_______________________________________________________________________________ Chapter One: An Introduction to the Anarchial Arts _______________________________________________________________________________ First off, I guess I must allot for those of you who don't know what I mean when I say Anarchy. (ALWAYS capitalize that word...don't forget!) Well, maybe I should start off with a definition.. Anarchy: <`an-ahr-kee>...noun. 1. A social structure without law and order, government, or authority. 2. Utter confusion. 3. A rebellion against what's accepted as right or correct. Ya...right outta Webster's own, there. Well, I HOPE that you got some idea as to what I'm talking about from that. If not, toss this out...it isn't for you. Done? Okay. Now that only the REAL people of the world are here, we may commence the study of the perfection of this art, and examine some of the newer developments and state-of-the-art achievements in this religious pastime.
_______________________________________________________________________________ Chapter Two: The Tools of the Arts _______________________________________________________________________________ Explosives - A personal favorite. As everybody knows, there are many, many, files floating 'round out there on this topic. I have seen docs and plans for everything from the front axle car bomb to the exploding ball-point pen . So, you should have no trouble with this section... Flammables - Gasoline, hairspray, ANYTHING that burns enthusiastically classifies. However, with the availability of gasoline , and the relative inexpensivity, (now .68/gal!), this mos t often becomes the chosen fluid. Attain some, and I'l l tell you what to do with it later... Projectiles - Yes, even the most basic of prehistoric weaponry can b e the Anarchist's best friend. Everything from rocks t o eggs to your little brother classifies, anything that ca n be used to damage or destroy when thrown will do.. . however, due to d availability of rocks leads to their wide usage... Instability - C'mon, let's not be silly. Every Anarchist is so BECAUS E of an inherent mental imbalance. A true Anarchist is a psychopathic Anarchist. This REALLY comes in handy whe n preparing for a "run", for to an Anarchist, quite simply , the mad, the impossible, isn't. This s referred to by Anarchists as "guts" or "balls"... Transportation - (Preferably motorized... be real). Or, in many cases, a flock of such. A mandatory requirement for a successfu l authoritative attack, for true Anarchists don't ge t caught at the scene... is sometime the relative inexpensiveness an
_______________________________________________________________________________ Chapter Three: Mild Anarchism _______________________________________________________________________________ As much as people would like to deny it, prank calls, yes, prank call s are a form of what could be known as "pre-Anarchy". It can even be found in The Specter's infamous satire of the loser, "Anarchy for the PreAdolescent", under "Major Devilment for the American Youngster." Face it, EVERYBODY as made prank calls once in a while for entertainment, and we still do, yet now it's more for profit than for amusement. Even the universallydespised jokes, phrases, and clauses told to preteens by their visiting grandparents such as, "Excuse me, but is your refrigerator running?" and, "Is there a John in the house?" are heard from time to time spewing forth from the mouths of giggling infants into the phone receiver into your hateful ear. It's unavoidable. Yet they do successfully annoy you, therefore, in essence, completing SOME form of mild anarchy. Face it, like it or not, these little jerks are the future freaks and Anarchists of America... More inventive forms of this nature include ringing doorbells and running, putting a modem on auto-redial at an enemy's home, letting air out of your neighbor's tires, and selling fake raffle tickets...(100% profit!) Yet, we must move on...

These will provide you with a limitless source of TV-Ad goodies and mail-order stuff.. you've got your own brand new set of Ronco Party Circumcisers.*I* can't!) Another good idea is to cruse over to the 7-11 and.. ..
_______________________________________________________________________________ Chapter Six: Havoc and Hell _______________________________________________________________________________ Just what you've been waiting for, I knew it. Well, there are S O many different forms of Anarchial aggression that it would be impossible to even TRY to list them all. New and inventive methods of destruction are being conjured up every day, so I'll just try to give a brief overview. First off, I'd like to state that you don't HAVE to be a stoner or a headbanger to be an Anarchist, you don't even have to drink alcohol. You can be perfectly NORMAL and...well, I guess if you didn't do any of that you wouldn't be normal, would you? Anyhow, you can be perfectly NORM..er..ODD..and still be an Anarchist at heart you don't have to be into blatant destruction, you don't even have to like heavy metal music...but it helps. Who knows, maybe you just like to replace normal light bulbs with gasoline-filled ones? Maybe you just, for some reason, enjoy running down little kiddies.. YOU can't help it. So, if you can't help it, pursue it. Become the best hit-and-run artist on your block! Maybe even in the whole county! Modify your vehicle to your interests and mount a kangaroo bar on the front of your Ford Bronco or S-15, so that the people you run over slide more easily under your car...maybe even put a window in the floor so you can see who you just helplessly maimed? Ms. Johnson? Oh- hello...did you enjoy the bricks? You did? That's good. If they convulse, you did it right. A good way to make a great start on a successful career as another on e of "those 'Anarchial @#$holes'" is to try drowning the neighbor's cat in their pool. Hmm, knowing how much cats hate water, we'll have to try to find a way around their fears...see how thoughtful Anarchists have to be? I think that it's a very good training for future life myself.. Hmm, howzabout the infamous TV favorite, "cement shoes?" Perfect. But how to get the cat into cement? Ah- replace the kitty litter with cement and spike the cat's water with something like the cyanide found in many medicines. It's barely perceptible, so the catill get blitzed off of its ass and then go to the kitty litter, and get stuck inside.. Cats make a LOT of noise when they realize that they've been trapped, so act quickly before suspicions arise.. Slip the cement out of the bin, (don't forget to use "no-stick" PAM before!), with the cat stuck by all four legs inside, and have a friend wash out the bin quickly..it should be somewhat clean, so then re-fill it with kitty litter before you are noticed. Hurry up, or you'll miss all the fun. Drop the kitty into the pool. If you used the right cement, then you won't have to worry about it sinking.. It is actually quite interesting the way that all the cat's fur floats in the water with every current! Wild.. Next target...the dog! Make your own lynch plan for the dog, I haven't perfected one as of yet, they are too big and noisy.. (I don't consider chihuahuas and the like to be dogs..they are just sub-dogs) You can treat sub-dogs as cats, though, if you want the cat to have some company... Hey, why not try the bird? Easily captured, easily cemented! It really is quite funny watching a bird try and fly with it's feet cemented.. don't worry, they sink just as well as anything... Most of all, though, have fun at it..experiment!
