Saw a warning on tumblr about kids leaving dangerously explosive soda bottle on people's lawns. They're rigged with Drano. They can be explosive. And the liquid in them is highly acid. 

Seemed extreme to me, so i checked with Snopes.com. Snopes corroborates that it's real. Click for details. And pass along the warning.

Here's the orignal post I saw on Tumblr.

PLEASE READ. WILL NOT HURT TO AND FORWARD.

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!! No fingers left and other serious effects to your face, eyes, etc.

Please ensure that everyone that may not have email access are also informed of this. 

Snopes confirms.
I’ve dealt with these before. If you find one:

*Do not touch it
Do not touch it
Clear the area around it. It will explode on its own in time.
Once it explodes, do not make contact with the liquid inside. If needed, flush it away with large amounts of water.
Do not try to detonate it. You’ll probably be disfigured.*

I love this man's comedy mind. He's found a way into funny that is uniquely his.  If you're in range, you can see his standup at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Monday Through Saturday, April 8 through 19th. #frezned

In which I learn that there is more to Japanese cinema than big guys in foam-rubber monster suits stomping on flimsy model cities.

This was my very first Japanese movie. It set really high standards for me. I knew the samurai wasn't typical but I loved every bit of it.

J&R. This is it. Good-bye. Another New York landmark (especially for geeks) closes.
J&R Music, the famous store in Lower Manhattan, closed last week after 43 years, forcing employees like Marty Singer, who had worked there since he was 19, to move on.

What's this? Yet another format change for YouTube? This one actually shows promise. Thanks for the preview
 
New video! I'm so excited to be a part of this beta test by Google+ and YouTube! This is a really huge step for online video. :D

In which Apple's screwiness during Steve Jobs's exile combines with my own screwiness to set me up for the spookiest film experience of my life. Not the spookiest film, mind you. The spookiest experience.

One of the most astonishing achievements in the history of movies. I love this film so much that when I heard they were showing a new digital restoration in London, I flew there and invited some of my friends to watch it with me at BFI Southbank.
