The smoke came out because she messed up (according to the Huffington Post)

Your right she should have tested this out "off of school property", or at least have consulted with a teacher before even bring it to school.

The kid that drew the gun is one thing, but this was in fact an explosive device. It doesn't matter if she was aware of it or not, if the cap was sealed correctly it would have exploded. People could have been injured (luckily that didn't happen).


A volcano for a science experiment is NOT an "explosive device", any more than a toaster pastry bitten a certain way is a "gun". Bowing to scare tactics, and allowing alarmist labels to be applied at will, is a sure way to end up with no rights. But, hey, call an honor student a "problem" for practicing an experiment, and you'll fit right in with the new oppressive society being formed.

Well if she going to do the time she may as well do a crime!

Her tyranical goverment has sold her out, the system is broken.

I say she should take her chemistry skills and make some REAL money W.W style

By the way its ironic.

Back in 2007 here in the UK as part of my A level I had to do a 5000 word essay on how to make high


To think me, my class and the teacher and exam board that assigned it would likkey be in jail in the "land of the free"

Man, the USA would have just loved my old science teacher, he loved making Bang Bang in the class room.

Logic won't get a person anywhere with those clowns running the classroom. What appears to be "smoke" leaving a volcano is a common occurrence and would add realism IMO.

BARTOW, FL — A 16-year-old girl ... Inside her volcano prop, was an 8-ounce water bottle with some toilet bowl cleaner in it. When the cleaner is exposed to aluminum, it creates an exothermic chemical reaction.

I remember playing with this reaction when I was about 12. A high school student told my bro and I about it. We used it to create
hydrogen balloons. We didn't follow instructions, but increased the aluminum and lye to the point where we could light the top of the bottle like a torch. I managed to get splattered with some of the lye. I quickly washed it off and survived with eyes and skin intact!

This is probably the reason for the "felony" charges. I suppose it could somehow be construed as dangerous.





Are ppl being charged? No?

People who think for themselves are the REAL TERRORISTS and those that do will PAY.

Least that's the impression I get from articles like these.

Hydrogen isn't THAT dangerous. Even the Hindenburg's problems were mostly caused by the Nitrate "Dope"
used to paint the fabric cover. If it weren't for that, no lives would have been lost.

Now lye is dangerous, especially when it can be splashed around.

How was this valid? She never talked to the teacher about what she was doing. In fact according to the report from the Huffington Post, She never talk to the teacher at all. Instead she just did what her friends told her to do.

That's not a valid science experiment that's just causing trouble under the guise of "science". If she had gone to the teacher, then I think this whole affair would have been different.

I think too many people are focusing on the "Honor Student" label and the term "Science Experiment" rather than looking at what she actually did (as in bring a chemical device to a public school, and then engaging the detonation cycle). We can all say that this poor girl didn't know any better, but look people she should have done research into what she was doing rather then "just listening" to her friends.




And the pussification of the American spirit continues.

(Sorry if that offends any of the ladies out there)

You do realize that part of science is FINDING ALT. METHODS, right? I'm assuming that since she is an honor student, she looked up ways to do the project that were NON-NUCLEAR and came up with this.

The biggest problem I see is "the narrative" that's being handed out like tic-tacs, and ppl like yourself that just give in to it.

We've lived for quite some time w/o the govt's help. We've managed to feed ourselves, cloth ourselves, and most ppl aren't clinically insane OR psychotic.

You wouldn't believe that by reading articles like this however.

I'm assuming the ppl giving the honor student grief over her "bomb" are the same ppl that often spout out "freedom of choice", pro-choice, etc. What happened to the "choice" of thinking for yourself? Or not relying on other ppl for everything under the sun?

Shoot, does anyone remember that story a few months back where that woman called 911 basically asking for PERMISSION to shoot an intruder to protect her child?!! Talk about STOCKHOLMED!

Same thing,the way I see it. God forbid you just go ahead and manage on your own!

I don't think this has anything to do with a stupid experiment. I honestly think this has to do with ppl getting used to asking for permission, for everything.

I can't wait till we get to the point where ppl have to ask permission to breathe, maybe then some of these ppl will just hold their breathe till they die cause no one told them to exhale!

This has to do with common sense.
Go back and read the source article Huffington Post

Now explain to me how this has anything to do with political submission (since that's what most of you have been implying). The girl getting permission before bringing this to school is a factor of common sense (if we are to believe that this Honor Student did research what these chemicals do when mixed). On the other hand if she just blindly did what her friends told her, then that opens up a whole different set of issues.

Why the blazes in a FREE country do we need to seek permission for "everything", as you put it? Everything? Really? Permission from whom, exactly? Maybe some don't have issues with being an obedient servant to some dictator, but most of us do.

You want people to ask permission to breathe, so they can stop and die and get out of your way? Really? Who are "these people" of which you speak? The ones trying to live free, or the ones demanding that we all bow down and act like blind sheep?

Another attack on free thinkers, and those who pose a threat to non compliance of agenda.

Possibly ?

How so? Also did you read the original story from the Huffington post, or just the version from "Police State" that was linked in the OP?

(I linked the Huffington Post article in my prior post)

The teacher got really upset with them, but it was sort of understood that the pair who did it were idiots who didn't know any better. Maybe they had to talk to the principal or something; but they weren't expelled.
