Bomber Forgets About Daylight Saving Time When Setting Timer
Well, this certainly qualifies as a bad day at work:
Irish police believe that a gangland bomber blew himself up after he forgot about the clocks changing for summer time while he was planting a bomb on Sunday.
The police are waiting to interview a man who, it is suspected, was severely injured after the bomb he was planting went off early.
The suspected bomber was seen fleeing the area in Dublin with “blood dripping down his face” after an explosive device planted under a Volvo SUV went off.
The police have suggested that the suspect accidently injured himself in the explosion because he forgot to set his watch forward on the morning of the attack.
“This certainly was a high-grade explosive used in this bomb. It wasn’t garbage stuff. It would appear the bomber got his timings wrong,” a police source told the Mirror.
Pay attention, people!
