Several buildings locked down due to bomb threats at Harvard this morning. Right in the middle of finals. No sign that there are any actual bombs at this point, though.

Jeezus. What the hell?

Merry effing Christmas.

I don't know what gets into people, I really don't.

Oh, right in the middle of finals. Maybe somebody's not ready.

Hardly seems worth the consequences of getting caught, to bomb-threat your way out of finals at 'Grade-Inflation U.'

Seems like they are about to announce the all-clear.

Turns out that, yes, it was some dopey freshman who freaked out about finals and emailed in the bomb threat to get out of them.

Looking at some hard time now.

Great choice, kid. :rolleyes:

Key element being 'during finals.' Not the first time somebody issued a phoney bomb threat to get out of finals or a test.

Because of how keyed up law enforcement is nowadays though, I'd prosecute whoever did it as though an actual bomb was planted. Response to such threats play out whether it's real or bogus.
