It's also optentially dangerous.

Any trace of organic marerial (ie, sugar, carbon etc) when you're grinding
it and you'll get more than you bargined for.

For a real goof time mix 1 part KNO3 and 2 parts icing sugar.
Dump it in a little pile *outside* away from anythong flamable
and light it. It burns with a neat pink flame and makes copious
amounts of smoke. Lotsa fun.
