Default So is it condom or vending machines that should be banned I forgot?

A German man died on Christmas Day after blowing up a condom dispenser with a homemade bomb in a botched robbery, police say.

The 29-year-old and two accomplices attached the bomb to the vending machine in a quiet street before taking cover in their vehicle.

But the victim did not close the door in time and was struck in the head by a steel shard from the explosion.

His accomplices took him to hospital but he later died of his wounds.

The men told staff at the hospital in the western town of Schoppingen that their unconscious friend had fallen down the stairs.

But one of them later admitted to police that they had blown up the machine.

Police confirmed that none of the money or condoms from the machine had been taken.

The two surviving men were arrested before later being released from custody.

Well, neither, but if stupidity was a crime the jails would be full. Can't save people from themselves.

No, but you can add him as a 2015 candidate for the Darwin Award.

Anyone who takes himself out of the gene pool through his own stupidity is eligible. The winner is the one who does it in the most unusual and spectacular way.

This forum used to be about woodwork and routers, lately it is just full of plain rubbish like this German condom bomb!
Otherwise old men's tales filling pages of ramblings on!
I am sure there are other blogs and or forums that concentrate on what it is there for!
Good luck and good buy! Condoms and all!

It works kind of like a television. You can change channels to find something you like better. Perhaps a google search would yield something more subject specific.
