Sprinkler Pipe Shut Down LAX Terminal

Update: Originally I saw this on cnn.com but they’ve since moved the link. So, I went searching and found the story elsewhere.

Ahhh, I have to laugh at this one. Luggage security scanners detected an adjustable sprinkler drop in someone’s luggage and mistook it for a pipe bomb. I can see why they were a little nervous. [cbs5.com]
