Gunpowder originated in China where someone accidentally mixed three kitchen ingredients (KNO3, sulfur and charcoal) which when heated the black powder burned with a loud bang. Scientists began to better this powder which they put in a bamboo shoot and threw in a fire. When the powder heated up the gas it produced built up in the tube and blew it up with a loud bang. Chinese used the powder to create explosive arrows, they put bamboo shafts with the powder in it on the end of regular arrows, and cannons that shot rats at oncoming enemies, which spooked the soldiers and the horses. The ratio used for the powder then and now is: 75% KNO3, 15% Charcoal, 10% Sulfur.

Both the Boston Marathon Bombers and the Weatherman Underground have similarities and differences. One of the most obvious similarities is that they are both responsible for terrorist acts. Both the Boston Marathon Bombers and the Weatherman Underground have set off bombs in their attacks, and both have killed.

Fire appears to mean various things at various moments in Fahrenheit 451. Beatty and his fire fighter buddies use it to annihilate. However, the lady whose house they blaze translates it another way: "Play the man, Master Ridley; we might this sunshine such a flame, by God 's beauty, in England, as I trust should never be put out." For her, it speaks to quality.
