    How about a Liquified Natural Gas Tanker? Do it out at sea, of course, but with plenty of monitoring to establish the blast radius, force of the shockwave, extent of the fireball, etc. I'll bet once people see that, all LNG will have to be off-loaded at sea or in very remote locations, and none of the tankers would be allowed near populated areas until they are emptied and their tanks are purged.

    Are you talking about actually physically blowing things up, or are simulations allowed? For instance, I'd be interested in seeing an implosion demolition of the Eiffel Tower, but you obviously can't do it for real.
