Erm well why was he dipping his chewing gum in things in chemistry anyway?

I mean what happened to him was horrible and everything but why didn't he use his common sense or for that matter why didn't anyone around him notice what he was doing and stop him? And why wasn't the teacher paying attention?

Erm. Wow. 0.o
Is it bad to find it a little ironic that it was a chemistry student...?

Yet another example of how stupid humans can be. That's quite terrible, but, it was his own fault?
I wonder what the other unknown substance was..."an explosive substance". Is that even legal to possess?

Maybe you should read the article before commenting next time

Poor guy though, not entirely his fault but it could have been easily avoided. People are stupid, it's a fact of life.

Wow that was weird. I feel sorry for the kid and his family. That really sucks... what a strange, awful way to die.

I'm a bit confused as to why he had some explosive substance next to him in his home unless he was doing some experiments with an explosive substance at home.

I would assume he was doing what teenage guys do. Have you never experimented with making home-made cap bombs or smoke bombs? Sometimes you use household substances, sometimes pick up some potassiuim nitrate. Most of the time it's harmless. Not condoning it of course, but just saying that's probably why he had the stuff.

I think it's pretty stupid how he is a chemisty student yet didn't realise the substance was in fact explosive. You'd think you'd check these things instead of using unknown substances to save things like this really.

But, I guess if they can take his idea and make it so they don't have to chew it for it to exploded, we'd have a ton of 007's in the army.

Citric acid can help trigger Explosions?

Citric acid didn't cause the explosion. An unknown substance which he confused with citric acid did.

This is what happens when you chew the gum from mission impossible.


Often I lie wide awake, thinking of things I could make.
But I donít seem to have the parts to build them.
I am so scared of what will kill me in the end, for I am not prepared.
I hope I will get the chance to be someone, to be human.

After reading the article, I get the vibe that he didn't do this by accident..

..If I'm right, then I give him an A+ for originality.

I actually find this extremely funny. Don't get me wrong, I feel sorry for the guy. But as a gum chewer myself, once you are used to to taste of it, you automatically notice if the gum even smells wrong before you start chewing it. Plus doesn't citric acid have a certain smell or colour to it? This doesn't seem like an accident to me.

What the heck? Did he put it on there? Maybe it was the terrorists.
Anyway, Was he trying to kill himself? That doesn't seem likely? Was it a moment of stupidity? So many questions.
