This is the Raytheon company's high-precision GPS-guided artillery shell, Excalibur. How does Raytheon test this explosive? By blowing up cars.

Now, before I go on, I should say that I am a California-born, hippy-dippy, war-hating, peace-loving lefty. I don't even like the idea of people practicing with weapons designs to kill other people.

But there is something about these explosives utterly incinerating rusty old cars in the middle of the desert with extreme precision that I just can't take my eyes off of. Cars and explosions, man. There's something about them.
