"I" don't even know that we're harmless.

CardBoard is no material for a rocket.
Nor is candy a fuel.

Alcohols may make good fuel, ethanol, methanol and propan-2-ol (Isopropyl),are readily available.

You could always go an alternative route and make a bottle rocket. A 2L pop bottle and a nose cone and fins is all you need. As for the launcher, all you need is some PVC pipe, zip ties, and a bike pump. We did this in physics class, and those things went pretty freaking high (we launched them vertically). I actually sent my old cell phone up in my group's rocket, and captured some sweet footage of it parachuting down. The nose came off a little too early, so it didn't go as high as it could have, but it was cool.

But actual fuel looks a lot more fun and dangerous. Maybe at some point you could try using sheet metal instead of cardboard. It would definitely make it more reusable, since it wouldn't burn up like Rocket 00 did, although it would require a lot more thrust, and thus fuel.

That's what I'm wondering, if you could use a metal pipe or something...

...Then again, you'd pretty much have a Pipebomb at that point...

Coat the inside with engine paint. That'll work.

you could always attach cardboard triangles to yourself and jump off a building, then before you hit the ground you force yourself up and you launch into space

I am. When it wasn't super popular. When threads would last for days. When /b/ was good.

Moot took a pic of me at an anime convention we went to and was like, "Here, hold this blank piece of paper, I'm going to photoshop in some text," and I was like:

And he was like, "It is for this site called 4chan," and so I was like whatever and I let him take the pic then the next day I was up there on /b/ in this thread that stuck around for a few more days. Years later (last year) I messaged moot asking him if he had gone to that convention (because I was 99% sure it was him but I had some doubts) and he said he did in fact go to AWA back in 2005 so now I'm like convinced that it was him.
