Boston Still Blowing Stuff Up

Filed under: Weird — Tom @ 11:01 pm

Boing Boing reports that Boston apparently has not yet satisfied its appetite for blowing up random stuff. Today, freedom is safe from at least one traffic monitoring thingie.

What’s the deal with Boston? I mean, mechanical and electrical devices get installed every day in cities all across the country. They don’t put up special signs identifying them as officially sanctioned, unsuspicious devices everywhere else, do they?

I just don’t understand why this keeps happening. Maybe if people in this country would follow international news half as closely as American Idol, they’d realize that homemade bombs often just look like a car.

  1. I don’t feel you are taking this threat a seriously as you should. I, instead, will endeavor to be part of the solution. I am even now calling the authorities about these 4′ high silver boxes suspiciously left near many of the traffic lights here in town. The infernal devices within are obviously tied to our infrastructure, as they suspiciously click (with a pronounced, suspicious “clicking” sound) whenever the traffic lights change.
    So lay off our heroic patriot brothers in Boston. Remember, unless we blow up everything with wires (or worse, flashing lights) the terrorists win.
    And I have money down on the Patriots to at least cover the spread.
