    Question Does anyone see a problem in these photos from the Boston tragedy?

    Just curious...one photo was taken 6 seconds after the bomb...the other obviously at some point during the Watertown search. Does anyone have any concerns after looking at these photos? Maybe it is me....

    well.. on the first one, it looks like the T1000 just saw John Conner and is after him.. and the second, appears that the old man has way more muscle tone than I do at a healthy 30yrs of age.

    dude.. you're gonna have to point it out to me...

    I'm not sure what concern you have with them...the only similarity seems to be cops running with their guns drawn, which I see nothing wrong with.

    Fingers are indexed, in the second shot, there was clearly an unknown threat at the time. Not sure what was going on in the first shot, but I don't necessarily see a problem.

    Anything taken out of context can look odd. I don't know about the night shot of the cops running, but the runner down just after the explosion, he has been interviewed several times. The bomb blast knocked him off his feet. The cops are running by him to get closer to the action.

    Looks fine to me. The first photo was taken mere seconds after the first or second blast. Weapons are not pointed at anyone. Looks like good muzzle discipline and no fingers on the trigger.

    The comb over doesn't bother me.

    OP: Want to clue us in? And if it is the weapons being drawn can you explain what your issue is with it?

    Kinda looks like they are trying to do what they can.I'm guessing when a bomb goes off,you do what you think is best,and try not to freak out.

    In one photo are the numbers 911 and 448, which add up to 1359.

    The sequence 1-3-5-9 begins with 1-3-5. Next in sequence should be 7, but instead, it is 9. The Odd Prime 7 is thus skipped. I find that incredibly annoying.

    To the op, if you see something say it. Games like these are rather boring and you're bound to get smart arse remarks (touche if that is what you seek).

    The number 1359 is rather boring. It is not a Bell, Fibonacci, Catalan, Hamming, or a perfect number. But here is some interesting items about it.
    The sum of its Divisors is 1976- 200 year b-day for US
    The previous Prime Number is 1327- In that year two Kings got crowned. King Edward III of England and King Alfonso IV of Aragon
    The next Prime Number is 1361-Philip I, Duke of Burgundy dies
    1359 in Octal is 2517- The year 2517 is when Firefly is set.

    So what you're proposing is Che Guevara was the second gunman on the grassy knoll? That's what I thought I saw in pictures, too - I'm glad I'm not a conspiracy nut!

    No. No. It is perfectly fine that the 7 is missing. 1 plus 3 = 4; 4 Plus 5 =9 ; Nothing to see here.

    At what? For why? I am going to guess that is the OP's issue.
