Newly Divorced Woman Blows up Her Wedding Dress with 20 Pounds of Explosives

The bang was heard for miles throughout Medina County, Texas.

There are a few ways to let someone know you’re totally over them: deleting them from social media, moving on with someone else, strapping 20 pounds of explosives to your wedding dress and blowing it to smithereens... uh, yeah. The last one is a little unconventional, but it's now been done.

A woman in Medina County, Texas, caused a bang that could be heard for 15 miles on Saturday night, when she celebrated her divorce by blowing up her old gown. Kimberly Santleben-Stiteler's divorce was finalized after 14 years of marriage, and instead of dining out she decided blowing s**t up would feel much better. Joining her for the big bang were her parents, sisters, brother-in-law, and 40 friends.

How she did it: Kimberly filled the dress with 20 pounds of the explosive target material, Tannerite, then shot at the dress with a shotgun dress, causing it to explode. She hit it on the first try. She carried out the dramatic end to her marriage at her family farm in La Coste, 30 minutes west of San Antonio. The family received Facebook comments and text messages from people within a 15-mile radius of the farm who heard the noise.

That's one unmissable way to say goodbye to a marriage!
