    California teacher blows hand off
    trying to squash bug with artillery shell


    Wed Apr 05, 10:50 AM EST

    VENTURA, Calif. (of course!) - A teacher who kept a 40-mm artillery shell
    on his desk as a paperweight blew off part of his hand when he apparently
    used the ammunition to try to squash a bug, authorities say.

    The 13-centimetre-long shell exploded Monday while Robert Colla was
    teaching 20 to 25 students at an adult education class.

    Part of Colla's right hand was severed and he suffered severe burns and
    minor shrapnel wounds to his forearms and torso, fire Capt. Tom Weinell said.
    No one else was injured. He was reported in stable condition at a hospital.

    The teacher slammed the shell down in an attempt to kill something
    that was buzzing or crawling across the desk, said Fire Marshal Glen Albright.

    Colla found the 40-mm round while hunting years ago and "obviously he
    didn't think the round was live," said Dennis Huston, who teaches computer design with Colla.
    So he picked up the shell and struck the flat, firing end on the desk?
    The one that's supposed to get hit with a firing pin in a cannon?
    Someone needs a physics lesson STAT!

    I hope that the bug lived.

    I have never seen nor heard of adult education class that uses a shotgun while teaching. Let alone, a hired moron.
