Kids Don't Try This At Home or School or Anywhere Else, Especially If You're Black
Kiera Wilmot, 16, a good student at Bartow High School in Florida, was curious to see what would happen if she mixed household chemicals in a water bottle. What happened: it made a small explosion that blew the bottle top off - no damage, nobody hurt - after which she was arrested, handcuffed, charged with a felony for which she will be tried as an adult, and expelled from school. School officials argued "actions have consequences." Nerdy critics argued science isn't a crime, and began tweeting about all the things they accidentally blew up when they were in high school.
