Anaheim police were reviewing video surveillance footage and examining Internet postings and social media as part of their investigation of an apparent dry ice explosion at Disneyland. The dry ice appeared to have been placed in a plastic bottle that was left in a trash can in Toontown. The explosion was confined to the can, according to the Anaheim Police Department.

I love how what amounts to a prank includes words like "bomb" and "device." And the idiots who think they need more police presence.

After 911, we started seeing high school kids arrested and have their lives basically ruined for this. It's too bad. Dry ice bombs are awesome (although letting one off in a public place isn't very smart).

To me, the words "pops" in the headline is more descriptive than "explosion," or "bomb." Certainly the latter two words will get more buzz and headlines, but they seem to be misleading in regards to the seriousness of this non-event.

That's why I didn't post this story last night. I wanted to see what they learned, and use more appropriate verbiage even if the newspapers didn't.

A law in California that defines "destructive device" includes a list of "weapons" including "[a]ny sealed device containing dry ice (CO2) or other chemically reactive substances assembled for the purpose of causing an explosion by a chemical reaction".[9][10]
