Good job guys.

Another idea is to suggest ingredients that will blow up in their faces as they are preparing the explosives.

That would have been the one I'd have gone with. It'd be much less obvious a hack than substituting cupcake recipes.

Am I the only person who would have gotten more excited to see a recipe instead of bomb-making instructions? I can see this playing out:

"Whoa, this is a double chocolate fudge cupcake recipe! Screw making a bomb and killing myself, I want to make some of these delicious cakes!"

In hindsight, it doesn't seem like the smartest thing to do. Wouldn't it have been better to change the bomb instructions just enough to blow themselves up? And now they know to better protect the website and for what? 3 days of a muffin recipe?

And blow up their neighbors with them?

While in theory that might sound plausible, let's think about the actual implications for a minute. More unnecessary deaths, damage and carnage caused is what would result.

Cupcakes though, I like that. Perhaps it might encourage a bit of Al Qaeda home baking.

As opposed to the unnecessary deaths, damage and carnage caused by a bomb maker who lives to make more bombs.

If he ate lots of them, high cholestrol and heart disease will kill him eventually anyway.
