Watch This Guy Blow Up a Fridge Filled with Explosives and Almost Die

• https://motherboard.vice.com, KALEIGH ROGERS

As a Canadian immigrant, I am usually baffled by America's hard-on for guns. But there's something about this video, wherein a gentleman with a southern accent blows up a refrigerator stuffed with explosives and nearly gets killed in the process, that appeals to me.

According to the video description, the refrigerator was stuffed full of Tannerite, the brand name for a type of explosive material generally used for target practice. It's a binary explosive, meaning it contains two agents that are neutral until you mix them and provide enough energy, in this case by shooting them. It's like shooting at a tin can except that tin can BLOWS UP Y'ALL!

Tannerite is designed to produce a pretty safe, small explosion but when you use it in a container it can create shrapnel, like the door that nearly decapitates this shooter. Refrigerator doors can weigh between 20 and 40 lbs and at that velocity could easily have killed or seriously injured this guy.
