I don't know. These articles don't tell us enough about anything really. We have canisters of acetone on our property, that's extremely flammable...but we're not using it to make bombs.

I've got a lot of nails because I do a lot of woodwork, but I'm not using it to make bombs.

When I was a kid I was drawing my own comic books, with heroes and villains and guns and tanks and explosions. But I'm not putting that part of my imagination to action.

It's all people getting scared over silly stuff, really. It's kind of embarrassing actually.

Who wants to bet they found [redacted]? (On second thought I didn't want to be accused of posting bomb-making instructions on the web. They're two common household items that 90% of you have right now.)

Quote:
Police Chief Pat Moran stressed Tuesday night no threats were made by the student and there was no indication there was any danger posed to anyone or property at the school.

“There was no indication he was making a bomb, or using a bomb or detonating a bomb,” he said.

...but we're gonna go ahead and make sure he gets a record to follow him around anyway. Way to keep the world safe, Chief.

A subsequent search of the boy’s home led to his arrest because they found several electronic parts and chemicals.

He cooperated fully with authorities [...]

Moran said the family and the student cooperated with the department during the investigation.

Be polite, but know your rights. Realize that if they're investigating you then they aren't your friend. No warrant, no probable cause, no search.

But she [the boy's mother] understands authorities' concern in the wake of the mass shooting in Newtown, Conn.

"I think they did what they had to do, they were trained and you can't be too careful," she added.

Mom is part of the problem.

a buddy of mine is a chemist and does forensics for a living - his comment on the story is "The funny part is that it would be difficult to NOT be in possession of things that would help make a good peroxide based explosive, oh, and none of them can be kept off planes, either, even if liquid is limited. I write this one off as an overdose of the placebo that is public safety."

Oh boy... Bored do I ever agree with you.

Way back in 92/93, or when ever the first Gulf War happened I was in second grade. I being a little more mature for my age was reading up on the weapons of the war... I had a subscription to some magazine that kept people up to date on the tech being used. Did I ask for it? No my god father got it for me because at he time he was deployed on the USS Vincennes. I found the technology behind it all amazing and was captivated by it all....... Then I got called to the school psych. I plain as day explained to him I was reading this because it was interesting not because I wanted to harm any one..... guy just took my magazine and sent me back to class.

Now I probably would of been arrested and sent to a psyche ward.

At my high school, I literally blew a jet engine up in the parking lot.

Literally. Exploded. Literally.

That was just 10 years ago... It's quite a fast downward slope that we're on.

we are very careful to keep these sorts of things outside of the public eye for this very reason. All the same, the workshop has a reputation around the campus. Might just be all those times we go in through the window cuz the stairs are blocked with some piece of heavy machinery....
