Starbucks Bombing Inspired by Fight Club

New York police have apprehended a 17-year-old aspiring Tyler Durden who they say was responsible for the May 25 bombing of an Upper East Side Starbucks. Why did he do it? Kyle Shaw claims he was inspired by the movie Fight Club and had been in the process of launching his very own "Project Mayhem." Adorable! [NYT via Movieline]
