How to dig out a 155mm shell... Or Not.
Unbelievable.

Darwin Awards???

These guys win it.

The description in the video is deceptive, as I remember this story, & the 'winners' were actually volunteers:

How do you dig up a 155mm shell?

Do you pry it out with your Ak?


No.... that might not be the way to go about it...

I would have just planted a pack of C4 next to it and ran WAYYY off (or behind something big) before detonating it.

Not try to dig the damn thing out!

What gets to me is FOUR of them clustered around it... then bad luck to get a FIFTH walking nearby.

Usually, its just ONE freaking guy in a blast proof suit or a robot...

These guys however.. they just CROWDED around it. Like they're racing to open a Christmas present first or something.

"Oh. These guys are trying to dig up a shell? I feel an urge to walk nearby and past them while they are doing it..."

instead of

"Erm, let me just hide behind this mound here until they're done, okay? Don't want any potential shrapnel fucking me up here."

There was a longer video of this online when it happened... I searched, but most of them seem to have been removed.

In the vid I saw originally, early-on you can see one of them with his AK under it... prying on it. (wtf)

omg wtf !!
political correctness is a doctrine.... fostered by a delusional, illogical minority...... and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media; which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Those of you that think this is funny are vile & sick. You should be ashamed of yourselves but your over inflated egos & sense of self worth won't allow it.

These are simple people without access to education, nor a chance to learn through absorption from TV like you lot do on your big fat arses.

Poor people do poor people things, and rich people do rich people things.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

when you rob Paul to give to Peter ... ... ... you will always get Peters support!

Re: How to dig out a 155mm shell... Or Not.
Not sure why they had that many people in harms way. I think the smart thing to do was to let one person work on it. Common sense and safty didn't seem to be a big priority to them.

I used to metal detect and dig up old civil war shells that were still live after 150 years. Very unstable things. I disarmed about 10 of my own and 3 for museums and never took any short cuts. You have to be insane to even attempt it but if you know what you are doing, they really are not that dangerous. The few who have disarmed them are mostly very careless people and many of them have either been killed of harmed very badly. Not me....I always respected and feared what I was doing.
