Perhaps it is time to once again ponder over the subject Gunpowder?

Which raises the question of what do you mean by 'gunpowder'? A specific compound, or just anything that goes 'bang!'
 
Apparently in your view it can mean anything anyone chooses.

Perhaps the subject matter should be restricted to the substance most commonly called "black powder."

Certainly if we restricted this site to "black powder" we could at least come to some conclusions?

Just how was it discovered, used and misused, etc.!

What made the basic components of it so secret and controlled for many years, and to what ends opponents went to to reduce the suppy of the necessary components to the enemy?

Come on guys, there is a ton of real discussion to converse about? Conversations that covered centuries!

And, you are correct, I do not, nor have I ever consumed large quantities of "salt-petre!"

Sorry Doc!

But, unless "gunpowder" is discussed the rest of this crap should be eliminated!

OK, I have changed my vote again, I now pick Stryborin, sorry Stryiorn, as the ultimate winner!

But, I just cannnot have my arm twisted enough to vote for the Doc.!

Better luck next time!

Certainly none of you supposedly grown men, especially those with some powers on this string, should fail to close it now!


Thank you for your opinion, but we will be the judge of what to do with any threads Opus. Also, please address the topics by discussing the issues and refrain from making the members the topic of any discussion you partake in.

Thank you.
