On Friday the UK government raised the terrorist threat level from “substantial” to “severe”.
Unfortunately, because the internet’s like that, people struggled to take such a vaguely worded warning seriously. And suddenly the internet was flooded with people making up their own terror threat levels. It went something like this.
- Police in Athens used pepper spray on protesters two days ahead of Greece's major bailout vote.
- A medical helicopter crashed in Colorado. The crash killed the pilot and injured two crew members.
