    Explosions At Boston Marathon

    Anyone has any info on this? Attack or some random explosion in the wrong place at the wrong time?

    So far not a whole lot; both my company and the mods are all discussing it. So far 12 injuries, no deaths, no explanation.

    Quite a few of my co-workers have friends running in that today

    No deaths? That's frankly surprising given the amount of blood.
    It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire shakes, the shakes become a warning.

    Well, no one knows yet. It just happened 30 minutes ago or so.

    Now I feel bad about bitching about how the marathon always screws up my commute

    Yea it's mayhem. I'd be amazed if no one died. Lots of limbs lost apparently... which isn't surprising. Dars about people running the marathon, all of them should be fine. It was targeted on the people spectating.

    Lets not use words like "targeted" yet. It's still possible (though probably unlikely) that this was an accident.

    Here is a short clip with some footage as well.

    This is really screwed up, I have friends who work the finish line every year. I am seriously hoping this was some sort of terrible accident...

    God that sucks. And you have to figure that those losing limbs are probably those most likely to miss the use of those limbs, given that they're there for a marathon.

    I don't know. One person said they smelled sulfur, which could mean natural gas

    By targeted I meant that they happened where the spectators were. Meaning it was a bit off from where the people were running and it apparently wasn't in the nearby buildings.
