You're supposed to respect and appreciate the carnage your tools can cause but not be scared of it.
Same with electricity, and machinery, and women, and fire.

Kid in school lost three fingers on the table saw in shop class. Lifting the blade guard was a common practice and he paid the price for being a dumbshit. They reattached two, but one didn’t take.

It was the same shop class I used to put the .22 shells in the furnace and wait.

Hint:. At least in small quantities cooking off ammo doesn't do near the damage some people think.
The explosions aren't contained (like in a gun barrel with one way out). Oftentimes the bullet will just lay there and the brass shell (because it's much lighter) scoot back a few inches and that's it.

In other words, to make a more impressive impact you should've wrapped the shells in several layers of tape, or pressed them into some clay, or contained them somehow in anything that would've withstood the heat longer than the primer/powder did, even if only for a split second.

Next time pay attention in science class, then go to shop class.

Only about 1/3 ever went off but it was funny when they did because

Our shop teacher had a half-plastic face from a motorcycle accident and he slathered ChapStick on constantly and talked with a long, drawn-out drawl “Whoo put the bullllettt in the furrrnace?” and some black kid would raise his hand, and he was ascared and never took any black kids to the office. One dude even stabbed another with a pencil and nothing came of it besides a bloody spot on his shirt about kidney level.

I got a little confused at the end there but gravy anyways. Its a good story, and you tell it so well.
