PSA: Important enough to post

ALERT

Straight from Davidson County Sheriff's office:

Kids are putting Drano, aluminum foil, and a little water in soda bottles and capping it up - leaving it on lawns. When you go to pick up the trash, and the bottle is shaken just a little - in about 30 seconds or less it builds up a gas and explodes with enough force to remove some of 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.

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 !!

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.

Kids today aren't what they used to be. That's all I can really say about the sad state of these affairs.

No moral compasses? The continuing breakdown of society? Hell, I don't know what's wrong with kids today! I can tell you that I saw crap like this coming 20 years ago, though, and it's one reason I chose not to reproduce.

Lack of parenting. Parents have been effectively neutered by all those handwringers decrying discipline as being somehow detrimental to a child's learning and exploring of their surroundings, so now parents don't tell their kids not to do things that our parents would've sent our heads flying into the next county for.

And if you think I'm hyperbolizing, I'm not. I watch it happen with my 7 year old niece. She gets into something she's not supposed to, mommy says a perfunctory "no," she says "but I just wanna..." and continues whatever it was she was doing. I remember one time she was starting to dig in a box I had a bunch of bottles of pills in, and I told her to stop. She started with her "but I just wanna..." and I told her no again, this time in a firm "I'm not fucking around, little girl" tone of voice. She starts howling like I just cracked her upside the head with a 2x4, and my sister comes charging in from the other room all "OMG WHAT DID YOU DO TO HER??? MY POOR BABY!" Yeah, teach your "poor baby" to keep her grubby mitts off other people's things and to listen when someone says "no."
