bombs" if the explosive content has deteriorated and become inert. How long does that stuff stay dangerous?
Actually, over time, explosives internally breakdown and become unstable, and even more dangerous. Not only are these knuckleheads endangering
themselves, but everyone in at least a 20 yard radius of them too.
ETA: Sorry Zaphod, looks like we posted the same thought at the same time, and you beat me to the post.
