    Ignorant, venal cowards to be attacking sleeping people who are on their side.

      These things are loud and obnoxious but not seriously dangerous.  These are pranks almost all boys pull off as kids.  I was born in 1980 and even I knew how to do this by around the sixth grade and had popped multiple two liter bottles.

      It's loud, it's obnoxious, and it freaks the crap out of people.  Thus boys love it.

        somebody could have been killed if it had blown up in their face. But hey, it's just a prank. Boys will be boys, even if statistically a lot of people are maimed or killed each year making their own homemade explosive devices.

        per other commenter, can kill or maim someone. Not to mention pulls cops away from other calls that may be more serious. And it's still an ignorant (in both the regular sense and the Utah sense of the word, i.e., "rude") and cowardly thing to do.
