It looks like the wacky men and women of airport law enforcement are up to their old hijinks again. After a routine training exercise, the people whose sole job it is to keep you safe at the airport apparently forgot to pick up one of their live explosives—until workers stumbled upon the dynamite four days later.
Instagram's most famous overcompensator, millionaire fake breast enthusiast Dan Bilzerian, was arrested in December on felony explosives charges as he returned from allegedly kicking a woman in the face at Art Basel. Two months later, he's now free and clear after pleading no contest to a lesser charge and agreeing to star in a PSA as punishment.
Dan Bilzerian, a millionaire and avowed asshole with more than 5 million Instagram followers, was arrested at LAX Tuesday, and was being held without bail as of late Tuesday night. It's not yet clear whether his arrest has anything to do with the model he allegedly kicked in the face at a Miami club over the weekend.
An unnamed FBI official has told CBS News that at least one of the explosive devices detonated in Boston yesterday appears to have been improvised from a conventional pressure-cooker. Unnamed law enforcement officials don't exactly have the strongest record of credibility in the immediate aftermath of events like these, but federal authorities are well-acquainted with this type of IED.
About 45,000 people evacuated Koblenz, Germany this weekend so that experienced detonators could safely defuse two World War II-era bombs that have been hanging out in the Rhine all these years, threatening their lives. Sounds dramatic, doesn't it? Yet as far as drama and action goes, the operation was completely underwhelming.
A University of Colorado biologist working with the Pentagon is developing plants that can detect bombs. Yes: Terrorism-fighting plants that change color in the presence of certain chemicals. The 21st century is wild, isn't it?
