if people are making weapons of mass destruction, whether it be full-on bombs or just overpressure devices in soda bottles, it's going to be taken very seriously.

Time to ban soda bottles! These powerful pressurized plastic packages present a potently pure probability and precarious precipice pertaining to provoking people predisposed to performing potential practices of a preposterous and potentially prohibited nature.

Soda should come in bags.

As a lad who appreciated the destructive power of chemistry at an early age, this could have been me.

Fortunately I grew up in the 70s, well before we turned into a nation of mewling vaginas.

"Especially since 9/11, lawmakers got very serious with the way they wrote laws. And if people are making weapons of mass destruction, whether it be full-on bombs or just overpressure devices in soda bottles, it's going to be taken very seriously," Lexington Police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said.

Sigh.

Without knowing what exactly they put in the bottle it's hard to decide how I feel about this.  I mean, was this a harmless mentos and diet coke pressure thing, or was it made using caustic and poisonous household cleaners that, when sprayed all over the area after an explosion, could cause actual property damage and harm to animals that might ingest the residue/spray-off?

The charges seem a bit severe, but I'm guessing that since they're juveniles they'll plead them down to vandalism and criminal mischief as long as they don't already have records.  Before they do that though they'll play it up on the news for a while to discourage the behavior from other kids.

Just because this bomb didn't do any damage doesn't mean that the next group of kids won't try making a pipe bomb or something more dangerous 'as a joke'.  Teenagers aren't noted for being risk-averse or thinking about all of the externalities of their actions.

I feel sorry for the teens today. There was so much more my friends and I could get away with when we were growing up in the 1970's. I shutter to think of what would have sent me to jail as a felony now.

To the generation, I apologize for the nancy government officials that feel compelled to jail you for doing stupid stuff.

Geez... In the mid 90's a friend and I would light off magnesium strips in the middle of the road and run like hell. The swerving, mad braking and general mayhem were priceless. Luckily this was on a lightly traveled suburban road or we probably would have killed someone.

Kids these days ...

That is what I was thinking.  The mentos and diet coke thing is pretty neat and the possible injury that may occur might be the lid blowing off but other than the coke and mentos being spewed all over the place and the homeowner has a mess to clean up that shouldn't be considered a WMD.

What was the thing last year with kids mixing chemicals and using tinfoil to start a violent reaction?  Now that one looks like it could cause harm especially if it goes off with the little perps...uh I mean precious gifts from God standing to close.

Dry ice wouldn't result in "chemical spray", so assuming that part of the story is accurate, I'm guessing Drano and wadded up aluminum foil. We used to make cool hydrogen balloons with that stuff back in the day. Now we'd probably get arrested for possession explosive material.

I feel like taking a baseball bat to the prosecutor and beating him severely around the rib cage and knees, then propping him up next to a chalkboard and making him write one thousand times "A soda bottle bomb is NOT a weapon of mass destruction"

At this rate the entire population of the country will be felons by 2020

AFAIK we were never free to set off chemical explosions on neighbor's doorsteps.

If the kids wanted to do this in their own backyard no one would have known (other than perhaps their parents) and the police wouldn't have become involved.

My mailman got blinded by a drano bomb that was put in a rubber mailbox the bottle went off but no signs from the outside when he opens it got a face full of nasty was in the days before cell phones and out in the country took him over an hour to find help

When I was in high school I knew someone who dropped a pipebomb through a neighbors mailslot, fortunately it went off before anyone in the home got to the door but it could have hurt someone, instead it just broke some window glass and peppered the walls with bits of pipe.

Knew another kid who build a pipebomb in an old fire extinguisher, then he realized that there was no way in hell to set this thing off safely anywhere near town.  He ended up going way out and lit the fuse while sitting on the back of a dirtbike, which his friend put in gear the second the fuse was lit.  I later saw the hole and it was pretty impressive, and the kid ended up blowing things up for the Army.

Teenagers do some really stupid things, my guess is this is a mentos and diet coke "bomb" or something similar, a bang and a bit of mess.  But I agree it could be something caustic - "hey lets spray drain cleaner onto that guy who told on us to our parents" - in which case there need some more serious charges, but this WMD stuff seems out of line unless they made something like a poison gas.

In my day we knew how to make things blow up.  And we did very carefully.  Thanks to great chemistry teachers who like blowing up things as much as we did.

However, I got caught with some pipe bombs by a cop, and he brought me to a hospital and showed me amputees, then brought me home and explained to my parents.  And my dad who never touched me, whipped the ever living shiat out of me.  It worked.

Today if a cop did that to a kid then he would be sued, and the kid would call child protective services on the parents.

So unless you want to pat them on the wrist fine, but they finally blow up something or someone do not go saying "where did we go wrong"
