Warning about homemade bombs

Pass this on to everybody you know. Anybody that sees a plastic bottle in their yard would think nothing of picking it up to throw it away. Looks like these things are starting to pop up around the U.S.
Check the Snopes web site below, it's pretty scary.
All it takes is:

1. A plastic bottle with a cap (Like a normal water bottle).
2. A little Drano.
3. A little water.
4. A small piece of foil.
5. Disturb it by moving it; and BOOM (Less than 30 seconds)!!
6. No fingers left and other serious effects to your face, eyes, etc.


People are finding these bombs in mailboxes and in their yards, just waiting for someone to pick it up intending to put it in the trash. It takes about 30 seconds to blow after you move the thing.

See "SNOPES" below....it's true.

SEE VIDEO ON SNOPES TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS TO THE BOTTLE, THIS WOULD HAPPEN TO YOU IF YOU TOUCHED IT..........

Thanks, Tom. I had heard of this before (although I haven't heard of it actually happening to anybody) and this one Okie boy I know as well as I know myself (hint, hint) put it to the test in a controlled manner a couple of weeks ago.
It ain't no shit. It works. Take my word for it. Don't try it yourself. I didn't publish the ratios for a reason.
Be careful when you pick shit up.
