fucking thing blew up in my face.

Balloons filled with hydrogen gas via electrolysis. They are flammable sky lanterns. I would let them go in the air with a fuse attached and light it. Very dangerous, but the real idiocy was making fuses out of gasoline soaked string. I had a fire extinguisher on standby and it's a good thing because i didn't realize how much excess gas would drip off the string, resulting in the concrete pad below going into a blazing inferno that would have torched the whole yard, shed, house etc

My dad used to take my brother and I to auctions since he collected and repaired antiques as a hobby. Mostly estates sell shit in lots where you buy a box even if you want just one thing from it. Anyway he would give us all the shit in the box he wasn’t using to play with, and one time that included a mason jar full of Mercury. Had so much fun with it until one day my mom found out and took it away.

I built a coil gun out of a bunch of old disposable cameras, and never bothered to cover up the capacitor bank terminals. Also radioshack didnt sell a switch that went up to the voltage i was discharging from the bank to fire the projectile, so i made one out of copper sheets, a piece of old floor trim, and electrical tape. It worked awesome, and i never shocked myself. It could put a nail through cardboard. I was fully aware it would kill me if i touched the wrong parts, zero fucks given.

Mercury actually isnt that bad for you to touch, providing you dont have any open cuts on your hand and you are in a relatively well ventilated area. The real danger is from breathing or ingesting it. Outside of that it is pretty harmless to hold it in your hands.

Actual boomer here. In the mid sixties a traveling dentist came to my elementary school to treat the ultra-poor kids. Some of us non-poverty types made friends with him, and he'd squirt a little ball of mercury into our hands to play with until we inevitably dropped it and it exploded into a million tiny balls.

We used to steal 525 packs of Winchester .22LR ammo. We would tape the bullets to the end of our BB gun. not a accurate set up, but loads of fun.

One day 15 year old me was playing around with a break action single barrel 12 gauge. I noticed a sam's choice water bottle neck was a perfect friction fit around the end of the barrel, and then after that, a tennis ball was a perfect fit *inside* the bottle.

Needless to say, I cut open a bunch of birds hot shells, removed the shot, and put the crimp back together. I was managing to launch the tennis ball a solid 1/4 mile away with standard loadings. After each launch I'd have to take the water bottle off the barrel and de-invert it. I got more and more brave with the thing, until I decided to see how far it could go. I had some powder I was using to reload 38spl and 9mm, so I took the plastic wadding out of the shell and loaded it with powder to the brim, then closed the crimp up. The water bottle immediately shredded itself into a bunch of pieces of shrapnel, hitting my hand and leaving an interesting wound. The tennis ball was launched far. I mean far. I lost sight of it and had to hunt for it in the field for awhile. When I finally found the thing there was a 3/4" hole in one side and the other was completely obliterated & torn. I wish I could find the pictures of the contraption and the aftermath of my hand and the tennis ball. It was a glorious thing to witness.

I was experimenting with water rockets when I was little, but since I was retarded all I did was put a hole in the cap of a two liter and stuck a Schrader valve from an old bike inner tube in. The air pressure was enough to keep it sealed properly, so I gave it a whole shitton of pumps from my bike pump, and then would just smash it against the street until it exploded.

We used to be so dangerous with our Drain-O bombs. It was sort of a game to see if we could hide one next to somebody chilling on a park bench and not have them notice before it exploded. Luckily nobody got seriously injured, although I can’t comment on long term hearing damage.

Always at night, in the late 70s, using Mylar and a crapload of tape I did this:
https://youtu.be/U9DtAUyaKRU?t=135
with utility gas tapped from one of those permanently mounted patio grills, adding lighted cigarettes to delay ignition of fuses stuck through them near the end. I halted these "experiments" after scaling up to around 300 cubic feet and a half mile of altitude, though for obvious reasons one can expect the authorities to intervene earlier these days.

We made a lot of "the works" explosives. Eventually we got tired of the noise, so we started to make depth charges. We'd put the works in Gatorade bottles and fill it with rocks, and aluminum foil. They'd sink and create a great cavity of water.

Mostly finding all the leftover fireworks in the neighborhoods after holidays and seeing what we could blow up. I'm 3rd of 4 boys so by the time I was in elementary they had a pretty reliable system of how much leftover powder we needed stuffed in bottle necks to see some cool shit. Adults were never mad as long as we did it far enough away to not bother their hangovers.

We'd also replace the motor in your lil mini cars with say...uncles old riding mowers motor. Just to see whatd happen. Fast motherfuckers is what happened but fuck did they break quicker and kill the batteries right away.

