DON'T PICK UP WATER BOTTLES - Please Read
Â Â Â
Yes, I would pick up a bottle in my front yard or in the mailbox. Wouldnâ€™t You? But not anymore, thanks to this email I received. Pass this on to everybody you know. Anybody that sees a plastic bottle in their yard would think nothing of picking it up to throw it away.
It looks like these things are starting to pop up around the U.S. Check the Snopes web site below, it's pretty scary.
Important warning! NOT A JOKE! Pay attention to this.
1. A plastic bottle with a cap (Like a normal water bottle).
2. A little Drano.
3. A little water.
4.. A small piece of foil.
5. Disturb it by moving it; and BOOM (Less than 30 seconds)!!
6. No fingers left and other serious effects to your face, eyes, etc. People are finding these bombs in mailboxes and in their yards, just waiting for someone to pick it up intending to put it in the trash.
It takes about 30 seconds to blow after you move the thing.
Check this out on Snopes. It is true....!