_______________________________________________________________________________ Chapter Seven: The Black arts _______________________________________________________________________________ Well here it is, the path to true Anarchy... Are you worthy of the title of a true Anarchist? We will soon see. The Black arts are Theft, Deception, Destruction and all sub-forms of Anarchy. To master the techniques involved takes time and patience but most of all, it has to be in your blood! You can always tell the difference between a True Anarchist and a dabbler... Pulling the fire alarm at school doesn't cut it (Although that can be fun during a slow day)... Anyone can do that, BUT, can you do it without getting caught? Well,that is the tough part. Even at an early age one can see the signs of Anarchy emerge... if a kid watches Mister Rogers all day, forget it but if he builds crude weapons out of household items and delights in torturing the family pet, his sister etc.. then he has potential. Anarchy usually starts off small and grows over a long period of time... at first, primitive forms of Anarchy such as crank calls, nicky nine doors and petty theft will begin the process. At this point, frequent failure or getting caught may put a stop to the increasing chaotic tendencies within the person in question. If the little bastard is successful in his endeavors, however, he will move on to bigger and better things. The real fun stuff starts in high-school... there are endless possibilities for amusement at the expense of others... these will be documented later. One thing to remember however is that there are many obstacles which stand in your path such as COPS, locks, alarms and of course, the most important thing to watch out for is carelessness on your part. It is because of carelessness that many good hellraisers have met their fate. Well, enough bull@#$%, let's get started!
_______________________________________________________________________________ Chapter Eight: Theft _______________________________________________________________________________ Theft is one of the most common forms of Anarchy, almost everyone does it at one point in their lives... Even the Pope probably stole dime-store candies when he was a kid... Not everyone, however, will perform this maneuver to the same extent or with the same rate of success. The CARELESS ones get eliminated by the forces of good. Regardless of the motive, the objective is always the same... To acquire at no cost and with minimal effort, items which are not originally or rightfully yours... There are two sub-classes of theft. These are single party theft and multiple party theft (with accomplice). Regardless of the type of theft, there are three important elements to consider: Planning, Execution, and ESCAPE. The latter is probably the hardest part and must be planned carefully. A plan is always required for a successful theft and should offer a high probability of success with as little risk as possible.
Sometimes.... Get in and out as quickly as possible._______________________________________________________________________________ Part A: Single party theft _______________________________________________________________________________ It is a good idea to make a surveillance sweep of the target area beforehand in order to decide on the best route to the desired item and a quick escape route. If you are confronted however. do not go directly to the desired item.. if you are perused then you must leave a difficult trail to follow. Sometimes... such as throwing objects at your pursuers or knocking things down in your wake... .. follow your instincts. If possible. then work with what you have.. Always have at least one alternative escape route in case of unexpected intervention by cops or onlookers which render your first one impassable. create obstacles as you go. you may want to try to swipe items store d behind the cashier's counter. it is often easier to execute a successful theft if you have an accomplice. There are ways to do this such as the classic "Can I use your phone? I'm stranded and need to call home" Heh. then you have successfully completed your mission. GET THE $#@! OUT Take the quickest one of your escape routes that you can. but remember that a true Anarchist doesn't get caught at the scene! If it seems inevitable that you will be caught. motorized transport is a good idea. If you escape. try to stay out of direct sight of others. Pocket the item quickly without looking at it or fumbling with it. that's dangerous! For an added challenge. if there are other people present... Once you have entered the target area... Hopefully you will have the foresight not to hit a store in your neighborhood or one that you go to regularly. Browse a little. if they let you then your only problem is how to distract their attention. It sure satisfies the Rambo in me! If you are forced to deviate from your plan due to unexpected interference. be casual and maybe even make a purchase. (cover the license plate) If not. For this reason. all it takes is for him to turn his back for one second and before you know it. Try not to hit the same place every time. stash the goods somewhere safe until you can collect it.. time is of the utmost importance. DO NOT rush out of the area immediately if you don't have to. Be discrete and do not attract attention.unless.. but take the first reasonably safe opportunity to make your way over to it. a good cop chase can really give you a good feeling.. the easiest things to take are items which are kept right in front of the cashier. you lie like a bitch or your captor turns out to be a friend of the family... After you have bin caught then it's all over. FREE JUNK FOOD! Be alert. Dodge on and out of buildings or cars.. Always make a quick scan for mirrors or cameras. hop fences or do what ever you have to do to lose them. backtrack.
