26. I use batteries in every day life.
It doesn't take a bomb expert to understand that when batteries blow up, they don't flatten buildings. It's explosives that do that. One doesn't have to be a warmongering fascist republican to understand basic electronics, physics, and chemistry. Just a rational, literate adult.
