Probably not related, but I did see something this week on Wilkow about all the dry runs pilots and passengers are reporting on their flights of late...

Dry ice bomb is the instrument of choice for a prankster.  Cheap, easy to make, and they make a big boom.

When I was a kid, a friend and I put about 20 all over a park and waited in the woods for them to go boom.  From lots of practice, we actually knew how to make them go off after a specific amount of time by adding certain amounts of water to the bottle.  Needless to say the cops came out and we took off running.  Thank God they never found out it was us.

So.  Long story short--this is a prank?  Should post be removed?

Careful there.  The NSA may be informing your local constabulary as we post.  Be wary of any knocks on the door in the next few weeks!

I think the statute of limitations ran out at least 15 years ago.  :tongue2:

No reason to remove it.  It is news.

Don't you have to go rant about Ted Cruz or Sarah Palin?

Until now.

"Think" or "know"?

My guess is the NSA is updating its file on you even as we speak (well, I guess I mean type, but you get the idea).
