Teen's Plan to Blow up Turtles Ends Very Badly Cigar ash sets off bomb in his pocket By Evann Gastaldo, Newser Staff Posted May 6, 2013 12:17 PM CDT 65 comments Comments (Shutterstock) (Newser) – Karma wasted no time in living up to her reputation Saturday in Texas. Police say a 19-year-old man made a bomb with which he planned to "blow up turtles." Instead, as he carried it in his pocket on his way down to the bayou with a friend, he lit a cigar ... and the ashes apparently ignited the bomb as they fell near his pocket. It exploded, injuring the teen's hand, lower extremities, and face. No charges have been filed at this point, KHOU reports.
