I have to say that this bomb ‘hoax’ thing the media are going on about is ridiculous. If you have no idea what I am talking about, take a look here: http://www.boston.com/news/globe/city_region/breaking_news/2007/09/mit_student_arr.html
Apparently a bread board, a few LEDs and a 9v battery make a bomb these days. Oh wait, no… they only make a bomb for people who have no fucking clue about electronics. What kinds of a fear-mongering state do we have living beside us these days. Although, I do not doubt this could happen to our own people right here in Canada.
And even worse, is that I read about this whole thing on slashdot, and the responses to the story ( http://it.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=07/09/21/1849208 ) make me sick to my stomach. The number of people saying ‘she’s lucky she didn’t get shot’, or ‘what kind of idiot would wear that to an airport’ are overwhelming. I can’t fucking believe it… Did people forget about freedom? About not being arrested and detained by the police/state without cause? When did stupidity/ignorance of something become cause for fear!!!
Sorry if I don’t make much coherence here… I’m just floored!
