Safer Robbery

Two men brought a friend to the hospital. He’d been knocked out, they said, falling down the stairs. But it was actually a flying bit of metal — from a condom machine. The 29-year-old from Munster, Germany, blew up the machine. He set up an explosive device and headed for his car, but he hadn’t managed to get the door closed when the bomb went off. The man died, and his two friends were arrested. They didn’t even take any money — or condoms, which were found on the street. (AC/Germany Local) ...How would a condom machine go out, if not with a bang?
