<p>:)))</p>
<p>Great for someone who likes counter strike</p>
<p>Simple and great idea! :D</p>
<p>You probably won't get invited to the White House if you bring this to school.</p><p>You should avoid Irving, Texas also.</p>
<p>Thanks for the tutorial!</p>
<p>you bunch of sad paranoid people, firearms, explosives and weapons are all fun. I'm 51 years old and have been making my own pyrotechnic fireworks for years, have had my concealed carry permit for just as long, stop living in fear of everything and have some explosive fun, you will love it.</p>
<p>awesome!</p>
<p>Ok look, this is a project idea meant to be something fun and cool. If someone took it as far as to make it a weapon then it is entirely their fault. Don't dis on the creator of this instructable. If you have a problem with this just don't make it, or don't have your kids make it. I think it is a fun project. We don't have to freak out. There is no plural of children since children is the plural of child.</p>
<p>Switch this out with someone's regular alarm clock while the are sleeping. They are sure to get a surprise when it starts beeping, especially if they are groggy.</p>
<p>best/funnyest i've seen in a long time! I'm making several for me and my friends. Some of you clowns need to lighten up!</p>
<p>BEAUTIFUL, THANKS FOR THE SUICIDAL-BOMBER SETUP, JUST A LITTLE TWEEKING TO FIT AROUND MY WAIST/STOMACH, PERFECT!!</p>
As a child I can tell you that no violent ideas were put into my head when I saw this. Explosives aren't necessarily dangerous unless used in a irresponsible way. If a child decides that explosive devices could be used as a weapon, there is no way even if got their hands on one they would think of hurting someone unless they were taught that it was okay. Clearly the child you used in your example where he blew up his mom's boyfriend had problems and wasn't thinking straight and probably should have been put in therapy. Explosives are used for much more than violence such as building roads/train tracks, mining, destroying old buildings to put up new ones, and many other NON VIOLENT uses. This is a very creative
<p>Leaving an empty box in an inappropriate place is a bad idea. I think it's cool. Most of you think owning a side arm is OK. Lighten up. I think having the Oil companies screwing us is more of a deal. </p>
<p>Just what is the problem with thinking a side arm is OK? I have carried a firearm 24/7 for over thirty years. All of my guns COMBINED have killed fewer people than Ted Kennedy's car. I don't think my house or car is going top catch fire or otherwise be destroyed, but I carry insurance on both and both are equipped with a fire extinguisher. I have seen many suspicious packages cause response by authorities, but I don't ever remember one of these faux bombs cause one. People are a lot smarter than you give them credit for.</p>
<p>Sounds like you NEED to carry a sidearm to survive .</p>
<p>ac-dc NOPE we don't see them arresting for things like this, not enough pzazz! But, we DO see the dead bodies of 15 YO's with paintball guns. You ARE one so you defend them but in reality, COPS KILL out of FEAR! F-alse E-vidence A-ppearing R-eal - - - to THEM! Their daily dose of fear-mongering causes this situation where ANYTHING can set them off and they DO respond without THOUGHT and with bullets - they are cheap.</p><p>I once had a cop ask if I had any weapons on me. I said &quot;You deefine what you mean by weapons and then I can answer.&quot; He NEVER answered! Why? Because ANYTHING can be used as a weapon and IF I had said no, the pen in my shirt pocket would have 'authorized' him to arrest me for lying to him.</p><p>In TEXAS, all cops are criminals. None of the STATE OFFICERS are in compliance with the Texas Constitution Article 16 which authorizes their authority, therefore, you can legally &quot;use deadly force to protect yourself,your property, someone else, or their property&quot; from kidnapping or theft. An unlawful arrest is KIDNAPPING in Texas. When they are in possession of a weapon it is AGGRAVATED KIDNAPPING!</p>
<p>Bill, did your parents have any kids who lived? Your perceptive of facts is as flawed as your painting all Texas officers with the same brush. Your pitiful acronym for fear is preposterous. Have you ever been a police officer, security officer or even so much as attended a citizen's academy? Gangs have younger children all the time carrying around drugs, guns and the like, because they know that the justice system will go very easy on them. A 7-year old kid with a Glock can kill you just as dead as a Jihadist with an AK47.. Your analysis that unlawful arrests are kidnapping is patently ridiculous. Have you ever graduated from law school or passed the bar in Texas or any other state? Sound to me like you never passed a bar you didn't like. Who determines whether an arrest is lawful, You? No, that is determined by a County or District Attorney, AFTER thoroughly going over the statements of all concerned and possible witnesses. I never arrested anyone who felt that I was right, so did that allow them to resist? I should say not. I am so sick of amateur lawyers like you who make the job of a lawman harder every day by spreading your BS better than a McCormick manure spreader. I originally flagged this rant of yours, but I could not have commented on it then. I have looked down the barrel of more than one firearm and found out the meaning of the words pucker power. You, jerkoff, cannot say that with a straight face.</p>
