Helpful hint: If you find a similar bomb casing in your yard, parachute shrouds or not, do not break out the cellphone to call the authorities. Get somewhere safe first, and use a landline if possible.
Because the more you know...

If you get the chance, the book Command and Control by Eric Schlosser is an amazing account of this type of story.
Having lived in Grand Forks, ND around the time when only the wind direction prevented a massive nuclear detonation, you get a feel for the wild west science applied during the arms race.

Wasn't there a bomb they lost? It fell into a swamp in the Carolinas or Georgia and they never found it?
Ahhh, here it is. . . .

The atomic bomb has always been defective. The main defect is that they go BOOM at all!
