These web pages on Boomershoot.org get searched for bomb building information
via google, msn.search, yahoo, etc. every day. Here are the number
of searches broken down by month for 2001.
Wondering whether the big spike in September started before or after the 11th
I graphed that month out by the day.
Maybe Just A Little Slow to Notice.

What the hell is the idea of wasting a web page if you dont want to help any kids to make bombs. I'm 11 and I'd know.
Please reply without any stupid answers!
I was in a good mood at the time so I was charitable.

Great way to start a conversation -- 'Are you just stupid?'
I'll overlook that for now...
You'd know what?

His email address was invalid. So he didn't get the message. Oh
well. He probably wouldn't have got it even if he got the email.

how do you make a bomb that creates a ball of
fire or is very powerful. i dont want to blow up my school or anything like
that. i just want to throw them in prarie dog holes and blow up beaver dams.
i heard that people can make bombs out of bleach or aspirin. is that true? i
have had no sucess, just a mess with my other aerosol bombs. please respond
to peternat@ [snip]
These two have me a bit perplexed. What is going on here? The
first uses almost the exact same words as my 13-year old 'friend'
in the UK. They must have read at least part of this page. English
probably isn't their native language, oh well. I ignored it.
The second refers to beaver dams, again implying they read this page.
Then, the From: field has a Pamela, I'm asked to reply to a 'Peter', and
it is signed 'Lee'. I ignored it.

I already know how to make a load of bombs...(simple...and complex..).....i have never tried though...(too afraid of blowing my own arm off.).....i have made some smoke bombs though...kinda cool....anyway, i was thinking of making small exploading bombs..(firecrackers and such)...just to have some fun, but like i said, i dont want to blow my arm off...so i was just wondering if you could give me some safety tips and some rules to follow in making this kind of stuff??........i would really appreciate your

hey forget about the question i just asked........i probably wouldnt have the balls to go through with it, and i dont want to waste your time...thanks anyway.
I didn't make up his email address. That's really what it is (minus the
domain name). My stomach still hurts from laughing so hard.
Check out http://www.boomershoot.org/general/BombHelp.htm#Nevermind some time. I've got some new material up.
Grumpy Old Man

must be a very sad , grumpy old man!!!....when i was young and inquisitive
which was like 25 yrs we never had the wonderfull tool called
"internet" so when i started with explosives it was done from
books and trial & error.
pyrotechnicks is a wonderfull hoby &
future, and if i had`nt experimented with it i feel i would have lost out
on hrs of fun .working with explosives is HANDS ON ,you dont get no fun
reading about it.........do you think that the 13yr old boy is now going
to forget about explosives becuase you probobly got him suspended from
school....NO.!!.....so why didnt you give him a bit of helpfull advice ,
point him in the right direction of safety issues, and learning
lets face it....a boy of 13 is hardly going to
try and make nitro glycerin or c4........he just wanted to make a small
bang....this can be produced very easy with next to no danger..........and
the learning experiance could be MASSIVE.......
I've received lots of email about this page. This
was the first one that I could almost take seriously that was critical...
<shrug>. Can't make everyone happy.
