    Model Rocket ejection charge?

    @badinnova - This article does not specify what type of device was detonated.  Please share your source.

    If you think pulling a prank on your buddy by filling a soda bottle filled with sprite and cleaning fluid is grounds for charging them with manufacturing and detonating an explosive device then you are a real idiot.  What has this world come to???  Let’s spend thousands of $$$ of tax payer money on this.  Give me a break!!  Our justice system has flat out gone too far on this one!!  Maybe we should start a defense fund to help these kids out and then sue the idiot who brought the charges against them - the district attorney who is set on making a name for himself at the expense of others.

    mentos and diet coke?
