Maybe It Was Converting Into Metric That Threw Them Off

"Now, it is from little misdemeanors that major felonies grow. And it is my duty -- it is ANYBODY'S duty! -- to stop them before they get too far.  NOW THE LAW MUST BE UPHELD!"

And, with the completion of the oath, you renew your membership in good standing with the Junior Matlock Club, where we look at criminals who really should consider another line of work because they just don't have what it takes for a life of crime.

You know, the economy is tough all over the world.  Everybody is trying to figure out how to get some cash.  That includes some guys in Malliss, Germany, who decided to try to at B&E to their resumes.  The plan was simple -- they were going to use explosives to blow open the doors of a bank, hit the safe, and abscond with the ATM.  There was a stolen van ready to receive everything, and they'd be on their way.

Well, either someone miscalculated or they watch too much MythBusters.  They wound up leveling the building itself that the bank was in.  I should note that the safe and the ATM survived intact and still worked.  Police found the stolen van had been torched a few miles away.

Other countries like to say we Americans are stupid.  At least we know to blow up the safe and leave the building intact.
