Another typical over reaction. My brothers made those things when they were teenagers but they were smart enough to take them down by the river to shoot them off. People are nuts these days.

If you can't make bombs as a teenager in Amsterdam, where can you make them?

Kids have too much time on their hands. A 1000 hours of sweeping the streets should keep them busy and out of trouble.

Reminds me of the "Fonda-Fultonville Bottle Bombers" in October, 1996, where some members of the football team planted their concoctions in mail boxes and other spots. Of course they were suspended from only one football game because in the eyes of most of the area sports enthusiasts, football was the most important thing at the time. You can google the story & facts in the Schenectady Gazette.

It is a kid thing, I knew a kid when I was young that built pipe bombs. He learned that they were dangerous first hand. He also went into the Army and was very good as a demolitions expert. There is a place for everyone I guess.

And Laker, You like Obama make yourselves look less than stellar. You do not need my help at all!

"On topic as usual"...a quote from someone who mentions Obama/Lib Dems in an article about car-charging stations! Let irony prevail...

You know that there are people worth replying to, then there are those that deserve silence. Instead of going around this idiotic accusation ride I believe this is where I will get off. You can continue the ride as long as you like, have a great day!

On second thought, who do you think drives the taxpayer supplemented overpriced battery operated vehicles that are not worth their weight is popsicles? Your clues are they are the same people that fell hook line and sinker for global warming, the government takeover of automobile companies, the cash for clunkers the green technology spending spree and dozens of other nutsy ideas!
