This is what 300 pounds of binary explosive looks like (VIDEO)

Just FYI, when you’re watching a thing about pirates or privateers or whatever, and someone talks about so-and-so who was killed by a “splinter,” they’re not talking about a needle of wood that got stuck under their fingernail — as stupid painful as that is — they’re talking about that 20-pound piece log that shot clean through the center of that tree.

Pirates do everything bigger. Splinters, booty, magazines … This video is fitting of pirates.

And USA Chemical Supply experts who were on hand, along with a small medical team in case this went wrong. If you want to detonate 300 pounds of binary explosives yourself be sure to have the same staff on hand, otherwise just leave it to the people at Funker Tactical.
