That's a little extreme for some parted legs. I usually just head over to the Pink Monkey. You don't need explosives, just dollar bills.

Headso: I bet it was a doomsday prepper guy


Or he was just a moron that liked to watch things go boom, and didn't realize that if you don't know WTF you're doing, you can hurt yourself, because those guys on "Jackass" make this shait look easy.

We had this type of idiot in one of the high schools I went to. Dumbass went and filled a small pipe with a bunch of "strike-anywhere" match heads and the powder from a bunch of firecrackers, then plugged both ends. After which, our intrepid hero realized that he hadn't left a hole to put the fuse into his little noisemaker. So, he stood the pipe bomb up on his dad's workbench, held a nail in his left hand, and hammered it into the top. He managed to blow off the thumb, index, and middle fingers on his left hand, and temporarily go blind in one eye. He was just lucky the damage wasn't worse.

Tacna, way out west by Yuma.

Looks like the entire town is a trailer park, sitting right next to an industrial park. I'm starting to think it was less "guy tinkering with explosives" and more "meth lab blows up". I lived in Arizona for a little while, and that part of the state always seemed like the Florida of the state.

the article mentions a shipping container, prepper people love those things. He was probably making bombs to keep the hordes of people from stealing his freeze dried mashed pertaters and 5 gallon buckets full of rice.

Like I said in a later post, after looking at the Google Map satellite view, this looks like meth cooking country. I'll bet the local sheriffs and PD were getting a piece of the action, and covered up the meth lab explosion with the pipe bomb and idiot story

My friends and I knew how to make and detonate such things safely at the age of 15.

It's a wonder this fool lived to be 31.

Ah well, maybe he was just trying to get a leg up on the turrists.

It is illegal to manufacture improvised explosive devices. Bratcher says authorities will review the case to determine whether to file charges against Coulter.

Nice!

That was my first thought, followed by wondering how subby chose 'dumbass' over 'sick.' Then I thought that a hybrid needs to be made - the flaming dumbass tag, for the Darwin award finalists. Perhaps this could even merit a Darwin tag, as it's difficult to think of thing more award-worthy than working with explosive material that close to your junk.

I assume it's a play on "A fool and his money are soon parted". Of course, it's less evocative of the original saying if you get the phrasing wrong by omitting the word "soon", as the submitter did.
