Is it possible to be that stupid?

8 posts in this topic

BOSTON — An MIT student wearing what turned out to be a fake bomb was arrested at gunpoint Friday at Logan International Airport and later claimed it was artwork, officials said.

 

Star Simpson, 19, had a computer circuit board and wiring in plain view over a black hooded sweatshirt she was wearing, said State Police Maj. Scott Pare, the commanding officer at the airport.

 

"She said that it was a piece of art and she wanted to stand out on career day," Pare said at a news conference. "She claims that it was just art, and that she was proud of the art and she wanted to display it."

Seriously, could anyone smart enought to get into MIT not know you don't go into an airport with a bomb on your chest - fake or not?

Stupid, Star and Simpson all start with the letter s, maybe there's a connection.

 

On the bright side, apparently TSA would also stop any Borg drones trying to board airplanes!

It is a shame that unfortunately it IS possible to be that stupid. For further proof of human stupidity just go to http://darwinawards to see plenty examples of human stupidity. Alas being accepted to a legendary institution of higher education does not mean you have common sense.

 

SARCASM ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I'm sure her parents are very proud of her common sense and the good judgement that their daughter has shown and the publicity it is garnering for their family.

She has to be seriously out of touch with the real world to wear something like that to an airport. :)

When I looked at some of the photos - it was like she had a smirk on her face - like she was amused by the whole thing - almost like it was planned.