" . not even yourself. what better opportunity will the other two have to fill their pockets? If it becomes necessary for all parties to run. or calling the cops. It is an unwritten rule that a guy who gets caught can't squeal on the others if there is a chance they can get away with it. must also be kept aware of what's going' on. After a few hits with the same people. The guy with the goods has to split BUT while the Cashier is chasin g him... the basics are the same but certain adjustments must be made to your plan. You should have included a signal in your plan so that the you can discretely inform your buddy that you have the goods and it's time to leave. First you must decide who will do what.. One person as to distract the attention of onlookers while the other performs the actual crime. it's harder to catch all of you. A third person may have been posted as a look-out and if so. then it is not always necessary for all the members of your team to flee if you have successfully convinced the teller you are not together. If you are confronted. unless you get burned. always watch your back cause as Stalin said "You can't trust anyone.._______________________________________________________________________________ Part B: Multiple party theft _______________________________________________________________________________ In a multiple party theft. at least you now have an added benefit due to the fact that if you split up. don't walk in together or leave together. you should have a kick-ass tea m and will be able to tackle anything! One thing though. One of the important tricks is to make it look like you don't know an y of your accomplishes. You should have a specified rendezvous point and time if you split up so all the parties (minus those who were bagged) can meet and decide on appropriate actions to take to insure no further problems will arise.
look through the opposite window at the door you r gonna open and memorize where everything is positioned. All you need are a pair of vice-grips . once you have established the fact that they are not home. ring the doorbell. if your not into stealing' from convenience stores.. Befor e you even approach the house. Now slip the coathanger in as above and use the window to bend it as you insert it so it touches the inside of the door. For newer cars that do not have the lockbutton but have the switch by the lever on the inside door panel.. you don't need the mirror as your friend can stand on the opposite side of the car and see through that window where you have to move. houses. why risk it? Anyway.Now just press the start button and away you go! When you've had your fun and ya wanna ditch the bike. such as cars. a screwdriver and a dime.. you need more equipment. phone to make sure they're not in. Remember to search the dashboard. Your two sources of entry are doors an d windows. Jam the screwdriver into the ignition. If you have a lock pick set and can use it.. drop the dime into the ignition keyhole and give it a quarter turn to turn off the engine.. If you have a friend helping you. remember that if you think there is a security system on the house FORGET IT and move on. a mirror and a coathanger. long piece of flexible but sturd y wire (coathanger will do) and bend a loop at the end to fit over the lock button. -=SNAP!=. Now loop the end around the lock button and pull. school lockers! Cars are easy. the most risky but often most profitable source is a house. Now.. unlock the door and there you go! If you are in a hurry or don't need to worry about noise or anything .5 ft._______________________________________________________________________________ Part C: Other forms of theft _______________________________________________________________________________ Well. there ar e many available sources of "low-cost" items. Now. just get a 1. purses & wallets and my personal favorite. Before I start describing methods to bypass locks and bolts. clamp the vice-grips to the shaft of the screwdriver and twist.. Slide the wire through the gap between the window and the middle section of the car (not the top of the window). there are many types of door locks and . tape the mirror to the outside of that window with the reflective surface facing into the car. To break into a house.. If you don't have their number or they are a bunch of rug-pilots who don't have a phone.. you can decide on your method of entry. You will need a flashlight. using the mirror or your friend to guide your movements.. go for the trunk to! Motorcycles are a cinch to swipe. glove compartment and back window ledge.. just throw a brick through the window.. Before you begin.
Once you get in.. yes!. This method is becoming more and more difficult with the advent of selfdefense lessons.. If the heads of the bolts are on your side..for most you will need a lock pick set which will be dealt with in a separate chapter. NOTE: ALWAYS LEAVE THE SCENE AS YOU FOUND IT SO THE VICTIM WILL TAKE LONGER TO NOTICE A CRIME HAS BEEN COMMITTED.. there are many things you can do. or wait `till they put it down somewhere where you can whisk it away... Lockers! The easiest way to get money or goods for nothing. Look at the inside panel of your locker that forms the wall separating it from the adjacent one... There is either a deadbolt or a simple twist/pull lock for both. Once you have the purse or wallet. open the door for you..... Have fun! The last type of theft I will discuss is the art of picking pockets .. use those heavy duty metal shears to cut through the shank.. just go into the fron t doors and press every intercom button on the panel. This method is simple but requires time and you will need a hex-driver.. Money! I'm sure you can all find a use for that. One way is to write down the serial # and the combination of the lock your using this year and then next year. you can use various power tools to destroy the door itself... always be thorough.. now you know.. Heh. If you want to hit a locker belonging to an older student.D. Credit Cards! Now we're talking! You can go crazy ordering and carding everything you desire (not to your house).. Most of the schools supply spin combo locks tha t are hard to pick so if all else fails.. you have t o be covert about it. he will of course. make sure no one is home. Windows are the harder to reach but more simply bypassed entry routes... . You may find a spare key in there to. you will have no problems. cut the phone line and GET THE @#$%^ OUT!!! Mission Accomplished. even little Grandma Johnson could be a black belt.. but look. Hmm. Just unscrew the bolts and remove the panel.. wait `till a resident comes in and pretend to be fumbling for the door key. there are hundreds of lockers! With little peckers you can stand behind them and simply watch them enter the combination. Once your in.... you just blow a hole in the window just above the lock (with a bee-bee gun) or bar and use wire or a thin screwdriver to knock the bar out or release the lock.. you are on your own. Basically all you have to do is either run by the victim and snatch it. If you have a lot of time and are in a deserted area. then grab a pillow case or a garbage bag and take everything that is even remotely valuable! Once you have done that.. you have to find alternate methods to keep you busy for a whole year. in the wallet to find out their address and away you go! Geez. Some deluded idiot will let you in. if so.. look at the I. You might as well start close to home by easily breaking into the lockers on either side of yours. what a week for the poor sucker eh! First his wallet now his house and car!!! Heh. find it and voila! In the mean time. Apartment buildings are also a good target. now why didn't you think of that before? Well. If not.
