Train Passenger’s Exploding Bladder Reported as Bomb Threat

A shinkansen bullet train bound for Tohoku made an emergency stop when distressed passengers claimed a man had announced there would be an explosion on the train.

The train made the emergency stop at around 9 a.m. last Friday after some particularly paranoid passengers half heard a drunken man’s telephone conversation in which he apparently stated his bladder was going to explode.

Alternately, the passengers may have heard the whole conversation and simply weren't thrilled about the idea of being violently doused in urine.  (Via Shutterstock)

Passengers panicked and alerted authorities, not realizing the man, rather than preparing to detonate a real bomb on board was simply preparing to commit a urine-based suicide bombing of his social life; although we assume the type of guy to be stone drunk on a crowded train at 9 a.m. doesn’t have much of a social life to begin with. We’re betting the person on the other line was his infinitely patient sex hotline mistress.
