Time it would have taken to explode if it was real: milliseconds

Time it would have taken people to jump on here and criticise the emergency services and bomb disposal for doing nothing: also milliseconds

Score: 5

Exactly right.

I have the greatest of admiration for the dog walker who spotted a hand grenade that was missing its pin, and decided to pick it up to move it to the side of the path in case somebody got hurt. That person personifies Britishness :-)

That dog walker personifies a quality not exclusive to British people but found in human society of all creeds and colours around the world.

Please tell me that you didn't really feel offended by my comment enough that you had to come here and post this?

Never offended, just wanted to clarify that we share the opinion that the qualities of selflessness and bravery are ones British people, even Muslims, should be defined by .

I think technically it was me, but at no point did i say that all people on Littlemoor are morons. I referred to "the morons" who plague the lives of the majority.
