The Power of a WWII Sea Mine

 

 

Watch a World War II sea mine explode on the beaches of Katwijk Aan Zee, Netherlands.

Construction workers found the mine lying on the beach, according to nieuws.nl, and used the bucket of an excavator to move the giant goddamn bomb right along.

The local bomb squad decided to detonate the mine right there on the beach rather than take the risk of attempting to defuse it.

Next time you see an old bomb from World War II, run. Run like hell. And run further than 20 feet.
