Why is it that every time the Boston police see circuit boards, they think"ZOMG!!! BOMB!!"? Not being a bomb expert, I have no idea what percentage of bombs actually have large circuit boards and flashing LEDs, but it seems like anyone actually trying to blow something up would NOT have bright, flashing LED pictures and nerdy messages prominently featured on their stealthy explosive device.
Also, for something to be a "hoax device," don't the creators have to intend to be...well...hoaxing something? Neither Ms. Simpson nor the Mooniniters were representing their devices as being anything other than circuit boards with lots of flashing LEDs on them - where's the hoax?

Why do you have to ask such a question? Maybe the next time someone goes into an airport with flashing lights and electrical wires wrapped around them the police will just turn the other way and when the BOMB goes off, all of the dead can be on your shoulders. You just dont get it do you?? We can not afford to take any chances. Those times are over and its time for the liberal fools in this country to wake up. How can anyone in 2007 walk into an airport with that type of apparatus on? What a Moron..
