July 1st, 1916.
Quote:
It was the first day of the Battle of the Somme, during the First World War. The Royal Engineers had dug a tunnel, 50 feet deep, extending for about 300 yards from the British lines to the German front line. There, under a German position called “Schwaben Hohe”, they laid a mine consisting of over 25 tons of Ammonal. The mine was detonated two minutes before 07.30 am – the hour of launch of the British offensive against the German lines. The resulting explosion blew almost half a million tons of chalk into the surrounding fields, sending debris over 4,000 feet into the air. It created a vast hole 300 feet across and 90 feet deep.
Boom.. Big Badda Boom.

Gurkhas are the ultimate weapon. I met a few working as contractors in Iraq guarding the Green Zone. I think they are some of the greatest warriors the world has ever seen. I wonder why they aren't awarding him the Victoria Cross.

In Leipzig, Germany, a 150lb bomb needed a little help getting off, after being dropped by the USAAC 70-odd years ago.

Gives new meaning to 'street sweeper'.

Want. Either that, or a bulldozer that'll do 110.
