[Why do people shoot at signs? I just don’t get it. I know that they do because I have seen a lot of shot-up road signs.
And shooting at an explosives magazine is well beyond shooting at the yellow 35 MPH caution sign for going around the curve ahead. It’s nominating yourself for a Darwin award. You would think that seeing a sign that that even hints at “EXTREME DANGER! EXPLOSIVES!” would be enough to give Cletus a clue to keep the muzzle pointed in some other direction. But no. We have to have a government regulation to put the sign in a location such that it has a proper backstop between it and the nearby magazine.
At times one has to wonder about the viability of the human race or speculate that perhaps we discovered fire 100,000 years too soon.—Joe]
