LAX delays flight because someone's wifi network had scary terrorist name

Someone in the waiting area for AA's LAX-London flight created a network called "Al-Quida Free Terror Nettwork," so "out of an abundance of caution," everyone ran around like headless chickens for a while trying to figure out where the network name was coming from (cue horror music: "He's broadcasting from INSIDE THE TERMINAL!" Dun dun DUUUUN!).

Then they realized that making dumb Wifi network names wasn't a crime, that they couldn't find the person with the dumb network, and that they were being dumb, and the plane took off.

When in trouble,

Or in doubt,

Run in circles,

Scream and shout.
