A couple from Goldsboro, North Carolina, were shocked when they discovered such a grenade inside the drawer of an antique sewing machine. The grenade was identified as a German model from World War One. And yes, though it was over 90 years old, the grenade was still live.
The couple has no idea where the grenade came from. The sewing machine was passed on from family to family and travelled from South Carolina to Florida and finally to North Carolina. During that entire time, the grenade, thankfully, did not detonate. [ABC News 11 via Fark]
