These little things are COOL! I make them all the time, they provide hours of enjoyment, and for the low cost of a packet of matches! Great to do if you have a match bowl at home and you never use any.

First it was skateboarding, now those little punk kids are doing tricks with their zippos! This is defiantely a cool site if you want to burn yourself, or if you are (once again) bored to death and have nothing to do. Check it out!

Make a Polumna (Traditional Mexican firework)

Ahh, yes, the good ol’ Polumna. These are triangular fireworks, you can buy them in places like Tijuana. If you screw up making one of these, you can almost guarantee that someone gets hit in the back of the leg while running away. (I did, at least) Sometimes they jump up, other times they whistle. Good fun right here.

Make a Pepsi Can Stove

This is an interesting project, if any of our readers like to make things, this is for you!
There was the time I made a similar stove back in high school, it had these materials:

1. Glass Bottle
2. Rag soaked in alcohol
3. Alcohol for the bottle

It was easy enough to make, all I did was put the alcohol in the glass bottle, stuff the rag in, light, and run! Only joking! (for those who didn’t get it, I just described a molotov cocktail…) But really, this is a great project to check out if you are going camping, or just have nothing to do.