there's nothing' like a good hour of destruction to relieve al l that tension after failing your math exam.To mark out your territory & let the world know you were there..... o A small... "efficient" weapon - o Flashlight o Several projectiles o Smoke Bombs o FIRE o Explosives ..._______________________________________________________________________________ Chapter Nine: Destruction _______________________________________________________________________________ Ahhh.A . You ca n stick to doing mild damage with your hands or you can obtain a wide variety of weapons for more severe effects. you will need the following: o Camouflage (dark clothing.Not compulsory for the job but they sure add a spark to the evening! . .. This form of Anarchy allows for more creativity than most. A MUST!!!! . o Spray Paint o Lock Picks & a Bag .Just in case an easy target for theft presents itself while your vandalizing. It is usually easier to make your own weapons and there are a large number of chapters dealing with the production of explosives and simple weapons. For a successful strike on your target area.. Yeah you remember. mask)o A small bat or solid stick/bar To prevent discovery & Identification To eliminate people or dogs who get in the way & to increase destructive power For serious emergencies only! (knives or mini-chucks are good) So you can see! To increase fire power and range valuable tool... the one you were supposed to be studying for while you were mixing explosives in the garage.
tie a cherry bomb to the shaft using a twist tie and light the fuse. First. being sure to leave the rivets intact. little nun-chakaus. All you need are a pair of those metal nut-crackers and a 2 foot length of chain. Then just light and throw. it will detonate on contact with a solid surface producing large amounts of flame and flaming projectiles. insert a rag.

Now open up the last link at each end of the chain and close them around the rivet shaft on the metal bars. HEY! Look what you've done. light and throw. For an exploding dart. take the nut crackers and cut through the hinge with metalshears.._______________________________________________________________________________ Part A: Home-Made Weapons _______________________________________________________________________________ Mini-Chucks: These little babies are easy to make and are easily concealable.. Tennis Ball Bombs: Cut a one inch slit in the tennis ball and stuff it full of wooden match-heads.. (A little gunpowder adds to the effect) Once the ball is firmly packed. Flaming Darts/ Exploding Darts: Take ordinary darts and wrap an oil soaked strip of rag around the shaft..

Why not leave your initials on the guys lawn using gasoline or weed-killer? Better yet. a graphic picture of him pumping the local stray dog. (If you are really on the ball you can rip off the delivery car while Guido is walking from door to door). then crank the faucet and run like a *&^%er! If you do this at 3am. .. his house will be floating down the street before he even wakes up.. Heh. the fun part is when you order a party-size pizza to that address. Address Switching: Use your trusty screwdriver to switch address numbers and steal mailboxe s throughout the neighborhood. you can make three houses in a row with the same address. heh.

A true Anarchist has a remarkable ability to overcome any obstacle using only the materials at his disposal. ._______________________________________________________________________________ Chapter Twelve: Weapons & Explosives _______________________________________________________________________________ Introduction: Assuming that you have read the first bit in this series and that you are a true Anarchist. just that you should be able to get by using whatever you have. We have compiled some of the easiest to make but most destructive devices in the Anarchist's arsenal of home-made weapons and explosives. I'm sure you will find this chapter both interesting and useful. I am not saying that you need to know 100 different ways to kill a man with a stapler. This chapter shows you a few ways to increase your destructive power using simple household items. so please use caution. Neither myself nor anyone associated with the creation of this book will take any responsibility for damage or injury sustained as a result of attempting any of the procedures depicted. Remember that there is a certain element of risk involved in handling some of the devices which you will see.

and bend them so you can glue the edges of each strip together. MAKE SURE they fit snugly. and on the underside. and inser t them Carefully in the "box" from the top side of the lid. and tape the son of a bitch up as muc h as possible. cut 4 striker strips off the matchbooks._______________________________________________________________________________ Chapter Fourteen: More easy gadgets _______________________________________________________________________________ These devices aren't of the chemical nature. The simple land mine is used i n other devices. What it will look like when it's made is a 3cm long hollow box. with the ends open. will a cross of cardboard on the top side. and cut a square hole in the lid the width of the striking strip on a book of matches (about 5mm). Finally. Next. over the lid as well. _______________________________________________________________________________ Simple mine _______________________________________________________________________________ This is where it all started. Then. Now cut the joint edges of the box only on the top side of the lid. You then push this box halfway through the lid with the hole in it. so you can have suppor t when gluing it. otherwise they'll slip about and won't strike the insides of the box and therefore light everything else. to hold it better. First. but takes patience to make it work well. so you can fold these sides down to the lid. With these you must make a "box". Next cut your match heads off and fill the canister. They are also the kinds of devices which can be improved by simply making them bigger. the rest of the box is sticking out. Materials: Film Canister (or Folger's Coffee can if you wanna blow away the block) Packs of matches (17 fill a film canister). take the lid of the canister or can. You might want to leave an extra millimeter of cardboard on the edge of the strips. It now will look like a lid. Bury the whole thing in the ground so just the "button" (the 2 or 3 matches. Make sure the whole inside of the box is the brimstone side of the strips. so they shouldn't be hard for anyone to build. Patience. tape them together tightly. Because it's hard to glue just edges together. put the lid on. which are about half way into the box) . etc. The device itself isn't complicated. take 2 or 3 matches. Form the box around a pencil or something.
And when someone steps on it. Or a 2 litre pop bottle. BOOM! Of course with a film canister. but if you had a Godamn coffee can. using the cap in place of the lid!! . you could blow someone's foot off. the explosion isn't too big.are sticking above ground.
