cellar


Hello,
I am looking to build a cellar in my backyard but don't want to rent or hire excavation team because the holiday season really drained my pocket haha. I live in a remote area so explosions aren't that loud . If I were to get a 2 foot ground bit, and drill 4 holes in a circular pattern about 5 feet away from a center point, then grab some thin, thin pvc 2 foot long pvc piping, fill each one with gas, then have fuse paper blow each one. Would it blow the earth out of the ground? And just keep doing that like....4-5 times? And obviously running away when it ignites? Think that would work? Thank you and i hope you all get what i'm saying

I recommend that you get your buddy to videotape the whole thing, then when you blow yourself into the next galaxy he can sell the tape to Jackass, or possibly World's Biggest Explosions, or that NatGeo program on the team that takes down buildings.

Seriously, you are actually contemplating home made explosives to excavate in the backyard? This may be the worst idea I have heard on this forum, and trust me, there have been some truly awful ideas.

Well, if this person is for real, he/she is obviously brain dead, and this forum would win the award for the most ridiculous post ever.

Gummy bears. Lots of gummy bears. Look for sales at bulk grocery stores. The hard part is, Potassium Chlorate. No idea where you'll find that. Mix the two, and BOOM!

I think you would be the first person in history to dig a basement with the help of gummy bears.
