Actually considering the body was in one piece, they probably didn't use a lot of explosive. I'm wondering how the command detonated it, an encrypted signal or did the robot drag a hard line behind it? I'm reminded of the old SNL skits about the Land Shark, "Knock, Knock." , "Who's th...

I refrained from telling her that they had bobbed the points off her ears when she was a baby. She would probably have believed me.
Strange, she was a crazed pagan so she ended up married to a Christian minister. :?
