SNIPPET: “...ignited a quart-size container with an explosive material called Tannerite...”
SNIPPET: “Pieces of his clothing were found 10 to 15 feet away, and pieces of the device were found 30 feet away.”
Learning curve — Darwin Award Winner.
Tannerite detonates by high impact. Must have hit it with a hammer or something .
Well, he probably won’t be messing with that stuff again.
He is most likely an Obama voter with just a little hobby.
A quick search on Tannerite shows it to be commonly used for targets by shooting clubs. It can be mixed out of commonly available items or purchased online in prepackaged products.
Mixing it or creating a bomb is of course illegal. This stuff is hard to detonate so he probably had a fuse problem.
If Mr. Brice watched YouTube videos on the explosive; maybe he would have decided against experimenting with it.
Tannerite vs a geo metro
Idiots are one thing we have plenty of.
I'll take that bet!
To quote Adam and Jamie: “Don’t try this at home. We’re what you call experts.”
We’s experts, too. We tried this at home!
I have to admit, that one gave me a chuckle. I just got the mental picture of someone with a shocked look on his face. “My explosives exploded! How could this happen?!?”
I bet you he was listening to Shawn Limbaugh Beck with his car up on cinderblocks in his driveway when this happened also. Typical right winger ;).
On January 14th 2008, a man in Red Wing, Minnesota was accused of detonating 100 lb (45 kg). of Tannerite inside the bed of a dump truck by shooting it with a .50 caliber rifle from 300 yards (270 m) away. The ensuing blast could be felt at Prairie Island Nuclear Power Plant, and officials from the FBI, BATF, Nuclear Regulatory Commission, US Postal Service, and the US Coast Guard became involved, along with local law enforcement agencies.
The man, Brian Wesley Childs, was arrested for gross disregard for human life and destruction of property with an explosive or incendiary. Childs has since pleaded guilty to detonating an explosive device and unlawful possession of components for explosives, for which he was fined $2,583 and sentenced to three years’ probation; the charge of disregard for human life was dismissed.
Sir, a good eod pic is truly needed fer this one...
