Peanut oil can be processed to produce glycerol, which can be used to make nitroglycerine, an explosive liquid used in dynamite. However, there are other processes that can be used to make dynamite without using peanuts at all. So, this little factoid isn’t completely false and it isn’t completely true. But it’s enough to make us wonder why they make us take off our shoes at the airport, and then serve us dynamite ingredients on the plane.
