Here is your daily dose of Darwin.

According to Newsday, a Long Island, N.Y. woman found two pipe bombs in her driveway.

But rather than, you know, panic, freak out, call the police, run away, and scream, the woman picked up — reached out with her hands and picked up — the two pipe bombs, put them into her car, and began driving to the local police station.

The woman called the police to say she was coming by with a few bombs. The dispatcher told her to immediately pull over and get out of her car. A police bomb squad responded and used a robotic arm to remove the bombs. They did not detonate.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is investigating.
