I think, in the U.S. anyway, that very few bomb threats turn out to be
real. I guess if you work in England or Ireland it's different. I've
only had to leave because of a bomb threat once, and it wasn't really a
threat -- the day of the Oklahoma City bombing, state agencies here in
OK were told to lock the doors and go home just in case.
