Bombs in chips

From The Age:

"Workers at a British factory making chips were evacuated twice last week after bomb parts turned up in potatoes imported from France and Belgium, site of battles in World Wars I and II. The Scarborough plant was emptied on Friday after a worker spotted a shell tip among potatoes as they were being cleaned for slicing."

In many ways funny, in others it's amazing... Just think what would of happened it that shell tip hadn't been spotted, and it had of gone into the slicer. Would it of produced a nice bang?

What will the think of next

I was in Boots today (a UK pharmacy), and I happened to notice this interesting little product

Magicool Hotweather Cooler

Thinking that sounded like it would be useful when heading to warmer climates, as it:

Instantly cools and refreshes your body and face on hot days and muggy nights.
CFC free, non-toxic and does not discolour fabrics.

I thought I'd look up what the magic ingredients were. I expected a list of incomprehensible numbers or maybe a patented chemical disclaimer, imagine my surprise when I found aqua; yes that's right, the secret (and only) ingredient is non other than water.

All for the bargain price of £4.99
