I believe that my dad (as teen) and a cousin made a missle out of carbide, like that carbide cannon. An older man that lived up the road asked them two, "did you see that whizing, flash of light, last night." Dad knew that he knew it was them messing around. Glad that no one got hurt. Dad sure has some stories. Wish that i was retired so I could go get some audio of his stories.
I've got two Uncles on my mom's side with similar stories, such as my grandpa who put buckshot in a thief's behind (may have mentioned that one before). Their was another story about the same thief - he named his boy "Billy Boy Lester Jesse James Jester Hayden Day Spoon Doc Tilly Maguire" and his girl "Blue Idy Bossom, Momma's Little Blossom, Daddy's Little Possum Maguire."
