The criminal complaint filed against Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev provides insight into the the moments just before and just after the explosions, as well as new details of the manhunt to capture him. And they will leave you rather uneasy.
On Monday, Tsarnaev was charged with the use of a weapon of mass destruction and malicious destruction of property resulting in death.
When hijacking the car early Friday morning that ended up leading to the police chase and then manhunt, according to the complaint, one of the suspects said, "Did you hear about the Boston explosion, I did that."
The first one sold out, so now they have a second model!
This could totally happen to me. The only difference between the author and I is that instead of waiting until it was over to tell the world that I had been at my bang buddie's home all day in the lockdown of the city, I would have definitely been live tweeting it. Because that's how I get through most ridiculous things in my life.

You can actually hear their Boston accent...sort of amazing.
Also, very moving. I teared up.
Patton Oswalt has gone online and is trying to give Americans a hug. Check that. He is trying to tell people who are trying to hurt us to shove it. He is trying to tell us how strong we are. And I think it's a message we desperately need.
Yesterday's Boston Marathon attacks has left 3 people dead and at least 144 wounded. As the FBI takes over this investigation, it is still unclear what we will find. It's got us all rattled, for sure.
Today is also the anniversary of the Virginia Tech shooting.
If for no other reason today than because you're American, go something nice for someone today. Because it's true what Patton Oswalt said, "the good DO outnumber the bad, and we always will." America, F Yeah!
Cheng died at 3AM last night. His mother posted this note on the website for Chi, Oneloveforchi.com:
“Our dearest Family,
This is the hardest thing to write to you. Your love and heart and devotion to Chi was unconditional and amazing. I know that you will always remember him as a giant of a man on stage with a heart for every one of you. He was taken to the emegency [sic] room and at 3 am today his heart just suddenly stopped. He left this world with me singing songs he liked in his ear.
He fought the good fight.You stood by him sending love daily. He knew that he was very loved and never alone. I will write more later. I will be going through the oneloveforchi and any other information may not be reliable. If you have any stories or messages to share please send them to the onelove site. Please hold Mae and Ming and the siblings and especially Chi’s son, Gabriel in your prayers. It is so hard to let go.
With great love and “Much Respect!” Mom J (and Chi)”
After a car accident in Santa Clara, CA back in 2008, Chi suffered major injuries. He was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle. He was returning from his brother’s funeral when the accident occurred. This accident left Cheng in a minimally conscious state. In 2010, the musician showed improvement, responding to commands and moving his legs. After showing more signs of rehabilitation, he was moved to his home for recovery. He was in the hospital when he passed.
Immerse your senses...
In the can?
It's a new invention in beer drinking from the Sly Fox Brewing Company. The new "360 Lid" peels back like a soup can and exposes a 1.75 inch opening.
Now, will I drink this the way I drink wine? Probably not. Is it cool? Yeah, I'm into anything that makes me like drinking more. Who wouldn't be?!
