Since I care about the loss of life in Boston and the numerous other physically and psychologically injured people, does that mean that I am simply behaving as the TV wants me to behave?

The Missing Link: the money is in the banana stand: 47 is the new 42: Do not view those pictures while trying to eat.  Don't say I didn't warn you.  I hope we get whoever did this, and put him in a Supermaxium Prison for the rest of his/her/their life/lives.

Personally, I think that special exceptions should be made for person(s) taking part in terrorist events and introduce them to hell on earth. Torture them for as long as humanly possible and keep them alive. Once they expire, defile their corpses. Strike their names from any sort of history book and continue on life as normal as possible.

There's been a massive run on reloading supplies lately; people have been buying everything on the shelves because the stuff is on the shelf and they're now hoarders. I don't think that buying every container of powder at WalMart would raise an eyebrow any more.


Pretty much.  Just this past Saturday I stopped at the local big box sporting goods store for a can of BP and a box of 45-70 bullets.  The cashier asked "Just the one?"  From her tone (and the complete lack of any smokeless powder at ALL on the shelves) I figured mass purchases are common these days.

That was my first reaction.  Probably due to my experience.  When we were stationed at Rhein Main as a kid, dad was Svc Squadron commander.  The base hotel was right next to the front gate.  Any time there was any commotion (protests etc.) we'd head up to the roof to watch.

That was most likely just a spectator. If I a rooftop patio area next to the finish line of a major marathon, I'd probably hang out up there to watch the race, too. I seriously doubt the "bomber" cornered himself on the roof of a building right next to the explosions to set it off. You can't even see the bomb locations from up there. Kinda dumb.

Flab: orclover: I dont understand why all the smoke is going up instead of half of it going out.

Hot air rises.  Plus the explosion was in a relatively closed space, so there wasn't much room for the smoke to go sideways before being pushed back in by the shockwave rebounding on the walls across the street.


It might simply have been in a garbage can.

FloridaFarkTag: If it is Islamic Terrorism....lets not resort to dhimmitude and refuse to call Islamic Terrorism "Islamic Terrorism".

And its not just a left/right thing.  There are plenty on the right who refuse to call Islamic Terrorism as such...like Grover Norquist and many of the Fox News talking heads

The cheering of Palestinians in Palestine...the ball bearings used as shrapnel....these are signs that it was some sort of Islamic Terrorism


Let me use your incredibly stupid and uninformed logic to offer an equally valid theory.... Maybe it was Argentina planting bombs to condemn Ronald Reagan's support of Margaret Thatcher during the Malivinas War..... The Argentinians set off bombs in the US Tuesday because of Thatcher's funeral.

/Ok.... So Thatcher's funeral is today.... a day after the bombing.... No worries. Facts don't concern trolls anyway.

I have my own theory. This is the work of an evil, large and ... big shadow organization known as the Large Persons Liberation Front. Think about it. They bombed a marathon. Soon they will bomb healthy foods and swimming pools. Everyone will be too afraid to exercise and so their numbers will, if you pardon the pun, swell.

Seriously though, this is horrible. I do hope they catch the person/people who did it.

I shall now cherry-pick my evidence to support this conclusion, and ignore the naysayers and their "facts."


I wonder how many people attempting to blame the "right wing" were trying to debunk the connection between a certain attack in Libya that happened on the same day that some people flew planes into office buildings years earlier....

That's funny, I was just going to ask why the same people who were losing their shiat over that event and demanding to know WHY Emperor Fartbongo hadn't called out the military to solve the case in minus 4,000 seconds all while instantly divulging all information regarding the perpetrators aren't banging the drum for the same thing right now.

Maybe because unlike then, they fear it could be one of their own....?



Because the military doesn't do domestic law enforcement.....it is called the posse comitatus act.

not trying to stir up shiat but I think school shootings would rank as high if not higher than even terrorism.

Personally I think it is more sick and twisted to line up the sights on your AR-15 to a 6 yr old's head and press the trigger and watch her brains splash against the wall then repeat a few more times then just planting a bomb and walking away.

Mose: "Crowley, run down to the patent office, copyright 'the Boston Massacre. '  I want a quarter everytime someone says it."


As a twenty-two year employee of the US Copyright Office, let me say that this single sentence contains three of the most common misperceptions about Copyright.

1) That Patents and Copyrights are somehow the same.  They are not.  Copyright is is an entirely separate legal construction, and we do no work in common.  The US Copyright Office is located in Washington, DC and the PTO is in Virginia on the other side of the Potomac.

2) One cannot copyright a word, phrase or idea.  Since forever.

See   §202.1 Material not subject to copyright:

The following are examples of works not subject to copyright and applications for registration of such works cannot be entertained:

(a) Words and short phrases such as names, titles, and slogans; familiar symbols or designs; mere variations of typographic ornamentation, lettering or coloring; mere listing of ingredients or contents;
(b) Ideas, plans, methods, systems, or devices, as distinguished from the particular manner in which they are expressed or described in a writing;
(c) Blank forms, such as time cards, graph paper, account books, diaries, bank checks, scorecards, address books, report forms, order forms and the like, which are designed for recording information and do not in themselves convey information;
(d) Works consisting entirely of information that is common property containing no original authorship, such as, for example: Standard calendars, height and weight charts, tape measures and rulers, schedules of sporting events, and lists or tables taken from public documents or other common sources.
(e) Typeface as typeface.


3) "Quarter every time someone says it": Licensing does not work that way. Seriously.

OrangeSnapper: Is this just a post 9/11 thing?  Mass casualties have been going on long before that: traffic accidents, fires, tornadoes, etc.  First responders have to be prepared for anything, and it looks like they were in Boston.  Needless to say those on standby at the finish line were not posted to deal with a bombing but to deal with runners who push it too hard.  But when the shiat went down, they rose to the occasion, quite admirably.


Nope, definitely not just post 9/11. In high school (back before many of you were even born) I used to volunteer every year to play a "mass casualty" for the local first responders. They'd get a bunch of us, give us some theater blood and guts makeup and a script with our symptoms that we were supposed to relate to the EMTs/Cops/Firefighters/Emergency-type people. We'd be strewn about the fairgrounds and then they'd send in the help. We'd role play all the way to the hospital in the ambulance where a stern nurse would then inform us that "Exercise is over, thanks for your help" very brusquely. Apparently some people played the role a bit too long a few years before.

And podunk? Let me tell you podunk. My town barely cracked 2500 people back then.

There's nothing new under the sun about mass casualty prep drills. This was actually long ago enough that we did "post nuke explosion" scenarios one year.

He could definitely watch the runners approach the finish, though his sightline to the finish is obstructed.  I am curious what he is doing in the video that picture was pulled from.  My first guess is just a spectator.

You're not an American, are you?

Seriously, what makes a "terrorist" more deserving of torture than a "serial killer" or a mass shooter?

Just because he's called a scary thing doesn't mean we throw away the Constitution.


What about scary inanimate objects? Can we throw away the constitution for those?

You are not consistant are you.....
