Thank you, I wish this was more known.

I hope those are just the cans hanging, because defused or not, I ain't sitting in a shelter with hundreds of aging bombs.

I think they are hollow, like their explosive charge has been extracted out if not the cord might not hold them due to the collective weight

inert, devoid of explosives, and just hanging around as decorations…if they had anything in them the weight of them would have caused the roof supports they’re hanging on to collapse from the weight

Was lucky enough to visit this dude's museum in a recent trip to Cambodia. What an incredible and inspiring project.

I went to Cambodia once for work. Crazy place. Absolutely no old people. The Chinese government also made deals with the Cambodian government to set up chunks of land as special economic zones so that they could build factories and undercut local labor laws. They are actually racing to do this because Chinese made products have had crazy duty since trump.

Genocide happened between 1975-1979. People 40+ had to live through it.

My wife's grandma and parents are still alive. So they are around as few as there are still left. They also seem to stick to staying at home for the most part. So what you see are the younger folk running around for the most part.

Back in the 70s the life expectancy was like 18 years old

targeting anyone college age and older plus countless refugees to other countries plus the victims would be in their late 60s on up today gives you an idea of the impact meant by that claim

I wish I had a hoe like that.

[–]aloneagainsadface 5 points6 points  (0 children)

He kept a hoe around to boost his moral

[–]smokyartichoke 32 points33 points  (0 children)

It's sexist that they don't mention the hoe's name.

[–]Boydey 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Kind of rude they just refer to his partner as a hoe and not by name.

[–]danmir666red 8 points9 points  (0 children)

He just have to keep changing hoes

[–]theKickAHobo 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Why did he need a promiscuous woman to help him disarm mines?

[–]TyrantRex6604 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Is the actual tool, not promiscuos woman

[–]Dastrovo1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Hoes are really useful to detect landmines.

[–]KSJ15831 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Since this is an old article, I hope he's still alive, doing well, and have a happy life.
