    From Reuters ( http://today.reuters.com/news/artic...DE.xml&WTmodLoc=NewsHome-C3-oddlyEnoughNews-2 ):

    If criminal gangs seek to arm themselves in this fashion, I don't think there can be a better result . . .

    :what: :evil: :neener:

    But I thought that was one of the usual methods of opening up a grenada. I wonder how it did that. :confused:

    Oh, wait! You said grenade!!

    Man that'll leave a mark!

    Ohhh God...all I can think about is at the end of one of those WWII era Bugs Bunny cartoons where Bugs gets a job working a conveyer belt and a artillery shell rolls up and while cringing he wacks it with a hammer. Nothing happens and he writes DUD on it and another shell comes down the conyeyer belt.

    I guess this guy didn't get a dud.

    Some kids in the Milwauke metro a few years back injured themselves badly with a pipe bomb. They made the bomb, and filled it. Then they realized they needed a hole for the fuse so they drilled one...

    I guess he got Marvin the Martians "Earth-Shattering Ka-BOOM"

    He should have known better. EVERYBODY knows the proper tool for opening up any type of ordinance is a cutting torch!

    We had two incidents in Afghanistan like this. One, the guy was collecting UXO to get the materials for IED's and was trying to open a flare with a hacksaw. On the same table as all the other UXO that he had collected..... Blew the entire end of a building off.

    The other one was a dude just outside the main gate dug up what turned out to be an un0exploded cluster bomb. Not a bomblet, the whole thing. This was in a field next to a wedding party that was going on (why do these things always happen at weddings? Gods way of cleaning out the pool maybe?) Anyway, he tried to oprn the outter casing with a hammer, chisle and road flare..... The crater was about 11' across and 6' deep and scattered bomblets all over the area. It also killed several members of the wedding party.

    Doesn't something like this always start with "hold my beer and watch this?"

    That's weird. I was JUST thinking of that cartoon, for new particular reason, right before I logged on and saw this post.

    So glad I'd finished drinking my coffee before I read that. Sorry to hear that one other keyboard was hosed....

    I wonder if the grenade had "ACME" stamped on the side of it... :rolleyes:

    And yeah, I thought of the same Bugs Bunny cartoon... it's the one with the gremlins, if I'm not mistaken.

    The fellow in the story certainly had a "Wile E. Coyote" moment, one way or the other.... *snicker*
