Man Tries to Open a Grenade... You know how this one is going to end By Kate Seamons, Newser Staff Suggested by sailor86 Posted Jul 28, 2010 1:34 PM CDT 22 comments Comments (Getty Images) (Newser) – Today, in the Brainiac Department: A man goes walking in a field in Croatia and stumbles upon a grenade left over from the Homeland War of the early '90s. What's his first thought? Scrap metal! The 53-year-old took the grenade home and attempted to break it apart in his garage using a grinder, reports the Croatian Times. Shockingly, it then exploded. More shockingly, he didn't die. He remains in serious condition at a local hospital.
