    I'm getting a bit suspicious of this story. Who, in their right mind, would store dynamite with a fuse AND BLASTING CAP installed in it? Dynamite won't explode without significant shock and/or heat and that's nearly impossible to generate with a fuse alone.

    There's probably more to this story, or, perhaps, it was some kind of firework that's "equivalent" to a quarter stick of dynamite. Those claims are mostly hype from the firework seller/distributor/manufacturer.

    It always sounds more exciting to exaggerate a bit. Makes for a betterer news story.

    Don't know and probably never will.

    An old style M-80 was said to have the equivalent energy of 1/4 stick, but haven't been abailable for decades.

    Youda thunk she would've noticed the active burn of a fuse vs the passive burn of a wick.

    The ghost of Darwin strikes again.

    My old ass remembers them. :shakie: They were GREAT. The old style Cherry Bombs were the bomb too (pun intended). New style fireworks suck.
