Should call him 'Lucky'

What do you call a guy who's trying to create his own rocket fuel? Ronald Swerlein of Longmont, CO, calls himself a "nerd." But the authorities have another name for him: "inmate."

Swerlein has pleaded innocent to 10 felonies after police found weapons, ammunition and more than 400 chemicals in his home. The cache included half a pound of the main ingredient in dynamite.

Police searched the home after numerous complaints about fireworks, shots or explosions heard in the neighborhood.

Just the kind of guy you want living next door.

Full story here.

I think I used to live next door to him (or maybe it was just another weirdo)
