In the small town of Petrozavodsk in the north western Republic of Karelia, Gregor the post master is sorting through a small container on wheels which had just been delivered to the post office full of packages when he discovers a shoe box size package Wrapped In Brown Paper making a strange ticking sound. Thinking it could be a terrorist bomb Gregor carefully places the package on the front wooden counter then flees along with two other employees out onto the crowded street where he uses his mobile phone to call Russia's Anti-Terrorist Bomb Squad.
Half an hour goes by when finally the Russian Anti-Terrorist Bomb Squad turn up in their unmarked armour plated lorry and set up down the road from the post office and promptly take control of the crime scene. A remote control robot is unloaded straight away that runs on rubber tank tracks, is mounted with a digital camera, mircophone and shotgun.
After checking out the remote control robot is in working order it proceeds up the footpath through the entrance of the post office where it halts about three feet away from the wooden counter. After levelling the shotgun at the package Wrapped In Brown Paper and blazing away bits of brown paper, cardboard and pieces of timber fly through the air, when out pops a gold coloured object that lands in front of the remote control robot merrily ticking away and is identified after closer inspection by using the mounted digital camera as only a gold plated vibrator which had turned itself on during transit and not a terrorist bomb as first thought.
This incident really occured not long after terrorists bombed Domodedovo Airport near Moscow in January leaving 37 people dead. So you can just imagine the Russian people would be a little bit nervous and on edge, thankfully it was only an innocent vibrator which is not even gold plated it's just my bizarre mind going into overdrive and adding bits and pieces to the original story in the newspaper. All places mentioned are real as is the Russian Anti-Terrorist Bomb Squad.
