Rusty Shackleford: symptomoftheuniverse: whatshisname: My Dad found one in a field outside his school yard. He took it to the headmasters office and put it on the desk. They evacuated the school.

How much old ordinance is still lying around in Europe? Really scary 70 years later.

Well, according to my friend the retired Royal Engineer Colonel who looks after the underground UXO at Vimy Ridge and Beaumont-Hamel (WWI sites that are Canadian National Historic Sites), he reckons one piece of unexploded ordnance per square foot of northern France and southern Belgium.  That one piece could be a single rifle cartridge, or it could be a 12-inch poison gas shell.

Your name fits so perfectly with your post I don't even know what to say beyond that.

This is what you get for disarming your populace, England.

ESPECIALLY disarming your populace of grenades. Sweet Jesus, England, what were you thinking?

Not even that. I learned what a pineapple grenade was from freakin' army men.

Clearly this is proof that ACORN has such explosive political power that they're making a bang across the pond. Soon, Tory politicians will find themselves pinned down, reeling from the shockwave that is Chicago-style election fraud. This is the first blast, folks, but mark my words... this kind of corruption will turn the Euro-zone governments into nothing more than shrapnel.

/study it out.
