Boooring!

Yawn. Another World War II bomb evacuation again.

Bomb

Germany: Thousands evacuated in Berlin as World War II bomb is defused – A quarter-ton World War II bomb was discovered in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin. Thousands of people were evacuated from their homes as police set up a radius around the unexploded ordinance.

The ones they actually detonate are pretty rare – and way more fun.

German oddity 15: Germany is a place where huge underground bombs are routinely unearthed all around the country and this barely even makes second page news. In fact, most Germans directly affected are more annoyed about it than anything else. They grudgingly leave their homes until the bomb crews have disarmed or detonated the damned things. Over 5,000 bombs are found in Germany every year.
