I was playing a table-top rpg with a friend. It was set... well it was pretty weird, so I won't get into it. Suffice it to say the bad guy had a stick of dynamite and we were on a volcano. I hit the dynamite with my slingshot, knocking it into the lava directly behind the villain. My DM said the dynamite melts away. I said it should have blown him up. Needless to say, as a couple nerds (we were, after all, playing a fantasy game and then arguing about the physics of it) we were pretty upset with each other.
What would have happened in this... totally realistic scenario? Would the stick of dynamite exploded? Or simply melt away?
