people to come up with the most ridiculous yet plausible movie-plot

"From his site: 'It is in this spirit I
announce the (possibly First) Movie-Plot Threat Contest. Entrants are
invited to submit the most unlikely, yet still plausible, terrorist
attack scenarios they can come up with. Your goal: cause terror. Make the

goal, the better. Assume an attacker profile on the order of
9/11: 20 to 30 unskilled people, and about $500,000 with which to buyskills, equipment, etc.'"
