Pilot, your post made me laugh out loud. We are living in insane times, itisi. The insanity is a result of fear and the fear is being magnified by constant "news" bombardment mostly from "talking heads" that make their living entertaining us. They have taught us how to build mountains out of molehills.
Pilot, LOL!!!!!! How true, how true, we live in insane times♠♠♠
LOL, that was a funny post Pilot. God forbid if someone finds a vacuum tube laying around, they would probably think it was some kind of high tech detonator.
If I know the story correct a passerby saw it and called police.
I think a better word would be "scare"....
Unless I am reading the above incorrectly, I don't see how this was a "threat" - a threat would imply some form of malicious act intended to illicit a negative response. Did someone call the police in a threatening manner with regards to this device?
