Men just like to blow things up
A Minnesota man faces some serious charges after creating and detonating a homemade bomb on his own property. If you watch the video, you can hear his friends whooping it up in the background. This is something I could see my family doing. Albeit on a much smaller scale.
In my opinion, this is a case of a very bored Minnesotan, not some terrorist. The Feds in DC have no idea what deep winter is like. I'm ready to blow something up and it's not even February. I'll have to settle for burning popcorn in the microwave. I'm hoping that common sense will prevail and they won't throw the book at him. Make him do some community service - actually, make him help track down REAL terrorists trying to buy this stuff on the internet. Or train him for the bomb squad. Obviously the guy has some talents to contribute.
