Giant WWII mine detonated at English seaside town

UK bomb disposal experts detonated a huge, 1,500 pound WWII German mine at Bridgwater Bay, Somerset yesterday. The explosion was awesomely awesome, as can be seen here.

Remember, Hong Kong Disneyland is built on lots of unexploded WWII ordnance, left to marinate in salt water and slowly become inert. Let's hope that process is ticking along nicely. Tick tick tick.
