A mix-up with daylight saving time may have caused a car bomb to blow up in the face of a bumbling bomber in Dublin.
The unidentified bomber was seen fleeing from the wreckage of a ruined Volvo SUV on Sunday evening, while dripping in blood after the device that was attached to the vehicle went off early.
Clocks in Ireland were turned ahead on Sunday night.
It would appear that the bomber got his timings wrong. It could be a case where he didnt put his watch forward on Sunday [at 1am] and the timer went off too soon, the Daily Mirror reported.
After the explosion, the man was seen getting into a taxi.
We are appealing for anyone who might have picked up a person in the New Street and Clanbrassil Street area shortly after 11pm who was quite obviously suffering to come forward, said Supt. Dave Taylor of Irelands Garda press office. It was a very extensive explosion and it was a very frightening experience for the people on Long Lane, Taylor said. It is quite obvious that the car was the object of this attack.
The owner of the car runs a local business and has no criminal convictions.

“A mix-up with daylight saving time may have caused a car bomb to blow up in the face of a bumbling bomber in Dublin.”.....
A booming idiot!
Plus the GWB/Pelosi energy bill moved the change earlier in the year.
Maybe GWB planned this...
So this was a Muslim suicide bomber in Ireland? What was his target?
Day light saving time can rid the world of stupid bombers. Karma is sometimes real quick...
Irish I had set the time right.
so he just forgot to change the time on his wristwatch? or personal watch? but not on the bomb itself?
The only good thing to come out of daylight savings time since world war II.
We should make is safer for suicide bombers to kill. They shouldn’t have risk their lives to kill. I mean, what kind of world is it, where we oppress the suicide bombers into taking serious risks on the own lives to kill others?
Sound familiar? Take out “suicide bomber” and insert the word mother.
I think that’s backwards. Not setting the timer ahead would have caused it to go off later, not earlier. The timer would have had to automatically set itself to daylight time while he had the trigger set on standard time to produce an earlier explosion.
If he survived he’s not doing something right, let’s hope he doesn’t have time to learn how to make better bombs.
Was it a Prius or a Volt???
I checked with my brother in Dublin,he says it’s an April fools day joke.
Unless the bomb clock was connected to an automatic update service like cell phones are, it would remain internally consistent and not be affected by the DST change. This article doesn’t make sense.
Exactly. I wonder if the reporter’s related to that neighbor of mine who kept trying to reset the lighting timers for daylight time?
Meanwhile people are still trying or are trying to blow up more Irish.
