Multiplying Like Rabbits

Bombs, I mean... first, we had Hinrichs blow himself up at OU during the OU/KSU game. Then, last Friday, there was an explosive device found at a UCLA apartment. And, today, three explosive devices were found near the dorms at Georgia Tech.
Three explosive devices found in a courtyard between two Georgia Tech dormitories on the East Campus Monday morning were part of a "terrorist act," an Atlanta police official said.

One of the devices exploded, injuring the custodian who found them inside a plastic bag. Two others were detonated by a bomb squad.
Off the top of my head, I can come up with three possibilities:
  1. copy-cats wanting to make the news
  2. a group of jihadi-wannabes on college campuses around the country, trying to put us on edge, fearing for our lives
  3. separate, disgruntal engineering students who have come to the end of their ropes all at the same time
Why do none of those options appeal to me?

What makes the Georgia Tech incident interesting is that authorities have already labled it a "terrorist act." What do they know?
