At 2005 Burning Man, we lit off some propane balloons, just because it's fun.

We didn't have a fuse,
so we improvised with tape, toilet paper and gasoline
Disco Dan preparing
the "pilot light"
Clearing the gasoline Dan lights the fuse
and runs for it
A moment before the fireball The initial explosion Boom! The fire cloud

Next attempt,
a larger, garbage bag "balloon"
The fuse lights Ground zero.
Cleaning up,
we hear from an neighbor angry about the noise.
