On the Random episode, Sandi told the tale of the terrorist who had a bomb package returned for inadequate postage and opened it. That's stupid, but it also implies he'd put *a return label* on the bomb.

Well, you wouldn't want it falling into the wrong hands...

I saw that too, and would love to see the provenance (a few of the Darwin Award cases actually stand scrutiny, but not many). But many shippers require a return address as a condition of accepting the consignment, so the actual surprises are

(1) that the sender gave an accurate return address, and

(2) that he opened the package when it came back

(1) might be understandable if the sender had the parcel collected rather than dropping it off, but (2) rather beggars belief.

Reminds of a story in Israel that did the rounds in 1999 when a couple of car bombs went off early and only managed to kill the terrorists.

This happened shortly after Israel Daylight Time had just changed, and the consensus is that the Palestinians either forgot about it or refused to follow Israeli time out of principle.

It meant that both bombs went off an hour earlier than intended, as it was on it's way to the target area.
