    And a lot of other nasties too. From pick up this Radio, tread on this floorboard, open this cupboard, flush this toilet...and be blasted to hell. But it was the Land Mines and M90 Jump Ups that finally stopped me picking up my pay cheque. M26 Fragmentation Hand Grenades could perhaps get you some rabbit stew, if you were prepared to spit the notched segments out. Demolition Charges, once set by a detonator, a timing device or Plunger connection, could get you entry to a night Club. As for 81mm Mortars, one could certainly stir up the neighbours in the next street. Even if the Tail Fin ended up in one piece shrapnel would level your shrub bed.

    You see, this is what comes from a desire to contribute something towards the winning of a battle in some far off land, but dosen't disturb my tomatoe growing after a nice dinner in the comfort of my home. So when the blood started to show on my dinner napkin I decided that enough was enough, let other people be robots and build weapons of mass destruction, I'll comfort the sick and nature Good Will amongst all men. No weapons. No conflict. Simple as that. Why was the spear first invented? To kill animals for food? Or was it first made to attack or defend against someone who maybe was raising a little dust?

    So where would we be without weapons? Without even wooden clubs? Is the tongue mightier than the sword? Or do you fancy making a few Phosporus Shells or Bombs? I can show you how. westwind.

    Hi westwind, that's some topic you got there. I know the spear was made for purposes such as hunting for food, defending and attacking but it all depends on the mentality of the person holding the weapon. The human mind is a wonderful and mysterious thing that cannot be explained as the human mind projects wave lengths as well. Read on it if you like if you haven't yet. As for experience, i'll share the fact that i played with medium grade thermite and small explosives under watchful supervision. It was quite fun making metal disappear into thin air and watching things explode.

    Currently i'm working on another project. What do you know about magnetic fields and controlling the amount absorbed from it and projected out from a device?

    Dear Sci-Research. Sounds like Mobile Phone activation . Roadside Improvised Explosive Device. Through The Science Forum, if you feel you would like a change of Career, away from the nasties I mean, I could probably fit you up for a course in Viticulture.. Now, you being young, this is a better way to go. Make old westwinds day, and keep you busy so that you never have to poste on a Military Forum again. westwind.

    I found myself involved with nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles during the Cold War and had to quit. What seemed patriotic at first revealed itself to be insanity (MAD – Mutually-Assured Destruction).

    I could try that, but i do these experiments as a hobby not for anything serious. Anyway, i know that by creating a magnetic field you are able to harness the power from the magnetic field and use it for other purposes. Mobile phone activation is something small for this sort of experiment. Making RIED's is something i'm not into making. I'm looking more at creating electricity and using it to power devices such as light bulbs, ipods, walkie talkies, etc.. wirelessly. Have you heard of unlimited energy resource? You could basically power up an entire army of robots using the technique. No more needing for batteries ay?

    I miss playing with things like ammonium nitrate cratering charges... How to ruin a perfectly good runway with a bang... C-4 always popular with the ladies... I love things that go boom and the bigger the better... I enjoy the celluloid visions I have seen of the biggest most terrifying explosions... Nuclear weapons... There is a terrifying majesty in that ominous mushroom cloud and yet so much beauty as well...

    Or perhaps I am just insane... Always a possibility

    High grade stuff? The most high grade stuff i played with was medium grade thermite. i could of went with high grade thermite as it burns more quicker and is more brighter since it has airfloat AP. But i went with courser AP stuff. The thermite still burns but takes awhile longer than high grade. Have you played with Thermal imaging? I can't wait to try that and the heart beat sensor experiment. Been wanting to build them for ages.

    I find this argument oddly similar to arguments of religion and philosophy. Except it is without the soup of BS that is usually seen in religious/philosophical arguments so at least I know that it is possible for us humans to find a consensus for this.
    With bravery and recognition that we are harbingers of our destiny and with a paragon of virtue.

    Japith, curious of your take on the topic. Does your avatar indicate you also work in this field, or is it more of a fascination with how crazy humanity gets? (Don't feel compelled to answer publicly--or at all-- if you'd rather not.)
