Hi I though of a new twist on the blockhead act to insert a small rocket and name it the human rocket launcher what do you guys think.

Ouch!

But then again I'm thinking about literally blockheading the stick on a bottle rocket and setting it off.

Me and Martin were thinking along these lines a while ago. It would be very nice, but the hazards are high. Take care!

Two immediate problems come to mind. The first, and most obvious, is the sparks and flame and debris shooting into your face as the rocket takes off.

The second is sorta hard to describe, and it kinda makes me get the shivers for some reason. Let's say you've got the bottle rocket blockheaded and you've lit the fuse. As it blasts out of your nostril, a little piece of the stick catches on your skin. Because of the force, it gets pushed in and stripped away at the same time. Basically, you've given yourself a rocket-propelled splinter.

But here's the part that makes me wince. Because of the direction the rocket was traveling (out) the splinter would effectively be pushed into your nose from inside your head. Meaning you couldn't reach into your nose and pull it straight out. To get it straight out, you would have to get behind the nasal cavity and do it from there somehow. Does this make sense to anyone?

Anyway, if you didn't mind a face full of rocket exhaust (protective mask maybe?) and solved the splinter problem (use a plastic stick?), I'd love to see it.

Our solution was a peice of tube in the nose, with the rocket stick placed in that. As for the sparks etc, we do have a way, I think, but I don't really want to share it in case someone tries, fails and sues my a s s off!

SO what happens to the rocket? When your outside, I imagine it'll go off somewhere and start a grass fire. But what if you're in a club? Where has it got to go then?
Just a thought.

Did I mention that we hadn't actually gone through with it Jennie?

Like I said, there are some MAJOR hazards with this one!

Why would it start a fire? If you make sure it is a sertain type of rocket that dosenot explode likae a screamer with thease types of rockets you get minimum sparks.

The only thing I can say about this is I have seen photos where some guys thought it would be fun to fire a bottle rocket from their ass. needless to say, they showed the pic of what looked like 3rd degree burns as the result.

Yep. Third degree facial burns would be a little inconvienent, on the plus side you might also get blinded and not notice how badly scarred you are.

Take care Tait. I have a method for this that I believe will work perfectly, but its simply not worth the risk. Maybe one day, with a proper qualified fire stunt expert in place, but certainly not right now.

Ah yes SteveO from the MTV series "Jackass" in the movies "Jackass: The Movie" and "Don't Try This at Home".

it's.... well..... um..... eew.

But one of the things that he did was ballence a bottlerocket on his chin and tried to fire one off, it exploded, but kind of peaked my curiousity on what would happen if it actually shot off instead.

You could do the blockhead with the rocket going in instead of the stick....once.

LOL! Actually, I would like to see a couple of people try that. (G) Taits idea is something that I'd kinda like to see, but I just wondered about the way to do it.

Back in '89 or '90 a comic at the Montreal Comedy Festival inserted a roman candle in his rear and lit it on stage. I just saw pictures but it was the ***dest thing I have ever seen. I heard later he gaff taped the end so it wouldn't empload. Talk about a crazy ass stunt! I haven't thought of that memory in many years.

This all reminds me of the 2003 Sideshow Gathering when I saw Harley Newman's "fireworks-taped-to-his-chest" entrance.
