An anecdote: Linus Pauling's Argument: follow-up

Hello,

Reading your web page with Pauling's joke just now reminded me of a Laurie Anderson piece:

"You know, you should always carry a bomb on an airplane. The chance of there being one bomb on the plane is pretty small, but the chance of two bombs is miniscule. So by carrying a bomb on the airplane your chances of being held hostage or being blown up are astronomically reduced."

Cheers,

Michael.
