    Story is developing, apparently this just happened. No hard data yet.

    Yikes. Saw someone's Twitter feed that said there was blood everywhere.

    Fox News has video. I'm seeing casualties coming out in wheelchairs, many with obvious wounds or blood on them.

    Damn....

    I hope no one dies.

    Shit like this is going to fuck up the huge marathons because now security which was already big is going to get paranoid.

    This is one of those times when I'm perfectly happy to allow my barbaric side come to the forefront and wish that whoever did this is caught and terminated in the most slow and excruciatingly painful manner.


    So fuck you, Ricky! I want them to suffer!

    So, you're no better than those who did this?

    Starting to look like it might have been a gas explosion, not deliberate. But bomb squad calls are going out now, so who knows?

    Drudge has a link that says people have lost limbs but I can't get it up (it's a Boston CBS site).

    You can see one guy had both of his legs blown off.

    Spoilered due to graphic image.

    I know the info isn't available yet but I can only think of two possible candidates. Either it was Islamic terrorists or it was domestic right wing terrorism again. That the terrorist attacks happened on April 15th, the date where taxes are due, I'm leaning towards right wing domestic terrorists but we'll have to wait for more info to really know.

    The target was Boston and we all know how right wing nutjobs hate Massachusetts. Again, nothing conclusive yet but the signs are hinting at right wing anti-government extremists right now. We'll have to wait to know for sure though.

    Fox News is reporting at least ten cases of limbs blown off. Third device possibly found. Police trying to evacuate medical tent because of fear of device.

    Not going to jump to any conclusions about any of this.

    But the idiots have already taken to Twitter and declared it a false flag.

    I have a good friend who runs most of the big marathons from Minneapolis. When I saw this I was very, very worried.

    Thankfully she is ok!

    The only thing conclusive at this point is that you're an asshat.

    No signs, only coincidences.
