An elderly woman freaked out everyone at a Swedish recycling center when she dropped off a live grenade. At the beginning of March, Sweden enacted a new law that allows citizens to turn in weapons to police without fear of prosecution. How the woman got the grenade, which was later determined to be the kind used in grenade-launchers, wasn’t clear. But authorities said they’ve gotten a few grenades through this program, including one from World War I, leading us to believe that this woman was possibly some kind of resistance fighter who finally dropped off her last keepsake before retiring to …  let’s see …  play jazz clarinet. That must be it.