Pierce a hole in the bottom of the canister (big enough for strong string to fit through). pretty impressive I guess. You might find it hard to the string through. ABS piping (available at Home Hardware) Blacks is good because the film canisters fit PERFECTLY. the basic principle of the mine is used here. THE BETTER. String. Now. once you have made the 2 or 3 match button (from the first mine explained) you will be pulling it from the bottom rather than stepping on the top. plastic bits etc. Now walk around like you have a shotgun and whenever you want to blow something away. will fly out. just point and pull the string. And drop the mine CAREFULLY down to the bottom of the pipe. and put on the lid. Matchbooks. You want to hold this explosion as much as possible. Tie the string to the matches in the brimstone box and then bring the string through the bottom of the canister. make a basic mine (you MUST have the mine to do this). Ok. Ask Blacks for TRANSPARENT film canisters. THEN do th e rest explained above. Materials: Container. but try and get it through a small a hole as possible. so when it goes off it's more powerful. fill the canister with match heads. But don't put in the match heads yet. insert the string through the pipe. Once again._______________________________________________________________________________ String Cannon _______________________________________________________________________________ Once again. You don't want anything coming out the back! A good idea is to. Violent nature. the more you tape. fire. Put a hole (for the string) in the blocked end of the piping. . A spray of match heads. But only the see through ones. Piece of piping with one end closed off (make sure it is possible to put a hole in the closed end though).
First. not use a an opener). you just need some good tools to do it properly. since they have a high edge which gets in the way of using a can opener). take one of the cans. Basically. Materials: 4 or 5 cans. Then. you'd see a semi-circle missing on the left. if you looked down the barrel of the thing. It must look this way. as long as it's hollow (a tennis ball can be used. that's exactly what this is. Useful for small scale war. making sure that the open part in the bottom of each can alternates with the one below it. Strong tape (or a welder if you can get your hands on one) Matches (MUST be "eddy lights" (the ones with the different coloured tip)) Squashball or dogball. this device is quite easily made. Anyway. naturally). In other words. but you need cans wide enough to house it) Ronson's lighter fluid Will to blow something up._______________________________________________________________________________ Mortar _______________________________________________________________________________ Basically. Do exactly the same thing to all the rest of the cans as explaine d above (NOT the last one though). make a small hole in the side of the bottom can (as close as yo . Now you must tape/weld all these cans together (with the one with the bottom on the bottom. It shoots out s that explode on contact. so you have a semi-circle of tin missing on the bottom. then the right (directly opposite) then the left etc. cut about 3/4 of it out. When you get to your last can. leave the bottom on and still cut th e whole top off. now that's done. This might be hard if you used pop-cans since the edges would be very rough (because you'd need to actually CUT off the top. like in this diagram: ______ /}*****\ / }******\ [ }*******] [ }*******] \ }******/ \}*****/ ~~~~~ projectile * = amount of tin left on bottom of can. on the bottom of the can. Last. and cut the entire top of of it (this might be hard with pop cans.
It just has to be big enough to squirt the Ronson's inside. tilt it upright at about a 45 degree angle. and BOOM. and it will explode when it lands to boot! . so it doesn't wobble too much. in case it doesn't catch right away). The ball should go VERY far if the cannon is made well.u can get to the bottom). Make a small slice in the ball (not a hole). remember) until it's quite tightly packed. you need to make "Roly Poly Match Heads". Squirt some ronsons into the small hole at the bottom (and a bit around the hole. You must find a ball that is hollow. but doesn't have trouble coming out the end. Next. light it. and start pouring in cu t off match heads (eddy lights. and will fit as best as possible in the cans. Put this down the barrel of the mortar.
barely anything comes out the back. and your right arm will be close into you. one will act as the front handle. Tape the two "handles" to the bottom of the larger piece of ABS (the launcher itself). so the fins of the rocket can be fit inside. you will have to make makeshift fins for the from so the rocket is pointing straight ahead inside the launcher. they are the better of the two types. and only the back end up. This is if you want an explosion at the end._______________________________________________________________________________ Simple Rocket Launcher _______________________________________________________________________________ Materials: ABS piping (at least 8 cm diameter. Next put the rocket together (you can read the instruction s yourself). voila. You will be holdin g it most likely on your right shoulder. the transparen t film canisters (once again. but it's good to get another pack of them) Mine. and it should be about 4 feet long). Relatively easy (as I always say) to build. This one foot piece will need to be cut in half with a hack saw. since the rocket only supplies fins for the back end (because your supposed to be launching it up. just a bit of smoke). Also get a smaller piece of ABS piping about 1 foot long and 3 inches wide (home hardware will tell you what diameters the piping comes in exactly). *BUT*. Tape them in places where it's comfortable to you. ready to pull the switch. So.

I am not joking in giving this warning. If you don't know anything about chemistry. as they are all dangerous and could seriously injure or kill you if done in larger amounts. Unless you have a death wish._______________________________________________________________________________ Chapter Fifteen: Complex Explosives _______________________________________________________________________________ This chapter deals with the instructions for creating some dangerous explosives. . If you intend to make any of these explosives. do so in SMALL AMOUNTS ONLY. you shouldn't try any of the following unless you have had prior experience with chemicals.