I had this foam bodyboard when I was younger

I used to get a magnify glass and burn holes it on sunny days.

Anyway, I was laying down In the doorway of the basement, burning holes in the bodyboard as you do, and I accidentally kicked a small table nearby, which had a glass of turps that my dad had some paint brushes in, the turps landed on the bodyboard, the whole thing went up in flames, the curtains on the nearby basement window caught on fire,

I stupidly reached for the nearby hose, water and solvent fire don’t match. The fire spread to the grass near the basement door, burnt about 4 metres sq of grass.

One time we decided to light a porta potty on fire. Took a gatorade bottle full of gasoline and tried to leave a little trail in the dirt to act as a quick fuse. Anyway the dirt absorbed the gas and it wouldn’t light, so I cracked the door open and stuck the lighter near the floor. I guess the door had been closed long enough for gas vapor to build up and it blew open with a ball of flames.

Burnt the shit out of the back of my hand, every finger had blisters on it, lost most of my eyebrows and could feel some of my eyelashes burnt together. I think I was like 14 and tried to hide it from my mom for a couple weeks while it healed.

We bought a microwave one night at Meijer for like $35. Got blank CDs, aluminum foil, marshmallows, eggs, etc. Proceeded to nuke everything until the microwave took 10min to pop a single kernel of popcorn. Boxed it back up with exploded egg and rainbow marshmallows and CD bits inside and returned the thing to the store and told them it doesn’t cook right, got the $35 back and went and ate at Denny’s.

Good times in that short period between turning 16 and becoming a lazy pothead at 18.

I used to play with the electric fence in the pasture by my house. It pulsed 3800 volts every half second, up to 4500 volts when the weed burner kicked in.
A friend was visiting with his girlfriend who knew nothing of what was to come. She was sitting in an aluminum lawn chair in a wet bathing suit. He gently put his hand on her shoulder, a gesture that seemed like affection to her, kek.
I grabbed hold of the electric fence, and then grabbed his other hand.
She was very well grounded and the shock threw us all down.
The lawn chair was destroyed.

I had a joint and nobody had a lighter.
I dug my heel into the ground a bit, grabbed the electric fence, and held it.
There was an arc sparking from an eyelet on my shoe to a blade of grass.
I put the paper at the end of the joint into the arc until the paper glowed.
Puffed on the joint until it was lit.
Surprised everyone.

I used to play with my microwave. A CD would have tracers of green sparks traveling along the aluminum surface. The plastic would catch fire at about ten seconds.
Incandescent bulbs light up in a microwave.
They make a weird green light, and a noise you don't normally hear. The filament will burn up in about 6 seconds. You can do this with blown light bulbs, as long as the filament is attached at one end.
Over time, this damaged my microwave. It started cooking things on the counter near it. A box of sandwich baggies next to the microwave were all fused together. I threw that microwave away because it had become dangerous.

Old car auto ignitions had a condenser that would store a 50KV charge and release it to a spark plug. I would charge them up and leave them laying around the shop. You could hold the body of it or the lead and nothing would happen. If you touched both, it would shock the shit out of you.

Bleach is just chlorine. Adding chlorine to ammonia and it reacts creating chlorine gas. "Blowing" into the mixture is a malicious instruction designed to get you to breath this shit in. This is similar to the chlorine gas that is a banned chemical weapon, the kind they use to drop on people in ww1. Breath enough in and it cooks your lungs from inside your body and you die coughing up blood. If you dodge it and get it just in your eyes, you will probably go blind. The food coloring and copper coins is just to make you believe this is a legit recipe similar to the rock candy recipe that does make actual crystals.

Hey man, my memory is pretty good before 17. It gets blurry after that, but I’m almost positive we did that.

Return department at Meijer didn’t give a fuck about a $35 microwave we bought 4 hours earlier in the night. We told them it wouldn’t even fully cook a bag of popcorn, and it wasn’t a lie.

One time I found a weedwacker and an old half-full edical oxygen tank in the garbage. The weed wacker ran with some gas but seemed like it was running rich no matter how I adjusted it. Remembering I just found a tank of O2, I decided to try and feed it into the carb with it running to lean out the mixture a bit, just to see if it would work. The weedwacker started running like a raped ape until 30 seconds later when it backfired and a little flame started hissing down the hose to the oxygen tank. My retarded ass decided to just run and hide until about 2 minutes later when the flashback arrestor did it's job I assume.

