Wire people so stoopid?

Idiots at School Go on Lockdown Over Child’s Science Project that has “Wires” Dvorak Uncensored
Students were evacuated from Millennial Tech Magnet Middle School in the Chollas View neighborhood Friday afternoon after an 11-year-old student brought a personal science project that he had been making at home to school, authorities said.

Maurice Luque, spokesman for the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department, said the student had been making the device in his home garage. A vice principal saw the student showing it to other students at school about 11:40 a.m. Friday and was concerned that it might be harmful, and San Diego police were notified.
The school majors in technology and a teacher panicked when he or she saw...wires! Oh, no. It must be a bomb! 

It took three hours(!) plus robotic investigation and x-rays to satisfy themselves it was a harmless homework project.

Fuck me. How gormlessly paranoid can you get?
