Gatorade of mass destruction

Update 2: Sheesh, they love to talk out their ass (via El Universal): From the United States we learned that the terrorists planed to mix Gatorade with toothpaste to create an explosive cocktail to be detonated by an i-pod or a cellphone.

Update 1: The latest on the recipe, which strikes me as phooey.

The suspects were going to dissimulate a liquid explosive gel stabilized by mineral salts in beverage containers (the drink was red--see below) with a false bottom. The payload was then to be detonated by a disposable camera flash.

The bombers supposedly were using Gatorade as the base and X as the active ingredient to produce an IED? Let's see what's in Gatorade:

Sucrose syrup
Glucose-fructose syrup
Citric Acid
Natural orange flavor
Sodium citrate
Monopotassium phosphate
Yellow No. 6
Ester gum
Bromated vegetable oil

GatorAid now banned and K-Y Jelly too. The terror plot unfolds, former for energy, latter for use. Operation Screw US.

This guy had better watch out - he may be getting a visit.

Shirley the Gatorade and use of KY go together - I don't use either but it only seems natural. Perhaps the KY is of use when the suicide bomber kises their ass goodbye ?

Next step - Nude flying.
