Three persons were injured recently in a Pakistani courtroom when a police constable, when asked how a grenade work, opted to forego a verbal explanation and instead pulled the pin, blowing up the courtroom ( http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3419757/posts ). Ka-boom.
He’s in a spot of trouble over that–provided he survives his injuries.
Gee, I thought we Americans had a lock on this rare high level of stupidity. There is no evidence that this constable ever attended an American public school or university. He might’ve played American-made video games, though. It’s worth investigating.
So, the next time anyone asks you, “Do you know how a grenade works?”, please don’t say, “Yeah, sure, just watch this”–and pull the pin.
