Well I'm glad it makes sense to you. It doesn't make sense to me because actual, proven statistics are far more reliable than being scared of the bogeyman under the bed.
Why planes and museums but not tubes? A bit more logic for you to grapple with:
24 million tube journeys are taken every day with literally thousands of entry and exit points to the system including open track. It would be impossible to do and given the actual risks it would not only not be cost effective but also totally f*ck the economy. Well done Jihadists, thanks to Colin's way of thinking you win!
Planes and museums OTOH are contained spaces with easily manned entry and exit points. Far fewer people use any single airport (even Heathrow, the busiest in the world) in one day that use the tube network.
Also, up to the present day, more people have been killed in bombed planes than bombed tube trains. And museums aren't necessarily checking for bombs they are checking for anything that might be used to cause damage - because museum artifacts can get attacked too.
Your comments about female cyclists don't illustrate the overall stats which is that more men than women cyclists are involved in accidents (not necessarily fatal), one of the reasons being that there are simply more male cyclists. Age also seems to be a more significant factor than sex.
Anyway, thank goodness you didn't have to cope with the Blitz.
