Put together a proposal for TSA:
To determine if, using off-the-shelf components, it is in fact possible to formulate a two-component liquid explosive in a garage lab.My upcoming travel brings this to mind.
My government currently believes that my mouthwash, toothpaste, and deodorant are potential weapons, and requires that I carry on only small (3 oz) containers of each, clearly displayed in a ziploc bag.
After the hoopla surrounding an alleged terror plot in Britain involving 2-component liquid explosives, TSA decided to be prudent: "Better safe than sorry."
I'm simply curious: is this scenario plausible?
Can a two-component liquid explosive be assembled from off-the-shelf components in a garage lab?
[full disclosure: McGyver notwithstanding, my a priori belief is, "No".]
Stop the madness!
