A Garden Grove High School student was arrested, CBS-2 reported yesterday, for planning to plant a bomb at school. Friends say he wasn't really going to plant a bomb.

There are some things you just shouldn't do in jest, however: make a joke about having a bomb while in flight, and save an arial image of your school to your hard drive with after labelling a spot "bomb destination." The latter, that's what this teenager did. If you do feel compelled to save jokey/threatening files to your computer, don't show your buddy if he happens to spend lots of time on MySpace.

That's how the word spread about his alleged bomb threat plan. Somebody heard it about it on MySpace, and they told two friends, and so on and so on. We can just see it: MySpace Profile - 17 years old, Male, Garden Grove, CALIFORNIA, United States ... Junior at Garden Grove High School ... don't go 2 bio Wed my friend is going 2 bomb school hahahaha... Go ARGONAUTS!
