notes to self: cool computer art code

This just in...
Man flies through Houston with HALF A BOMB. From the Houston Chronicle (seen on boingboing.net):

The report states that a man with a Middle Eastern name and a ticket for a Delta Airlines flight to Atlanta shook his head when screeners asked if he had a laptop computer in his baggage, but an X-ray machine operator detected a laptop.

A search of the man's baggage revealed a clock with a 9-volt battery taped to it and a copy of the Quran, the report said. A screener examined the man's shoes and determined that the "entire soles of both shoes were gutted out."

No explosive material was detected, the report states. A police officer was summoned and questioned the man, examined his identification, shoes and the clock, then cleared him for travel, according to the report.

Ah, a blast from the past. The Saybrook dining hall. College is definitely wasted on the young.
