TheManofPA: Is there a greenlit one yet, I'm bouncing between the threads


Either this one, or the one I started.  either way, one of them needs to go.

Also, still no word from main media sites.  Are they waiting for CNN to go first??

King Something: naughtyrev: NewportBarGuy: mrshowrules: somedude210: mrshowrules: someone on Fark was guessing MIT students as the bombing suspects in the FBI suspect thread earlier this evening.

well you'd need some decent engineering knowhow to pull that off (news report earlier said that the circuit board was rewired from an RC car circuit board)

I think that was what the speculation was related to.

I've built better bombs with CO2 cartridges, black powder, and cannon fuse.

MIT? Come on. If they got in there, they are way more sophisticated than this.

MIT might mean smart, but it doesn't have to mean tech savvy.

Really.

Students of the Massachusetts Institute of TECHNOLOGY are not necessarily tech-savvy.


Yes. They have distinguished anthropology and linguistics programs, women's studies, history, philosophy, etc. that don't require advanced tech knowledge.

King Something: mrshowrules: Why is the FBI there?

Shooting at a college barely a swallow's flight away from a bombing that killed 3 and injured over 150, and just three days after said bombing. Why WOULDN'T the FBI be there?

NewportBarGuy: King Something: Students of the Massachusetts Institute of TECHNOLOGY are not necessarily tech-savvy.

To be fair, they do court the other sciences. I'm just very doubtful they are students. And, crime does happen. Could they have caught them trying to hit the campus, maybe. I'll just go with crazy guy doing crazy things. Like every other day ending in y.

Point taken, but if the crazy guy doing crazy things is an MIT student, chances are he is a bit more tech-savvy than your average AOL user.


A unladen European swallow?
