Hey there fellow I-A-Bers, Experimenting prior to making this video I found it very surprising to discover that an under-inflated balloon could absorb the shock from an ordinary sized firecracker. I fully expected the balloon to pop. This is something I had wondered about as a child and finally had an opportunity to test it out. I must admit though that there were a couple of times where the firecracker did make the balloon pop. I suspect that either paper or a bit of clay used to make the firecracker shot out and punctured a hole thus popping it.

I would`ve thot the expanding gasses that the firecracker created would have made the balloon get a lot bigger. Guess not. Huh.

Either that is one wimpy firecracker, or that balloon is what condoms should be made of(And yes, I understand the physics, just trying to leave an amusing comment).
