Only a few months back, a trawler brought up an unexploded German mine in it's net. The boat came back to harbour with it on, only to then get towed
back out while Navy personnel made the device safe. It isn't unusual.

During the opening ceremonies, I couldn't help but continually think, "any second now". Not saying I was disappointed that nothing happened though.
At least it is refreshing to see the respect between athletes. It really is a reminder that, for the most part, it's not the people, but the
governments that cause all the issues.
It's easy for people who don't live in the area, and probably quite a few who do, to forget how badly London (and several other areas in Britain,
for that matter) got hit during The Blitz, and that there's probably still plenty of unexploded
ordnance from WWI as well.
An ongoing reminder that all those things we only see in grainy black and white photos these days really did happen, and that it really was that bad.
