This is what happens when you load a Mac Pro with explosive C4

I'm not really into blowing up expensive electronics with C4 or anything else for that matter but I'm perfectly fine when other people do it on the stuff they spent their own money on. Who am I to care what they do with it? It's their money. Plus, it provides me with some mindless entertainment when I end up on the weird part of YouTube late on a Friday night.

You know the place, I'm sure most of you have ended up there once or twice before. The folks at RatedRR wondered, how much C4 will a Mac Pro hold? And with that question play, they decided to find out. Hit play on the video, and don't bother crying. Your tears will be wasted.

I could think of a lot better stuff to blow up than expensive high quality computers.

khobia2 says:

Totally sad. Imbeciles. Only in our country will we waste this kind of money to make a stupid video. Give the damn thing to a school or something. Ridiculous. Having said that I was impressed that the Pro still worked after being dunked like a watermelon in the tub of water.

RavenSword says:

A lot of times they make back the money spent and more from YouTube views and others stuff.

The world doesn't work like this though. Unfortunately.

Why not blow up something more worthwhile? An Alienware PC turned into a Hackintosh. There's a better waste of money there.

A waste that the current education of society (+ freedom) equals irresponsible behaviour. Without a unified effort this world won't become better but the biggest obstacle for humans to be something more is humans themselves. It's disgusting how this race has devolved recently and even if the beginning of the 20th century wasn't ideal (racism anyone ?) man was better at coping with the harsh reality of the world, now it looks like most of us don't know what's really important, don't have to face enough of real problems (war, hunger), we forget how real life looks like for others and we don't know what we should do. Life wasn't about selfish entertainment, worthless celebrities didn't exist and not everything was about the money (also there was less of those insane people around which is probably just a strange coincidance and not a result, right ?). Maybe it's progress and I'm just not seeing the beauty in all those deaths, suffering etc. I mean withholding medical advancements, blocking other energy sources and selling your organs is the only possible way, and who cares about all of that when we need to get excited about the next iPhone.

Do I really want to donate money to a perfect stranger to buy high-quality explosives? I think not.

ralphtweety says:

I also was impressed with the tank dunking of the Mac Pro.

Rancid88 says:

I love a good explosion just like every one else, don't need to pretend I'm above this type of entertainment, and for those of you who think this guy is extremely low brow, feel free to mix your own PBX and let me know how it worked out....

SockRolid says:

More fun that BlendTec's "Will it Blend?" videos.
You know, when they blend the latest iPhone (on release day) into gray powder.

The ultimate anti-theft mechanism: Frag My Mac.

RavenSword says:

I think we're ignoring the bigger fact that the Mac Pro survived being dunked in a tank of water! :O

Peter000 says:

Yeah, total waste of a great machine.

That being said, I liked the primacord fuse in the shape of the Apple logo.

Illustrator Joe says:

You guys are buncha whiners.


emjayess says:

No, whining is hardly the word. Legitimate commentary about the stupidity and wastefulness of these people. Indicative of a cultural problem in the US, but not surprising.

emjayess says:

Any relation to Bazooka Joe?--you're almost as funny.

felface says:

Yes this is a huge waste but it's done now and he made a cool video and got lots of views
