    Can't really see too much other than the panic after the fact.

    what's so scary, this idiot has to be the most incompetent terrorist of all time. At least three deployed bombs and a backpack full, multiple guns, nobody got seriously hurt, and he was caught 2 days later. This guy probably set records for total number of participation trophies in middle school

    Generational inbreeding isn't a good thing.

    anytime there are three deployed bombs on US soil certainly raises my concern level for when more adept terrorists visit

    what can you do, and besides what are the odds of you or someone you know actually getting hurt or killed. I like my chances and don't give any thought to this when I walk down the street

    I don't like seeing people killed... whether I know them or not. Perhaps when you get older your perspective will change... mine certainly has. I plan to die of old age, and know if I'm inattentive or have bad luck I'll get offed prematurely.

    I'm pushing 40 myself and my perspective has been pretty constant that it really sucks everyone will die. In fact it's downright disturbing when you really come face to face with it but I accept it as reality. Dying of old age does not change the fact that death will come, it's procrastination of the inevitable. Once you accept the fact you can really focus on quality of life and having an impact because you can't change the inevitable
