Blowing shit up is not a goal in itself. Seeing your device working the way you intended, is the greatest satisfaction of all.

When you choose toilet paper, kitchen towels, cooking paper and other rolled things based on the cardboard tube they're rolled onto.

You browse the local supermarket shelves looking for the right shape - You find it, and when you get home you promptly discard the contents, and use the container as your next ball mill jar :) and I'm always on the lookout for something better!! A better shape, a nicer one. I'm sure there's better - a much more lovely one with appropriately shaped curves and a tight fitting lid - and much more nicer than the last one. Hmmmmm.

 

Don't get me started about my casual strolls down the baking section. Corn flour, other flours, sticky rice, sticky fingers, sugar etc... yum. :wub:

 

Please don't tell anyone about my pyro fetish.

 

btw. Mikeee, I take it that your "401K" is your retirement fund - much like superannuation that we have here in Oz.

I just start the conversation - someone else has to question them.

When you and your friend considered joining chem 11 in high school to take some of the chemicals they had there

 

When you're beginning to realize that you may be addicted to building salutes

 

When you have to explain to your mom that you're not making an actual dynamite roll with a countdown timer and that you're making a movie prop

When you stop by the parcel mailing store and ask for what tubes they have only to be very pleased with the 50+ great quality tubes they give you

You go to garage/yard sales on weekends and look for cheap golf clubs with titanium heads.

Your garage/workshop is cleaned more often than your kitchen or bedroom.

You cringe when a new member to the forum asks about M8**s.

 

You read the replys, and celebrate when older members try to steer the new person in the right direction.

 

You think about taking up a donation for Mumbles and sending him some kind of award, for he is just 5 posts shy of 10K here as of my post.  

 

IMHO, that is just total hardass dedication to the art of pyrotechnics, especially considering what he has been through. I am not trying to get approval from Mumbles or any one here.  Just saying what I thought needed to be said, and give respect to all the other members who contribute. 

 

The topic was "You know you're a Pyro when" ...but IMHO, a real Pyro has years and years of hands on experianace and mentors others.

you know you are a pyro when you look at the toilet paper roll and wonder if you or your childs pet rat will get ilyas soon as the paper is all gone!
you know you are a pyro when you are more excited with the tissue paper for christmas than the present its wrapped in.

No matter where you are you automatically scan your surroundings for any explosives to move away from or remove from the area before flicking a lighter.
