luv the idea, put instead of using charcoal i would either use fine flour, or corn flour there more finer you can get more in and they are more flamibal... but amazing! thanks ;)

what was it that he used to stuff in the small peice of paper in the beginning. Looked like a black dildo/anal plug.

@killer 12345654321 that was just a screwdriver...

what was the "black powder" that he put in at the start?
