How can get a GIANT BOULDER out of my basement?
It's from the old foundation, and it's too big and unwieldy for four people to lift. It also won't fit through the door unless it were somehow shifted to it's narrow side (on which it wouldn't balance, so it would have to be supported by the four people who can't lift it).
Is there some way to break it apart? (I've got no overhead to swing a sledge hammer).
Or any other thoughts? This feels like something the geologists and engineers could help me with!

I'm trying to remember a children's book. There is an explosive so powerful that a single grain of it would cause a huge blast. It is in the possession of a sinister person. Our tiny hero rides a bird, steals the explosive, and (spoiler) drops it in the ocean, where it detonates relatively harmlessly. [more inside]

On "Lie To Me" this past week (possible spoiler alert) one of the characters notices the smell of Almonds while walking up to a building that was rigged to explode with C4. Now I was wondering: does C4 actually smell like Almonds?
Or is this just one of those weird Hollywood myths. This seems like a bad property for something used to blow people up (they would smell the almonds and run away).

What could my neighbors be doing that would cause explosions that shake our house (across the street and set back a ways from the road, in a rural subdivision)? [more inside]
