SOME CANADIAN IDIOT THREW AWAY A HUNDRED YEAR OLD BOMB
Holy shit! How stupid can people be? This time the stupid is in Canada. London, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes everyone does something stupid. This time, the stupid involved the trash. Sure, all sorts of stupid stuff ends up in the trash. Recyclables, batteries, personally identifiable paperwork. But how about explosives? Wait, forget explosives. How about a military bomb from 100 years ago? Yup, stupid. Or, at best, completely unaware to the degree you didn’t know you almost blew yourself up when you picked up the bomb, carried it over there and put it down. But anyways, don’t throw away bombs from WWI like this Canadian idiot. They are old, unstable and likely to blow up just by looking at them. Actually, don’t throw away bombs, period. If this had been thrown to the curb literally, poof.
LEFT ON CURB, WWI BOMB FOUND BY NEIGHBOR WHO ALMOST TRIPPED OVER IT
This old bombshell was full of more than 10 kilos of live explosive. A local London man, Danny Vellow, literally stumbled across the WWI bomb shell. He hopped over his backyard fence to head to a doctor’s appointment. When he hit the ground next to the bomb, the Canadian man said, “Lo and behold, I almost stepped on the bomb. I was like, ‘Holy heck, eh?'” No, he really said that, to himself. And then he told media. Anyway. This was last week. Someone, it seems, put the bomb shell out on the curb with the trash for collection. Vellow is a retired iron worker. He’s no Canadian idiot like the tool who left this bomb on the sidewalk. So when the saw the vintage metal casing, he knew it could be a real, live, bomb. So he called police.
EXPLOSIVE HISTORY DESTROYED BY CANADIAN BOMB SPECIALISTS
The cop who responded immediately asked Vellow if he was the one who called in to report a bomb. Vellow replied, “Yeah, it’s right there.” At the time, the cop was standing only three feet from the bomb. Oops. But the cop immediately went and moved his squad car further away way down on the other side of the street.” Police remained at the scene for most of the day to make sure no one disturbed the old ordinance and set it off. They also sent the bomb squad to the scene. Canadian Forces Explosive Ordnance Disposal later arrived. They took the old bomb to Base Borden. Bomb experts there safely destroyed the explosive piece of history.
