    Something wrong with that story. Even a quarter stick would have removed more than her fingers, much less left them mangled. And dynamite I've worked with required a blasting cap, in which the fuse was inserted. Large fire cracker maybe, 2 inch or better.

    Sounds like BS to me.

    They call the big firecrackers 1/4 stick due to the size. They are just M80 or M100's, black powder and cardboard.
    If they let the Mexicans making those have nitro glycerin, they would drink it rather than put it in the firecracker. My great uncle had some fused dynamite, but he said all the nitro had sweated out of it so it was useless.

    I have no experience with fused blasting caps, but the electronic versions will do the damage reported in this story, let alone accompanied by a 1/4 stick....I grew up with a family that ran their own sawmill and had dynamite around to blow through the occasional obstruction to a clean logging road.

    Cops: Man Duped Caregivers Into Diaper Changes

    http://thesmokinggun.com/documents/bizarre/dirty-diaper-ruse-265938

    The first caregiver told police that she bathed Menchaca and changed his diaper on about 30 occasions. The woman told police that Menchaca occasionally complained “aggressively” that his genitals “were not cleaned enough,” which prompted her to wipe them “more thoroughly.” The caregiver added that Menchaca "had an erection every time his diaper was changed and when he was bathed."

    I heard that on the radio this morning during the 'Dumb Crook of the Day' segment. I thought, what sort of sick person would find pleasure in having someone clean up and change you after making a big boom boom in your diaper? Then I remembered California.

    Yes, TD, all of us here would rather you stopped visiting.
    People look at what all the east coast tourists do in SF and think it is what CA is all about.

    Is that what they're calling the homeless now? East coast tourists?

    I suppose some of them are - going for the warm winters and free handouts.

    Actually, the number is close to 80% that are from out of state. Many of them do come here believing the handout and easy life stories, only to find a difficult and dangerous life in a place unsuited for the unskilled and unmotivated.

    What is the number of people who think Ribby's post makes sense?

    Florida seems to attract homeless also - weather related I suppose as the state doesn't seem to have the same "freestuff" reputation. Much more comfortable and survivable to be hot rather than cold.
