Couldn't have happened to nicer guys.

Apparently a group of terrorists in eastern Pakistan were a little iffy on fuse timing, but great at comedic timing.

The mental picture of some guy in a robe riding a bicycle down the road and suddenly exploding is going to keep me chuckling for the rest of the day. :)

One has to wonder how they will explain the whole concept of pre-ordination in this case?

Did he say Allah is great before Allah caused him to go "pop" a bit early or was this what he was supposed to do regardless.

Interesting quandry....

But what about root causes?

I mean, aside from them being illiterate ignorant adherents to a retarded death cult, that is?

On the other hand, ignorant doesn't really describe them. They aren't stupid because they haven't learned, they are stupid because they have rejected learning. So I'll take Willful Stupidity for a thousand, Alex.

Perhaps he'll start a trend?

I long for the day when the Earth will be rid of them (Terrorists, not peaceful adherents to Islam, like my brother-in-law).

"The severed head of one of the militants was found in a nearby field"
When you mentally visualize this little slap-stick incident, don't leave out that part!

I prefer "Not-so-smart bombs."

I once heard a story about a similar Palestinian mishap.
The group which prepared the bomb and one transporting it used different time zones. I think the time fuse was set according to Israeli daylight savings time, while those transporting the bomb ignored the time zone of the 'evil occupators'. *kB*
