Photo cred - Oregon

A woman was sorting through her parents' things in their home on Wellesley and Parliament, when she found what she believed was a roll of coins. Unfortunately, it wasn't a roll of coins, it was something more explodey. It turns out, her dad had had nine sticks of dynamite in his possession, and they were hanging out in a box of her parents' belongings.

Naturally, the bomb squad and several fire trucks were called, and the dynamite was taken to a secure location to be detonated. The question still remains: why would someone keep personal dynamite? And how do you forget you have old sticks of dynamite hanging around in your house?
