The clear layer is glycerin. You can mix glycerin back in when you make soap. Or you can skim the glycerin off.


You can mix glycerin with nitric acid to make nitroglyerin.


You can mix nitroglycerin with sodium nitrate and sawdust to make dynamite.


You can blow up bridges.


You can mix nitroglycerin with more nitric acid and and parafin and make gelatin explosives.


You can blow up a building, easy.


With enough soap, you can blow up the whole world.


I know this because Tyler knows this.

Ya, you know my only concern at the moment is the oft chance the Iranians might respond in kind in self-defense or some such other ridiculous reaction to getting attacked and one of their bases being fucking blown to smithereens.

They are taking out certain operational areas that could be used to tool more rockets or fuel for their rockets.  They know that Iran has alot of long range (and accurate) rockets.  They want to be able to take them all out at one time and not be able to reconstitute quickly.  Who knows, there might be special forces in the country sabotaging key structures for a prelude to attack.  Remember the media will work with the govt. to keep things quiet.

The cunning plan: keep degrading the missle facilities. Check this new headline out from over at the Debka site: NATO-Gulf military officers in Turkey prepare for intervention in Syria.  While you degrade Iranian missle capability, you crash Assad's economic base, cut off the flow of whizz-bangs to Hamas et al, then fire up the missle defense, drop everything you have on Iran via air strikes while the IDF invades the territories and slaughters everyone.  Then they have a free ride to the Tigris. The helpless Iraqis shit all over themselves and the New Zionist Empire, from the transjordan to the Tigris is complete. Obama gets promoted to Overlord by his Neocon Masters. Bwa ha ha.... yours,

gotta love when Fight Club quotes get down voted.  I posted, "Listen to me! You have to consider the possibility that God does not like you. He never wanted you. In all probability, he hates you" - the other day and received dozens of down votes.  It's been made into a movie!  You don't even have to read!

Fortunately, anyone dumb enough to try any of this won't survive it.  Munitions chemistry in the hands of the unskilled eliminates a lot of mad bombers before they can act.

You need fuming (red) nitric acid to fully nitrate the glycerin. Not easy. These types polynitrated compounds in pure form are very shock (mechanically & electrically) sensitive. Don't believe recipes from the Internet.

Naphthalene (mothballs) are far more useful and less messy than paraffin or sawdust (although nitrocellulose is a good fuse material). Paraffin is not easily nitrated. Naphthalene mixtures form stable putty/plastics.

That said, why would anyone want to blow things up?

As it does every year, WND is inviting readers to submit their candidates for the most "spiked" stories of the year in Operation Spike!

At this time, news organizations prepare their year-end retrospective replays of what they consider to have been the top news stories of the previous 12 months. But WND's editors have always found it more newsworthy to publish a compilation of the important stories most ignored by the establishment press.

WND Editor and CEO Joseph Farah has sponsored "Operation Spike" every year since 1988 and since founding WND in May 1997 has continued the annual tradition. For the past 12 years, WND has invited its readers to join in and submit what they considered the most underreported stories of the past year.

(Story continues below)


Last year, WND's "readers' choice" picks for the 10 most underreported stories of 2011 were:

  1. Elections official Tim Adams claims there is no Hawaiian birth certificate for Barack Obama.
  2. Army officer court-martialed, jailed after questioning Obama's eligibility.
  3. The reality of how poorly the U.S. economy is doing.
  4. America's move toward socialism.
  5. The fall of the "mainstream" news media as ratings drop, advertising plunges and public distrust grows.
  6. Allegations of fraud, including illegal voting by felons and a formalized refusal by some states to follow election law regarding ballots for the military raise the possibility of manipulation of elections.
  7. Mysterious missile spotted off the coast of California.
  8. The growing evidence against the theory that mankind is a significant factor in climate change.
  9. The push in the U.S. courts by homosexual advocates to demand the legalization of same-sex "marriage" as well as through Congress to formally adopt the policy of allowing self-declared homosexuals in the U.S. military.
  10. The impact of the TSA's full-body scanners, including the associated health risks, invasion of privacy and violations of the 4th Amendment protections against unreasonable searches.
