Explosions: How we shook the world. From the BBC.

LOL - Brits pretending they invented everything, AGAIN. Yeah, go on believing that. It`s funny. Tell us how you really invented the airplane and the atomic bomb and all, your jingoistic blather is comedy GOLD!

actually from the latin, detonare, it means "to stop thundering". We use it in the sense of "to thunder down"
intransitive, it means to explode, transitivily it means to cause an explsoion.

Rather apt when your hitting the poo with a hammer..

He`s not claiming he invented detonation, or even that it`s a new thing, he`s simply stating it`s distinctly different to a normal burning reaction. If you knew anything about science you would know that.

"uh am I missing something? What`s so funny about the way he says "Something completely different"?"

I thought that too, then I realised people are being reminded of Monty Python.

"I think this was from Bang Goes The Theory?"
If you go to the Youtube page it says it`s a preview of a documentary series called "Explosions: how we shook the world"
