This certainly falls into "Other battery Type Flashlights". BOOM!!

Just what we needed, a flashlight bomber! Puts a whole new meaning to the phrase “flashlight nut”. Check this out: http://video.foxnews.com/v/1684372920001/new-details-on-string-of-flashl...

Be careful of what you pick up!

This one is a little different. Not the usual “suspected bomb” or a “suspicious flashlight”. Real bombs with real people hurt. Three bombs and five people injured so far. Certainly nothing to yawn about. Then again, maybe serial bombers are common in Germany and nobody cares. Just guessing.

No, but bombs arent that special here. We find some of the aerial bombs you guys forgot here from time to time. Silly

In Slovenia, real shells are still unearthed pretty regularily along what was the WWI front line. Fused, of course, and most of them quite lethal after almost 100 years.

Locals doing escavations in those soft grounds know when to stop and call the bomb squad, so there aren’t so many casualties as one might expect.

In Dolly Sods national park there are still live munitions. While hiking we found one.

Yeah when they find one they'll evacuate anything around.. tho there are far less bombs left than you would think because allies supplied us with the drop maps and therefore a lot have been found already. Being that old makes any mine or bomb more dangerous especially if unfused but still "there".

scaru – “In Dolly Sods national park there are still live munitions. While hiking we found one”.

Really? That’s not far from here and I have been there several times. Never heard anything about that though. Do they have anything posted about areas to avoid?

Yep, here a picture of the sign is. 

I don't have a picture of the one we saw but here a picture from the internet is. 

There's a reason they say to stay on the trails. Silly
