RE: [Histonet] Picric acid

From:"Cheri Miller"

As a new supervisor and new employee, I just last month had the bomb Squad
remove a very dry jar of picric acid 25 yrs old!  And it did go boom when
they detonated it. I was happy to discover it was also free of charge. Nice
to know those high taxes pay for more than street repair!!( chuck hole city)
