Paypal blown up

LOL - in other news, some dweeb tried to blow up Paypal's headquarters building:
An explosive left outside the headquarters of eBay-owned PayPal blew out a window Tuesday evening but caused no injuries, according to eBay.

San Jose, Calif.-based PayPal, an online payment system, closed the building on Wednesday as FBI agents and local police investigated, said eBay spokesman Hani Durzi. The blast occurred at about 7:25 p.m., and at that time about 45 employees occupied the building, said Durzi.

The explosion triggered the security alarm and officials from the San Jose Fire department later ordered the building, which is typically occupied by about 1,900, to be evacuated. Employees are scheduled to return to work tomorrow, Durzi said. He added that PayPal's operations were never interrupted....

Capt. Jose Guerrero, of the San Jose Fire Department, said it's believed that the device "was not highly sophisticated."
Nutjobs on the loose, I tell ya. Sure, I have no love for Paypal (I cancelled my account with them a long time ago), but this is just ridiculous.
