Don't make things like they used to

Jesus, these things still work?
Nine-year-old Edward George Weise III of Lakeland, Florida, was in the kitchen of his home late yesterday afternoon, holding a WWII pineapple grenade in one hand and a lighter in the other.

He lit the lighter next to the grenade and it exploded, critically injuring himself and sending shrapnel through the wall and into other rooms in the house, advised Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd.

Well, gee, what nine year old doesn't have a lighter to play with while he's playing with a grenade? Gosh, sure!! WTF??

It sounds like more fun than I had playing with Matchbox cars.