Another time I got a big ass 120v contactor my dad gave me from a GG1 locomotive and wired it up to turn on a light bulb. Didnt get hurt or anythinf, but my mom was pissed when she found me in the garage messing with 120v alone.

Built an Xray machine using an old televison flyback and a vacuum tube, my uncle gave me a phosphorescent screen from an old xray film cassette and I used that instead of film. The website I learned about it from (https://www.dangerouslaboratories.org/body.html) is still around too.

Last cool project we did was inflating some balloons with hydrogen/oxygen mix, obtained from a electrolysis cell I made a few years ago, taping a combination of fuse and incense stick to the balloon and releasing them. Incense makes a great timed fuse, burns real slow. Anyway the balloons go really far and explode with a deep boom. No doubt it scares the shit out of unsuspecting people who end up being closer to the boom than us. Those fuckers are seriously loud.
Good times.

Then we put a triple layer of duct tape on it for. After work we went climbed a nearby Rose's, filled it with 2 bottles of toilet bowl cleaner and gave it a quick wrap around the cap with more tape and tossed it behind the store into a wooded patch separating it from apartments.
The explosion rocked my soul. Felt like god flicked my chest at like 200 ft from ground zero. We hid on the roof until the cops left.

took apart mains powered stuff on a regular basis with zero adult supervision or idea how it worked. got electrocuted more times than i can count.

played around with oxy acetylene torches, lathes and casting metal. all again with zero supervision; i bought the welding kit with saved up birthday card money and the school gave me the lathe.

played around with the chemistry kit making all kinds of stuff, some of which in ate and made me feel funny. i also ate a whole bunch of other odd stuff like chalk, blue tac, air rifle pellets, paper, mountains of dry pasta etc which, retrospectively, may have been the result of not very good parenting.

all quintessentially wholesome kiddo stuff. quite frankly stunning i still have all of my body parts attached and unmutated, so far.

My mom and grandma went to England for a week when I was maybe 13-14 years old. When they were out of town, I saw a big opossum tail in a ripped up tarp in my garage, grabbed the co2 pellet rifle and popped the cunt with the pellet gun until it stopped moving. I guess it had babies so when my mom and grandma got back home they found this ugly opossum baby on the floor of the garage.

Grandma got me a lifetime membership to the national audobon society shortly after.

But these old women don’t know what they want. Can’t let an opossum tear up the garage. And one time we had baby bunnies in the backyard and there were crows sitting in the tree waiting to rip the bunnies apart. My mom told me to scare off the crows, so I waited for a big crow to land in the tree right above the bunnies, and dropped his ass. Of course my mom freaks out.

I built a coil gun out of a bunch of disposable camera capacitors in my moms basement. Turns out if you go to Walgreens and ask for the old disposables after the film is removed they will give you a giant box of them. Radioshack didn’t have a switch that met the voltage rating I was looking for, so I built a knife switch out of some copper sheeting and a piece of floor trim. Hooked up a bunch of camera capacitors in parallel, then wrapped the barrel of an airsoft gun in a bunch of turns of copper wire attached to the capacitor bank and my ghetto switch. Took some fanagling about where to place the cut off nail that i used for a slug, but eventually got it dialed in. It could put a hole through soda cans and cardboard boxes. Screwed the entire set up to a piece of plywood and left it in a closet for a few years. Came across it a when I was 20, and showed it to my gf at the time. She was impressed.

Oldfag here, when i was an early teenager i was pretty interested in high voltage shit, my parents didn't knew anything about electricity so they asked my grandpa who did electricity in a mine. To cut a long story short, i was "only" allowed to produce voltages up to 1000 Volt with a power source that only gave 1-2 Watt of energy (grandpa was pretty strict about that), but at the same time i had no one around actually checking how much voltage i was creating. Thought bridging a 1cm gap was something like a 1000 Volt so i made sure not to make electrical arcs longer than that, turned out it's actually 10kV. Shocked myself a few times and learned a lot. Love you grandpa.

I loved finding boxes full of flourescent tubes as well, places would do a remodel and there would be 100 of them. The vacuum inside the glass makes a cool pop.

We also did a full can of Axe in a bonfire and that was a much bigger explosion than anybody expected. Fun part is when it sends embers fucking everywhere.

I tinkered adjusting the laser on my PS1 since it was a piece of shit that could barely read discs, but it was a slow process and I decided to just not unplug it while tuning it. At some point I completed the circuit and couldn't move until I slumped over and fell to the floor. Took a few seconds for my vision to come back but I went back to doing it the right way and unplugging it before further adjustments.
