Poor kid.
Sounds a very nasty life altering injury.
My brother was obsessed with toy soldiers, I mean obsessed, he had thousands of them.
One time he set up a display on the table in the bedroom we shared which really annoyed me as I wanted to use it for something else. So I collected rolls and rolls of caps for a cap gun, painstakingly scraped the gunpowder out, added in a small mountain of sulphur and firework ingredients and waited until nightfall when we were talking in the dark then I threw a lighted match on to the table and there was a huge explosion and a large fireball which blew the table to bits and set fire to the bedroom.
Whenever we talk about it we still agree it was one of the best nights of our lives.
