Life in New Britain - like one very long very bad movie


Plot Summary for Live Wire (1992), possibly one of Pierce Brosnan's worst films - scoring 5.3/10 on the IMDB, which is bad for a film but actually very good in a General or Presidential Election...

Danny O'Neill is a bomb disposal expert assigned to a case where terrorists have developed an "invisible" liquid explosive which is activated within the human body. The target of the terrorists are US senators, one of which is having an affair with Danny's wife.

and remember

"Your body is 93% water. No one is safe"

This world has gone mad, and I am not talking about the alleged terrorists.

Could make life interesting if you go for a pee.

Which reminds me of an extract from "The CIA's Secret Weapons Systems"
by Andrew Stark...

"This reporter's investigation revealed that the "Hot Wire" was child's play compared to certain other CIA weapons devices. For instance, I was able to obtain Volumes One and Two of the "CIA Black Book" on improvised munitions, volumes that are stamped "for official use only" on almost every page. It is obvious why the CIA would like these books to remain secret. With elaborate instructions, they describe how to make high explosives from aspirin, how to construct a nail grenade, and how to turn a Coke bottle into a bomb.

Described in detail in the "Black Book" is the previously mentioned urea nitrate explosive, or, as it is known to the pros, "the piss bomb." Instructions for the preparation of this weapon assure the maker that animal urine will do as well as human; the important thing is to have ten cups of it, boil it down to one cup, and mix it with the nitric acid."
