Not any more. There are other, more energetic formulations.

All such properties can be had in a less hazardous form.
For instance, a mixture made of FEFO (bis(fluorodinitroethyl)formal,
bis(fluorodinitropropyl)formal and fluorodinitroethyldinitropropyl
formal is an eutectic mixture and a liquid at RT. The mixture is pretty
insensitive and non-toxic, at least compared to hydrazine compounds.
Guess, what such a liquid, insensitive, stable and high performance
explosive could be used for...;>.

It is easy: mix hydrazine hydrate with ammonium perchlorate or nitrate
or mixtures thereof. Instead of hydrazine hydrate, anhydrous hydrazine
can also be used yielding a more powerful mixture. Unless you know what anhydrous hydrazine can do, don't do it. I'd say: not for household use ;).
>unpublished expertise to stay alive playing with these materials.
Yup. That can only be obtained one way: experiments and practice. It
can be done, but it is not convenient.
Like Kerry, President Bush is a Yale graduate who has benefited from his wealth and family connections. But Bush spends his down time as more of an everyman, preferring to spend vacations at his Texas ranch clearing brush.They're both in the midst of money they didn't make themselves, that's for sure, but I rewound for that second sentence.
But Bush spends his down time as more of an everyman, preferring to spend vacations at his Texas ranch clearing brush.Everyman, who makes his bread and bacon clearing brush, does not clear brush on his vacation. Likely he doesn't get a vacation. I have cleared brush on vacation. It's middle-class people with benefits and sugar-tit babies like Bush who clear brush for fun, not Everyman. People who clear brush for fun get blisters when we do it. Everyman has hard hands. If Everyman voted in the same percentages as people who clear brush for fun and with the same attention to his interests, we'd have a different country. Everyman is not impressed by people who clear brush for fun.
I see the bad moon arising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightnin.
I see bad times today.
Dont go around tonight,
Well, its bound to take your life,
Theres a bad moon on the rise.
I hear hurricanes ablowing.
I know the end is coming soon.
I fear rivers over flowing.
I hear the voice of rage and ruin.
Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die.
Looks like were in for nasty weather.
One eye is taken for an eye.
"Kinky!" yells a guy who recognizes him from across the street. He gives a thumbs-up sign. "I'm votin' for you!"Ed's note: Title song written by Jerry Jeff Walker, but it's in Kinky's set list, along with "Get your biscuits in the oven and your buns in the bed".
"May the God of your choice bless you," Kinky replies.
