Advances in explosive technology have made dynamite so incredibly stable that it can be cut into pieces using a knife. Dynamite is completely inert until detonated making dynamite safe to tamp down into holes which are then filled with foam which expands and hardens to keep the dynamite in place

The Bombing of Laos

Laos-bomb

Per capita, Laos is the most bombed country in the entire world, having more bombs dropped upon it during the Vietnam War than that which was dropped upon Germany and Japan combined during World War II. Many of these bombs never detonated and thus many Laotian farmers, children, and other civilians have been permanently disabled, maimed, or killed while working or playing in fields when these clandestine explosives suddenly detonate without warning
