*grin* … “A “bomb robot” was sent to investigate a suspicious package left at a bus stop in Lompoc, Calif. After blowing the red-taped package open, authorities declared it an “obvious hoax” and vowed to find the prankster to bill him $3,000 in response costs. Meanwhile, an unidentified third-grade Lompoc boy lost his science experiment when he boarded his school bus — a box that would protect an enclosed egg from breaking when it was dropped. One of the boy’s friends notified police when he put the two incidents together. A Lompoc Police spokesman said the boy would not be charged in the incident, and “He should find some comfort in knowing” that it took a detonation charge and a hard squeeze by the robot’s “hand” to finally break the egg.” (Lompoc Record) (via This is True)
