24. When They're Immersed. . .
. . .they don't detonate. That's how the mass transport is facilitated in industry. Lots of explosive crystals are handled that way. (Most detonation initiators are crystals that can individually detonate if they are just a little too big!) In suspension, or in solution, they will not generate the molcular propogation necessary to detonate. That's why they move them around in slurries. It prevents tragic accidents in industry.

BTW: You do know that when Reid was caught, even the experts, using military detonators could not get his device to explode. It was destroyed because the detonators simply inicinerated the device. The device itself did not detonate.
