Your inquiry was somewhat original but other than that, no.

Elegy: Flab: vygramul: Has Fark set a record for subject-coverage yet with this?

No.  I think 9/11 still has the trophy.

/Or Lilo's drunken antics, if you're more into marathon coverage than 100m dash.

Nerdy girls is sti the all time winner for posts in thread, I believe, but it's not a fair fight, what with the mods shutting down threads and opening new ones.

I wonder what the accumulated total for this event has been since the whole chase started this morning?

/too lazy to check


Also, the Iran threads had to have a fairly epic number of posts when combined.

Or the poor innocent slob who happens to be standing next to him when the cops finally find him.

If this guy knows how to close a door behind him then these cops are all going to be royally farked....

"Um... there are no more open doors... what do we do?"

NittLion78: Headso: supposedly this is the dead brother:


http://ist2-1.filesor.com/pimpandhost.com/1/_/_/_/1/1/r/W/2/1rW2k/0U 0o zqt.jpg


obviously a very graphic picture so don't click unless you dare.

I assume that, if it's not fake, the only way that could have gotten out is if someone privy to the body went rogue and posted it somewhere, right? I find it hard to believe that came out via an official channel.


yeah if it's even really him, it could be some dead syrian and fark if i'd know the difference.

It came out on Reddit posted by "somebody who works downtown" and TMZ confirmed it is real.  So take that as you will.

mrshowrules: vygramul: Has Fark set a record for subject-coverage yet with this?

That would depend on your definition of a "subject".  9/11?  Gun control?  Abortion? 2012 election?

It might hit the record in overlapping threads.


I wonder what the record for threads about a story is. We're on what thread 4-5 of the manhunt alone today?
 
2013-04-19 02:28:12 PM  

OregonVet: I would like the hair splitters for their insight as to the "this isn't marshal law!" reasoning.


How is that hair-splitting? Martial law is something quite explicit. Heck, I don't see many farkers calling mandatory evacuations before a hurricane martial law, but this, which is less intrusive and has fewer penalties for disobeying is?

Why do you keep on posting that?

styckx: Grobbley: [i.imgur.com image 850x198]

Stop posting this none sense.

People have a right to know.  Why do you hate the free spread of information so much?  Take it or leave it, but why bash it?  Why are you so threatened by it?


Information. Riiiight, cuz that's what you have been posting all night and day.

I bet the cops had a hard time keeping up with that many speed holes.

The tumblr about the MIT cop that was killed, "memories of sean" is really tough to read.

He seemed like an amazing person
 
2013-04-19 02:28:26 PM  
It's alarming how many people in Boston leave their doors wide open.

No? Ok.


Regular or extra-crispy?

/I'm thinking extra-crispy, of course.
 
2013-04-19 02:28:42 PM  
I just need one more of these anchors to ask one of the people on the scene "Have you ever seen anything like this before?"

Read every 100 posts, you'll get the gist.

BafflerMeal: brapbrapbrap: Going over old ground here I'm sure but...12 hours ago the police had tracked down both suspects, killed one and yet the 19 year old got away and has evaded capture since...erm, how? How did he get away from the incident where his brother was killed in the first place?

12 hours on and the dude is officially taking the piss now. Can they not send the army in to sort it out? Navy SEALS? You can borrow some of our SAS guys if you want, they'd have the coont wrapped up for you within the hour. It's getting stupid now, they should have got him 12 hours ago.


How exactly would they find him faster?  Superpowers?


They wouldn't have let him just drive away from the incident where his brother was shot. I still don't understand how he got away from that, anyone?

Also it seems to have taken about 7 hours to search a couple of houses, special forces would have that done in 20 minutes.
 
2013-04-19 02:28:57 PM  

Uakronkid: All in facor os favor of dubbing the suspect "the Joker"? The news stations' pronunciations of his name are already trending that way.


/sausage fingers and/or lack of sleep

muck4doo: You know what she really wanted to say.


I'm really surprised she didn't just come out and say 'The American Government staged this to blame it on Muslims'. I mean she put all the pieces there, why just wink and not go through it?

scanner stream just died.

Does this mean it's going down right now?

I guess we'll know in a little while
 
2013-04-19 02:29:15 PM  
What they should do is publicly announce that the suspect has escaped and that there's nothing more to be done, and call off the search. Then the mayor should go on TV and announce that there will be a Mega Wrestling Contest tonight downtown, and that first prize is an all-expenses-paid trip to Chechnya. Then when this guy shows up to wrestle in it (the contest is actually just a fake) they can have Rick Moranis jump out in front of him in the Dark Helmet costume and say "Fooled you!" Then they can cuff him and stuff him, and take any money that he has in his wallet and put it towards a "Dynasty" reunion show hosted by Joan Collins.

TeddyRooseveltsMustache: Suspicious door open (somewhere). Units headed there now.


There's been open doors, upstairs noises, cellar doors, ladders propped up against buildings... amazing amounts of "suspicious" since 2am, and it's all rather boring waiting for WhiteHatGuy to appear
 
2013-04-19 02:29:28 PM  
Dammit. I was hoping that between this morning and now that they would get the guy into custody.

So, any more craziness since the older guy with the bomb vest and deadman trigger from this morning around 10 or so?
 
2013-04-19 02:29:31 PM  

ourbigdumbmouth: In before the white person deniers show up.


Heh. A graph of peoples political alignment compared with whether or not they consider chechens white could be fascinating.

I would expect sort of a bell curve.

2013-04-19 02:29:57 PM  
Did they just announce the suspects phone number on the air before the scanner cut out?
 
2013-04-19 02:30:01 PM  
Scanner is still up, just refresh the page.
