    You damn well better bet I did, you asked me earlier, i answered with this statement:

    "Well, first you have to realize that gunpowder does not explode. It burns. However, it releases a large amount of sulfur dioxide.(a gas) When you contain the Gunpowder, and burn it, all the gas must go somewhere, so it builds up pressure and blows up its container, giving the effect that Gunpowder "explodes" It is just like putting to much air in a balloon. It blows up. So if you just breathing, nothing happens, but if you put your mouth on a balloon, it explodes. that doesn't mean your breath is explosive."

    If that doesn't answer your question, I don't know what will.
