  1. >He told the doctors that he realized there would be dozens of other people on the plane.

    >”But the number of people to be killed made no difference to me,” he told the doctors. “It could have been a thousand. When their time comes, there is nothing they can do about it.”

    What a psycho piece of shit!

  2. This statement quite shocked me

    “There was no federal statute on the books at the time (1955) that made it a crime to blow up an airplane.” (en.wikipedia.org)

    Edit. He was accused of killing his mother. My question his: what if there were no relatives of his onboard?

  3. 1 stick of dynamite could destroy a small car, and most likely blow a hole in the side of the plane no problem.
    Hell… maybe 2 or 3 sticks would split that plane right in half. 44 sticks? God damn. That’s REAL hate right there. That, or the dynamite salesman was one convincing motherfucker.
