    Come on people... this is obviously a joke.

    A very well done one, I might add, given that their government page shows fictitious testimonials made by people who actually do exist.

    How do I know for sure it's a joke? well... take a look at the source code. Here's this comment above their sign up form:

    <!-- real people should not fill this in and expect good things - do not remove this or risk form bot signups-->

    Other than that, here are a few things that should convince you this is a joke:

    • Even if putting a bomb on your property was perfectly legal (which I'm pretty sure it's not in most parts of the world), blowing off somebody's hands like that is definitely not legal –again, in most parts of the world.
    • As pointed out earlier, 1kg of TNT does a lot more than just blowing off somebody's hands. It'll hurt people 10m away.

      actually that comment is above a fake input field directly after the real input field and is used to deter form bots

      ...but it does look like a joke
