eBay messed up my order, what should I do with 50kg of ammonium nitrate?

was originally just going to make nitric acid, but would probably only use 300g at most.

I smell bs.

:D What happened? Sounds unbelievable at the present day.

What do you have access to? Do you have a garden?

You can make ammonia and its salts, any nitrate, inorganically.

Several smoke emitting devices can be made. I am sure there are uses in organics also.

What are you after?

Store in a cool dry place well sealed, use as needed.

Use it to cool drinks then fertilize lawn.

A.N is one of the best fertilizers in existence!

Sell it off to your sciencemadness homies :)

I'd resell it, use it as fertilizer, keep it as a handy stockpile, bomb a government building, make some cold packs, the possibilities are truly endless.

You could tell them you want to return it for a refund, then give them a 1-star review.

You could also post a picture here so Tsjerk will believe you.

Or try this:

1:Call the local police and tell them you've got 50 KG of high explosives in your house and they can't have it and you won't let them in and They'd Better Not Bother You or There Will Be Trouble.
2: Barricade doors and windows.
3: Issue your demands to an expectant news media when they show up.
4: ????

Or just make a crapload of nitrous oxide.
