Rolla, Mo. - There are many summer camps, something for everyone. But there's no other camp quite like this: an explosives camp. A hands-on explosives camp. Such a thing would seem impossible in modern America. These days, kids ride their trikes in protective gear. So, the very idea of explosives camp is thrilling...

Explosives Camp is an offering of Missouri University of Science and Technology -- formerly known as the University of Missouri-Rolla, formerly known as the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy. Rolla is midway between St. Louis and Springfield (Springfield, Mo., that is)...

Here in Rolla, the explosives guru is Dr. Paul N. Worsey...

Paul Worsey is a serious engineer -- working in a very serious field -- but he is free and easy. He laughs frequently. He wants his students to have fun, and he wants to have fun himself. He believes in straight talk, despising political correctness. He is scalding on the subject of government -- particularly its regulators. He is not against regulations; he's just against silly and ignorant regulations...

Read the whole thing.

I remember hating "Snuggles the Fabric Softener Bear".
My new niece, who was eight at the time, gave me a wedding present I will treasure always, even though the marriage ended.
It was a mini-Snuggles doll, burnt, mutilated and run through with a tiny cocktail sword.
She's now a somewhat well known jewelry designer.