<p>You , sir , have too much time on your hands and I don't think too many people want to read your rantings . </p><p>Cheers , take care , and have a good day !!</p>
<p>.... Do you &quot;REALLY&quot; want to test the Texas cops on this point?? I would think you would be the one to be &quot;dead&quot; right!</p>
<p>You muricans are so funny! If someone builds this sweet alarm clock he/she will risk being shot by the police...you must be the most scared people in the world. I actually feel sorry for you and hope that you some day will experience true freedom: not being afraid all the time. </p><p>I live in a country where very few people (only hunters and members of gun clubs) are allowed to own weapons and not even ten people a year get shot by the police, most of them live to tell the tale. This in a country of around 9 million people. </p>
<p>You have come to accept being denied the ability to defend yourself, and rationalize it by stating few people are shot by police. This insults me A. As an AMERICAN, B as a former police officer, and C As a proud supporter of our Second Amendment to the constitution. FYI, I do not live in fear all the time. Your country has about the same number of people as New York City. I am underwhelmed by you feeling sorry for someone better than you. A man without a gun is a subject; a man with a gun is a citizen. I recommend you find a documentary put out by Jews for the Preservation of Firearm Ownership, called 'Innocents Betrayed.' It tells of the over 17 million people disarmed by their governments, then brutally slaughtered by those selfsame governments. Our current occupant (illegally) in the White House is doing his best to disarm us, exactly the kind of situation or Founding Fathers gave us the gift of the Second Amendment for. I am sick enough to puke hearing foreigners criticizing our gun ownership. I don't give a fat rat's behind what your country's gun laws are, and I hope your government never decides to eradicate people it considers bad, that is called genocide, by the way. You have no right whatsoever to badmouth American gun ownership, because you do not know what you are talking about.</p>
<p>I have no problem with gun ownership at all . But responsible use of guns or explosives is very important . </p>
<p>Great discussion. Lot of holier than thou's on this.</p>
<p>Holier than thous ? sounds like you ! </p><p>Cheers , and take care !!</p>
<p>This really is a bad, bad idea to put on Instructables. How long before some idiot leaves one of these at a school or other public place &quot;just for fun&quot;. I find it hard to believe that there is no oversight by Instructables on stuff like this. I suspect the FBI or other Feds wouldn't think this is so clever.</p>
<p>Man, this is an alarm clock! </p><p>If you think is better to have censorship or a police state, try living in a dictatorship with those.</p>
<p>&quot;It's just an alarm clock.&quot; And Tamir Rice was just holding a toy gun.</p><p>Here's a thought. Build one of these and put it in your carry-on bag next time you fly to a vacation spot. Then explain to the TSA that it's just an alarm clock.</p>
<p>FYI, Rice was holding an Airsoft pistol. Airsoft makes a full line of pistols, shotguns, rifles and submachine guns that are very faithful copies of the real item. The law requires an orange part on the muzzle to indicate that it is not a real firearm. Rice had removed the orange piece, making it look like a real gun. I once almost blew a teen's brains out because he pulled out what appeared to be a 1911 .45ACP pistol in a crowded restaurant and was waving it around and pointing it at people. He thought it was cute, but I am sure the McDonald's crew would have hated to wash his brains off the menu card. It is the idiots who pull crap like this that are the problem, not the trained response of professional lawmen who perceive idiotic stuff like this a real danger.</p>
<p>Well .... the orange thingie on the tip of a gun , in my eyes , doesn't really mean anything . If a criminal/terrorist put an orange thingie on the tip of a REAL gun , would they get to the point that they murder people because everyone thinks that their weapon is a harmless toy ? Maybe so . </p>
<p>Agreed, this is a free country and free internet (with few exceptions). It's a clock and a fun idea. If someone does decide to use this instructable in a negative way, the consequences will be done to that person.</p>
Oh dear. I was thinking the exact same thing. Instructables will be getting a bill from some bomb squad for sure. <br>Sorry to say this is the world we live in today.
