Teacher Uses Artillery Shell as a Paperweight; It Explodes

Robert Colla, an instructor at the Ventura Adult Education center was hospitalized with severe damage to his right hand after attempting to squash a bug crawling across his desk with a paperweight. The paperweight, a 40-millimeter artillery shell he’d found years ago while hunting, exploded in the classroom, nearly severing his hand and giving him “severe burns and minor shrapnel wounds to his forearms and torso.”
