      I have but nothing too serious! But the guy sitting beside me has set the fire alarm off, and the fire brigade had to come. No body was hurt 🙂

      Aw, astronomers never get to play with explosions 🙁 I just get to watch the sun make explosions every so often 🙂

      I set off a firework once. It was pretty. Nobody died, they just enjoyed the colours.
