Explosive Legacy

More than 2100 WWII-era bombs were recently discovered during a routine property survey in Germany. "The find is the biggest in Germany this year, the state’s military ordnance disposal service said."

This year?!?

You know, the funny thing is that if they hadn't been buried like that, it's very possible that they could still be used. Depends on the actual explosive, but from what I hear a decent amount of the actual explosives, but not the starter, are stable enough to last quite some time.

Remarkably stable explosives after 63+ years
