Teen threatens to hijack plane while playing WoW

There should be technical terms for multiple levels of stupid, but for now I'll just make some up: if you have to gauge the actions of the guy in this story and your choices are A Little Slow, Stone Cold Stupid, Colossal Moron and Drooling Vegetable, it would fall somewhere between the third and the fourth. What happened here is that an eighteen year old Johnson County, Indiana resident decided to announce he was planning to hijack a plane. While playing World of Warcraft, no less.

The Indy Star reports that the teen was playing the game yesterday morning when he announced that he "was going to board a plane at 7:30 to Chicago and that (he) was going to try and kill as many Americans as possible". A facilitator from an online gaming center reported the kid after hearing him repeat himself a few times. When confronted, the teen at first said that someone hacked into his computer, then backpedaled and said he was just kidding around. How humbling it must be to have your e-penis so swiftly and suddenly confiscated!

A rep from Blizzard who had gone over the chat logs said they seemed very serious and not like a joke at all. In the meantime, the teen's computer has been seized by the FBI, who are looking further into the case. Charges could possibly be filed with the U.S. Attorney's office, but it hasn't gone that far yet. I bet he's not allowed to play WoW anymore. He ought to call this guy up for advice (I hear anal remote application is a cure-all).
