I can relate. I used A LOT of C-4 and Flex-X in the Big Green Lantern, and I was way too close to several air strikes and arty, ours and theirs. HE does not discriminate!
You can violate the laws of man and get away with it most of the time, but you can't violate the laws of physics and get away with it ever.

Saw a kid under my training bring back a Kiowa with a huge honkin hole in the center of the canopy. seems he was too close to a live rocket strike and the target was(a dead APC) packed with arty simulators...
More paperwork......(*sigh*)

Yes indeed, kinda like a grenade! Leave it on your desk and sooner or later some dumbass will most certainly pull the pin! Erckles are everywhere including the Whitehouse, "Ooops, Did I do that???"

Truth is, as long as all they do is take themselves out, Im ok with that generally! Its when they involve those of us around them in their Darwinian Adventures that I draw the line.

Thats why Im a Country Boy, much safer out here, many less Darwins per capita! Not like we dont play our share of dangerous games, Ive had a few OMG moments but we were much better than folks nowadays at recognizing the power and the strength of the tools we were "Experimenting with".

Few of the things we did were "As seen on TV", we learned them first hand from people who knew before we tried them ourselves! Two local farmers lost their arms in corn-choppers in a month in the 70's (just like a corn stalk), lesson was learned by all of us every-time we saw their hook arms, "Turn the Tractor off before you unplug a jamb in a PTO driven implement". Mrs Ames gross patch over her right eye reminded us just how dangerous a light front end on a pigeon toed tractor could be on a steep grade! We all knew not to go to Arnolds TNT Shack EVER even though he didnt lock it, we saw how he made ponds with it, NFW were we messing with that!

The guy who did this should tattoo Idiot on his forehead with a few thousand other documented idiots we have seen on TV.

Tell me about it. I live in the same county as the moron who made the news (at least in this region, he is mentioned, not by name on the Tannerite Wiki page.) for setting off 18 pounds of the stuff on the southern end of the county. i guess the BOOM was heard as far away as parts of Warren County PA. His cousin rents one of the rooms in the house I live in, and in his own words:

"Frankly, I am amazed the he has lived this long. God must protect fools."

i will admit that I play with my toys that go boom from time to time. I will even admit that I enjoy watching explosions, but only from a safe distance. I also make it a policy to let local LE know when and where i will be playing that day. Full safety procdures are in effect EVERY time I use reactive targets. Not just for me, for everyone involve. participant and observer, no exceptions.

Doc3402's signature says it all. Accidents don't just happen. They must be carelessly planned. The guy in the video just jumped to the top of my list for honorable mentions for a Darwin Award.

Honestly people give me a funny look when I go shooting wearing the old combat helmet. THIS RIGHT HERE IS WHY PEOPLE! If he had been wearing a helmet he would have had a better chance of not having to go to the hospital. Just thinking about this he also would have been better off digging in to it would have covered his body better. Hell I hope he rethinks how he uses tannerite that shrapnel could have just easily hit him in the throat.

How can people be this damn stupid.
