I only care to the extent that I'm curious about why people do this, that's all.
Now if it was Suicide Bomber Memorial Day at the park, that would be a different ball game.
Sure would bring new meaning to "sacrifice fly."
"They've got a man on second--OH, he just blowed up and took out the infield!"
At work we had a similar mental excercise a few years back during the World Cup.
I envisioned an Israel/Palestinean game where the Palestineans sent in a suicde bomber to take out the Israeli goalie to win the game.
As to your question of why people do it? Many faiths require/encourage public expressions of Faith. I always thought Christianity is one of those. The idea of Fellowship is strewn throughout everything I ever learned.
Think like those Falon Gong people, they could be all underground in China, but thier religion REQUIRES them to be open and practice thier faith in Public. Even if that means you are persecuted and killed.
