49. 20 Ounces of What?
That's the question. As someone with expertise in the field of explosives (as i said above, a chemist and training by A.C.E. in this specific field), i know there are materials that could create one heck of a bang at 20 ounces.

The problem is that making, isolating, handling, fabricating, and transporting these things in a surreptitious way creates a myriad of difficulties that are hardly simple to overcome.

So, my skepticism is not based upon whether something can blow a plane up. It's whether these 24 guys had the skill, knowledge, and stealth to actually carry out their silly bravado-based plans. Talking about it and doing it are two VERY different things.
