    Today there was a marathon going on in boston....

    Ahh screw it, take it away CNN:

    http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2013/04/15/explosions-near-finish-of-boston-marathon/?hpt=hp_t2

    Security in New York and Washington for other marathons have upped the security. One freaky little thing to note though is:

    So it was a planned attack basically.

    BUT!

    Naw, a delivery guy was just walking down that path and accidentally dropped the armed bombs - they were actually meant to be delivered to the local coal mine, the wind accidentally concealed them with leaves and assorted trash, what a terrible accident-- of course it was planned, no sh*t, Sherlocks. :tpi:

    Ahh, American news agencies... always professional.

    Boston tempers, if we have any, just be safe out there. Stories like this always sucks to read :(

    That still entails planning it, especially judging from their location. One does not simply arm a bomb without planning to do so. :D

    EDIT: I simply find it insulting to the readers and their intelligence - the fact that the attack was planned is painfuly obvious.

    Apparently the JFK library had a fire the same time one of the bombs went off but it is still unknown if it was related.




    Edit: Was unrelated to the bombings, CBS news confirmed it.

    Well then you shouldn't take it so seriously and personal.

    Oh, I don't - I was merely pointing out the Captain Obvious, it cracked me up.

    Hey guys, this is just fresh and it's pretty fucking brutal, now is not the time for jokes. Make them among yourselves in private, not on a site where people may be truly offended (ie you did not just say "Nintendo is poopy").

    This morning on the radio, they said the total number of deaths so far is 3 and there's also some people who are in critical condition.
