POP! POP! POP! Ultra Fast Stick Bomb "Xyloexplosive"

A much more exciting alternative to domino toppling, kinetic artist Tim Fort holds the world record for what is apparently called a "xyloexplosive device" (or in layman's terms, a stick bomb). Tim uses  2250 tongue depressors to build 562 tiny tension-loaded bombs, resulting in an extremely satisfying chain reaction explosion.

I challenge you to steal Tim's record. Learn the basics of stick bomb building in the second video in the gallery below.


I remember playing with popsicle sticks like that.
