MetaFilter: Killing you for me. ⇒

   13 July 2005, late morning

A thread on suicide bombers.

This is a post from my link log: If you click the title of this post you will be taken the web page I am discussing.



  1. “We had this hand grenade at our window, sitting there for a whole winter, and when I heard the Russians were coming, I taped it to my body under my left breast, because I knew if they started taking away women it would be the end of me, and I didn’t want to end by being raped and dying in this way,” she says. “For four days, I slept, I worked. The grenade was a part of my body, a part of my body—and if they touched me, I swear to God, I’d have pulled the ring.”

  2. Hey Ram, did you censor my previously light hearted comment on grendades?

    [ed. yes]

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
