11-Year-Old Causes Bomb Scare with Gatorade Bottle Based Science Project

Well the title pretty much says it all.

An un-named, fairly genius 11-year-old built a motion detector using gatorade bottles and some electronics.  Unfortunately, some idiotic VP flipped a shit and called the bomb squad to investigate the science project.  The bomb squad searched the entire school (and evacuated it), the kid's home, and x-rayed the science project.

In the end, when everyone calmed down and realized this really was only a genius science project, the principle didn't apologize.  He simply suggested the child and his family seek counseling.

Lesson of the day: If you're smarter than your principle and he's a jerk, you're fucked.
