    You could probably make a fuse of sorts with it, but it's not really explosive in and of itself. Even the much more reactive alkali metals wouldn't be up to much.

    EDIT: Oh, and I suppose I should act the responsible chemist and say, "keep it away from water, store it in oil and inform the council immediately." :yy:

    Probably shouldn't feed it after midnight, either.

    How much have you got and why have you got it?

    On another note, if you can get it to produce a constant-ish supply of hydrogen and have some "Quickfit" flasks and connections you can make a nice hydrogen bunsen. That's pretty neat I think.

    To be honest if you really wanted to make a bomb Lithium would be quite a way down the list of stuff you need. Get some antifreeze and a freezer however, and you're halfway to nitroglycerin...

    if you've got enough of it you could bombard it with neutrons and get yourself one of the ingredients used for a nuclear bomb. You'd just need to manufacture yourself some Deuterium and you'd be sorted

    Smoking it would be boring. You want to try snorting it.
