Make Mini-Rockets With Stuff You Already Have

We all love the big, bright, sulphuric booms of fireworks, but forget about battling the crowds to get a glimpse of them. You can make your own little rockets with items you probably have lying around your house.

This video shows you how to do it using just a match, a pin, a paper clip and some tin foil. Apparently, when contained, the fuel on the head of the match is enough to launch the tiny rocket into the stratosphere. And by stratosphere I mean if you were the size of an ant. It doesn't go too far, and you're not guaranteed surefire success each time, but it's a fun project to satisfy pyromanic tendencies. [Reddit via OHYST]
