Ok, responses in no particular order:

  • inexplicably holding Play-Doh - come ON. It's Play-doh. It's meant to be held. It's not "leave at home-doh".
  • Star Simpson - back in my day, I'd have said that was a made up name. Kids these days, though, I don't know.
  • shocked and appalled - yes and no. What kind of an idiot would wear a protoboard with LEDs on it? Oh, that's right, there's an entire campus full of them. Maybe Maj. Scott Pare, the airport's commanding officer, doesn't get over to Cambridge very often.
  • fake bomb - please, let's maintain a distinction here between "device intended to scare people" and "device that some people assumed was explosive".

Perhaps some red cardboard cylinders that suggest dynamite, even if that is a quaint and cartoonish choice of explosive.
  • shocked and appalled (again) - Yeah, come on, who would wear flashing light gizmos on their clothing into an airport? Only about 50% of all kids with the blinkinlights shoes, right?
  • under arrest at submachine gunpoint - even if it's an overreaction, and I believe it is, a useful motto might be: DON'T FRIGHTEN THE MEN WITH THE GUNS.

  • No mudslides for me, thank you.

    Hey, is this thing on? I was just sending email to a mailing list (nothing exciting, don't feel insulted if you're not on it) that was thinking…

  • Trivial

    So, this past weekend, a bunch of my friends / acquaintences / teammates got together and competed in a local trivia competition. There are a few…
