    Thumbs up Boom!

    Anyone seen the TV show BOOM! on SPIKE TV? How sweet of a job would that be? Getting paid to blow stuff up, every day!

    I watched it once. They are professional (if you can call it that) special effects people who do explosions and such for television and movies. My impression is that they were a pretty immature group (age of their boss notwithstanding). It *was* pretty humorous to watch them modify an RV to launch a toilet through the roof hundreds of feet through the air as the RV then exploded in a huge fireball. I was amused in a juvenile way to watch them drop various objects off of a 10 story building (fridges, TVs, etc). They even rolled a full length mobile home off of a cliff.

    I am distrurbed, however, because I know how many idiots are out there who will watch this show and try to do copycat stuff without the training and without the safety precautions. Scary! And who is cleaning up their messes (the cliff thing made a HUGE debris pile)?

    Watch Mythbusters instead, you'll actually learn something while they blow stuff up, and at least they constantly remind you to not try any of it at home.
