When you're on vacation away from everything, standing in a National Park looking up at Mt. Rainier and all you can think is: "Wouldn't that make a great backdrop for a few nice shells?" or "I wonder if a 4 oz. endburner would make it to the top from here?"

 

True story..... me, 5 days ago.

You find that same bit of visco on you after making it through airport security several times and being explosives tested (result - negative).

... You've got more kinds of sugars and sugar alcohols than a confectionery.

... Carbohydrate powders of all sorts get experimented with as fuels.

... Hardware, pottery, and grocery stores turn into pyro stores - for tooling, fuels, oxidizers, colorants, etc.

... You'd never think of putting a cake in the oven.

... Comets and stars are here on Earth too, not just in space.

... You try to simultaneously outperform and "outcheap" consumer fireworks.

... You think for a moment when asked about your hobbies and come up with a less suspicious-sounding answer (i.e. making motors for model rockets).

... Paper grocery bags get saved to be turned into tubes.

... You save every dowel you find.

Merely lighting a charcoal grill prompts your neighbors to drag out the lawn chairs.

When punching passfires into your comet pistons, you say to yourself "keeping it holey on the sabot."

Your doctor says to lower your intake of nitrates and then you ask if you can switch to perchlorate.

When you are at grocery store in the fruit and vegetable section and check if there are any empty cardboard tubes from plastic bag rolls. And if there are, you just take them without even buying any vegetables.

.. When you sit on toilet, stare at the paper roll and think " what could I do with the cardboard roll, once the tissue is finished". I still havent use one tube of them, but thinking so often....
