It's all fun and games until somebody's gloves start melting in a sodium fire

Oh, those wacky MIT kids. Seems every year, they steal a bar of sodium from the school chemistry labs so they can drop it in the Charles and watch it explode.

Only this year, the bar didn't totally dissolve and now we have five people with burns on the other side of the river.

If Mayor Menino were to get outraged about this, I'd be right with him. But he probably exhausted his yearly outrage quota back in February.
