Meanwhile, new comer Moju threw up a thread that got some discussion going , and although this as usual quickly degenerated in to trolling, a few commentors left some good links.
Although I've summed up a little of my past experiences with bombs in this post  on my personal site,
The actual scene of an explosion is nothing like the glamorous setups you see in movies or on TV. There’s a lot more gore than cinema, and none of the music to keep you psyched. The smell of flesh and fear, entwined, inseparable. A stench that climbs up your nostrils and stays there, lodged between your nose and your mind.
most other Sri Lankan weblogs have been suprisingly quiet on the issue.
