Blowing Up U.S. Federal Buildings
may be prohibited by law or regulation having force of law
If things are getting dull, you may want to consider
blowing up Federal buildings.
A well-chosen target can make things exciting.
A poorly-chosen target, however, can lead to
For purposes of this thought exercise, we assume
that you will consider the White House in Washington.
Here are some ``pro'' tips to avoid beginner mistakes.
Do not contact
to obtain a ``Junior Jihad'' grant.
Lord knows, these B-One people have enough reputational
difficulties without being associated with crazy people
blowing things up!

Do not create a bank account with a really bogus name.
If you do not have the money to hand, and need to save up,
be careful in creating the savings account at the bank.
Names like ``Mike Hunt'' are so much better than names like
``Gov. Rick Scott's Special Account Not Saving to Buy Explosives'' because,
despite the innocent-sounding name, the latter will still draw
Do not open the bank account without proper Federal authorization.
the bank must ask for documentation showing that you
are not a terrorist.
Most banks will accept a letter from your supervisor,
so long as it says that he has known you for at least six months
and, during that time, you have neither blown stuff up
nor shouted Mohammedan insults at infidels.
Also a photo ID is good,
and it is even better if the photo sort of looks like you.
You will not successfully raise the money by participating
in an advance fee or escrow laundry schemes such as those offered by
A little hard work never hurt anyone, or so it is reported
by people unsullied by the threat of manual labor.
Do not purchase a whole case of dynamite at one time.
People will look at you funny if you go
in to the explosives store and say you want
to buy a whole case of dynamite.
Also, be careful, the stuff can be dangerous.
If the clerks seem suspicious, do not just bull
your way forward; instead, wink and say
``Sorry, I meant to ask for TNT substitute sticks, nudge, nudge.''
Do not rent a semi-truck and tell them that
you have an urgent delivery for
1600 Pennsylvania Ave
Washington, DC 20003
because the paperwork requirements for one-way
truck rentals are more complicated.
Just tell the truck rental company that you need
it for an important delivery, and it does not matter
if the truck is a little banged up already.
Very important: do not put magnetic signs on the cab doors
of the truck saying
Junior Jihad Surprise Delivery.
Some people have strong feelings about companies
having middle-eastern-sounding names.
Something like ``Spammy Sammy's Stuff & Smut'' will work much better,
though nothing will help with those stuck-up people who
just dislike being caught behind slow-moving trucks
hauling dynamite and forklifts.
Another important thing to avoid is calling
the Secret Service.
If you call them and ask them to remove the
jersey barricades from Pennsylvania Ave,
they are going to talk your ears off.
You will probably be on the phone for
over a half-hour, and it is a long-distance call.
Do not steal a
and load it on the
semi along with the dynamite.
Keep it legit, pay the one-way rental fee.
After you have moved the jersey barricades,
be a good guy: call the rental company
and tell them where to pick it up.
A really good guy would move the jersey barricades,
pull the truck forward,
and then put the barricades back before calling the
forklift rental company.
Do not just barge in driving the semi under
White House portico.
If your wind deflector will not clear under
the chandelier, it is better to ask where
they would prefer to receive deliveries.
Do not discuss any of your plans on the internet or using e-mail.
The spooks are already
capturing and archiving
pretty much all web traffic and e-mail.
They have hundreds of naked cheerleader pictures,
and more girls riding topless camels than you ever knew existed.
They have carefully curated the entire ``old'' Galitsin archive,
and almost all the Tracy Lords
films that have been digitized.
Also, they have every e-mail you ever sent,
and have carefully screened them for the words
"bomb", "dynamite", "junior jihad grant",
"prism", and "echelon".
The word "carnivore" is no longer checked.
If you must use the internet,
always use code words and phrases.
For instance, say "carnivore" instead of "bomb",
"nosy surveillance program" instead of "dynamite",
"loud noise" instead of "massive explosion".
We should not have to keep reminding people, but:
do not obscure the name of the rental company on the
In most states this can lead to a presumption that you
the forklift, and that is generally a felony.
Just by following these few simple steps,
you may avoid
And if you have any questions,
that's a shame.
Damaging U.S. government buildings may be against
the law in the applicable jurisdiction.
Fully discuss your plans with an attorney licensed
in your state before taking any affirmative steps
toward causing any loud noise. Pay no attention
to the e-mail links for various spammers, they are
just free publicity.
Taking part in paypal pyramid
schemes, triple-click promotions, ant mailers, and
the like are often forms of mail fraud and could be
investigated by the postal inspectors when they build
up sufficient ambition.
You should not add any of the e-mail addresses of any
of the enthusiastic persons you find in this silly shopping
page to your mailing list, unless you are sure that they
would be interested.
