If only we had a background check and waiting period for purchases of Coke and Mentos these things wouldn't happen.

Bombs don't kill people, people kill people. What about our 2nd Amendment rights?

Maybe they'll be able to get jobs at the Lab someday. Sounds like they have talent. :)

They probably learned about the chemicals in science class. The issue here is that the kids probably didn't realize it is a felony. Talking to my 17 year old, he knew it was "wrong" but not a felony or what "a felony" meant. If parents don't explain laws and what they mean to the kids, how are the kids suppose to know. Nevermind that their brains aren't developed enough to make "reasonable" decisions like this. Maybe science classes should come with a disclaimer .....
