If they were larger, they wouldn't fit in the uterus comfortably, now would they?

Man, I hope they didn't have a human take that picture.  Too close for comfort!  Hopefully they used a robot.

I just had a physical this morning, so I read that as "Small IUDs found at Heathrow..."

Which would be better, I guess. But a bit gross.

So they've found 3 so far. Chances are, if it were an actual series explosive, they were timed or have remote dets.

In which case, there are probably more or a guy still in the airport with a bag full of them.

I'm curious of their type. Bio, diversion, or direct AP?

How small? Like two ounces of Emulex® on a 10-second timer?

Biological weapon.

Real IED, or the usual terrorist "I don't understand the difference between conflagration and detonation" IED?

I used to have a necklace like that but it was just a phase and I wasn't really spending much time at the beach anyways.

The article says "set alight", not sure if that's a Britishism or it's an accurate description of a conflagration device.
