In a local news story yesterday, two teens were arrested for blowing up
mailboxes. Seems the pesky little buggers were using 2 liter soda
bottles with "a chemical inside" to make a bomb. They are facing charges.

Here's a newspaper quote (before they were found):

Soda-bottle explosives in mailboxes investigated

State police and U.S. Postal Service inspectors are investigating recent
acts of vandalism to rural mailboxes in the Oneida County towns of
Holland Patent, Remsen, Floyd and Marcy. Troopers said the mailboxes
were blown up by explosive devices contained in plastic two-liter soda
bottles.

The Postal Service is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading
to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for these crimes. Call
state police at 736-0121 or postal inspectors in Syracuse at 452-3520.

Just food for thought...

p.s. would enough vinegar and baking soda generate enough gas to build
up enough pressure?
