Approximately 600 residents living near the Frankfurt's River Main in Germany were asked to evacuate due to a bomb threat dating back almost 80 years.

Divers doing a routing maintenance dive near the Alte Brücke (Old Bridge) on Tuesday discovered a bomb that had been submerged since World War II, according to German news agency Deutsche Presse-Agentur GmbH (DPA).


The antique bomb was detonated on Saturday, 08:00 am local time, creating a massive explosion from the river's water.


And it went off without a hitch.

Divers returned underwater to make sure the device was safe.


The explosion is a sight to behold.


Even from afar, the wall of water shooting upward looked like something from a movie.



The BBC reported that the discovery of wartime bombs and other war munitions are not uncommon.

Such routine inspections taking place is reassuring, considering the amount of water traffic taking place every day.





Some expressed concern over the well-being of marine life.



Visibility underwater was "zero" and left a crater measuring 5 meters wide after the detonation, according to a local publication.




Despite the magnificence of the metropolitan geyser, the real threat of such a detonation in the city was still terrifying.



Last year, Berlin police led another controlled detonation of a wartime bomb that was discovered during a construction work in Heidestrasse.


The BBC reported that several unexploded bombs from World War II are found every year.

Routine searches are ongoing since it is believed there are 3,000 unexploded bombs still buried throughout the city.

Having said that, some stuff is just plain ... wrong.

Secrets, we all have them. Some will be spilled over time and some will go to the grave.

Mine are going to the grave. Just in case you were waiting for a truth sharing moment, there it is.

Others often feel the need to shed their secrets. Secrets can weigh on you.

So every once in awhile people start letting loose, because it's the only way to free yourself.

That's why you get a therapist, to share the most shocking, intimate details of your life. To spill and be free.

Or... naturally, you come to Reddit.

Sometimes it's time to stop the world for a few minutes, relax, and unwind. Slip into a warm bath or have a nice glass of wine on the side to really drive that comfort and relaxation home.

We work ourselves to death most days without any acknowledgment for the absolute limit to which we are pushing our bodies. With the world constantly swirling around us as this happens, it can feel a little like there is no respite.

That's why we need to learn things that really comfort us. About the world, about other people, whatever. We need some comfort to take so that we can bring some stillness into our crazy world.

Everyone has an opinion and apparently that opinion is golden advice. (Two different things)

You can give opinions, but know what you're saying and sharing.

Advice is more... heavy. It's definitive.

So beware and take "advice" with a grain of salt.

Redditor PsychedelicAirFusion wanted to hear about the times other people should've just stayed quiet with their opinions, by asking:

"What's the worst advice you have received?"