Here it is: potassium chlorate + potassium perchlorate + ammonium nitrate + ammonium dichromate + potassium nitrate + sugar + sulfur + iron filings + charcoal + zinc dust + some coloring agent. When a drop or two of water is added. Ammonal: Ammonal is a mixture of ammonium nitrate (a strong oxidizer) wit h aluminum powder (the 'fuel' in this case).. purple= iodine crystals. C. I have given it the name 'MPG Vulcanite' tm).. (scarlet= strontium nitrate. A mixture of 1 part potassium chlorate to 3 parts table sugar (sucrose) burns fiercely and brightly (similar to the burning of magnesium) when 1 drop of concentrated sulfuric acid is placed on it. do you think water puts out fires? In this one. yellow= sodium chloride. but if in a closed space it builds up pressure from the released gases and can explode the container. which then burn fiercely. etc. The heat vaporizes the iodine (giving off purple smoke) and the ammonium chloride (becomes purple when mixed with iodine vapor). which explodes on formation.). Using various chemicals. Chemically ignited explosives: 1. so you may want to experiment a little using small amounts. crimson= calcium chloride. It also may ignite the hydrogen and begin burning. Gunpowder works like this: the potassium nitrate oxidizes the charcoal and sulfur. Ammonium nitrate: 8 grams Ammonium chloride: 1 gram Zinc dust: 8 grams Iodine crystals: 1 gram 4. B. 3. the ammonium nitrate forms nitric acid which reacts with the zinc to produce hydrogen and heat. Mixture: ammonium nitrate + ammonium chloride + iodine + zinc dust. Carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide are the gases released. it burns fiercely. burning the sugar as well. So._______________________________________________________________________________ Part A: Common "weak" explosives _______________________________________________________________________________ A. What occurs is this: when the acid is added it reacts with the potassium chlorate to form chlorine dioxide. it starts it. Gunpowder: 75% Potassium Nitrate 15% Charcoal 10% Sulfur The chemicals should be ground into a fine powder (separately!) wit h a mortar & pestle. I am not sure of the % composition for Ammonal. 2. If gunpowder is ignited in the open. I have developed a mixture that works very well for imitating volcanic eruptions. Potassium permanganate + glycerin when mixed produces a purple- .

Powdered or ground materials may also be mixed by placing them on a large sheet of paper on a flat surface and then rolling them across the sheet by lifting the sides and corners one at a time. 4. such as buildings. A clear understanding of their dangerous properties and due care in the handling of ingredients or finished products is necessary if accidents are to be avoided. For you kids out there who watch too many cartoons. Mixing of batches should be done outdoors. use a clean piece of paper on the scale pan for each item. and replace it on the storage shelf. etc. Don't keep open containers of chemicals on your table. Be a safe worker. Always observe all possible precautions. and can be really dangerous if you don't treat it seriously. close it. Pyrotechnic preparations and explosives are. Read 'em and MEMORIZE 'em!! At the beginning. Mix only small batches at one time. . unstable. Don't go for big mixes -. grind them separately. shock. and subject to ignition by explosion or heat. 3. Some mixes may most conveniently be made by placing the ingredients in a plastic bottle and rolling around until the mixture is uniform. Thoroughly wash and clean equipment before grinding another ingredient. an ounce or so. Each part will start with a set of safety rules. Never hold your body or face over the container. Glass also should not be used since it will shatter in case of an accident. Mixes should also be made in NON METALLIC containers to avoid sparks. Don't skip over them. Read it thoroughly before starting anything. The power of an explosive cubes itself with every ounce. and Color Mixtures _______________________________________________________________________________ This is serious stuff. point the open end of the container away from yourself. by their very nature.they only make for bigger accidents. When weighing chemicals. particularly the following: 1. Then discard the used paper into a bucket of water before weighing the next ingredient. NEVER TOGETHER. 5. When finished with a container. or at most. This means a few grams. Then there will be some things that you HAVE TO KNOW about the materials you will be using and making this time. away from flammable structures. In all cases. Flares. or friction. there will be a set of general rules that always apply. it STAYS blown away. (9 Ounces is 729 times as powerful as one ounce.) 2. don't screw around with it. Handy small containers can be made by cutting off the top of a plastic bottle three or four inches from the bottom. since accidental spillage or mixing may occur. Dispose of any chemicals spilled on the workbench or equipment between weighings. barns. Any stirring should be done with a wooden paddle or stick to avoid sparks or static. Where chemicals are to be ground. Use only clean equipment.
Again. use any metal to load chemicals or put chemicals in. please do not use metal in any circumstance. Always wear gloves when working with chemicals. Make sure there are NO open flames present. ALWAYS work with someone. 7. Always wear a dust respirator when handling chemicals in dust form. preferably locked away. 20. Fireworks with metal casings are worse to handle than a live hand grenade. Never ram or tamp mixes into paper or cardboard tubes. These small particles gather in your lungs and stay there. furnaces. Have a source of water READILY available. 17. 8. 9. Never smoke anywhere near where you are working. or pilot lights in stoves!! Sparks have been known to very readily explode dust floating in the air. etc. 14. Two heads are better than one. Be sure threads of screw top containers and caps are thoroughly cleaned. Pour the material in and gently tap or shake the tube to settle the contents down. . 15. Don't forget to wash your EARS AND YOUR NOSE. 13. 10. ALWAYS WEAR A FACE SHIELD OR AT LEAST SHATTERPROOF SAFETY GLASSES. Materials that were once thought to be safe can later be found out to be dangerous stuff. hose. 11. Since many of the ingredients and mixes are poisonous. 19. If you must work indoors. Never. Traces of mixture caught between the container and closure may be ignited by the friction of opening or closing the container. This applies also to containers with stoppers of rubber or cork and to all other types of closures. (Fire extinguisher.) 18. have a good ventilation system. Many people have been KILLED because of flying fragments from metal casings. Never use any metal container or can. WORK WITH CLEAN CONDITIONS. Any careful worker does when handling dangerous materials.6.) No hot water heaters. but look for whatever extra information you can. Finished preparations may be stored in plastic bottles which will not shatter in case of an accident. they should be stored out of reach of children or pets. 16. This includes the very dangerous CO2 cartridges. Store ingredients and finished mixes where they will not be a fire hazard away from heat and flame. Always wear a waterproof lab apron. Some information will be included in each bit. Be sure lenses and frames are not flammable. and NO MOTORS (they produce sparks inside. Throughout any procedure. under any circumstances. Wash your hands and face thoroughly after using chemicals. 12. They may cause serious illnesses later on in life. Always be thoroughly familiar with the chemicals you are using.
