The iPod Bomb Incident

This is a funny story I read on the official  World of Warcraft forums. A guy who is playing World of Warcraft was on his flight from the United States to Canada to meet some of his fellow clan members. He used the toilet on that flight and witnessed afterwards that the stewardesses were acting strangely. Something seemed to keep the toilet from flushing. The guy immediately thought it was his fault but decided not to tell them because of this embarrassing situation.

After a while he wanted to hear some music and was looking for his iPod but could not find it and came to the conclusion that his iPod must be the cause for the toilets failure. He told the stewardesses and realized that they already made a call about a possible bomb in this plane. Everything went back to normal up to the time the that the captain of the plane announced that they soon would land at their destination.

The plane was isolated from the other planes and all passengers had to leave it and were questioned about this incident. The guy was in for a special treatment, he did not only tell the stewardesses on the flight but also the first policemen that he saw after he left the plane.

In the interview they were asking all sorts of personal questions and kept him there for quite some time.Finally,after a long time all passengers could leave the isolation. All passengers? Well, they guy was not so lucky and this is not the end of the story. He had to stay and was taken to customs where they took a very close look at this baggage and even powered on his computer and searched their for evidence of child pornography and hate speech.

They did not find a thing and finally, after a very long unscheduled period, he was free to leave and meet his friends.
