2 Bayonne men taken into custody after homemade explosives go off on fire escape, report says
Jersey Journal ^

Posted on 04/21/2013 7:27:19 AM PDT by SMGFan

Two men told police they were experimenting with making explosives after watching a how-to on YouTube when their attempt exploded on a Bayonne fire escape yesterday afternoon, WPIX reported last night. Christopher Ziobro, 21, and Ghaias Mirza, 18, were being questioned in the 33rd Street incident in which no one was injured, the television report said.

A man who lives in the apartment directly below told the station there were two loud blasts and milk containers were involved.

Obviously they aren’t very adept.

The fact that the ‘remains’ weren’t swept up into a dustpan proves that point..

Like the cartoon at the ‘Terrorist School’, with the instructor with a ‘bomb’ strapped to his chest, him holding a detonator and saying
“Watch closely, I am only going to do this once”.

Hey, when I was young, we blew up milk jugs all the time with dry ice. I’m wondering if they were doing that.

The other type of milk jug bomb, that I can remember, was the calcium chloride & water bomb. Harmless, but could be flammable.

People get too worked up over that stuff, now. Thanks muzzies!

Cheers

A much safer method is a 2 liter soda container and some dry ice left over from an Omaha Steak order. No caustic ingredients and louder than you can imagine.

Could be an example of Hanlon’s Razor- Never ascribe to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity. It’s possible they were amusing themselves with simple dry ice bombs which make loud noises but are relatively harmless....

Uzbek: mirzo, Russian: мурза, Circassian: мырзэ), (common variance in Tatar nobility as Morza) is of Persian origin, denoting the rank of a high nobleman or Prince.[1] It is usually translated into English as a royal or imperial Prince of the Blood.

Do you mean calcium carbide, which forms acetylene when mixed with water?

A person can also get considerable innocent amusement out of filling balloons with oxyacetylene mixture from a welding torch (unlit), then putting the balloons in a paper bag and lighting the bag. Lots of noise, but no shrapnel aside from fragments of paper and rubber.

Or so I’m told.

His name indicates his parents were not Muslim. It does not mean that he cannot be a convert to Islam.

you take anything, even a lady finger sized firecracker, and put it under an empty tincan and when it goes off the can will ring ~ making it all sound much louder than it really was.

We had a kid walking down the street out front once when a very loud 12 gauge shotgun boom went off.

I called the cops ~ they came ~ caught the kid and said 'not to worry, just m-4s' ~ that's worth about 1/4 stick of dynamite.

They took him to jail!

Years later one of his little buddies, now a convicted interstate auto thief, said 'oh, yeah, I remember that ~ stuck the shotgun in the backseat of my dad's car ~ big shotgun ~ then showed the cops the firecracker'

All of that is in line with Sigmund Freud's statement to the effect that 'sometimes madame a cigar is just a cigar'.

Yeah, I corrected that in another comment. Problem was, too many people commented ahead of me before I could hit the “post” button with the correction, so it’s farther down in the comments.

The oxyacetylene trick sounds like fun! I’m gonna’ hafta’ give that one a try!

Cheers!

2 liter dry ice bombs sound like dynamite. I sank one in a 30 lb tub of water (to muffle sound) and it blew the tub apart.

Sometimes acetylene in a balloon will go off just by static electricity. Not smart to play with that stuff. It doesn’t take much to lose eyes, eardrums or fingers. I have a big tank of acet and it is used for welding, heating and cutting only.

The Works and foil is a very bad idea. So you get a bang. It sprays Hydrochloric acid all over. Breathe the fumes/vapor and you won’t like the result. It will eat up whatever it lands on.

There should be a corollary to that. Never ascribe good intentions to muslims if an evil intent could also be involved.
