Bomb

I've seen fireworks that were more of a "bomb" than that

You didn't see the Zerg-like swarm of scantily clad women that crushed dozens of people to death as they overwhelmed the school.

Axe should be considered a weapon of mass destruction.

Jesus, no kiddding.  They should be charged with planning to release a weapon of ass-smelling destruction.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Check the honors programs. It is a little beyond most public school kids


I would think most kids would know pressurized canisters can explode when exposed to extreme heat. In fact, it says so right on the can. Some bored 13 year old was probably reading his can of Axe while taking a dump.

We all do that, don't we?

"Whelp, this is taking a little longer than expected. No periodicals in sight... I wonder what this CVS brand daily moisture lotion is made out of, water, mineral oil, glycerin, caprylic / capric trigliceride ok what the f*ck is that, dammit the computer is out THERE, hurry up dump. stearic acid wtf again I'm going to remember these words and google them just as soon as I'm out of here. *wipe wipe* *flush* *wait* *flush again* *carefully send more water in to a mark a new high tide* PSHEW GLUG GLUG *flush remnants* "

And as soon as you set foot outside the door you forget every ingredient you ever read. Seemed pressing at the time, under the circumstances, I suppose.

The alleged vandals

That's not vandalism, that's chemical warfare.


Images of the kids are not being publicly released because of their ages. Instead, police are hoping to track down an adult who can identify them.

What's the point of the cameras then? And how can the cameras tell how old they are?

These are young kids in Alaska. There is a good chance they don't have smart phones.

Those punks should blow up whoever is making those terrible old spice commercials.

if its wrong to make a bomb out of a backpack, two bottles of Axe body spray and a can of Old Spice, than i dont wanna be right.

2014-08-03 02:49:58 AM  
I'm actually kind of impressed. Most of the children I know between those ages can't even make kool-aid, let alone a bomb.
 
2014-08-03 02:57:45 AM  
All I did between ages 10 and 13 was blow shiat up. I can't imagine being a kid in today's zero tolerance police state. boring as shiat.
 
2014-08-03 02:58:47 AM  
Lulz. Good for them. When I was 13, my buddies and I were making stuff we found in the Anarchist's Cookbook. Good times.

/a 25 pound smoke 'bomb' lit in the middle of the street is good times. That thing burned for a good while.

An Axe bomb is the first shot in the Guidocalypse.
 
2014-08-03 03:04:12 AM  
Wow, kids figured out that alcohol laden stuff burns. I'd say kudos to the kids if they actually got it to explode without one of them getting seriously burned. If they simply poured the stuff on the backpack and lit it on fire, then fark every adult in this situation who suggested it was a "bomb".

My buddies and I were on the 2 Step program.

Step 1) Figure out how to blow stuff up
Step 2) Figure out how to launch it hundreds of feet into the air before it blows up real good

It's Alaska, therefore blame Livingston Stapler
 
2014-08-03 03:06:49 AM  
Meh, read the article, sounds like the stuff was either vaporized in the bottles or the backpack prior to the lighting. No kudos to the kids, and the adults who suggested this was a bomb need to be ridiculed mercilessly.

They can't figure out how to get two quarts of water into that tiny envelope.

CSB time:

I can remember once as a kid making a batch of Kool-aid that tasted simply AWFUL. It was only after the second batch that I realized I had forgotten to add sugar.

The population of Juneau is 32,000. How hard can it be? We had one middle school in my town of 30,000 and anyone who did anything with more than two others was guaranteed to get caught eventually.

AXE body spray? Use of deadly force authorized. This goes for casual users too, as if there was such a thing as a casual user of AXE body spray.

I had a snow cone stand with the same problem. I ran out of the concentrated kool-aid syrup mom had made, so I tried to make my own. Probably the worst 25 cents those people ever spent.

OH NOES.

Reminds me of when I was a little bastard teen. We used a sharpie marker as a good time delay fuse, and set a can of Binaca on it. A few minutes later (with us watching from behind a dumpster behind a grocery store at 3am) the damn thing fired off like a rocket, with a big trail of flame behind it. Soon we graduated to cans of AquaNet, but they just tended to explode and didn't do the fun rockety thing that the Binaca cans did.

Didn't do it for long, and we got bored with it after a week or so, before anyone blew a hand off or anything, and we never used it for blowing other peoples' property up. After the initial "OMG IT TURNED INTO A ROCKET" thingy, we moved our illicit activities to the riverbed, away from houses and businesses (mainly so we wouldn't have the police called on us, rather than out of consideration).

/Cool story bro

When I was a kid, you might get your ear twisted by your dad if you got caught, or grounded for a few days at the worst... Nowadays, they'll probably charge the kids with "Terrorism" or somesuch. I can't imagine growing up the kind of bastard I was nowadays.

Used to make pool acid and aluminum foil bombs in soda bottles as a kid. When I think about it now, I'm really glad I have all my limbs and didn't burn my face off. Good times.

I realize today is Sunday, but we need to gather a special panel draw up a bill to ban and criminalize the possession of body spray IMMEDIATELY to stop this madness!

Won't SOMEONE think of the backpacks?!?!?

At some point in the 1990s someone decided it was better to fark kids up for the rest of their lives over penny-ante dumbfarkery than to make sure they got past it and contributed something better (typically based in the same instincts). At least half the professionals and academics I know would have been farked if their occasional mostly-harmless arson, assault, trespass, theft, drug use, vandalism, etc, had been treated as major crime.

We'd make Lysol and granular chlorine bombs on rainy days at the pool in my high school lifeguarding days. Good clean fun with a loud boom - as long as you kept clear of the cloud of chlorine gas.

We made out pipe bombs from the heads of safety matches, lots and lots of red rolls of caps cut open for the powder, and fuses manufactured from candle wicks. When I got caught I was taught how to do it right.

We used to disarm practice landmines and throw the explosive parts on the campfire when I was in Scouts at 10 -13. But you probably didn't have the real possibility of these assholes 100 miles away at the border.

You have a point. "If you recognize these pictures of people who might be 34 years old, although they have a young appearance, please contact the police." Gee, they were 13? Our bad.

Do people in Alaska still burn trash? Because in 1975, when my family moved from SoCal to Nebraska(Curtis if u care), the job of taking out the trash, and burning it, became my favorite chore. Aerosol cans, burnt light bulbs, and anything else that I discovered would explode in the flames became trash that I looked for on the side of the road. Good times...
Until the day the "boom" sent sparks up that lit the back yard on fire. I've told the full story on Fark before, but suffice it to say that a handful of leaves did  NOT hide the fact that the grass had been burnt almost to the soil. Many spanks, much pain, so deserved. ;p

I think this means that next winter when the local news jackasses ask, "Did you know it's warmer
in Alaska than in Chicago?", this is the reason why.

The ink is oil-based, and the felt acts as a wick. We were bored.
