    Boston Marathon bombing: "Man on the roof" prompts Twitter to speculate.

    Well, in the absence of a grassy knoll, we have the rooftop. Time for some wild speculation!

    There is truth in that. However not all governments can provide high levels of security despite best intentions.

    Internet Falls For ‘Family Guy Predicted Boston Bombings’ Hoax, Usual Suspects Latch On | Mediaite

    More wing-nuttery.

    Murdoch news has a really offensive take on the whole thing:

    http://www.news.com.au/technology/co...-1226622349782

    Peep this ridiculous quote:

    FAMILY Guy has become involved in a conspiracy theory hoax that "stands alone in its bat****tiness", Gawker reports.

    adult-rated comedy
    FG a comedy? Don't make me laugh.

    Very few government which have 'best intentions' end up in countries where security is that much of an issue. In fact, I can't think of any of the top of my head. Mostly those governments are pretty corrupt.

    sad but quite true
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    I don't understand it. It's not like months have passed and they've shut the case down. I can understand people getting frustrated if law enforcement can't get the job done and it's been months (and even then I don't necessarily think this is optimal). But it's been a few days. Let them do their job. Stuff like this can end up hurting the actual investigation (not to mention potential innocent people can have their life/reputation ruined)...

    Not to mention the lives of tamils in srilanka. In 2009 alone, more than 40 000 ( couldbe more) tamils were killed but anyways forget it.
