Didn't Darwin Have a Theory About These People?

40 mm paperweight severs man's hand
April 5, 2006

VENTURA, CALIFORNIA -- A teacher who kept a 40 mm shell on his desk as a paperweight blew off part of his right hand when he apparently used the object to try to squash a bug, authorities say.

The 5-inch shell exploded Monday while Robert Colla was teaching 20 to 25 students at an adult education class. No one else was hurt; Colla was reported stable at a hospital.

The teacher slammed the shell down in an attempt to kill something on his desk, a fire official said.
