    They turn up so frequently it doesn't merit much attention anymore. There are such explosives all over the European and CBI Theatres.

    I've mentioned this before, but one day a street was blocked off in the neighborhood of my kid's school. While building a house, construction workers had uncovered an unexploded WWII bomb.

    I wonder if this sort of long-term effect was ever thought about when those bombs were dropped!?

    Warmongerers are not bothered by their actions. Whilst you and I live by the ballot, they achieve their goals by the bullet.

    I believe it was to some extent. AFAIK at least some German air-dropped sea-mines and some British bombs had devices to defeat any de-fusing attempts on duds.

    Isn't there a tv program called UXB?

    "Danger: UXB" - It was a BBC series from a long time ago (1979). In my opinion it was the best British dramatic program ever made. I'd very much like to see it again if I could.
