Florida Institute of Technology must be a lousy tech school if their students need Mythbusters to teach them how easy it is to build a homemade bomb.

Oh, boy.

Here we go....

cue perpetrator's parents suing the school, discovery channel, mythbusters etc for causing their child to build a bomb.

timswar: Florida Institute of Technology must be a lousy tech school if their students need Mythbusters to teach them how easy it is to build a homemade bomb.


came here to say exactly that. No School ending in "IT" should even ADMIT a kid who can't make a respectable explosive in 15 min with nothing more than the contents of a common kitchen sink cabinet. Jesus, what's happened to our country's standards anyway?
 
2012-11-26 11:13:19 AM
Quick... I better blame someone or they will blame me!


uhh .. The internets?

"What on the internets?"

Uhh .. Mythbusters.. Yeah! That was it.


/Total BS

Maybe his punishment could be the judge handing him over to the Mythbusters for the tirade that they will surely have ready when they hear about this moron. I would not want to be on the receiving end of either a pissed Jamie or Adam.

In fairness, they're not trying it at home, they're trying it at school.

I'm calling BS because whenever they make explosives on Mythbusters, they don't show the ingredients.

Jamie: We're what you call "experts".

OK, when I was a kid, we would go to a shopping plaza, in the hardware store, buy a pipe with 2 endcaps, then go 2 stores over to the gun shop and buy pyrodex and cannon fuse. And we were under 13

Nah. Metal heads generally gave up with the whole wanton destruction and church arson thing back in the 90's. Unless the youngsters are feeling left out and recreating our shenanigans from days of old.

The only thing he's guilty of is being stupid enough to do this in a stairwell.

My 7th grade Science book listed the ingredients for Black Powder. My dad had a jar of sulpher, charcoal is free and I went to the drug store and purchased a bottle of Salt Peter (potassium nitrate) for $1.50.

It took me a few tries to get the ratio correct, but I had fun. My dad walked in on me and asked what I was doing. He about flipped when I said "making Gunpowder". When he asked where I learned it, I told him I learned it from my Science book. He was so happy I was learning stuff in school he gave a a piece of Magnesium and told me to "take a file and add some magnesium filings" to my gunpowder to "see what happens".

Father/son bonding with my dad usually included things that went BOOM.

That nothing. My engineering college had a group into gunsmithing. I'm pretty sure a few full-auto weapons came out of the fabrication lab.

Wrong. This bomb has simple, easily-obtained ingredients and they listed them explicitly:

cdn.static.ovimg.com

(water + heat + pressure = kaboom)
 
2012-11-26 11:27:48 AM
I'm reminded of the Beavis and Butthead episode where they watch a History channel episode on Benjamin Franklin's kite experiment. When they get hurt replicating it, the media blames TV.

The point is: it's not the TV show that's the problem - it's the idiots.
 
2012-11-26 11:28:22 AM
I find it amusing that I hear about this on FARK rather than through the university alert system.

From the student sampling that I taught this term, some students were exceptionally bright and motivated. Others....I have no idea how they got into school.

Don't forget the Coffe Creamer explosion. They used powdered Coffee Creamer to mimic the explosions that can happen in Flour Mills or grain silos.

Airbourne coffee Creamer + ignition source = massive fireball.

I don't always "this", but when I do... this.
