Well, you gotta figure that suicide bombers ain't 'zackly rocket scientists, to begin with.

She didn't do it to herself, the cell phone company did it to her by sending her a spam message "early"


Unless the Darwin award is to go to the cell phone company, or "the Russian security forces" mentioned in the article,  for some reason.
