Flragnararch: Sunny has obviously never had 18 year old boys
show me: I first read that as IUD. That would have been strange as well.
Skail: With a helpful picture of what a bomb, but not the bomb in question, might look like.
Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Three more.
sethen320: Great. Now everytime a teenager decides to blow up random shiat in the woods with old firecrackers and whatnot we're goung to immediately call it an IED and try to put it in the same class as roadside bombers, terrorists, etc...I'm tired of that term. Its being overused.
Ego edo infantia cattus: To tell you the truth, I'm on the fence about this one. Having been an eighteen year old, I know how fun blowing shiat up is. On the other hand, you can never tell which kid is going to go nuts and try to kill a bunch of people. I never really made a "bomb" but I Loved illegal fireworks, and knew people who blew up trees and cars in the woods for fun. ...And that's the thing, it is fun, the best kind of fun, the kind that kids aren't allowed to have anymore: dangerous fun. I find it suspicious that the picture of the "IED" was replaced with a Wile E Coyote time bomb. I'd understand if it was a pipe bomb, or a stick of dynamite wrapped with nails, but I'm guessing it's more like a home made cherry bomb. FTA: ...authorities say. "It was something that wasn't big, but could cause serious injuries and the death of someone,"Well, I guess that rules out a black cat, but nothing much larger. I bet the judge will throw the book at him just to be on the safe side.
quansem: They would have put us away a long time ago if they had known about some of our 80's teenage explosive exploits. Home-made bottle rockets with nose cone warhead (with accompanying double-barrelled, shoulder-mounted, electrically-fired rocket gun), cherry bombs, frag grenades, etc. We even had access to our own supply of home made black powder (the drug store owner thought nothing of selling us a huge supply of Potassium Nitrate). Running from the RCMP on Halloween night was a right of passage. We would tell our parents that it was for SCIENCE (which, in a roundabout way, it was)./No, you may not short-cut across my yard.//eyebrows and Cabbage Patch Kids were the only victims
cwheelie: Back in my day we jumped of railroad bridges with a knife in one hand and a gun in the other while the bottle rockets attached to our belts went off. Never could achieve the necessary thrust to remain aloft. But at least when we hit the water we had the knife to fight off the alligators..... Kids are a buncha pantywaists these days...

maddogdelta: [img2-cdn.newser.com image 300x200]What an IED may look like.
Rezurok: Oh no, a kid playing with small explosives, the horror! It's nice that they call it an IED and not a homemade m-80 or anything, cause we all know that teens have no interest in small explosions just for fun and are perfectly happy to leave fireworks to the professionals. He must have been plotting something terrible!/almost blew myself up on more than one occasion//still have all 6 fingers
No Such Agency: Skail:With a helpful picture of what a bomb, but not the bomb in question, might look like.I think this was the actual bomb:[img457.imageshack.us image 400x300]"IED"s are like UFOs. If it's unexplained, and flying, it's a UFO. If it's improvised, and it explodes, it's an IED. By definition. Duh.... are we sure it wasn't just a Fleshlight?
