On second thought the hammer was stupid. Should have
used a wooden dowel rod as that is what I used in
fountains and roman candle kits. My mom wouldn't let
my brother or I get the M-80/ash can/silver salute kits
available in the late '60's and early '70's. Damn, would have
made some serious noise. :)
I'm surprised they did not arrest him for terrorism... If he lived in CA
they would have arrested him and put him on $100,000 dollars bail. That
happened to some teens here awhile ago. On Halloween 2 years ago some teens
went to the high school football field and put some fire crackers in a
plastic pumpkin they bought and lit them off. A lady who lived across the
street called the police and they arrested them and put them on $50,000
bail. The parents had to pay the bail to get their kids out.. The DA
prosecuted them and it took almost a year to get things straitened out. I
figure that if fire crackers are worth $50,000 bail then surely making your
own pipe bomb would be worth $100,000 bail.
