  •  Bat Shit crazy (2+ / 0-)

    The press paid the most attention to the explosion when they were speculating about the possibility that it was terrorism. Our local news interviewed a prof. from the local university as their expert. I forget what his department was but he didn't think this explosion could possibly have been an accident because of all the regulations they were required to follow. I kept thinking yeah, right, as if they could be bothered.

    Now on about bat shit: Bat shit contains ammonium nitrate. At this same university, they have a distribution process to give it away to the general public. (They have a couple of very large bat houses). The shit is stored in a a secured location. You can call and show up with a lidded bucket, up to 5 gallons. They will take your bucket and fill it up for you. You have to sign for it and receive warning that you need to use a dust mask to handle it dry. They take their work seriously and the materials are far less dangerous.
