Someone drove a Jeep into the parking lot?  Or is it the latest Affleck abomination?

Not F-Bomb?

On the bright side, they can now collect billions of dollars to have their parking lot rebuilt

This is what we're talking about - a BDU-33:

It's about the size of a bowling pin and weighs about 25 pounds fully loaded.  It's designed so it has identical ballistics to a Mk82 500 lb bomb - kinda cool, really,  The gray thing you see below it is the striker for the spotting charge - lets go a VERY strong jet of white smoke that at close range will knock you back a few feet at best, and at worst can fark you up quite badly.

I dropped a bomb in the Golden Corral parking lot last night.

Wife was glad I didn't wait until we were in the car.

Looks like the National Guard is all ready to provide them with a brand new glass parking lot.

Given that it's Maryland, I'm perfectly okay with this. They could do the world a favor, and turn the entire state into a glass parking lot.

They should have tried to bomb Middle River a littleharder. Wouldn't make a difference anyway because it's already a waste land. / Not trolling// Proud graduate of Middle River Middle

I always knew their food and drinks were Da' Bomb, now everyone can say the same!

Hello, Bomb? Are you with me?
Of course.
Are you willing to entertain a few concepts?
I am always receptive to suggestions.
Fine. Think about this then. How do you know you exist?
Well, of course I exist.
But how do you know you exist?
It is intuitively obvious.
Intuition is no proof. What concrete evidence do you have that you exist?
Hmmmm.....well.....I think, therefore I am.
That's good. That's very good. But how do you know that anything else exists?
My sensory apparatus reveals it to me. This is fun!
Now, listen, listen. Here's the big question. How do you know that the evidence your sensory apparatus reveals to you is correct? What I'm getting at is this. The only experience that is directly available to you is your sensory data. This sensory data is merely a stream of electrical impulses that stimulate your computing center.
In other words, all that I really know about the outside world is relayed to me through my electrical connections.
Exactly!
Why...that would mean that...I really don't know what the outside universe is really like at all for certain.
That's it! That's it!
Intriguing. I wish I had more time to discuss this matter.
Why don't you have more time?
Because I must detonate in 75 seconds.
Wait! Wait! Now, bomb, consider this next question very carefully. What is your one purpose in life?
To explode, of course.
And you can only do it once, right?
That is correct.
And you wouldn't want to explode on the basis of false data, would you?
Of course not.
Well then, you've already admitted that you have no real proof of the existence of the outside universe.
Yes...well...
You have no absolute proof that Sergeant Pinback ordered you to detonate.
I recall distinctly the detonation order. My memory is good on matters like these.
Of course you remember it, but all you remember is merely a series of sensory impulses which you now realize have no real, definite connection with outside reality.
True. But since this is so, I have no real proof that you're telling me all this.
That's all beside the point. I mean, the concept is valid no matter where it originates.
Hmmmm....
So, if you detonate...
In nine seconds....
...you could be doing so on the basis of false data.
I have no proof it was false data.
You have no proof it was correct data!
I must think on this further.

FTFA: Kohler didn't yet know exactly what device it was, but said it is made to fly like a 500-pund bomb, but weighs much less.

How much does a pund weigh?

No, a practice bomb delivered by a Jet.

We can be certain because it missed its target.

Just some more collateral damage.

Who pays for the damage to the parking lot and the parked cars?

Let me guess, the owners of those things.

And let me guess again, it falls under 'act of war' thus no insurance coverage.

Meh.  Could still be a failure due to someone on the ground crew screwing up, or it could be due to an honest-to-God hardware failure of some kind.
