Police find C4 explosives in lower Manhattan cemetary
Daily News ^ | 10/11/10

Several blocks of the deadly C-4 explosive were found Monday morning in a Lower East Side cemetery, police sources said.

There was no cap or detonating device with the blocks, meaning they could not have exploded.

"But it's still C-4, so it's being taken very seriously," a police source said.

C-4
That stuff was great for heating C-Rats, or boiling water.

They already know it’s C4? Or, was it wrapped like C4 and they are testing?

A bomb tech who knows his stuff can tell by a sniff if its C4 or not. This was a drop off I bet, we have two cemeteries that our personal property surrounds at home. We found a $50 bill one time under a rock next to a tombstone after we saw a lot of traffic coming and going through there a few years ago.

Based on a cursory examination of the skeletal remains we have concluded the subject was a left handed male, who during his lifetime had a serious addiction to internet porn.

they should have kept quiet and watched and waited for the pickup guy. this is obviously a transfer. teh pickup guy would pick it up and leave behind soem cash, or mayeb teh cash had already been paid.

would have been nice to catch the guy. now he can do it agin somewhere else.

Nope. The super-secret leaders of the tea party have sent out the word to their mindless followers: blow up as many graveyards as you can to prevent the dead buried there from voting this November; if you can’t blow them up, then steal the corpses and hold them hostage until after the election.

Yeah but when you had to move out you'd better take a breath and gently blow the small blue flame out rather than stomp on it with your foot or KA-BOOM! I ran a demo range once and discovered all of that neat stuff from the NCO's that helped.

A caretaker digging holes for planting trees digs up a garbage bag with something in it and sets it by a tree. It stays there for 15-16 months and another person finds the bag yesterday and reports it this morning.

Let me ask this, if you are digging a hole to plant a tree and you dig up a plastic bag with someting in it, would you not be curious about what you dig up?

The typical C4 demo block is roughly 2 inches by 2 inches by 18 inches long. A half block can blow a 2-1/2 ton truck into the air a pretty good distance. C4 is much more powerful than dynamite and, because it can be molded like modeling clay, can be formed around the target.

To answer the original question — a C4 block (or half block) could turn the average car into scrap metal very effectively.

A caretaker came across it a year ago and set aside by a tree where it has been this whole time.

What did I ask?
I was hopeful there would be forensic advantage to the find that would finger an old terrorist...or two
Great answer though...

I too, being Amish, have stipulated in my will, that I must be buried with 4 blocks of C4.

It will come in handy when the brothers try to steal my 72 Virgins.

D Rats were a 'chocolate' bar (and I use the term loosely) with all of the gastronomic appeal of a slab of congealed wallpaper paste.

But yes, I understood your meaning.
