I once tried to recharge a flashlight battery by plugging 2 wires into a 115 volt wall outlet, then connecting each wire on to opposite ends of the battery (I was 8 at the time)

That didn't end well! :scared1:

Railroad Torpedos

We used to steal these off railroad tracks. Smack em with sledge hammers. Great fun!

What was the purpose of having explosives strapped to railroad tracks?
Warns the conductor of repairs or blockages ahead. Or vice versa (rail workers of coming train) I would think.
