This is a 1,000 popsicle stick stickbomb going off. I swear I posted another one on Geekologie before, but I couldn't find it (UPDATE: Found it. More sticks, but less powerful). Anyway, this thing is crazy -- it looks like a frenzied snake when it's going off. Geez, who knew weaving giant popsicle sticks together could be so powerful? I did not. Weaving strings of black magic? Absolutely. *knitting scarf of total destruction*
Hit the jump for the wortwhile video and a link to the Instructable to learn how to weave your own.
Thanks to Julian, who agrees that was way more exciting than watching one of those 'growing snake' fireworks that just grows into a long black turd and stains your hands if you touch it.
