  Come friendly bombs...
Interesting huh?
Well let me tell you a story, not a pretty story, or even a funny story. In fact only a moving story if you are the Eastern European crone involved (though she may be an amalgam of an unknown quantity of Eastern European crones...) Anyway it is said that when a child dies, their soul resides in a hole in the ground during the period of mourning. If the mother cries too much, the hole fills with the water of her tears, and the soul 'drowns' (folklore isn't all that hot on such inconsistencies). Anyway, a salutary lesson to any Eastern Europeans out there on the verge of bereavement.
