    The cashmere/redneck beerkeg launch that youtube throws up at the end is pretty great.
    IIRC anything over a K needs a flight plan.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    Two of the guys have federal explosives licenses and so they can build pretty much whatever they want. Although in this case since the propellant is not a high explosive, I don't think any license was required.

    You do have to get clearance from the FAA to fly over 10,000 feet, but the beer keg rocket didn't go that high. I think it was somewhere around 6,000 feet.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}
