32. How'd it turn out for Richard Reid?
Oh, yeah... It didn't. :eyes:

There's one thing your precious wiki article fails to mention about explosions...

They tend to follow the path of least resistance. Reid's legs were softer than the
well insulated metal fuselage of an aircraft. If he'd been able to detonate the few
ounces of explosive in his shoes the only result would have been to launch his stupid
head into the opposite wall of the fuselage. Killing him and possibly injuring those
around him. It most likely wouldn't have brought the plane down.
