[A prank caller] tricked workers at a Minnesota Burger King into smashing the windows of the restaurant to keep it from exploding.
Which is pretty fucking funny — though it might cost the restaurant chain 10-30k$ and if anyone gets fired, it should be the manager who was caught by the prank and instructed his staff to start smashing the windows.
But it seems that there was another similar case "in Shawnee, Oklahoma, on Thursday night" ; and there are reports of other cases. So, Burger King's upper management should have been raising the alarm to their store-level management already. Or, perhaps, they might hire people with at least a trace of general science background.
This sounds more fun than pulling the wings off flies — and ethically is more defensible. Where is the printed Yellow Pages
Hang on! When did Burger King get promoted from "sludge purveyor" to "restaurant." And how many restaurants are sueing them for defamation and reputational harm?
An adequate bootstrap is a contradiction in terms.
