Re: was it the red wire or the blue one to disarm the bomb?

Yes, it's probably not surprising to most people here when we see on TV shows the protagonist desperately trying to identify which wire to cut, or some "expert" at the other end of the radio when we can all clearly see a det stick poked into some form of plastic explosive and the obvious solution is to simply pull the det stick out of the plastic before the timer triggers.

Then again, if the hackers are as useless as the hollywood script writers or as stupid as the hollowood writers think the audience is, maybe this is a good plan?
