A bit of late Halloween news from London:

Students in 'Weird Science' Halloween party arrested under anti-terror laws

A group of students had their 'Mad Scientist' party brought to an abrupt end when police mistook them for terrorists.

The private party, held in Hackney, north London, was organised by a group of friends dressed in white laboratory coats and wigs, who put on a display of theatrical 'experiments' to entertain guests.

But when police entered the building for a routine check in the early hours of Sunday morning, they discovered scientific debris and plastic skeletons and mistook it for terrorist paraphernalia or drug-making equipment....

That's why you have to clean up BEFORE you go to bed... (and the reason parties like this should be thrown on private property.)

Argh. I hate stupid people.

I'm still trying to figure out how terrorists or drug dealers would use the plastic skeletons. I suppose the terrorists could use them as part of some threatening message.
