Central PA police called when router falls from sky

The bomb squad in Carlisle, PA “neutralized” something that fell out of the sky triggered a total panic in the town. What was the bomb? It was a wireless router wrapped in duct tape that a man was using to grab free Wi-Fi from a nearby library.

Here’s a note to cops: the vast majority of items in the world are not bombs. Especially things that look like the kind of bombs you’d see on TV. If it appears to be something Bruce Willis would throw out of an ascending helicopter at the end of Die Hardest there is a 99.99% chance that it is not a bomb.

Oh well. At least they got to use the bomb squad’s “mechanical” neutralization solution. I suspect it was a hammer.
