If you feel terror, then the terrorists have already won.

This is NOT what a bomb looks like.


I was just thinking about this while watching Spooks (Mi5) the other day. Why would a bombmaker ever make it look like a bomb? A countdown doesn't require a visible clock, wires don't have to be color-coded and if you really want it to blow up, you would never provide a password protected method of turning it off. Also, plastic explosives have the property of being plastic. They can be shaped like anything.

Also, elderly man with history of chasing drug dealers off his property is shot and killed by police posing as drug dealers when he tries to chase them off his property.
PERSONAL NOTE: I find it interesting that none of the actual drug dealers ever shot him.
