Wellllll. not so sure about that. I over heard a conversation between a mother and daughter the other day. The mom gave her daughter (looked like she was in her 20's) a few boxes of contacts. The daughter asked the mom which were for the right/left. The mom said that the right had a "R" on them. Daughter then asked which were for the left. The look on moms face was priceless. I had to bite my tongue. No light went on in the daughters head. It sounded like a serious question. Mom was dumbfound. She said the ones with out the mark were for the left. Special needs is one thing. Stupid is something else

Now I'll be the first to admit that I have asked dumb questions like that BUT I realize that they are dumb as soon as they leave my mouth and acknowledge them. I ask a guy at the condiment counter in a theater how much the FREE popcorn refill was. The second it left my mouth I realized what I said and asked him to forget the conversation and moved on.

This guy is an idiot. I'm glad he did not injure anyone else. Someone who thinks screwing around with 3lbs of explosives is a good idea at the very least needs to be taken out of the breeding pool. Probably would not be a bad idea to make sure he is supervised at all times and to make sure the worst he does in the future is sit in a corner and eat paste.

I ordered a couple of tannerite kits some years ago and the boy and I made up some little bundles wrapped in orange duct tape and took them out and shot at them. Great fun from about 50 yards away and properly backstopped. That guy's a douche.

Note to others: Don't blow up stuff that creates large shrapnel, especially if you're too close to the explosion.

Now, these dudes seemed to have done it right:

Done what right? Looks like a serious case of 'needs to get a life' going on there.

Oh yeah, let's splash a bunch of steel and plastic debris all over the back country cause it would be so cool and stuff.

meaning that they blew something up without losing body parts. I didn't say what they did was a good idea. Big mess

I particularly enjoyed how he kept closing in on the explosives after each burst of gunfire.

He wasn't punning, the footage was blown away and now we can't prove this wasn't faked by some leftist. He still has his right one

They were smart enough to follow the precautions I'll give 'em that.
