Darwin Awards

I in no way want to make light of the potential threat of airborne terrorism and I am thankful that both the underwear & shoe bomber were unsuccessful but I can't help wondering why both Richard Reid and Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab didn't detonate their devices in the airplane bathrooms.

The obvious joke would be that they both wanted to avoid the fine for tampering with the smoke detectors.

The stupidity of Reid and Abdulmutallab along with the heroism of their fellow passengers is the only thing that prevented tragedy.
