Oppppps that's where I dropped them.

Were there bombs in them? If not, no need to panic.

Contents of the backpacks?

I ride a bike. I carry a backpack everywhere. I drink heavily. Sometimes I leave my backpack around and police look through it.

Sometimes this gets me arrested.

It's not something I'm proud of, but I understand.
 
2014-04-15 07:34:18 PM  
There's some poor guy out there that lost his backpack and was trying to find it. And then cops swarmed on it and he knew he'd never see his stuff again.

Or maybe I'm being too optimistic

Well it has been a year. Time to renew their victim card. God forbid the media stops talking about it.

Only two?

Oh right, one of them backed out at the last minute.

FTFBAA: 118th Boston Marathon on April 21, 2014

Terrorists are getting sloppy...

I'm guessing idiots who thought they were being funny, and/or that the backpacks couldn't be traced back to them. Although I suppose it's more likely that a couple misplaced their bags in the worst possible place.
 
2014-04-15 07:43:30 PM  
Oh yeah, but the marathon isn't until next Monday. :-/

Or some H&R Block guy just lost 200 of his customers' tax returns. Could be that.

Gotta keep that fear alive so we can lol at all the suspended freedoms people get, and the paychecks for those who implement said suspensions.

I'll go with your number 1 scenario.

Punch him in the dick three times and release him.

I bet I know who did it, too!

It's that tall guy in blue with the beard. I bet he planted those new backpacks!!1!

/i'm joking. I'm not saying anyone planted anything. the tall guy in blue with the beard is not a terrorist.

Just so Everyone doesn't panic: The green line NEVER stops in copley during the Marathon.

Just like the Subway stations near Times square are NEVER open on new Years' eve.

The thing is, for those of us who carry backpacks everywhere, it's easy to forget them. Especially when drunk. It's not a joke or a conspiracy.

Someone wearing a veil seems a little too obvious

Backpacks are the new, huger purse. Some people can't stand to leave a single thing behind in their car or apartment. You just never know when you're going to need that blanket, sack of skittles, 2 for 1 baked beans coupon, tire pump, and ironing board.

This guy probably dropped them.

Sure. But two backpacks left in that exact location?

This isn't accidental. This is first class d-baggery, and I hope the idiots who left them there get brought up on federal charges.

I use a backpack for work, it's a hell of a lot more convenient than a laptop bag, plus I can fit a couple days clothes in there and no extra luggage.

NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition! Our chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear...fear and surprise.... Our two weapons are fear and surprise...and ruthless efficiency.... Our *three* weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope.... Our *four*...no... *Amongst* our weapons.... Amongst our weaponry...are such elements as fear, surprise.... I'll come in again

Um, if you carry a backpack and own a car, you're doing it wrong.

The dumbass got himself filmed doing it, yelling "Boston Strong" all the way. Link

Look, I like a good troll but ya gotta know when it's going to backfire terribly and you should really just make a couple of tasteless jokes with your buddies.

If douchebaggery was a Federal Crime, the members of the Westboro Baptist Church would be on death row now.

I'm not sure how anyone could think that doing such a thing would result in anything less than getting a federal prison sentence.

It's not a prank, and it's not funny.

There's a lot of even newer security cameras there, plus all the ones they used to catch the real bombers.  Hopefully the DB's face will be on the news by tomorrow morning.

Wouldn't the charges cause the Thunder Muscle to explode? Or does that only happen when you try to call the one girl with the pure heart who can help you?

I can't keep up.

Am I supposed to look for suspicious backpacks, shoes, underwear, airplanes, pressure cooker or unattended luggage?
