Serious Warning

Read this and then click the snopes link for more info and a video! 



Don't pick up any plastic bottles that may be laying in your yards, in your mailbox, etc. 

Click on the Snopes web page below to watch the video. 

Good safety info that I never heard of; be careful and watch the video if you don't believe it. 



Pay attention to this. 

1. a plastic bottle with a cap. 

2. a little Drano. 

3. a little water. 

4. a small piece of foil. 

5. Disturb  it by moving it; and BOOM!! 
6. No fingers left and other serious effects to your face, eyes, etc.. 



People are finding these bombs in mailboxes and in their yards, just 

waiting for you to pick it up intending to put it in the trash. 

But, you'll never make it!!! It takes about 30 seconds to blow 

after you move the thing. 



See "SNOPES" below....it's true. This happened a few days 

ago...April 27, 2010 as a matter of fact.

Super scary, people are always throwing garbage in our yard, so I would not think twice about picking something like that up.
