Potential Future Darwin Award winner

Darwin Award Art Supplies: $15
Black Sweatshirt: $10
Actual Construction: $0
Getting loaded guns pointed at you for wearing what looks like a Bomb at a major Airport: Priceless.

As per the NY Daily News:

Star Simpson, a nineteen-year-old from Hawaii, cobbled together a
computer circuit board, wires, and the Play-Doh into a contraption that
she wore in plain view over a black hooded sweatshirt, Pare said.

IMO, that wasn’t the smartest ting to do especially since this is the city that flipped out over guerrilla marketing back in February 2007.

Art or Not, going to an airport wearing a Black Sweatshirt with Wires, circuitry and playing with Playdoh was just asking for trouble.


Music I’m listening to right Now:

The Taste by Five for Fighting from “The Battle for Everything“. Five for Fighting is John Ondrasik.

  1. Actually the cops did a ATHF scare again. See this link on Salon for more info.


  2. Hardly matches the description the Authorities gave. It’s just a breadboard with a Battery.

    Not the best thing to wear to an Airport, but hardly worth the charges.
