My son, the terrorist in training

I am not a very creative person. Nor am I very imaginative or handy.

My son, on the other hand, is pretty creative and handy. Or maybe he just copies his friends. I don't know.

He built himself a clubhouse. I can honestly say I did not help him at ll. I did not even knock in one nail or hold one board for him. This clubhouse is like a castle. Now he is workign on building a second floor to it. He also hooked up all sorts of electrical things; lights, buzzer, fan, and more all wired to 9 volt batteries...

Now he is training to be a terrorist. I came home today to find him assembling a bomb. He was stripping the "explosive" off a sparkler. He put it all into a bottle cap. He taped the bottle cap to another bottle cap and insrted a fuse.

He claims that the pressure will cause the explosive to explode and shoot the caps into the air very high (he says as high as the height of the building). He is waiting for dark to set it off.

Wish me luck.

  2. turns out it was a dud. He is going to get better gun powder/explosive material tomorrow. He says he did it today with his friends and it worked. I guess the second sparkler he used must have been a dud. Thank God!

  9. How old is your son?

    I have three boys, the oldest being almost 6, and they have yet to get into actual explosives, matches here and there, but not explosives yet.

  12. I am afraid to comment on the issue. Let's see: A blog in the middle east writing about a son's terrorist ambition and explosives training. Yeah, that's a list I want to be on.

  13. yeah, I was hesitant to post it for that same reason.. then I figured I am probably already on some CIA/FBI/Mossad watchlist anyway, so big deal....
