PLEASE READ. WILL NOT HURT TO AND FORWARD.
Kids are putting Drano, tin foil, and a little water in plastic drink bottles
and capping it up - leaving it on lawns, in mail boxes, in gardens, on driveways etc. just waiting for you to pick it up intending to put it in the rubbish, but you’ll never make it!!!
If the bottle is picked up, and the bottle is shaken even just a little - in about 30 seconds or less it builds up enough gas which then explodes with enough force to remove some 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.
Please ensure that everyone that may not have email access are also informed of this.
I’ve dealt with these before. If you find one:
- Do not touch it
- Do not touch it
- Clear the area around it. It will explode on its own in time.
- Once it explodes, do not make contact with the liquid inside. If needed, flush it away with large amounts of water.
- Do not try to detonate it. You’ll probably be disfigured.
I’ve seen what these can do. The acidic liquid inside can strip the paint off a car.
when i visited vancouver these were everywhere. it’s not a fucking joke they’re actually scary
Just a reminder that there are awful shitty people out there doing awful shitty things to everyone else
there was a bunch of these at disneyland
i found one in my back yard, when i let my dogs out, i pulled them back inside, took my cousins bb shotgun and shot it from a safe distance (i was in my house and shot from the screen door. When it went off, my family and neighbors came running to see if everything was ok. I told them what happened and to watch out for them.
These things are not a joke! When we went to check the damage there was a fucking hole in the ground. The dirt in my yard is like CLAY.
This shit is bad news
PLEASE DON’T BE AN ASSHAT. PLEASE DON’T LEAVE BOMBS IN PEOPLE’S YARDS.
hoLY FUCKING SHIT ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME!? JESUS CHRIST! Please followers keep this in mind and do not touch those things. Fuck. I can’t believe that something like that even exists…
My mother is an EMD and these things can definitely cause some damage.
My workplace also had to have a full scale evacuation just before I started because someone found one of these in the back parking lot.
If you see them, DO NOT TOUCH. Do not go near them. Do not let anyone else go near them. CALL THE POLICE AND REQUEST THE BOMB SQUAD. They can’t do much, but they will cordon off the area and keep people from getting hurt.
I’m sure these count as “IED’s” - and I’m sure homeland security will make you disappear if you put a lethal bomb in someone’s mailbox. Ever seen Butterfly Effect? Don’t be an idiot.
I got a phone call from Jamaica today - the man tells me that I’ve won $750,000. The screen said “Jamaica” - but the area code was US and he claimed to be from Michigan or something.
He just wants me to get in my car and go to Walgreens. He understands that I might be doubtful and excited if I’ve never won this much money before, but he wants me not to feel threatened.
Ha - of course he doesn’t. He wants me to feel happy just long enough to steal everything I have. In his heavy Jamaican accent, he assured me that this was one-hundred percent legitimate, and that I had been personally selected - even though he didn’t know my name.
I told him I didn’t believe any of it - and he hung up before the sentence was over. My advice - do the same.
This is Awesome Cat. She’s awesome.
