This is a big problem all over Europe. Well everywhere in the world where bombs have been dropped. uhoh.gif The Russians dropped a bunch of bombs around here and it not uncommon to still have live ammo laying around in attics.

Quote:Digger driver dies after hitting WWII bomb

A construction worker operating a digger in the town of Euskirchen, North Rhine-Westphalia, hit the bomb and accidentally detonated it at around 1.30pm.

The blast broke windows up to six kilometres away, a police spokesman told Spiegel news site and it could reportedly be heard in Bonn - almost 30 kilometres away.

The vehicle burst into flames with the driver still inside, killing him. Thirteen others at the building site were injured, including two seriously.

Reports suggest that the effect of the blast could be felt for kilometres around Alfred-Nobel-Straße, where it took place.


That was a pretty big blast. damned.gif

Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.

Maybe next time he could just run into a sting ray or something. That way the next time he kills himself he wouldn't startle the neighbors.

Your prayers have worked like crazy. Maybe one of these days I won't have any behavior issues.
