A complete overreaction. Hopefully, with the press around this, it will simply go away.


Now this girl is probably going to be a felon for life, simply because she made the cap pop off a water bottle.


No she won't, she's a minor, this will be sealed and expunged, if not completely dismissed after the press on it.

And that's all that you need to do with an exemplary child with no criminal intent who doesn't calculate the consequences of a fun experiment.

Is to make them think.

They don't need a felony record to teach them to be more careful.

The reporter, should be slapped and slapped hard...the IDIOTS who charged this girl should be hung up on poles like the TALIBAN they are...What's next Florida, Shooting girls in the face for DARING to want to READ???

Pathetic losers, this pisses me off to no end. It's not sad, IT'S A BLOODY OUTRAGE!

MY GOD PEOPLE if it were up to these BACKWARD CAVE MAN GOAT HERDING REACTIONARIES in OUR GOV AND PIGGIE FORCE we would be living in the DARK AGES because SCIENCE would be considered "eeeeeeevvvvviiiiilllllll", what a bunch of moronic dark minded paranoid retards running things.

HOW many INVENTIONS were done by Inquisitive minds? WE wouldn't Have electricity today if it were up to these mental retards, we wouldn't have the computer, medicine, nothing but paranoid superstitions and priests butchering kids and raoe/torturing females and men who Question them because my god they MST be talking to Lucifer. THIS # HAS TO STOP. OR they'll drag us ALL back to the Neandrathal age. Kids do experiments after LEARNING in those science books because they are Curious and because SCIENCE is Awesome. But no, can't have that, and Especially not a girl, a d Especially not a no. White girl, but now FINE and DANDY if that same LAW FORCE wants to raoe this child and then it's Submit little witch...and That's totally acceptable. You would think the parents in this area would be storming that school and having a lynch mob against the stupidity but no, they've been brainwashed too. It is really scary, to See how far the rabbit hole we have gone.

So little girls and boys, don't Learn, just watch grooming for the porn world instead, because the legislature damn sure will PROTECT the PEDOPHILES who destroy you, but don't you DARE PICK UP A BOOK AND DARE TO THINK OR LEARN...crawl back into the dark caves, the minions of Theocracy will be the ONLY light we need...

I so denounce this stupid backwards nation...so denounce it.

Any half-decent lawyer can easily argue that baking soda and vinegar, when combined, are clearly NOT an explosive. The reaction produces excess Carbon Dioxide. If the reaction occurs in a plastic bottle, then it is simply a case of the CO2 pressure exceeding the container strength. Essentially, her crimes are equivalent to popping a messy balloon.


You are wrong.

It's just a kind of explosion anyhow.


I got served. Well played buddhasystem, well played.

Just another reason to school our children at home!
This fear mentality drives over reaction.
As long as the MSM keeps over reacting and the authorities keep creating
scape goats for their agenda America will live in fear of their own undisciplined children! This is a recipe
for creating a dystopian society! If we continue on this path we will live in fear of doing or saying anything!

So, I looked up on youtube the sort of explosion she caused... tinfoil and toilet cleaner.

www.youtube.com...
www.youtube.com...

Actually a fairly substantial bang, which could have injured anyone close to it. We have to remember that there's no footage of the particular explosion. For all we know it was a window rattler.

I think pressing criminal charges is OTT, but some kind of school disciplinary action WAS warranted if she did this on school grounds.

Oh, and FIRE THAT SCHOOL, because Obviously they never heard of ...18 year old Chemist William Perkin (Dye as well as Cancer treatment); Henry Becqueril (sic) radioactivity; home chemist Leo Hendricks PLASTIC yea what those STUPID DAs and PIGS use daily the fricking retards, another Accidental experiment; Charles Goodyear Rubber; Roy Plunket TEFLON. Make that DA use an old tin pan and SCRUB that thing clean and don't you DARE let there be one sticky food item ...arrrrg (yes aware of teflons bad side); Smart dust and tons of OTHER INVENTIONS by minds like this girls,

FIRE THAT SCHOOL AND THAT IGNORANT DA...because they are STUPID beyond measure. Florida has a record for STUPIDITY when it comes to charging abused kids, charging abused women who fire a warning shot while letting a long time KNOWN abuser walk (just last year) and so forth...if you're not livid over the backwardness of this over reaction then you must be as scientifically ignorant as the morons who charged her as a felon.

