It = the subject for an impersonal sentence?
or an object? an animal? a group of people? an event?
All three = people? objects? events? ideas?

Is "it" something, or is it just used as in "it is necessary..." or "it is raining" ?

Is explosives invovled? Noish Fire? Noish Was it confirmed, busted and plausible? Yes!!

**********SPOILER**********

MythBusters once tested the myth that bullets fired straight up in the air could fall back down with lethal force. After all their testing, they declared it busted, plausible, and confirmed. "Busted" because a bullet fired perfectly straight into the air would lose velocity coming down (because of air resistance) and not be lethal; "Plausible" because a shooter is more likely to fire at a slight angle, in which case the bullet would be lethal on its descent; and "Confirmed" because there have been confirmed accounts of bullets fired into the air which killed someone on the way down.

Nice job, Galfisk, for the near-solo solve.
