Want Some Help Building a Bomb? 

People send me email asking for help building a bomb, obtaining chemicals, blowing up beaver dams, things like that.  Some people think it's the ATF trying to entrap me.  In some cases I'm nearly certain that is not the case.  In others I suppose it's possible.  In any case my son came up with what I think is a pretty good idea.  I was telling him about all the email and he enjoyed the stories so much that he thought I should publish my responses and how they turned out.  I hope you enjoy the stories as much as he did.

See also some of the fan mail I get.

In all cases I have removed or disguised the email address (and the email itself to a minor extent) enough that people won't be immediately recognizable or contactable.

It depends on lot of things How much money do you have to spend on each bomb? How will you deliver it (backpack, car, van, truck, airplane)?

Where are you located and what types of materials available there? The materials easily available in the U.S. are much different than in Europe or Australia.

There are far too many variables to give you a meaningful answer without a lot more information from you.

Hi
Myself and my friend would like to make a bomb for a project. Something not too big or too dangerous but something big enough and loud enough to get us top marks. Please don't post this on your web page as i don't want my enemy at school to copy us. I know that sounds very childish but thats what she does. Thank you. Waiting in anticipation...

Do you put want to put a hole in a concrete wall? Cutting through steel wall? Anti-personnel? Bring down an airplane in flight? Put a hole in an airport runway? Bring down a bridge or building (what type of bridge or building?)? Taking out a car/truck/Hum-Vee/tank? Do you just want to disable the car or do you want to ensure a kill of the occupants? How much money do you have to spend on each bomb? How will you deliver it (backpack, car, van, truck, airplane)? Do you need to be miles away when it goes boom? Or is it going to be strapped around your chest?

A bomb that doesn't make too much noise? Wouldn't that be like being pregnant without fertilized egg? Or maybe shooting a gun without ammunition? I know, it's like going for a drive in your car--without the car.

At first I was perplexed because I addressed your precise situation just a few weeks ago on my web site. The page is here:

But after a few seconds of thought I realized there was no cause to be perplexed. And you, in your own email, told me the answer--you have no clue.
