How hard could it be? Isn’t it made out of hydrogen? Just sneak up behind it one night with one of those butane lighters like you light the grill with, and kablooey.

We FReepers will all find out pretty soon. I have it on good authority that NSA is going through forums in alphabetical order, and they’re still on Drudge...

Nah, it’s not so bad if you go Greyhound.

But you have to change buses at Venus AND Mercury, and the A/C is *always* broken in that waiting room on Mercury.

Let’s not be so quick to take action. Be kind of neat to see how he’s going to blow up the sun.

Poor bastard is clearly crazy. That’s not to say he isn’t a threat but he deserves pity as well as incarceration.

Man accused of threatening to kill U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, father

Federal authorities say Nick Gates, who also goes by the name Abolfanzi Akbori, faces a felony
charge for making a terroristic threat.......

Upon further investigation, FBI agents in Austin learned that agents in Houston were investigating
Gates for “threatening the life of a Houston based FBI agent.”........

Gates told authorities “due to government misconduct, the sun would blow up” and he might be able
to prevent that from happening if he was given the money., according to court documents.,......

Court documents state Gates had a previous felony conviction for attempted retaliation after
he threatened a Houston police officer that arrested him for drunk driving. ....

end snips

Unless he really wants to kill and burn Cruz and his father and just added the “blow up the sun” bit...at the last minute...to INSURE an insanity defense should he be caught.

It’s possible I suppose but if so, he’s about to find out how very rarely insanity defenses actually work.
