#650 – Connery

The natural fear of having things explode in my face kept me away from most fireworks. The little black cat firecrackers were as big as I would go. I’m also afraid of CO2 canisters and moving a gas stove. I can still pop balloons though… so that’s something.

    This looks a bit more like Inspector Gadget than Sean Connery!

  2. Chris says:

    @MadDavid – Very true!

    Double-O-Biff week? That’s an idea I can get excited about!

    The Duck Has Spoken.

    there are a lot of exploding messages in spy shows, i wonder how that could work, something that bursts into flame when exposed to UV light would be interesting…

  5. £cake says:

    I wonder how they can attach an explosive to paper without it being incredibly obvious. Unless the paper was made of flimsy plastic explosive…?

  6. SEA says:

    Oh…message, not passage. XD

    The put bombs on the paper…VERY tiny bombs XD

    With tiny cameras so they know when to push the button =p

  7. MaskedMan says:

    That countdown must’ve seemed like the slowest in all eternity: This message will kill you in 4… 3….. 2……. 1……….. BIFF!

  8. MaskedMan says:

    Making explosive paper is a trivial exercise in chemistry. I won’t go into detail (I like my freedom!), but I could do it literally in the kitchen sink.

  9. £cake says:

    Creepy……….but how would you ignite it? How would you make sure it detonated ONLY after he read that it would self destruct in 3 seconds?

  10. RG says:

    Explosions: great fun and danger to all.

  12. Foxhound2 says:

    Ahhh so Biff is a secret agent now. I wonder who he works for.

  13. Movie actors in the titles week?

  14. Jackson says:

    A better use for the secret message: open it and press it against the back wall of the closet, to open up a way of escape!

  15. Genesismonk says:

    This message will self destruct in 10 minutes. You should have ample time to escape, assuming you haven’t bought a closet that locks from the outside.

  16. Genesismonk says:

    (Curse my Premature clicking)

    Warning, this message will self-BOOM!

  17. MaskedMan says:

    I’m *seriously* not going into triggering methods! That’s the kinda stuff where they look up yuor IP, and come knocking on your door. Just trust that there are, in fact, methods. Maybe not really precise, but they’ll do for Biff’s purposes. Actually, the easiest way to make detonating paper, the hardest part of the equation is *preventing* a premature detonation.

    Or folding it up and stuffing it into the crack near the lockplate, thus ‘unlocking’ the door rather perminantly…

    Hmmm…possibly explosions week, that would be fun. I remeber from shop for the welder…H before O or up you will go. Hence why I used it once, and let my teacher turn on the gas.

    I don’t know, you just need some sort of fibourus explosive material and some sort of eletrical tirggering device thingy. But oh well, no time for that, I still need to get my time machine working.

  19. AdmiralChaos says:

    Hmm…locked closets, secret messages… I’m thinking spy week.

  20. Reg says:

    Am I the only one wondering how Biff got trapped in a closet with an exploding letter? Or is it futile to bother wondering?

  21. Speakerblast says:

    At least the clothes that are hanging didn’t catch fire. That would suck

    I was in Annie Get Your Gun one summer as the Queen of England. I had to hold a balloon in front of my face and pop it as Annie pretended to fire her prop gun. Every single rehearsal, every single performance, I had to drive a thumbtack into an over-full balloon that was RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY FACE. …the things I put up with for “the craft.”

    A word on roman candles, for Pete’s sake don’t replace the fuse with a sparkler, I nearly lost my eye doing that.

  24. random person says:

    Biff the secret agent. Lol!

  25. reynard61 says:

    “My name is Biff. Biff Biff…”

  26. Sou says:

    I’ve always been apprehensive of over-filled balloons. When I went to the dentist’s office as a kid, balloons were my favorite part for the longest time. (we would pick off the strings and use the helium to make funny voices and kill brain cells) Then one time, as I was playing in the little playhouse with some plastic dinosaurs, a balloon wandered inside and snagged on a rough edge of the wooden ceiling right behind me.

    I don’t think I ever went inside that playhouse again.

    Having stuff explode in your face sucks. I once played Fable 2 and hit an explosive barrel with my katana. Made me think of Aerosmith for some reason.

  28. Foxhound2 says:

    @Manfred- Why did u think of Aerosmith?

  29. -JAD- says:

    Great, it remembers me of the old “Mission Impossible” series I once watched as a child: the guy received the message on a tape which in the process of self-destruction created so much smoke I actually thought the bad guys were attacking him…
