A Really Bad Commute
2008 At-Risk Survivor
Confirmed True by Darwin

(August 2008, The Netherlands) A 33-year-old man was carpooling to work in Hindeloopen when he mentioned to his colleague that he was carrying a self-made bomb. The driver immediately stopped the car and ejected the lunatic.

Outside the car, the lunatic--er, bomb maker--tried to dis-arm the device in an attempt to wheedle his way back into the vehicle. There was nothing to fear, everything was perfectly safe... until the bomb builder crossed the detonator wires. The bomb exploded, blasting away several of the man's non-vital body parts.

Police describe the hapless carpool driver as "shaken but unharmed."
