  2. I’m no gun expert, but if you water down the gunpowder, isn’t it rendered useless at that point?

  4. KNW,

    Making gunpowder’s a lot harder than this guy thinks it is. It would take quite a while for the resultant mixture to dry, and then he’d have to break/grind it all back up again.

    He might as well have carried a rusty nail and some aluminum filings and claimed he successfully snuck some thermite on board.
