Update 3:22 PM: She's been arrested in Rotterdam in the Netherlands. Apparently, the "I can't be a terrorist, I'm a white girl" tactic didn't pan out.

Oh Sarah, thank you for volunteering to be a cautionary example to the next generation of dumb teenagers.

Sarah, a Dutch teen who went by the name @QueenDemetriax_ on Twitter until her account was suspended, thought of, like, a great prank. She decided to make a full-out Al Qaida (sic) threat on a passenger airline on social media in front of everyone. I'm sure someone has thought of it before, but never has everyone else on social media gotten the opportunity to watch a suddenly horrified smartass kid who just got in big trouble try to talk their way out of it.