After a half hour or so. or to add color to a fire. or powdered metals don't drop them. the actress who played the good witch was severely burned when one of the exploding special effects got out of hand. These rules may all look like a lot of silly nonsense. Available as a white powder. NEVER strike any mixture containing Chlorates. by itself. If dust particles start to form in the air. Barium Nitrate Ba(NO ) 3 2 . It is poisonous. Bichromates. The actor we know of as the tin man was actually a replacement. like powder. (There is also a is useless to us. etc. Don't take this stuff lightly. these chemicals were being used under the direction of people a lot more knowledgeable of chemicals than you are. Melting point is 414 degrees. and terrible accidents still happened. but let's look at one example. Some can be highly dangerous.21. Nitrates.

All grades from technical (99. as are all Barium salts. The actress who played the bad witch got really messed up by the green coloring used on her face. If any device you've built fails to work. Avoid contact with the skin. It is used both as an oxidizer and color imparter. It is as powerful as Potassium Chlorate and should be handled with the same care. Perchlorates. or even handle them roughly.
it is not only poisonous. Used as an oxidizer and colorizer. actually) resulting from the burning of crude oils. Can be purchased in some drugstores and some agricultural supply stores. Dextrin This can be purchased as a white or yellow powder. Mercurous Chloride HgCl . unless otherwise specified. emerald green powder. The uses and precautions are the same as with a mixture containing Potassium Nitrate. It contains arsenic. Copper Sulfate CuSO *5H O 4 2 Known as Blue Vitriol. poisonous. It is a good cheap glue for binding cases and stars in fireworks. It has been used as an insecticide.Poisonous. otherwise harmless doses can be as bad as one large dose. As with all lead salts. this poisonous compound is available as blue crystals or blue powder. Copper Chloride CuCl 2 A color imparter. Use dust form. crystalline. this is poisonous. It is used in fireworks to add color. Lampblack C This is another form of the element carbon. It is a very finely powdered black dust (soot. poisonous powder. It can be purchased as a dust on up to a coarse powder. and it should be black. It is also called King's Green or Vienna Green. It is used for special effects in fireworks. The softwood variety is best. Used as a colorizer. Used in fireworks and explosives as a reducing agent. but the poison accumulates in the body. Charcoal C A form of the element carbon. not brown. Careful with this stuff. so a lot of small. which melts at 501 degrees. Lead Chloride PbCl 3 Available as a white. Copper Acetoarsenite (CuO) As O Cu(C H O ) 3 2 3 2 3 2 2 The popular name for this is Paris Green. As with all copper salts. and is available as a technical grade.
It will not yield its oxygen as easily. The bright orange crystals are poisonous. It is a poisonous. Never confuse this chemical with Mercuric Chloride. as they may explode spontaneously. Potassium Chlorate KClO 3 an by is is This. Shellac Powder An organic rosin made from the secretions of insects which live in India. Sodium Oxalate Na C O 2 2 4 Used in making yellow fires. this chemical is a white or slightly pink powder. which you should . It is also poisonous. It can often substitute for Potassium Chlorate to make the mixture safer. The commercial grade is used in fireworks and matches. Red Gum Rosin similar to shellac and can often replace it in many fireworks formulas. It opened the door to what fireworks are today. but to make up for this. Before it was known.Also known as calomel or Mercury Monochloride. which is orange in color. Potassium Dichromate K Cr O 2 2 7 Also known as Potassium Bichromate. Available as a white powder. The common mixture of shellac and alcohol sold in hardware stores should be avoided. This is non poisonous ONLY if it 100% pure. This powder will brighten otherwise dull colored mixture. it gives off more oxygen. Potassium Nitrate KNO 3 Commonly called Saltpeter. It is well known as a component of gunpowder and is also used in other firework pieces. This chemical is an oxidizer which decomposes at 400 degrees. perhaps. which poisonous in any purity. mixtures were never spectacular in performance. Never ram or strike a mixture containing Potassium Chlorate. Available as a fine dust. The exact effect it produces in fireworks is not obtainable from other gums. Red Gum is obtained from barks of trees. Purchase the powdered variety. Do not store mixtures containing this chemical for any length of time. Sometimes it is replaced Hexachlorobenzene for the same purpose. white powder that is used as an oxidizer. is the most widely used chemical in fireworks. Potassium Perchlorate KClO 4 Much more stable than its chlorate brother.
it has the fineness of flour. Should be either of the technical or high purity grade. only the dust form is in any way suitable. in a pure. Strontium Carbonate SrCO 3 Known in the natural state as Strontianite. Purchase the yellow. but has a disadvantage in that it will absorb some water from the air. Used in certain star mixtures. Zinc Dust Zn Of all the forms of zinc available. It comes as a white powder. Sulfur S A yellow element that acts as a reducing agent. It burns at 250 degrees. as a rocket fuel. which is comparable to the technical grade used in fireworks. Strontium Nitrate Sr(NO ) 3 2 By far the most common chemical used to produce red in flares. this chemical is used for adding a red color to fires. stars and fires. finely powdered form only.avoid breathing. Strontium Sulfate SrSO 4 Since this chemical does not absorb water as readily as the nitrate. . it is often used when the powder is to be stored. Available in the technical grade as a white powder. Other forms are useless without a lot of extra and otherwise unnecessary effort to powder it. technical. In its natural state it is known as Celestine. Avoid breathing the dust. and with sulfur. As a dust. It does double duty as an oxidizer. or natural state. which can cause lung damage. giving off choking fumes.
