Ok fine, the warehouse has a 1megaton nuke under the floor, the tilt mechanism sets off the device.

Yes Im still including the tilt. For extra security ;)

Sure, if you have this level of knowledge of an encryption process, of course you can crack it. Its analogous to saying "If you watch someone type in their password, you can figure out what their password is."

Well, bang goes my thoughts of suggesting we use a fulminate-impregnated paper. Dropping that idea, then.

*bang*

…told you.


Can I interest you in this frozen block of FOOF instead?

War and Peace = random stuff
Classic internet XD


C4 is reasonably stable (it can’t be detonated accidentally). Just carve whatever you want to be private into a block of it, and set it up to detonate if somebody comes a-snoopin. In fact, I bet you could roll it out into sheets (thicker than paper) and print onto them...

I only mentioned war and peace because it’s a long book — which means more filler.

Urm... you do know how the Munroe effect, the principle behind a shaped charge, was discovered, right?

Wikipedia wrote:The Munroe effect is named after Charles E. Munroe, who discovered it in 1888. As a civilian chemist working at the U.S. Naval Torpedo Station at Newport, Rhode Island, he noticed that when a block of explosive guncotton with the manufacturer's name stamped into it was detonated next to a metal plate, the lettering was cut into the plate.

You might just end up carving your message indelibly into the floor.

I have never said no to that question.

Oh, I do know about that. I just didn’t think about it... That would be pretty funny. Maybe the idea of making C4 sheets and printing on them normally is the better one.
