Couldn’t sleep, so I was doing the next dangerous thing: reading email and news.
After looking at a few still-photos of the Boston bombing, and comparing it with some video I did with muzzleloaders a few months ago, I find myself wondering if this was a crude black powder blast.
Not smokeless. Not substitute.
There’s lots of light-colored smoke and orange fire but not much energy when compared to modern military compounds.
On to motive:
It’s natural to wonder what kind of person would do such a thing.
There is, after all, a reason for everything; crazy people always have a reason for perpetrating evil deeds on innocent people.
I’m at a loss to comprehend what a single psychotic person would gain by the commission of such an act.
I -can- think of a few “under the radar” things that a government could stand to gain. I certainly hope I’m very wrong about that.
