Plastic Bottle Bombs - Be Careful!

June 29th, 2010

WHAAAT!?!? Not even WIH Wednesday, and I'm posting? Yep, it's true. But there's a good reason. We gotta protect our `ohana and everyone around us (see below)!

Got this one in a forward before but didn't have time to post it. Just got it again today and thought I'd bettah do my part to try to warn y'all. So here's my little PSA to you guys. Be careful out there kay?

---

THIS IS NOT A JOKE! DO NOT PICKUP STRAY BOTTLES IN YOUR YARD OR AT ROADSIDE. THESE MAY BE BOMBS! SEE VIDEO and VERIFY INFO ON SNOPES.COM.

Innocent looking bottle. Deadly bomb!

This is true. It's serious... and Snopes just released an alert.

1. A plastic bottle and cap.
[ingredients removed]
5. Pick it up. Move it. Shake it and it goes BOOM!!
6. No fingers left and other serious effects to your face, eyes, etc..

People are finding these bombs in mailboxes and in their yards. They're waiting for you to pick them up. You'll never make it! Grab them and they take only 30 seconds to blow!

Have a Good (and SAFE!) Tuesday gang!

P.S. In case you missed it, here's last week's post: Where In Hawaii Is Edward Sugimoto - June 23, 2010.

    More Nut Cases to worry about. Wonder how many killed themselves by blowing themselves up making these? Doesn't help when the internet shows you how to build these weapons. grrr :x


  2. M:

    Howzit Ed!

    I heard or read this before somewhere. Be careful out there! There are a lot of sick crazy people out there. :x


  3. Rosette:

    I wonder if they can add something to Drano that it will stay neutral when mix with foil....so if the two product combine it wont explode.


  4. Rosette:

    so if you do pick it up you throw it far away ...... thirty second....!


  5. Rosette:

    so do you know how to shoot arrow poke a hole in the bottle... I wonder if it would still explode.....omg...you have to carry a truck load of fire truck so the fume would kill you...!


  6. Chicken Grease:

    Thanks for this information, Ed. Sheesh, and I was just cleaning the yard the other day. I probably woulda' picked this thing up, grumble "da$n kids," hold the thing at stomach/waist level on my way to throwing it into the bin (what would it be, folks? The blue or grey one? Heh, how 'Matrix' local trash philosophy has become, no?) . . . and boom! CG's midsection imasen.

    If I lived, well, I'd have to somehow find a way to put together "Frank Castle" and "of the islands" together to describe myself thereafter ;) .


  7. snow:

  8. Marvin:
