It's a leaf blower with orange fabric. What can possibly make that dangerous?

Nice work, dad. Although you may live to regret it when the kid fires it up at 6:30 Saturday morning.

Don't tell CPS but, those kids have no hearing protection.
It says right on the directions to use hearing protection.

Oh yea, almost forgot, "you are gonna shoot your eye out".

No actual flames...pretty weak. Back in my day, Ronsonol and water guns were mixed to create flamethrowers. Getting the fuel/oxygen mixture was critical. So was the hospital status if you pointed it the wrong way.

I like how they did some SFX in that first few seconds to make it look like fire, then showed the unedited in the next few seconds.

He must have gotten that whacky, zany idea from the Blandarchist Cookbook.

we used sure shots filled with gasoline and a propane torch taped in front of the nozzle.

I always laugh at that one kid in the background who absolutely doesn't give a fark about the flamethrower. I wonder if that non-reaction was done on purpose...

/Funniest comedy movie ever

Considering in my feral days we played tag with Roman candles wedged in pvc pipes and with bow and (blunt tipped) arrows... Not to mention lawn darts... Definitely not up to the standards of the 80s.

I need to move to Canada. My neighbors gave me three kinds a shiat when I gave my kids their first chain saw rocket launcher.

BB gun "wars" with a one pump rule for me and my friends.  No eye protection.  Similar to the roman candles we also did bottle rocket canons out of pipes.  The eighties were a fun time to be a kid.

When my kids were young, we had a water balloon slingshot. We'd put one kid at the end of the street as a 'target' wearing swimming goggles and holding a tennis racket. The other kids (including lots of neighborhood kids) would take turns launching balloons at the target kid about 100 feet away. Balloons rarely got close, but the idea that the kid could possibly get smacked with with a balloon was enough to keep everybody interested. I got lots of weird looks from neighbors. Don't care. Kids had fun.

My father was the fire chief at a large Air Force base.   I learned blowin' shiat up from professionals.

We were poor, all we had was a can of left over spray paint and a lighter

Aqua Net from KMart

And lighter fluid powered tennis ball cannons (all parts available at KMart)

The 1970s were some dangerous fun.

My college roommate sophomore year, her dad showed up, built her a custom Cali king bed desk drawer combo unit, bought us each a bottle of whiskey, left an ounce for the house and an ounce for his daughter, and left his number if we ever needed a care package, he could give you a run for your money.

Science summer camp, bailed on the classes (mom was pissed about the report card thing they sent back, especially since you had to be nominated by your science teacher), and went to a medical supply store, bought 50 feet of quarter inch surgical tubing, that was a fine slingshot. Couldn't see where the water balloon landed when you were going for range, but that didn't make it less entertaining.

My buddies and I would put finishing nails in the ammo for the plastic blow guns you used to be able to buy. Good times!

The fabric will violently assault another child, leaving them emotionally scarred, prone to outbursts, and introduce a high probability that they visit 4chan before mowing down a room full of classmates at the urging of their 'older friend' Erik of some obscure internet-based white power group.

What, no Estes model rocket engine taped to an arrow and then launched "Bazooka" style from a cardboard tube carpet roll?  Those suckers were beautiful!

Wasn't this on an episode of Atlanta?

My high school physics teacher set up a class "practical" activity with various events, including a water balloon slingshot rigged with a colander and surgical tubing attached to the football goalposts. Some bright spark decided to launch teacher's car keys and then had to go hunt for them in the shopping center parking lot a block away.

RIP Chuck, you were one of a kind.
