The car explosion, followed by a second explosion 2-3 minutes later took place at appx. 1:00pm EST in West Palm Beach, FL at a Security Bank branch 5-10 story office building at the corners of Boutwell and 10th St.

There are no reports yet of the extent of damage or injuries.

There is a report that the building housed not only the bank, but also a Federal Immigration Office.

Authorities from many departments and jurisdictions have responded to the explosion and have blocked entrances and exits to nearby Interstae 95.

One report says there is a 20 ft diameter crater in the ground at the scene of the blast and that eyewitness who was appx. 100 ft from the initial explosion reports being able to taste the explosive residue on her lips.

I think you're making this up. Search for "A car exploded today in West Palm Beach, FL at a Security Bank branch" in Google threw up nothing.

What, are you the ****ing AP? Did you hear it on the news, see it, or what, iWrite?

No local news alerts in Miami yet. Hoping to see something on this. CNN has nothing yet, either. Google gives me nothing.

45 minutes later, still no reports on the major news outlet web pages.


In another hour, I'll ask if I can have a puff too.

It is interesting to see the news timeline from initial report until it hits the air.

50 minutes seems like a long time to report to supposed car bombings, but I guess we'll see.

Works for me. I'm not much of a junkie anyway.


Is this one of the "Rumor" things where you start a rumor and see how long it takes to get to the Drudge Report? Sort of a six-degree's Kevin Bacon game but with made-up facts?

No thanks, you can keep your dawg.

But seriously, WTF? Aberdeen, you really should seek help. Or at least go outside for a day or two. You're twisting off in a not funny way.

Well, as of right now the Palm Beach Post has "flu shots for seniors" as their top story.

Oh well. See you after the ban.

First of all, if aberdeen's report is true, that's very sad.

Now, boots: That's an interesting idea.

*Newsflash*

Urgent:

Man found on the moon wearing nothing but a pair of jeans. It is thought that a UFO mistook the man for a cow in an Arizona farm. Upon realizing their error, they dumped his body on the moon and are thought to have returned to Earth to collect a real cow. The United States Homeland Defence Crew (or whatever the fcuk they call themselves), have said this is really the work of Al-Qaeeda and Pressie. Bush has ordered an immediate attack on any country that has oil, or drug producing fields.


Who, or what actually won the US election? Intolerance. The Bush campaign was built around pushing God down people's throats; attacking Gays; and more Guns for the idiotic. Gays, Guns & God. Congratulations, you just participated in one big joke.

Here's the Timeline

1. Swoop into MACNN Poli/War Lounge, spouting left-wing rhetoric, decrying The President as a war-mongering liar and cheat.

2. Do an about face, and suddenly start spouting right-wing rhetoric, decrying Kerry as a war-protesting liar and cheat.

3. Defend said about face with a more ludicrous timeline than this one.

4. Post a troll topic about an alleged car bomb to get banned in a flame of glory.

5. Vote.

6. Repeat in 4 years.

A local radio station morning show did this when I lived in Austin. (BJ and Sandy...last I know they had moved up to Dallas for a syndicated show...)

They told listeners that they were starting a rumor about David Letterman replacing Jay Leno. They had a really good reason why it would happen, too. Anyway, they asked everyone to spread the Rumor to see how long it would take to come back. Entertainment Tonight (I think it was ET) even did a little blurb that it was pretty much confirmed that Leno was getting out. It was pretty funny.


This was back in '96 or '97 I think.

My guess is that he's a Foreign Agent from Aberdeen trying to surrupticiously influence votes in Florida. I wonder if he's identified himself as such to the residents of Florida that he's been interacting with?

Why're people talking about this? A phony news report? (is this just another dawg & phoney show?)

Don't you people know what's IMPORTANT?

Fer cryin' out loud, JOHN KERRY BROUGHT UP THE FACT THAT DICK CHENEY'S DAUGHTER IS A LESBIAN!

Where's your sense of OUTRAGE? Where's your CONDOM-NATION???

Don't you know that John Kerry is a TERRORIST SYMPATHIZER and LESBIAN POINTER-OUTER?

At the very LEAST, where is your FEIGNED RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION?

I don't know what this world is coming to, just because some writer in aberdeen is apparently on his way to Florida to blow up something...whatever.
