Gunpowder (also jokingly known through horrible chemistry jokes as "Gun Control") is a powder mix made by taking flammable rocks and crushing them with a beater. The gunpowder is then placed within the firing arm(s) of choice; then things go boom-boom!
Origin of Gunpowder
The origin of gunpowder, or anciently known as boom dust, is a not entirely certain. This lethal powder that makes Michael Bay films what they are could be credited as far back as the BC. It's possible, because if cavemen discovered fire, what prevents them from discovering gunpowder?
However, like most discoveries, gunpowder originality is strongly accepted as a result of an accident. One theory suggests that gunpowder was first introduced into mankind history when a Stone Age stoner accidentally combined the ingredients to this explosion causing dust during an attempt to form the first cocaine supplement.
As early as the mid-first century AD, the Chinese were already using saltpeter and sulfur in order to make certain medicines and drugs. In ancient texts, it has been confirmed that the Chinese were playing with fire and maliciously purifying saltpeter. In order to make even more drugs, in which the Chinese would deal.
In the early 9th century AD, Taoist monks and scientists accidentally made the first batch of Chinese boom mix after crushing random shit together in order to make an "elixir for immortality". Instantly, the crazy Chinese monks and scientists started inserted these into their tools of war. Explosions happened shortly after.
In India, the earliest known usage of gunpowder was probably between the 1300s and the 2000s. Because, logic. The first documented murder (out of all the murders in India) was in 1400 AD when Anad Ghandak shot down a school teacher, Ir Lozhik. This was one of the first school shootings, and probably the oldest in India.
Since then, most school shootings weren't really done with guns, gunpowder supplies were barely obtainable in India; thus the usage of poison darts boomed in India.
When the Arabs got control of gunpowder and used it to make fire arms, things got out of hand. Muslims soon would start using gunpowder to make explosives in around 1500ish and started Terrorism. George W. Bush started the United States' effort to stop this with the War on Terrorism.
One dominant force in the Asian civilizations that used gunpowder was none other than the Japanese samurais. Even though this sounds bad, it isn't. Guns helped stopped the samurais from living. Even though samurai daimyos in the 1500s and 1600s such as Date Masamune used matchlocks, it didn't really stop anything.
Other places ended up using gunpowder and guns in combat, also. You can say almost every single country uses and/or used gunpowder in their guns and stuff. A few other examples of gunpowder can be found in the Civil War. They used gunpowder in their cannons and guns in that point of American history.
