Dear "Le Chimiste" <totoboom$##$hotmail.com>

- Do you really know what you are doing? Crystalline acetone peroxide is
extremely explosive when dry. A couple of years ago a student here lost his
hand. He took a few grams to a party to show off. I saw him on the TV last
year - he had actually lost his whole hand at the wrist.

To mis-cite Braveheart:

     "All men die, but some men die sooner."
