We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

That's pretty good thinking on your part. I obviously don't know anything about this, but that's more than a small coincidence.
That quite possibly could be the dumbest thing to do from them. China would go in there and rape them. We wouldn't even have to but we would and wouldn't give a care about China in that case. I think it's domestic but we won't know for at least a day or two.
Ball bearings, shot gun pellets, and nails as shrapnel according to witnesses.
Big explosion here is the second one.
The second explosion occurred a few before 2:55 PM EST.
I don't understand why anyone would want to ruin 1 cent Big Mac day also. People fvcking sucks these days, I don't think I could ever lie in a big city today.
No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
Easily hidden devices.. were looking to injure more than kill.. cause panic.. Chicken Shit

Do they not run security around the Marathon route a few days leading up to the race? Or at least rope it off? Or have parts of it (like the finish line) under constant surveillance? How often is the trash taken out? I realize we don't know of that, but there has to be a way to catch the guys (or guy) quicker than we think.
Trash cans are usually not even allowed on the streets during these things for this very reason. You stack your garbage bags up outside instead. Somebody messed up. Maybe the trash cans were put there by the terrorists though, I don't know.
There aren't supposed to be trash cans on the sidewalks I don't think anymore.
I'm far from a bomb expert but putting it in a trash can would be easy if it's small enough to put in something like a fast food bag or plastic bag and just act like they're throwing it away. Idk if bombs would fit in something that size so just a guess.
I just heard red sox home opener on the radio at work I assumed night game since they were talking about the crowd. I assumed wrong.
They're not. Gfs father works for the FBI and says in large public crowds they get rid of trash cans and mailboxes so they can't hid this stuff. Someone eff'd up.
Good point, but if it's true that trashcans aren't supposed to be anywhere near the route, that means either (a) someone royally screwed up, giving the attacker(s) the opportunity to do what you said or (b) the attacker(s) put the trash cans there.
May god be with those injured and that were lost.
Crush the bastards responsible. ..
On days like this...football can always wait.
God bless everyone
Just saw a picture of a victim being wheeled in a wheel chair by responders. He has no lower legs left and 12" of his left fibula/tibia is exposed.
Good God, I pray for all these victims.
Were the bombs in Atlanta detonated out of trash cans?
Backpack, if I remember right.
I know when I ran the Houston marathon there were cardboard trash cans along the route, especially at the water spots.
They haven't confirmed where the explosions originated. The media is so incompetent they'll rush to conclusions just so they can be the first ones to report. So far I've heard trashcans, under a bleacher, and from inside a building.
Not sure if this has been posted yet, but check out the guy on the roof top.

Not sure why everyone is disscussing trashcans. We are talking about a Marathon through the city of Boston, there are MILLIONS of places to hide a large pipebomb.
Ive got a cousin that lives in Boston. We've not heard from her yet. Evil people amongst us.
People always ask me why I carry my CAT (combat action tourniquet) on me at all times.
Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.
All flights have been grounded in Boston..
Looks photoshopped to me
Patriots Day. My sister is relaying reports from ground zero. She pretty freaked the fvck out
None of the people responsible for this will get out alive.
