sorry ben...the film probably would have been good...but i felt it was my duty as an annoying teenager to not only ignore the entire film (because i might have learnt something from it) but also to disrupt the rest of the class 2:) but, i do have to admit i have seen the film before and actually (shock horror) enjoyed it!!! my mother would also like to add that she loves traffaut's films!!! thanx 4 the great class!!! frm alice

actually, i wasn't thinking of you as being particularly lost on the film. so you were probably better at hiding it than some of the others. (a few of the younger ones, i think.) oh, and the teaching assistant. she said it was too intense for her, which, y'know, says something about her.

anyhow, glad you liked the workshop, and welcome to the livejournal.

blood and guts and so forth is always a good way to get the interest of people, even if *other* teachers will think otherwise, and might sit around worrying that you'll all become terrorists because you write violent things.

i can't think of anything right now, though, cause it's too early in the morning for that kinda thought. later.

Re:
pls also remember, from the FAQ:

"Is the Anarchist Cookbook safe and accurate?

No. According to people who know explosives, it contains many dangerous errors and formulas that are likely to hurt you. People strongly advise to stay away from it if you enjoy having your limbs.

If you want to read it just for entertainment or to impress friends with it, however, go ahead. I thought it was rather silly and contained a lot of tedious 60's political rhetoric. I'd suggest saving your money, but buy it if you want.

Also note that kids regularly blind, maim, deafen, or kill themselves or their friends by playing around with pipe bombs and other explosives. Please avoid this, as it will not only mess up your life and upset your parents, but also motivates laws against the Internet and professional pyrotechnicians.

A few safety tips to think about: a) Constantly ask yourself: what would happen to me if this mixture blew up _right_now_, say from static electricity? b) Look at a .22 and consider that the fraction of a gram of gunpowder in this could kill you thousands of feet away. Admittedly a gun is a special case, but the point is that a little bit of explosive can fling deadly bits of metal long distances at you. c) You don't need high explosives to hurt yourself; people get themselves killed with match heads, gasoline, or gunpowder."
