Polish Hussar: Our second "rediscovered World War II ordinance threatens urban center" thread in as many days, it sounds like Europe's Iron Harvest is a bumper crop this year.  It's terrifying how much unexploded ordinance is scattered throughout Europe, including a number of gas shells from World War I.

That's why Americans have been fighting wars overseas for the past 100 or so years. It's too messy to have them at home.

barc0001: Panes of glass that are several hundred years old are thicker at the base than the top because the glass has flowed down over time.

Actually, that's not true.  The way plate glass was manufactured back then resulted in it being thicker on one edge.  Being smart, the people back then would put the stronger, thicker side down.
