I would be interested in comments regarding ammonia and fertilizer plants, there is one lurking close to you somewere.
Having recently completed a Hazardous substance handlers recertification course , the Safety data sheet for anhydrous ammonia states uses as fertilizer manufacture, manufacture of explosives, rocket fuel manufacture, and many more. OH joy.

Magoo I'm sure this is what was used in the Oklahoma FBI building and possibly in Vietnam mixed with a little diesel makes napalm. I have to wonder how big the piles of Ammonium Nitrate are out there? Simple N fertiliser and I was watching TV last week and see that pepper was used for the bombing of London bus. I just find this perplexing. I thinkd we should be much more careful in the kitchen and in the garden shed.
