Drano, tin foil, and a little water in plastic drink bottles

My thoughts on this...

The potential threat described is real. Homemade chemical bottle bombs can indeed be made from commonly available substances, including Drano. Young pranksters have been creating such bombs for decades and a number of injuries have resulted, both to the bomb makers themselves and people who have inadvertently handled the devices.

Drano, tin foil, and a little water in plastic drink bottles
Warning.

Kids are putting Drano, tin foil, and a little water in plastic drink bottles
and capping it up - leaving it on lawns, in mail boxes, in gardens, on
driveways etc. just waiting for you to pick it up intending to put it in the
rubbish, but you'll never make it!!!

If the bottle is picked up, and the bottle is shaken even just a little - in
about 30 seconds or less it builds up enough gas which then explodes with
enough force to remove some your extremities. The liquid that comes out is
boiling hot as well.

Don't pick up any plastic bottles that may be lying in your yards or in the
gutter, etc.

Pay attention to this. A plastic bottle with a cap. A little Drano. A little
water. A small piece of foil.
Disturb it by moving it; and BOOM!!
