apparently you don't understand the probabilities of the roulette table...

you realize the previous spin doesn't indicate the outcome of the next spin? They're independent probabilities.

Your reasoning is: "there's never ever been 2 terrorists each with a bomb on a plane, so to prevent myself from running into a terrorist with a bomb on the plane, I will bring a bomb on the plane". 2 independent events.
