This past Sunday night, clocks were turned ahead in Ireland. But at least one man didn’t take the time change into account, as he apparently forgot to set his watch forward…and that mistake literally blew up in his face.

The man was a car-bomber, and he was seen fleeing the Dublin crime scene while “dripping in blood,” after the device exploded too early. He then stumbled into a taxi and has yet to be apprehended.

According to a senior source, “it would appear that the bomber got his timings wrong.” Read more about the attack here.

See? Daylight Savings Time really IS dangerous, after all…