What's next, GITMO for reading Non Fundie Books?!!! OH my gosh reading about Evolution? This isn't about smoke coming out of a bottle, oh no, they are terrorizing Females at the borders for having Condoms, Terrorizing females in schools, terrorizing females who DARE object to rape in colleges (recent case) I mean this shows a PATTERN, where do we DRAW the line and say NO MORE? They are USING every door available to them to create a Sharia like Totalitarian system but worse, they want to dumb us down to anceint BC, I say NO,

I say we run these backwards theocratic superstitious fear war mongering dogs back to the dark world where they belong, and get them OUT IF OUR LEGIS NOW.

Hey look, thanks for being a good sport, honestly. I have to confess I was wondering for a long time at which point combustion becomes "formally" an explosion... Grey area, I guess. What is the rate of energy release that separates "explosions" from other supposedly less violent phenomena? That brings me to a funny Darwin Awards Incident:


(1998) In rural Carbon County, Pennsylvania, a group of men were drinking beer and discharging firearms from the rear deck of a home owned by Irving Michaels, age 27. The men were firing at a raccoon that was wandering by, but the beer apparently impaired their aim. Despite an estimated 35 shots fired by the group, the animal escaped into a 3' diameter drainage pipe 100 feet away from Mr. Michaels' deck.

Determined to terminate the animal, Mr. Michaels retrieved a can of gasoline and poured some down the pipe, intending to smoke the animal out. After several unsuccessful attempts to ignite the fuel, Michaels emptied the entire five-gallon fuel can down the pipe and tried to light it again, to no avail.

Not one to admit defeat by wildlife, the determined Mr. Michaels proceeded to slide feet-first approximately 15 feet down the sloping pipe to toss the match. The subsequent rapidly-expanding fireball propelled Mr. Michaels back the way he had come, though at a much higher rate of speed. He exited the angled pipe "like a Polaris missile leaves a submarine," according to witness Joseph McFadden, 31.

Mr. Michaels was launched directly over his own home, right over the heads of his astonished friends, onto his front lawn. In all, he traveled over 200 feet through the air. "There was a Doppler Effect to his scream as he flew over us," McFadden reported, "followed by a loud thud." Amazingly, he suffered only minor injuries.

"It was actually pretty cool," Michaels said, "Like when they shoot someone out of a cannon at the circus. I'd do it again if I was sure I wouldn't get hurt."

Your link is quite informative, however i believe your definition is very broad in this instance. In my HAZMAT classes during the fire academy this would have been classified as a rapid release of pressure, "explosions" are reserved for those instances involving flammable substances and under certain conditions. For example, a LPG (Liquid Petrolium Gas) cylinder that is heated from an outside source (lets say a fire). The pressure builds up inside the cylinder until the vessel ruptures resulting in a rapid release of pressure, the then released
LPG exits the vessel coming into contact with the heat source causing the vapor to then combust rapidly (explode). We would refer to this instance a BLEVE (Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapor Explosion).

So as far as the instance being an actual explosion I would have to say it is not because there is no combustion present. However this is an event that could have produced a IDLH (Immediately Dangerous to Life and Health) sittuation, whether it be from shrapnel or poisnous gas depending on the chemicals used.

For those that will say a water bottle will not create shrapnel you are mistaken. When i was in the Seabees we made "MRE bombs" to pass the time on field exercises. I have personally been struck in the side of the head with a fast moving bottle cap. It may not have caused any debilitating injuries, but it did sting a little.

I guess some people have so little control over their own life that controlling others is the only chance they have left to flatter their ego.


If this sentence was not that long, i would print it on a t-shirt


ontopic:

This is so ridiculous.
How a 16 year old child could be charged for a (non)felony like this, is beyond my believes.
Here in the Netherlands the parents or legal guardian are responsible for 18 year or younger children.
And a 16 year old can not be charged with something like this.
Maybe a fingerwaving cop saying.. "This is a No-No little girl" hahaha
The police here are such wimps... they would be running like the wind if they heard a little bang


And why are the teachers not protecting the child and just "turning her in"?:O

I got some friends and familymembers that are teachers and i know one thing.
They treat the students like their own kids and would never allow this to happen.

Next it'll be arrests for making 'potentially' devastating missiles out of diet coke bottles and mintos.

If this had severely injured herself or others maybe the OP would have a clearer understanding of why she was arrested.

Just because, luckily, no one gets hurt doesn't mean your excused from the rules and regulations of society.

Whoever said this was about fear is exactly right. These types of tactics used by the police and government agencies like the FBI are nothing more than TERROR TACTICS. The same breed of tactics they say they wish to protect us from. It is about instilling fear into the population, and they basically want to be able to control everyone to a certain extent. These groups have gotten way out of hand. In fact, most of the clandestine groups of the US got waaay out of hand soon after they were begun, yet by now Congress has no oversight over these organizations, and they cannot govern themselves with any morality or sense of the law, as they seem themselves as above the law, since they are tasked with enforcing it.

