Just heard the plot....
They were going to combine liquids in a sports drink bottle and use a disposable flash bulb to ignite it. Heard on the news break during Thom Hartmann show.

4. I know! That is what popped into my mind too!
Why don't they just confiscate all the disposable cameras?

2. A plastic sports drink bottle?
Well, it would be loud, but probably not much else. The bottle would probably burst before enough pressure built up to cause any real damage.

Welcome, femmocrat, but please check the very specific rules for LBN. They prevent that forum from getting irreparably clogged...

6. Here's a source for the stuff. It's apparently legal in the States.
The article even mentions what happens to a plastic container. You can't set it off with a flashbulb, though.

Tannerite explosive

Give me a second, I just heard somebody at my front door... *&%#^**!$$#...... <carrier lost>

15. we used to make up a mix of something in a bottle to shoot and explode
laundry detergent and something else. Maybe some sort of fuel oil? Can't remember but yes, it was stuff that you could find in many homes normally. Don't think it worked with a flashbulb or MP3 player, nothing to do with sports drinks, but it is possible to make up nasty stuff at home. Do NOT ever use chlorine cleanser and ammonia as toxic gas is released. Seriously, do not use there 2 products at the same time to clean.
