A Holliston, Massachusetts High School parking lot was shut down by
officials after someone reported what police thought was a “bomb” in a student’s car – turns out, they misheard the word. The caller was reporting a “bong,” not a bomb, Holliston Public Schools said in a statement. The anonymous phone call caused an immediate shutdown of the parking lot and response by administrators, police, and fire officials. Through electronic means and interviews, officials identified the caller and the student who they believed the caller was reporting. Police said the caller “emphatically and convincingly” told school officials that they had indeed said “bong” on the phone. Officials removed the student whose car was in question from class to conduct an investigation. Officials interviewed the student and searched their person, backpack, locker, and car.(https://goo.gl/qdPMAh)

Used in a sentence:
“A shaded lamp and a waving blind,
And the beat of a clock from a distant floor:
On this scene enter--winged, horned, and spined -
A longlegs, a moth, and a dumbledore;
While 'mid my page there idly stands
A sleepy fly, that rubs its hands . . . “

A Boca Raton, Florida movie theater was evacuated after a popcorn maker triggered a fire alarm and some people mistakenly reported what they believed were gunshots. Boca Raton police cleared the theater after the fire alarm sounded and some people reported gunshots fired. Officers who responded to the theater approached the building with weapons drawn, unnerving moviegoers. Esmeralda Romero said she was in the theater when the alarm went off but wasn’t concerned until police showed up with weapons in their hands. She said, “I thought it was just someone that burned the popcorn. Then the police showed up with their guns drawn. Management came out and told us to leave.” After evacuating the theater and searching it, police reported on Twitter that there was “no indication of shots fired at this time.” (https://goo.gl/qdzygU)

MOMENT OF DUH:Brought To You By LearnWithoutLoans.com (Find Funding For College)
A man was mauled to death by a wounded bear after he attempted to take a selfie with the animal. Prabhu Bhatara and a group of friends were returning from a wedding when he stopped to use the bathroom in the Nabarangpur district of Odisha, India. That's when he spotted the injured animal. The other passengers in the SUV tried to stop Bhatara, but his mind was made up. The bear charged at Bhatara, killing him after a brief struggle. Forest officials said he died at the scene. Authorities say his companions watched and recorded the entire incident on their cellphones instead of trying to help.
