There is NO missing word. It's an em dash [—]. This from Wiki-P

Similarly, it [em dash] can be used instead of an ellipsis to indicate
aposiopesis, the rhetorical device by which a sentence is stopped
short not because of interruption but because the speaker is too
emotional to continue, such as Darth Vader's line "I sense
something, a presence I have not felt since—" in Star Wars Episode
IV: A New Hope.

ASCII 151. In Windows Alt (Number pad) 0151.

It — has other uses, i.e., long pause as used here, among others
see Wiki-P.

I mistakenly assumed you'd be above apostrophe-abuse . . .
There's such a lot of it around and it seems to go largely unquestioned!

Apostrophe-abuse But first before I forget, recently
read an article noting that "-" seem to be disparaging, I see
you still use them. [apostrophe-abuse.]

AA? Piffle there are worse crimes.

Comma split
Periphrasiss
Split infinitives
Fused participles
Ellipsis
Double - Negatives - Case - Passives
Compound Prepositions - Conjunctions
Inversion
Anacoluthon
Object-shuffling
Walled-up objects
Nominativus pendens

Reminds upon me, John Bennett who publishes the magazine
Fireworks in England once mentioned that his daughter
called Fowler's Modern English - That Book.

Some claim that Stunk and White are Word Fascist's.

The Bible says that sowers are also reapers.
But an exception must be made for those who
sow by implying and those who reap by inferring.
The current tendency to make "infer" synonymous
with "imply" would destroy an essential distinction.
Let us continue to use "imply" when a speaker
or writer implants allusions or suggestions,
and to use "infer" when a listener or reader
harvests from indirect or direct statements
a crop of his own conclusion. Blessings may ensue.

I'm reminded of Sauron . . .
I needled him too, on occasion, with equally scant justification!

without detonation.

Triaceton triperoxide or Hexamethylene triperoxide diamine.Are very dangerous.Is more likely to explode for no leason.

I'm so glad you've cleared that up - I found no use of the word leason as a verb anywhere on the net, despite an exhaustive search!
I have to go and have a lie-down now . . .

[edit] That lie-down I was in need of will just have to wait; I've just spotted another intriguing word to look up!

LOL ... I do enjoy your humor...:P

I have to ask out of curiosity about watergel exp's using peroxide and Aluminium. I know that Axt did a wonderful thread on these, but most of the peroxide he worked with was 50%+-. I was wondering if the more obtainable 35% would have enough % to be used for this application...?
It seems like the only safer use of peroxides IMO... v.s. its primary salts that cause so many accidents.

@ pig

Note that water alone and aluminum , 3 H2O + 2 Al => Al2O3 + 3 H2
yields 1760 kilocalories per kilogram. This is so insensitive to initiation
that it requires heroic effort to propagate , some additional explosive
or oxidizer in the mix.

If you read the water gel thread you must have missed my post there.

I read those ...and it is true that Aluminium and h20 makes for a very powerful exp.as you said,only if it can get overdriven by a powerful booster. I was just wondering if anyone had any luck with using 35% peroxide as a replacement for Axt's 50%? Seemed like it had some nice qualities ( according to the witness plate).
