Many of us in our college days may have used, or considered using, one of several excuses students commonly deploy to get out of an exam. I have a family emergency! My laptop exploded! The dubiously qualified school doctor says I have "test taking anxiety"!

Loyola University
student Evelyn Hubbard really did not want to take her exam, so instead of visiting her professor's office and crying hysterically like normal people do, on Nov. 17 she decided to drop a line to the campus police saying she would blow up a campus building and kill five professors.

From an email account she created on a campus computer and her own cell phone (she's clearly a master criminal), Hubbard sent these messages to the campus police:

[I have a] Mamba pistol with five bullets in it for five professors in Monroe Hall .... I have no sympathy for any accidental casualties!!!

(FBI agents would later discover the weapon mentioned was not one she actually owned, but a brand name she found out about online.)

You are really trying my patience! I am on the verge of blowing that bitch up and you'll be renovating from the foundation!

The FBI arrested Hubbard Dec. 9, and she was released from jail the same day on a $10,000 bond. No word on whether or not her fake bomb threats succeeded in getting her out of the exam, so just continue using the "family emergency" excuse until we know for sure.
