I'm a PhD student in Chemical engineering and doing research on gas hydrates. I do research using high pressure reactors.

This morning I was taking the bus to work and mentioned on the phone to someone how we collect our high pressure samples using [sample cylinders](http://store.clarksonlab.com/images/products/detail/K27851.jpg)...

Except... we commonly use the term "sample bomb"... And I said that on the phone...

I got a few eyes on me but nothing too alarming until i got off the bus about 15 minutes later and 2 police officers were waiting for me.

They asked me a bunch of questions and I tried to explain how a sample bomb isn't actually a bomb... They even made a few calls to corroborate what I was telling them before letting me go...

TL;DR Almost got arrested for using the research related term "sample bomb" in public.
