NicoFinn: Firecrackers. America is running scared.


THIS

When I was a kid in the 1970's I brought some toy snappers to school.  They're little poppers with a string on each end that when pulled make a popping sound (see picture below).  A bully snatched them out of my hand and later popped one in the cafeteria at lunch.  He got caught and immediately claimed I gave them to him.  I told the truth, that I brought them to school and they were taken from me.  But that I did not willingly give them out.

I was taken to the school administrators office.  He wrote up a charge that I distributed "small explosive devices" and distributed "booby traps".  He told me that if I signed the document, I would not be suspended.  So I signed the document and with a smile on his face he said "good luck ever getting a decent job with this on your record".  He actually enjoyed farking over my future over nothing.  That day I learned a lot about people, especially about people who are supposed to look out for your well being.

Note: This is also the same school where the guidance counselor told me that pursuing an engineering degree was a mistake, that there were too many engineers and I'd never find a job.  I never returned to his office ever again.  At 17 years old, I lost all confidence in his judgement.

The joke was on him, not one single employer has ever given a rats ass about my time in that school, a school which now no longer exists.

Officials in southern Minnesota are asking the public's help in figuring out why three homemade explosive devices - one of which was found inside a stuffed animal - were discovered on an elementary school playground this week.

Uh... some kids were blowing shiat up with firecrackers?  What do I win?

This sort of thing wouldn't happen if kids were allowed to carry guns.

But that's the joke school admins dont want you in on. The fact that they are as impotent as a 90 year old man on a cocain bender. Any and all threats they level are just hot air.

The Waseca Police Department says it got a call Monday from staff at the Hartley Elementary School, where two "very small" explosive devices were found on the school's south playground. On Friday, staff discovered an additional explosive device on the same playground, and this one was inside a stuffed animal.
All of the devices required being exposed to an open flame in order to detonate, police said, running around and giggling while gathering additional things to try exploding.  "Whoo hoo!" stated Police Lieutenant Ron Jeffries, as the stuffed animal's head blew off, landing on top of a nearby parked car.  Other officers were seen gathering army men and a plastic My Little Pony lunch box.

It's probably been said already and I'm not saying it hasn't, but I'll say it in pictures.

The only thing stopping a bad guy with a firecracker is a good guy with a cigarette lighter. Or something like that.

Also, police said these devices might only have been discovered now because of recent rains and melting snow.


Sounds like they were soaking wet homemade firecrackers. Didn't they cease being explosive devices once they became sodden with water?

That's what I thought. Seems like they're trying to trump up some fear by implying they were IEDs instead of fireworks.
