The other evening, a friend from Corsica was telling me about planting trees using salvaged World War 2 land mines.

A lot of soil in Corsica is very compacted so, after the war, people would drill a hole into the ground and drop a little explosive into it. The blast would loosen a small patch of ground and also fertilise it — the explosives used potassium nitrate, which is great for fruit trees.

So there are orchards in Corsica which were planted with explosives, and I think that's cool. 🍎 💣

Anyone else feel the need to apologize when they toot?

I feel like the only non-geek in the room but I'm glad to be here. Now to figure out where here is....
