Nice. I wonder if the bottled water companies have started printing up labels that say "Contains 2 servings per bottle" for all of their products yet?

Default Schoolboy finds WWII bomb on first trip out with metal detector Christmas present

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/9769255/Schoolboy-finds-WWII-bomb-on-first-trip-out-with-metal-detector-Christmas-present.html
Doh!

Quote:
Sonny Cater was exploring fields near his house when the National Geographic metal detector, worth £30, led him to a mud-caked metal capsule.

He took it home but his father Jem, 37, became suspicious as he washed it under a tap and contacted a relative who is a former RAF armourer.

The family were told to immediately call the police and a bomb disposal squad was dispatched to their home in Kings Lynn, Norfolk.

Experts identified the device as a 10lb British practice bomb from WWII and it was removed for safe disposal.

Yesterday his mother Tracey said that, despite the drama, the incident proved that Sonny's Christmas present worked.

it continues....

Do you recall that family on the East Coast that named their kids after Hitler? http://newsfeed.time.com/2012/06/05/adolf-hitler-campbell-custody-battle-parents-who-gave-kids-nazi-names-wont-get-them-back/

Seems that in New Jersey there is a disapproved list anyhow. Not that I approve of naming kids after Nazis.

That is pretty f'ed up. You should be able to name your kid whatever you want, I guess it can be abused though.

Yeah, I am really conflicted on that story. I despise the parents for naming their kid after such a repulsive piece of chit, but I would defend their right to do so just the same. I hope against hope that the kids turn out OK despite their parents stupidity. It has been known to happen.
