I am really sad he was hurt that bad, but that was seriously dumb, just plain stupid. And if it had worked, what was he going to do with a 'real' grenade.

This makes it sound like anyone can buy an inert grenade at army surplus and make it work. Not so, because it involves a lot more than just pouring in some black powder. The injuries he sustained were comparable to holding a firecracker in your hands.
