I thought this article was worth a post, in
case anyone hadn't seen it. I think some
kids out there need a time out. Make sure
you check out the video at the end of the article.

THIS IS TRUE, IT IS ON SNOPES.COM

Danger,,,, please read and forward.
Kids are putting Drano, tin foil, and a little water in soda bottles and capping it up - leaving it on lawns. When you go to pick up the trash, and the bottle is shaken just a little - in about 30 seconds or less it builds up a gas and explodes with enough force to remove

some of your extremities.
The liquid that comes out is boiling hot as well.
Don't pick up any plastic bottles that may be lying in your yards or in the
gutter, etc. Pay attention to this. A plastic bottle with a cap. A little Drano. A little water. A small piece of foil. Disturb it by moving
it; and BOOM!! No fingers left and other serious effects to your face, eyes, etc.
People are finding these "bombs" in mailboxes and in their yards, just
waiting for you to pick it up intending to put it in the trash. But, you'll never make it!!! It takes about 30 seconds to blow after you move the
thing.
See "SNOPES" below -- it ' s true -- the video at SNOPES shows the
Indiana State Police Bomb Squad detonating one -- it ' s truly
horrifying!
So be warned and beware.

Dry ice in a plastic bottle makes a great bang.
