1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Tali-Bombed", Way to Die #123, is the fourth death to be featured in "Death on Arrival", which aired on December 6, 2009.


Two Taliban terrorists, Abdul and Habeeb, were preparing to load a suitcase full of explosives, so they could blow up a police station. While loading the suitcase, they were talking about famous people, like Miley Cyrus and Jerry Seinfeld. They set the bomb to go off at 1:45 PM (which was one hour away from the current time, 12:45 PM) Unfortunately, Daylight Savings Time took effect, so it was already 1:45. All that Abdul and Habeeb can do is to scream in horror one last time, and after a few seconds, the bomb exploded. Because Abdul was holding the bomb, the blast had a great effect on his hands, fracturing his fingers and disintegrating his arm before blowing up the rest of him and Habeeb, turning the terrorists to dust, leaving a boot that falls onto the ground, sending the two Taliban terrorists to hell.



"In death, Abdul and Habeeb had learned one valuable lesson about life: it's all about timing."
