  • I'm pretty sure that this is Darwin in action

    Seven Thai workers were killed and 19 injured when they tried to dismantle a Second World War bomb with a blowtorch.

    The device was discovered by builders on a construction site in northern Bangkok’s Lad Plakao neighbourhood, Thailand.

    Believing that it had lost its charge, they sold it to men working in a scrap metal warehouse.


    ‘The warehouse workers thought the bomb was no longer active so they used a metal cutter to cut into it, causing the explosion,’ local police chief Virasak Foythong told AFP news agency.
    I'm sorry. I don't mean to sound cruel. But that's just dying of stupid right there.
    It's been ten years since that lonely day I left you
    In the morning rain, smoking gun in hand
    Ten lonely years but how my heart, it still remembers
    Pray for me, momma, I'm a gypsy now

    Dateline - Warsaw Thailand
    The year's at the spring
    And day's at the morn;
    Morning's at seven;
    The hill-side's dew-pearled;
    The lark's on the wing;
    The snail's on the thorn:
    God's in his heaven—
    All's right with the world!
