    Nice to have your picture spread across the world of you in agony after blowing off your foot in the park. Yay technology.:rolleyes:

    Well, no, he plainly is not, unless I'm seeing that major trauma from a positive POV.

    That there is a life-changing occurrence by any standards.

    Sympathy needed, right?

    I like how the police chief said it may have been the work of an "explosives hobbyist". So that's the PC term for terrorist these days?
    This is so messed up. My heart goes out to that kid, and his friends who had to witness what happened.

    Leftist Rhetoric...

    "Common Sense Gun Control"
    "Weapons of War"

    ...and now the latest, most delicious sheep food, "Explosive Hobbyist"

    Let's not forget that beheadings are performed by Haircut Hobbyists

    Somewhere in Washington DC there's someone desperately trying to figure out a way to blame this on gun owners.

    Triggered device! IED is what I'm calling it, and a pretty powerful one to do that kind of damage! ( I know, I treated hundreds of IED amps ) I am betting we haven't seen the last of these! I like how they specifically state it wasn't a "device" or something more sinister! I am thinking they are avoiding calling it what it is so they don't draw attention to the "builder" and can set up a sting!

    I feel bad for this kid, No one should have to have to suffer this sort of thing in America!
    My thoughts and prayers to this young man and his family and friends!

    It will be interesting to hear what they say when something way bigger accidentally pops off.
    Anyone remember the Aum Shinrikyo terrorist group that was responsible for the subway tunnel sarin gas attack in Tokyo.

    These terrorist know the fear an IED can cause and how effective it can be.
    I'm surprised this kind of thing hasn't come here sooner. Will be a scary day when it does.

    I'm sure this was just some dumb kids playing around and left their crap there to see what happens.
    Or maybe a want to be jihadi starting small.

    Is he breathing? Will he be breathing tomorrow? Well, all right!
    And, it is sad! Wasn't being facetious at all!

    Zombie thread I command you to live...

    The pic does not look right. Dudes not got enough blood, and his left leg is hidden by what looks to be a cabbage patch doll. And it looks like Jim Carey wearing an 02 mask.