<p>What would make you think they would be liable for someone's intent?</p>
All it takes is one over zealous lawyer. <br>Seriously, I agree with everyone's comments about an open internet. All I'm saying is just be carful what you build and understand the consequences of building items like this.
<p>Get a grip! I have one word for you, DECAF. My sergeant, when I was a deputy sheriff, had one of these on his desk, along with a WWII hand grenade with a tag on the pin that said, &quot;Complaint Department Take a Number, with a tag marked 1&quot; this is a gag, and anyone who can't tell this from real dynamite is too dumb to live without a keeper. It must really suck to go through life with no sense of humor.</p>
Better this than a real one.
<p>Dude, if someone wanted to make a fake bomb &quot;just for fun&quot;, they didn't need instructables. How many dozens of movies have used a bunch of road flares taped together as fake dynamite? Stop raining on the parade.</p>
<p>Umm, you do realize that this would be a VERY antiquated way to make any type of bomb.</p>
<p>Nice!</p>
<p>Haha, keren, amazing banget</p>
<p>This is Awesome!</p>
I will just leave this here: <br> <br>Texas Penal Code-- <br> <br>46.08. Hoax Bombs <br>(a) A person commits an offense if the person knowingly manufactures, sells, purchases, trans- ports, or possesses a hoax bomb with intent to use the hoax bomb to: <br>(1) make another believe that the hoax bomb is an explosive or incendiary device; or <br>(2) cause alarm or reaction of any type by an official of a public safety agency or volunteer agency organized to deal with emergencies. <br>(b) An offense under this section is a Class A misdemeanor. <br> <br>(13) &quot;Hoax bomb&quot; means a device that: <br>(A) reasonably appears to be an explosive or incendiary device; or <br>(B) by its design causes alarm or reaction of any type by an official of a public safety agency or a volunteer agency organized to deal with emergencies. ... <br> <br>Your intention may be innocent but building something like this might get you into a sticky legal situation. The onus would be on you to prove in court that it was not your intention to &quot;cause alarm&quot;.
<p>So if you were to specifically label that it wasn't in legible writing, would you still get in trouble?</p>
<p>I think if this is just kept in the builder's house, it's perfectly legal ... but I definitely would NOT be giving this to others, even as a prank. Someone could definitely get the wrong idea. And airports or other public transportation ... don't even THINK of it unless you enjoy being surrounded by SWAT and/or US Marshalls!</p><p>Great advice with the legal cite above ...</p>
Aren't laws like this great? <br> <br>Section 13 basically reads: &quot;(13)A 'hoax bomb' is a device that (B) alarms a cop&quot; <br> <br>It gives way too much room to abuse. A crooked cop can arrest or shoot whoever they want, and say he/she saw the defendant/deceased reaching for a bomb. Bombs can be made to look like anything, therefore anything can look like a bomb.
<p>Nope, there's a world of difference between your confused idea that anything can be considered a bomb and deliberately trying to make something look like one.</p><p>The key here is whether the situation in which law enforcement finds itself in, is one the general public would be threatened by. The general public carries books around for example, so they would not tolerate a police officer concluding a book was a bomb with no other evidence to suggest it. The general public does not go out of their way to make non-bomb objects look like authentic bombs.</p><p>Laws like this ARE great. It is better for officers to have a little discretion than to try to legislate every tiny little thing that could be thought of before hand, and to reduce the number of loopholes that let people who do make bombs, go free. If as you suggested the law was too broad then we would be seeing an excessive number of arrests made in error but personally I have never heard of anyone being arrested for this reason with the exception of some goofy adolescent who made their t-shirt into an electronics project and wore it to an airport, which was a pretty stupid thing to do after 9/11.</p>
