    This is a joke right?

    The problem with today's world is that I can no longer confidently discern whether this is a joke.

    "Not legal in every state."

    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

    Really like the idea of cycling with two sticks of TNT in my hands. Not

    This is hilarious/insane. I don't know how to feel. In the words of a coworker, "that's pretty fucking sweet, yet pretty fucking brutal".

    I'm having a hard time believing this is real, but its WHOIS is registered to VengeCycle, LLC. I know its not real, but the lengths they went to for this I don't understand.

    They have a location in NYC. Park Ave S. So this may be real...

    The name seems to be a play on the concept of the "revenge cycle" which portrays revenge in a negative light. So either it's a fake product, or a self deprecating one

    Wait a minute... That's unpossible!

    1,34 kg of TNT? Look what 1 kg does here : http://en.ria.ru/infographics/20130813/182605201/Potential-Damage-From-a-1kg-TNT-Explosion.html

    You would hurt a lot of people on the street with that!

    Well, that's a bit extreme.

    I prefer to use this lock. It also doubles a heavy and very deadly weapon should I come across any bike thieves in the street!

    I thought it was for real for a minute. Nice one.

    To put everyone at ease, this is never legal in any state. You cannot perform acts of self-determined revenge on someone simply because they stole something for you.

    You can protect yourself, and a little more than that on private property, which means a lot of things in a lot of states. But you can't detonate explosives in public places, period, much less put someone in direct harm.

    It's amazing how believable this is though...

    Hey cool! You can also just throw the explosive caps at someone you don't like, and detonate!

    Super handy!

    Of course a joke. This is 1kg of TNT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QUSff_JGyqw

    Imagine 2.

    (Edit: someone mentioned it already heh.)
