    "Whooooops!" @ 1:29

    Kudos to the security forces and whoever alarmed them!
    Hope the guy who prepared the bomb makes the same mistake(s) if he gives it another try. Better yet, hope he gets caught.

    I'd wish next time they're making a bomb try it out at home first before placing it

    The terrorist probly gave the bomb number to his wife which explains the number of missed calls.

    I'm assuming it's plastic explosives and that's why they're not being careful with it?

    looks like either some variation of plastic explosive, or possible HME. Either way yea you can pretty much drop that crap off a 3 story building and you'll be just fine.

    Maybe I don't understand something, but how all this explosion-proof gear matches with rubber gloves?

    I'd go with better dexterity and not contaminating the evidence.

    Try soldering a wire with thick gloves on now multiply that by 1000 for bomb disposal.

    The "gear" is hot and thus he may get an itchy crack. You need dexterity to scratch your ****hole.

    Let's be very honest: with a big bomb the bomb-suit is only there to keep your sack of meat together in case you die. In case of a smaller bomb the suit will keep you alive, but that's about it. Your hands will likely be blown away, because they are never protected. The bomb technisian needs the dexterity in his hands to defuse the explosives. Some bomb suits may feature flaps that cover the top of your hands. So in case you notice things are going sour, you may be able to turn your hands away and protect them. Bottom-line: don't make a mistake
