THINGS WE HADN'T STARTED WORRYING ABOUT YET

From a Foreign Policy article on the world's most bizarre terror threats

PARAGLIDERS: The ploy: Navigate into the center of a city by paraglider and attack crowds from above. . .

INSECT SWARMS: The ploy: Launch a bioterrorist attack using swarms of insects infected with a deadly disease

SMOKE DETECTORS: The ploy: Fashion a dirty bomb using a radioactive chemical commonly found in smoke detectors, infecting all those in the blast's vicinity with radiation sickness

WORLD OF WARCRAFT: The ploy: Use online games and communities like World of Warcraft to plan terrorist attacks. . . Potential terrorists would use in-game jargon as analogies for specific tasks while game maps could be used to describe real locations. The cyberjihadis would practice their plot by creating scenarios with other players. In this way, terrorists would be very difficult to distinguish from normal gamers.

BOTOX: The ploy: Infect the food supply with raw botulinum
