While upgrading some of the 100-year-old plumbing in the SF Armory, Kink.com’s trusted plumber made an unusual discovery buried beneath years of dirt and old water. What was this bizarre find? A World War II 3-inch artillery shell that could still be active. Wasting no time, the San Francisco Bomb Squad arrived at the armory, evacuated the basement and used a remote controlled robot to dispose of the potentially dangerous explosive. Needless to say, it definitely was not a dull morning at the SF Armory!
