You've probably seen de-mining on CNN or BBC.  Deminers wear body armor and use metal detectors.  They proceed incredibly slowly and carefully; poking at the dirt.  The Cambodian villagers that I went with just whack at the ground with a shovel.  It seems like insanity.  However, Akira at least knows what he's doing.  Detonating a landmine takes 15 pounds of downwards pressure.  If you hit the side of one with your shovel, it will not go off -- Don't try this at home!    6.62 (8 votes)