It is this mindset that causes police officers in the street to break the law and do what we all know many of them do, and nothing happens to them. If nothing happens to the police officers, nothing is ever going to happen to the agency personnel, as they have the power to make evidence disappear. They have even made people disappear.

This case is just sickening. I suppose the worst part is that there was no criminal intent evident. And how is this a federal crime? I understand it was on school property, but this is just out of line. It seems that those tasked with upholding the law suck at their jobs so much that they have to bring charges like this. It just shows how detached they are from reality. And it is scary to think that all around the US there are citizens with this same mindset. It makes it seem like there is no hope, as the stupidity seems insurmountable. I often wonder whether there are more sane people or insane people in the US. Looking at the membership of our political parties is a start to getting some solid data, as the stereotypes that are in place regarding these organizations are often highly accurate.

LOL,

Yea I get Really postal about this type of judicial abuse, and it's getting Realy bad across this nation, most cases majority never hear about...so when these odd cases come up people are shocked but immediately begin to RATIONALIZE THE ABSURDITY because it IS ABSURD. But IF they knew of all the cases I among a few others I work with get on a daily basis they would be tearing up our streets, because it's a PATTERN of outright judicial and systematic abuses that defy ALL COMMON SENSE. And they ARE targeting Children, Teens and ESPECIALY young girls, not just in our criminal courts, but our family courts are Rife with court ordered horrific child abuse, so Something is going on that's far more than just the occasional stupid judge or DA, this is SYSTEMATIC,

And it is eerily similar to the Fuedal age of dark popes and WITCHHUNTS flourishing in an age of out right LAZINESS and STUPIDITY, and that's in BOTH political camps. I see it in the Libtards and the neocontard side.

People think, oh nothing to fear from these zealous boots but I digress, they need to go back and read up on some history, like Tsarist Russia when serfs could be tortured for OMG.....drum roll...

Owning a COOKBOOK! :0. Why didn't ya know, those eeeeeevvvviiiilll. Cookbooks have magic spells and Spy codes in them that could get those serf minions to THINK and not bow before the Nobles who rob and starve them!!!

People don't know that in many totalitarian nations, a woman can be beaten for wearing Mascare and that daily when she goes in public there are Moral police that YES, check those eyes to see if witchy poo cloaked in that dangerous black tempting VOODOO mascara...they think it's ony the most glaring things that are policed, WRONG,

Don't you DARE eat an ice cream cone in Saudi little lady why That's being seductive...I mean talk about being forced to live the LIVING DEAD, while the barons lap up the freedoms in their lofty towers over in Dubai (using as example) the poor slaves get to bask in dry stale bread and moldy cabbage...and they had better be Thankful for,

THAT'S what this crap will lead up to if it's not nipped in the bud. But what really angers me, is when they attack EDUCATION and LEARNING, because I grew up in libraries and reading and at my old age I still am learning, in fact learning chemistry because I sucked at it in school (still do) but life and how it works is fascinating...I would Rather see young women LEARNING and being INTERESTED IN SCIENCE than in make up and being f **dolls...

And they just Told this young girl, that Science is to be punished, I would love to gather a lynch mob of women scientists and beat those pigs and DAs down who charged her...because THEY deserve it. And then send them with a One way ticket to Saudi or some other Fundie place where they are forced to live in an ultra conservative war mongering dark ages land...they would live it there, they can stone kids and police civilians for daring to ride bikes or eating...

An ice cream cone. The bloody morons...I hate them, I really do. We need a revolution, an Age of Enlightenment, Something, because we are being thrust Backwards in time and not in a good way.

As for the safety of experiment, etc., a REAL EDUCATIVE SYSTEM (not this stupid assanine joke of backwards Plutocracy) yes the

Young girl should have bee reprimanded, THEN taught some Ethical responsibility about science experiments. As punishment she should have been made to clean up labs, etc., community service, possibly at her school THEN signed up to a GIFTED SCIENCE PROGRAM...now THAT'S what an

Intelligent DA and school would have done.

But Niw we have RETARDS, both socially and EDUCATIVE pushing STUDENTS into a dark dumb ass abyss. So,

Then we can Expect the developing nations to soon kick our dumb asses in SPACE TECH and MEDICINE with REAL CURES not brain damaging snake oil by big pharma, and we can bask in our

THIRD WORLD STATUS

Unbelievable

Please note that this is not my definition of explosion, it comes from other sources which appear to be well informed. Also note that under your definition, nuclear explosions and supernova blasts don't qualify as explosions, which frankly doesn't make sense.

Not to split hair, you made a fair point, but still...
