Burning Dave and Mad Bomber
To the Burning Dave question, I would add the following condition: The fire is too thick for Dave to wait until it is halfway, then sprint through to the deforested side.
The mad bomber: all the cartoons I've seen with mad bombers indicate that, the reason the bomber wants the bomb to go off in 45 seconds is he wants 45 seconds to get away. He can't do this if he's waiting for the first fuse to burn out before lighting the second fuse. Otherwise he might get bombed himself or caught redhanded.
