Re: Not just business

Oh - omitted something. Most explosives don't do much at all out in the open. You can set fire to guncotton and it will burn quietly. Yukon miners in the absence of anything cheaper would apparently cook over an open fire made from dynamite. You can make a fuze from a trail of black powder and it will just burn along the trail - till the flame ignites the powder in an enclosed space and the pressure builds up.
