hummmmmmm, maybe a prankster trying to get a rise out of people or trying to scare people. The bad think about "pipe bombs", just about anyone can build them if they know what they are doing. A few years back, I heard that a person can learn how to build one by surfing the internet for sites with info. .

Deeprivergal, I just realized that your from Iowa and from Deep River, cool, it's nice to see another Iowa native in ATS

About 1 1/2 weeks ago, two young men were killed and the third boy is seriously injured in an explosion due to a pipe-bomb just five miles from where I live, they also found more pipe-bombs in the barn where these three were building/trying to build the bombs. I talked to a 18 yr old about this and he said a friend of his was suppose to have been there helping the other's but something came up and he wasn't able to be there helping the others build the thing. I remarked wondering , "why" they were building something that dangerous, to the 18 yr old and he said, he was told, " they wanted to see if they could build one".
It is unbeleiveable what some kids will come up with/find to do, just to see if they can do it.
