Pretty scary stuff. It's too soon to know exactly what has happened but reports are of two explosions with 2 people dead and around 30 injured some very seriously.

There are also reports of more devices being found.

This Vine shows one of the explosions

It's you and I, Bob.
We're the only two people left here who care anymore.
You because you're stuck in the glory days and me because nobody else will have me.

When word went out of a terrorist attack in Boston, everyone else ran someplace else to learn more, to talk about it. To their 'home site' for news or talk. Oh, eventually, the remaining few check-in-once-a-day'ers will poke in to give their thoughts but when news broke, there were a grand total of two people who thought of Full Contact Poker first.

That's us, Bob. You and me.
Here we are.

And Whiskers.

Although there's this phantom member who I believe randomly changes their screen name every year or so.
I think that's Whiskers.

I don't keep up with the subcultural shit on this site.

Im wondering if this wasnt a low level attack. It didnt occurr on wat woulda been optimal time for live coverage. The race was almost over, and the casualties seem to be relatively light.Altho not light for the victims. They will prolly look into radical christians or tea party folks first. Cant be insensitive to muslim sensabilities.

@darrenrovell
The avg Boston finish time (when the most people are crossing) was 4:18 last year. Explosion went off at 4:09:40. Most people in area.

FCP was the first place I went to when I heard Kobe got hurt. But for breaking news, Twitter just has so much more utility.

I usually think of the sick thread first, and go there first. Then I go to twitter, cnn, 4bb, and then usually back to the sick thread, which might be finished loading.
there were no special effects, no special effects.

The Boston Globe reported about an hour ago that police and FBI were surrounding an apartment building in Revere (a beach town north of Boston), but they've since taken that off their site and I can't find anything about it anywhere else. That's all I've got.

I was mostly thinking that having the largest live tv audience would be a goal.

My go to guy on all things ethical and his take on the bombing.

Boston Bombings: Do Not Exploit

The second principle I would like people to keep in mind in the wake of the attacks in Boston is, "Do not exploit the attacks to promote a personal or tribal agenda."
As Eric Idle wrote: You know, you come from nothing - you're going back to nothing. What have you lost? Nothing!

Ya it's cute that 4chan and reddit are pretending to be FBI, but the chances of them discerning something that eluded the real FBI is pretty close to zero.
