Sorry, but as someone who's been reading the what-if section since it started a few months ago, I don't really see a conspiracy here. Randall doesn't make up his own questions; he takes questions from readers and answers them. Besides, he's described himself as someone who likes watching things catch fire and explode, so this is the kind of topic he normally deals with.

We used to make those. We would use hairspray to make "rifles".
We made several, eventually making a canon. We used cast iron pipe welded together, and welded to a trailer. For the propellant we used nitrous oxide. Quite the explosion. For the projectile we used a bowling ball.
No2 is not flammable, was it Maybe ascedaline? Nitrous oxide does not make a car faster by burning it works by making the fuel air mixture cold so it burns faster . so you may be confused ...just saying
