Put on a Fireworks Show by Blowing Up Electrical Components

Forget making dangerous explosives with chemicals, simply overload your old electrical components and watch them burst into little balls of fire! All you need are some resistors, capacitors, transistors and a lot of electricity. By no means am I saying you should try this at home, because it looks pretty dangerous, but it's awesome to watch!

Who knew that it was so simple to create a tiny fireworks show at your desk, or anywhere you please? Some of these explosions do create a lot of smoke, and it's probably filled with all kinds of lovely chemicals. Check out the short video above!
