C-4 Explosives: $13.25/lb (in bulk)
Military Contracts, Sept. 12 2003


"BAE Systems Ordnance Systems Inc., Kingsport, Tenn., was awarded on Sept. 9, 2003, a delivery order amount of $7,248,333 as part of a $13,012,261 firm-fixed-price contract for manufacture of 982,159 pounds of composition C-4, Class 3 (tagged) explosives."


That's roughly $13.25 per pound. Cheaper than crab, some times of the year. Just found it interesting.

1. Amazing, isn't it?

God's greatest abominations would rather blow things up than to find ways to feed the starving. (and crabmeat is needless as there are other sea-based life forms that taste the same but cost less. Though if people want to eat crab, I suppose that's okay. It's just a shame the crab can't speak up beforehand! :evilgrin: )
