Hello Kitty Terrorist Equipment

This is Weird Universe and this story, in it's entirety, couldn't be more dead on if it were especially designed for us!

I've left my comments in the extended section because I'd like you to view the clip before continuing. At the least, start at the 1min mark.

I Feel More Secure Already

I stumbled across this essay quite by accident. I was laughing at the image to the right (seriously? snow globes? they must have watched that short by Pixar where the itty bitty plastic snowman tries to blow up his globe to reach the hot mermaid in the snow globe next to his and they thought it was reality TV). Under that image was a link to the following essay, Terrorism, Tweezers, and Terminal Madness: An Essay On Security. It's not a short read, but it is definitely worth reading if you want a pilot's perspective on what airline security has become since September 11, 2001. Perhaps even more interesting is the list of air crimes at the end of the essay, sorted by date, starting in 1970.

Trapped by Boobies

Hemet, California, has traditionally been known as a quiet retirement community. Until now. For whatever reason, someone (or more likely, several someones) has decided that the police are the bad guys and that they should be dealt with. And while we might not approve of what these anonymous folks are doing, you have to admit that they are going to extraordinary measures: a gas line re-routed directly into the police station, a ballistic contraption designed to go off when the gate is opened, and explosive devices attached to police vehicles. Investigators have no idea who might be behind the recent attacks except to point out that the gang enforcement division has been targeted more than any other. Read more about it on Yahoo.

French-film-inspired Terrorism?

image image

Given that Najibullah Zazi seems to have been planning terrorist assaults on the NYC subway system, is it possible he got his inspiration from a surname-related French New Wave film Zazie dans le métro?

I entirely blame avant-garde author of the original novel, Raymond Queneau.

You can never trust these artsy types!

UPDATE: this clip from the film looks awfully suspicious to me!
