...and a plane is being held on the outside the gate at Dulles because a white powder was found in the first class bathroom. Hello? Breaking, unsubstantiated news is ruining this site.

I don't know that that's unsubstantiated rumor: 5 people ARE in a hospital in Genoa, the question is whether or not the powdery substance is a bioagent or not.

That's funny, machus! The second story is as unsubstantiated as the first! "Gli esami finora effettuati hanno dato esito negativo, ma sono in corso altre indagini batteriologiche che richiedono del tempo", ha detto il dottot Giuseppe Caristo, un dirigente dell'ospedale, che non ha voluto precisare il grado di sicurezza dei test finora effettuati."

Could it have been the same moron that said "the West will continue to conquer peoples, like it conquered communism"

Gut tells me it's a hoax too, but nonetheless fascinating. The first non-US threat/attack/hoax after 9/11 (that I'm aware of).
