Speaking Of Evolutionary Advances

It seems like we have some new nominees for this year’s Darwin Awards

Police say two burglary suspects were killed after the excessive explosives they were using to break into a bank’s safe blew up the whole building.

The explosion in Dinant in southern Belgium destroyed half a banking office and left the rest in ruins.

Police said yesterday that one of the men was buried underneath the rubble and the other died in hospital Saturday, hours after the attempted heist.

Oh, and

The automated teller machines and bank safe were not opened.

    Back when I was trained to handle explosives, the NCO showed us different equations to compute the amount of explosives for different tasks (walls, piers, steel, etc). “P” denoted how many pounds of explosives would be needed for a particular task.

    The sergeant carefully pointed out that “P” did NOT mean “Plenty, plus all ya got!” That was the older school of thought on explosives back then…..

    Apparently these burglars didn’t get the word.

    Heh. That’s even better than the guy near here who yanked out his teeth with pliers and bashed his face with a grapefruit to fake a car wreck.
