Safety Dance

Good news for anyone planning to get themselves blown up in the future (pay attention, citizens of Iran), a new, eco-friendly bomb is in the works. German scientists, a group with a solid history of inventing new ways to destroy things, have come up with an explosive material that is good for the environment. You know, aside from what it may vaporize, pulverize or otherwise set aflame.

No, the new explosive doesn't expel poppy seeds and windmills across the countryside when detonated, but it does produce "fewer toxic byproducts than common explosives." That's nice. It's good to know we can dig through rubble with a certain peace of mind now. Maybe they can add scents to the munitions too, that way a war zone can smell like Irish Spring or something.

I guess I'll go remove my "War is bad for children and other living things" bumper sticker from my car now.
