Blowing Up Anvils 200 Feet in the Air

World Champion Anvil Shooter Gay Wilkinson has one passion in life: Shoot anvils up in the air. Yes, you read that right. After putting a generous amount of black powder between 2 anvils and, going against all common sense, light the whole thing up via a fuse, he then runs away to a respectable distance and watches as the whole thing blows up 100 to 200 feet in the air. Sounds fun? It probably is, but I’m certainly not crazy enough to attempt something like this, that’s for sure.
