wiki's recent changes patrol whit over 5mill unique fews per day.
checking if that what is changed is done right.

and you might wanna check the Fact and Reference Check

i often dont use wiki because people like you will tell me it isn't a good source. (even when they later use a wiki source themselves -.-' ) but i know it is good.

This event makes me so angry. Who the hell bombs a marathon? Literally...who does that?
It makes me curious, academically, as to what kind of mental illness or delusions must exist in a person to where bombing a marathon becomes a good decision in their mind.
From a game-theory perspective, who benefits from this? Who's goals are furthered by this event. I can't see how this would help anyone's cause. Perhaps I'm too naive, but I don't think a "Casino Royale" type of plot is really realistic... (bad guys short sell stock, then do a terrorist attack which causes the stock value to plummet which then makes them a lot of money)... but the stock market did take a dive right away... so maybe it did but I have a hard time believing that someone is that Sh!tty of a person.


Either way, I really hope they find who did this.

@partydevil:
just BTdubs, wikipedia is a far more reliable source than many people acknowledge. Its always important to double-check and verify (especially if you need to be right), but I have gotten a lot of information from wikipedia and every time I double check it, its correct.

A decade or two ago, you likely wouldn't have even heard about Newton or Aurora due to communication limitations.


The Columbine High School massacre was a huge thing when it happened, and it was more then a decade ago.

What kind of person attacks a school? A woman with children? A hospital?

A terrorist. There's no such thing as different levels of insanity allocated to different targets. A terrorist wants to create a maelstrom of terror, and a marathon fits the bill; lots of people from all walks of life, an unexpected setting, and right in the heart of a country.
