The last autosave occurred sometime after the explosion in West, Texas.

had98c: GAT_00: Seriously, fark this week.

No kidding. It's been a long time since I can remember seeing so many news flash tags. And even then, the news flashes are ACTUALLY worthy of the tag too.


It was a lot worse in TF before that ran out today.  But again, mostly legitimate.

nyrkah1: So are carjack and MIT shooting related? My impression is no.

/I are confused


Nothing definitely linking them that I've seen, but various swarthy dudes have been allegedly responsible for bombing a race, shooting a police officer, and now hijacking a car all in a short span of time, it stands to reason it could all be the same person, the time line works at least.

impaler: naughtyrev: He just looks a little small compared to other people

If you were an art major, you would have learned how perspective works. (The bald guy in the suit is standing on a step to see stuff).

Yet people still want to push STEM degrees.


Sorry for this post. I was flipping through the thread and didn't know anyone died when I posted. It was inappropriate.
 
2013-04-19 12:50:20 AM
Well, this has been a hell of a week.

It's weeks like this that make me wish I'd never stopped being a drug addict.

I'm glad you're around to know that he's from the East Coast or later because I'm central time and it's still Thursday.

Watertown residents report hearing explosions.

Holy shiat.
 
2013-04-19 12:51:27 AM
What makes anybody think "this week" is going to end any time soon?
 
2013-04-19 12:51:33 AM
I feel like I'm not even living in reality anymore.  This whole week has been totally farked up.

One person on the radio just said they had possibly stolen a state police truck.
 
2013-04-19 12:52:11 AM
TuteTibiImperes:
It seems like a big issue is no one knows if the marathon bombers, MIT shooter, and now hijackers are in any way related or if Boaton is just in the middle of a bizarre crime spree right now.

Regression to the mean?
 
2013-04-19 12:52:13 AM
Okay, not going to bed for a while now.
