I'd previously mumbled about how growing up in post-WW2 Germany is a bit weird because construction work keeps turning up unexploded bombs and everyone just kind of goes "oh, okay, another one of those"

there was one found in Nuremberg again yesterday but when searching for news reports about it I'm just finding other articles about one found in February (also in Nuremberg)

here's a screenshot of the "related articles" bit from one of them

it's KIND OF WEIRD to think that Germans just grow up knowing that there's *literally tons* of explosives buried around the towns they live in that MIGHT blow up at any point especially if disturbed but they probably won't so it's just kind of taken as a fact of life

@theoutrider there's a lake near my parent's house in southern jutland where a quarter of it is a fancy artificial sand-beach with bridge and stuff, and the rest of the lake is diving-forbidden because of possible unexploded WW2 bombs/grenades.
