fashionable

A new spin on the human bomb.

Want a slave? Lure someone to a private location, strap a bomb with a timer to them, and make it very clear that they need to obey your commands in order to get the device removed in time. Of course, if they're stopped by the police, they're screwed.

What a horrible way for your life to end -- it begs for a punishment that is worse than what we give "normal" murderers. Thing is, you know there's someone in Hollywood who is slavering at the idea of making this into a movie. I wonder whether this idea will catch on amongst terrorists too?
