Movie-Plot Threat Contest

Bruce Schneier has announced a contest for his readers to come up with extravagant, terrible, terrifying, possible, but bloody unlikely terrorist attack scenarios – what he calls "movie-plot" scenarios. It won't make any difference because he is mostly preaching to the choir but there always a chance that someone in a position of influence will the entries and decide to spend DHS money on preventing real threats rather than wasting money on high-profile programs that are designed merely to make the public at large feel more secure. Of course what is most likely to happen is that a cool entry will be passed around, end up on some desk and then millions of dollars later somebody will get a pat on the back and be told that they are doing a "heck of a job".
