9 volt bat would work, now tell us why and for what use was this made?? to sell to the Al CIA AId ?
The British Defense Ministry under its commercial attachment Qinetiq has patented an ink-jet cartridge having explosive ink as its content recently. The explosive ink mixture consists of aluminum particles with each having 1 micrometer diameter, copper oxide particles having width of 5 micrometer, alcohol and epoxy varnish. Now you may feel that such a mixture is not ideal for paper printing. That's not the case! This explosive ink is in the form of stable liquid as most of the inks are and can be used for printing on the regular paper as well. The only difference between other inks and explosive ink is that it turns into a fuse once it dries. When wet it is stable and when dried it can act as an explosive if a current is passed through the metal strip.
Seriously, you guys got to keep this stuff on the down low. Next thing you know you will be sitting in the Moscow airport. And it wont be on a layover.

Sounds like premise of the film Live Wire (1992)
In the film, terrorists have developed a liquid explosive which is activated within the human body.
I guess they are now mining Hollywood for ideas on news stories involving spectacular terrorist plots.

Ok for something to explode it has to be chemically unstable and the resulting instability has to cause a massive change reaction that results in a lot of energy being released. So, according to the government, the terrorists have invented a fluid that causes the chemically stable bonds in fabric (which fabrics? Cotton? Silk? Polyester? Synthetic?) to become unstable and therefore explode. This would make more sense if just the fluid was chemically unstable, but that would be silly because we already have that. It's called nitroglycerin.
I'm going to go ahead and call shenanigans on the government. All one needs is a high school chemistry's knowledge to call out this idiocy.edit on 7-8-2013 by Krazysh0t because: (no reason given)
Imagine you've boarded a plane for that vacation you've been planning. The kids, spouse, and maybe some friends are with you.
The plane levels off at 10.000 ft. Time to relax and enjoy the flight...
FOOMM!!! A guy coming back from the restroom bursts into flames and tries to rush the cockpit. In shock the passengers panic. The whole event gets put on the internet.
The guy gets taken down and put out, and outside of a few burns and cuts from this guy, no body else is physically harmed. Upon landing the flame guy is taken into custody, and everyone goes on their marry way.
A week later your vacation is over, and it's time to fly back home.

From the Rippley's Beleive it or Not files, the government has come out with its latest wild claim to keep us in fear of those wiley "terrorists" who are out to get us.
Report: Al-Qaida developed liquid that turns clothes into explosives
An Al-Qaida affiliate has developed a new generation of liquid explosive that U.S. officials fear could be used in a future attack, ABC News reported Monday.
Two senior U.S. government sources who have been briefed on the terror threat that prompted the U.S. to close embassies across the Mideast and North Africa this week, told the network that clothes dipped in the liquid become explosive devices when dry.
One of the U.S. officials described the new generation explosive as "ingenious," while another said it would be undetectable under current security processes.
The liquid explosive is believed to be the brainchild of the Yemen-based affiliate Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), the officials told ABC News. This affiliate is home to Ibrahim al-Asiri, a master bombmaker, who was on the 25 "most wanted terrorist" list published by the Yemeni government.
Their claim about what the "terrorists" can do are getting wilder every day. I think if this were possible, The US or Russia would have developed it during the Cold War or some other brilliant scientist out there would have figured out how to do it long ago. Some guy hunkered down in a secret bunker, hiding from the drones somewhere having the time and resources to develop something like this just doesn't seem believable.
Buy hey, whatever wild stories they can spin to keep the public afraid and wanting to be spied on works I guess. If enough people buy into this one, we'll all have to get nekkid if we want to travel in the near future.
