Stupid Bomb Squad?

So Boston getting scared of some aquateen hungerforce litebrite mooninites is bad enough. But this is just stupid, police blew up 2 of 3 CD players set on timers to spout profanity in a curch during service.

http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/02/22/chu....ap/index.html

and it gets worse, in Ireland a roll of tape with the initials of their own CSI unit was found outside a rail station, so they stopped traffic and detenonated the roll of tape!

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/northern_ireland/6387857.stm

What the hell is the world coming to? Why are people so stupid? Sometimes it hurts my head its so dumb. And my friends laughed at me in the past when I have proposed mandatory euthanasia for the stupid!

Blue Skies,
Dave

To be fair, most people, when given the chance to blow something up or not blow something up, will always opt for the boom.

Like Einstein said, mankind's stupidity is infinite.

Speaking of which...
Here's a clever way to get email addresses from the naive:
http://20questionquizzes.com/

You give them your address to take the questionaire to see if you are stupid. I imagine all the spam answers that burning question.

The CD player deal does have me puzzled, as by removing them and moving them, most of any potential danger has been eliminated. Popping one would enable a tech to ascertain whether any explosives were present. Two might have been just because the squad was there. Not to mention, you really can't assume anything (though why they thought they might have been hazardous to begin with I can't figure).

The Ireland incident is completely understandable. In the land of IRA, if somebody can't come up and absolutely identify and claim an object, it's suspect. Those boys can make a bomb the size of a pack of gum.

In England, a while back, the squad blew a scooter that was suspicious, even though it was parked outside a DMV office, where its owner was inside renewing her registration. Tell me that wouldn't put a damper on your day!
