I've just heard that someone was arrested in Pentagon with a bomb. I can't confirm this.

My building(Federal Building) is in a lock down again.

Reuters reports a bomb threat was called to the Pentagon by a man with a middle east accent.

He was arrested approximatel three hours ago.

A candidate for "Dumbass of the Year" award, for sure. Even worse than the idiots who make obscene phone calls, oblivious to Caller ID.

This is one thing I will never understand. Whenever there is a big "event" there always seems to be countless follow-ups (usually faked, but sometimes real) in smaller forms - call them "copycats" if you will. Can it be that there are seriously people out there (other than in the mid-east) who see these actions and think "yea - they got it right - I need to go do something like that right now"? Or even worse - who's the schmuck who thinks it'd be "funny" to call in a fake bomb threat right now just to see the people scramble?

WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?!?!?!?!?!?
