    LOL Hmmm, I wonder what else could be converted in to a cannon? And how to make it more powerful?

    Has anybody ever done that thing where you make a tin of flour explode?
    To explain. You get a tin with a metal lid (a bit like a paint tin). You then make a hole in the tin for a hose. Put flour in the tin. Then light a candle, and put it in the tin too. Then put on the lid, and blow through the hose. POP! The lid flies off!
    What happens is that you blow the flour up in to a fine cloud which is then ignited, and burns fast - which is a basic explosion. Great fun. My Dad helped me make one when I was about eight. :)
