#1 I have been watching activities in Sri Lanka for many years since I had some neighbors who were from there and I knew it was the home of Arthur C. Clarke, one of my favorite sci-fi writers. It was the first place I noticed suicide bombers as a trend about 20+ years ago. Interestingly the tamils are mainly hindu so I wonder where their penchant for self booming comes from?

#2  I wonder where their penchant for self booming comes from?

An excess of female children to dispose of? (From the article, "The suspected bomber disguised herself as a pregnant woman")

#3 Nope, the early ones were all male.
I remember seeing pictures of one of their heads after the boom.
