Newsflash: This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb! Evacuate!

you really ****ing have to read this to believe it:

Bike Sparks Scare At Ohio University
Buildings Reopen On Campus

UPDATED: 11:17 am EST March 2, 2006

ATHENS, Ohio -- Authorities in Athens said that they were investigating a mountain bike that put the Ohio University campus on high alert Thursday morning.

Athens Acting Fire Chief Ken Gilbraith said that the bike had a sticker on it that said, "This bike is a pipe bomb." He said the university police discovered it overnight, parked outside a campus restaurant.

OU closed four buildings, police blocked streets around the Oasis restaurant, the fire department brought in off-duty firefighters, and the Columbus fire department's bomb squad was called in.

Gilbraith said the bomb experts attacked the bike with a high-pressure spray of water, then pried it open with a hydraulic tool and found no bomb inside.

The university remained in session throughout the incident. The four buildings were reopened by 9 a.m.

To be honest, I'm surprised it's taken this long for that to happen.

Funny ****...

Americans are so 9-11 crazy it's ridiculous!

One has to be a total moron to not see that it's just a manufactured sticker. Yeah right, like there's really a bomb in the frame tubes, duhh!!

I think the cops just want to look important and /or just have something to do. Get a life! These people are imbicels - "Ooooh, gotta be careful, can't take chances against TERRORISTS!"

At OU. university of oklahoma. we had all classes canceled when a lunchbag was left on a trashcan for hours. Someone called it in. This was 2 days after joel heinrich III blew himself up outside of our football stadium durng a game. Someone sold a tooth they found near the blast sight to some magasin for 100 bucks. I bet it was just some tooth they had pulled haha.
