    Would if the firecracker got into the water wouldn’t the fire go out quickly and it would not have any effect to the human inside the water?

    40 pieces. That is why they are called fragmentation grenades. The shoot fragments not flat bullets

    1:28 please edit this out - the waffle pattern of grenades is purely to make it easier to grip, even if it does coincidentally aid in fragmentation, this was _not_ its intended effect.

      ...plenty of modern day High Explosive and Anti Tank grenades are smooth, dude. Only the frags still have ridges.

    Hand grenades are regulated under the National Firearms Act (“NFA”), a federal law first passed in 1934 and amended by the Crime Control Act of 1968. The 1968 amendments made it illegal to possess “destructive devices,” which includes grenades. (26 U.S.C. § 5801.) There’s no doubt that a live hand grenade designed for military combat fits within the law’s provisions—non-military people may not possess them. If they really are live hand grenades as you say they are, better hope you have a good attorney if you get caught with them

      hate to break it to you dude but your ribs aren't a pressurized cell. There are gaps. Those fish you saw? they have rib cages. Look how much that helped them. If you don't believe me, try it out for yourself, blow yourself up in the water and report back to me on your findings.

    For someone not wearing a helmet like a civilian travelling abroad or around a city.Lie facedown feet together soles of your boots pointing towards the blast ,your hands over your head to protect it from falling debris.The bomb or hand grenade shrapnel has to go through the soles of your boots through your body to get to your brain.Advice from my warrant officer in the army.Your body can be repaired .But not your brain.There are also bullet proof pads you can put in your backpacks. Good to tell this to anyone you know .
