    Terrorist attacks in Paris

    Dude, I'm in Paris right now and wondering what all the commotion was about with all the police cars and ambulances driving by. Turns out there was/were shooting(s) with at least 11 killed. Supposedly there were 2 explosions heard near the shooting site.

    Don't worry, I'm an American and am used to shootings.

    I'd suggest you don't make jokes that involve Allah Akbar :D .Though I hear of the incident right now,as I'm typing.

    Local news reports now 40 dead with 100 taken hostage at the concert hall. I'm less than a mile away from the shooting scene and probably walking outside as it went on.

    News reports Les Halles shopping mall was attacked. That's 1/2 mile from me.

    You can be sure the media will not report it in the way described in this vid, which also in a way applies to terrorism.

    Yeah but that makes too much sense and doesn't make money.

    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "My ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."- Isaac Asimov

    I will.

    TV now showing lots of French CT surrounding the concert hall.

    Border is shut down. French military mobilized. Curfew on the street. Looks like I have to survive on macaroons and scotch.

    Some "analyst" on Sky News says "we don't know who or what may have inspired these attacks. We don't know if they are domestic activities or from without."

    Seriously?

    I'll give you one guess.