and the ease with which the oxygen is supplied makes it burn faster. They give up all the oxygen they have. there can be coloring agents to impart a color to the fire. Note that Nitrates are stingy with the oxygen that they give up. they are not as sensitive as the Chlorates. They only give one third of what they have. and this will make it harder to control the speed at which the mixture will burn. For example. But some are less desirable. But the mixture is also MUCH more sensitive to shock. like sodium. but they cover most all cases. Most mixtures contain an oxidizing agent. and regulators that speed up or slow down the speed at which the mixture burns. It takes less heat. and perchlorates provide the oxygen. However. we could instead substitute other metals. Furthermore. will absorb moisture out of the air. and also give it all up. which hold the mixture in a solid lump. because a smaller volume of the mix needs to be wasted on the oxidizer. Instead of potassium. Mixtures using chlorates burn more spectacularly. and the chemical would still supply oxygen to the burning mixture. such as nitrates. we'll use the letter "X" to show the presence of a generic metal ion. binders. Oxidizing agents. chlorates. Potassium Nitrate contains a metal ion (Potassium) and the oxidizing radical (the Nitrate). Some Perchlorate Some Chloride Oxygen . barium. or less shock to get that oxygen loose. Sodium Nitrate. or strontium. on the other hand. They usually consist of a metal ion and the actual oxidizing radical. That is. for example. In addition. they give it up more easily. and a reducing agent. they're less likely to explode if you drop or strike them. which burns to produce hot gasses. Some Nitrate Some Nitrite Oxygen + O 2 2XNO ---> 2XN0 3 2 Chlorates are very generous. which usually produces oxygen used to burn the mixture. so they make mixtures that are "safer". Some Chlorate 2XClO 3 Some Chloride ---> 2XCl Oxygen + 2 3O Perchlorates round out our usual set of oxidizing tools. Perchlorates contain even more oxygen than Chlorates. These are not all the possibilities._______________________________________________________________________________ Chapter Seventeen: The Chemistry of Pyrotechnics _______________________________________________________________________________ Most pyrotechnic mixtures follow a very simple set of chemical rules. In the following examples. We'll go over those now.
Barium -Barium salts give a pleasant green color. Barium Nitrate is most often used. but has the disadvantage of being very poisonous. In this case. Sodium Oxalate is usually used. Also. Zinc dust is used in some cases. but it doesn't burn very well. The cheaper lab grades of potassium nitrate often contain traces of sodium. Strontium -Strontium salts give a strong red color. when extra fast burning speed is needed. The finer the powder. very pure grades must be used. Since it still doesn't produce a very memorable blue. the faster the burning rate. Usually Copper Acetoarsenite (Paris Green) is used. Powdered metal. and the proper combination will help control the speed of combustion. It's long been known tha t various metals produce different colored flames when burned in a fire. and is very poisonous. This does not absorb lots of water. that hold . The color is certainly worth the effort. Note that if we use an oxidizing agent that contains a colorizing metal. it is desirable to slow down the burning speed. metal powder is often added. it can do a double job. so acts as a reducing agent. It burns. Sodium -Sodium salts give an intense yellow color. This compound contains arsenic. Sodium Nitrate absorbs moisture from the air. The reasons are buried in the realm of quantum physics. like sulfur and charcoal (carbon) simply burn th e oxygen to produce sulfur dioxide and carbon dioxide. and we can present them here. corn meal is often used. (not dust) particularly aluminum or iron.XClO 4 ---> XCl + 2 2O Reducing agents. Copper -Copper salts are used to give a blue color. Instead. In rare cases. Coloring agents are very interesting. and scoop it from the supply jar with a very clean scoop. It can produce oxygen and color. which enhances the color. but the results are what matters. In order to get the purple coloring. Some mixtures that burn in colors also contain binders. which completely obscure the purple color. Magnesium powder or dust is often used for speed. and expensive. are often used to produce a mixture that shoots out sparks as it burns. if you can get it. as well. and you must be very careful to mix it in very clean vessels. Blue is the most difficult color to produce. As has been said. but not as well. It's usually best to include a mixture of the two in a pyrotechnic mixture. it's often used with mercurous chloride. to boot. as they burn at different speeds and temperatures. but is also poisonous. Aluminum dust works. if they're very pure. The proportions change the speed. and it's usually not too spectacular. Strontium Nitrate is a very convenient material for red. and so is not really suitable to impart color. Potassium -Potassium salts will give a delicate purple color. So intense in fact that any sodium compounds in a mixture will usually wash out other colorizers. like in rocket s and firecrackers.
Stars that are extruded are often called "pumped stars" those that are rolled out are "cut stars". it's just packed into a thin paper tube.

If it's to be fired from a roman candle. Stars fired from an aerial bomb are usually made by rolling the moist mixture flat. Shellac mixtures are moistened with alcohol to get them to stick together. If the colored mixture is to be used as a flare. These lumps are usually referred to as stars. the binder is either a starch called dextrin or finely powdered orange shellac. A shellac-like material called red gum is also used on occasion. and cutting it with a knife into small cubes. In some mixtures. the shellac powder also helps produce a nice color. it's usually extruded from a heavy tube by pushing it out with a dowel.
