    That’s because explosives don’t blow up buildings, drunken explosives engineers do.

    As if I needed another reason to move to Aspinwall!

    That makes sense. People may have one or the other but not both. Any plan to combine stiff drinks with high explosives usually goes to pieces rather suddenly.

  6. Martin the Mess says:

    When one hears “Hey, y’all, hold my beer and watch this,” one knows to run for cover, preferably in a different county entirely, for someone is about to do something profoundly stupid and face substantial risk to life and limb.

    When one hears “Hey, y’all, hold this commercial-grade mining explosive and watch this,” one cranes their neck for a closer view, for someone is clearly very sensibly setting aside a dangerous material to safely investigate some item or activity of profound interest to all and sundry.
