So the professional services team is professional in name only and not necessarily attitude... at least the bar has been lowered and you can deliver more easily ;)

Be interesting to find out... looks like most of the injured/dead are from being trampled because people are stupid when panicked.
But until more investigation is done I think we are going to find out...

Yeah I saw a report that a lot of injuries are to the lower body, something similar to the Boston marathon bombings, backpack packed with shrapnel dropped on the ground

Reports of a second bomb going off outside as people left as well... pretty shitty, but I don't expect anything different anymore.

I seriously don't get the mindset that murdering random people would be a righteous action. I understand revenge, I understand self-defense, but I'm at an utter loss when it comes to terrorism.

Being treated as a terrorist incident until the police know more. Second explosion was a controlled detonation of something that wasn't a bomb. Explosion seems to have been timed to coincide with people getting out of the concert but expect more details to emerge as the day goes on, I guess. :(

ISIS have apparently posted online that they are celebrating this attack but haven't claimed responsibility.

Bomb seems to be similar to the one used in Boston with a lot of lower body injuries.

As Mythor said, we'll just have to wait as this is investigated and more info is released. Either way, who ever did this is extra sick to be targeting so many young kids.

Waiting for Trump to blame Iran :roll:

Went to visit my grandma, notice she has a white box installed in her kitchen. Turns out to be a NBN box which I assume means she has FTTP.

Meanwhile I wait till Jan 2018 for crappy FTTN :(

I noticed my FTTN has been pushed back a month (from June 2017 to July 2017). Hopefully no more delays

At first I thought "first aid kit... oh dear, Ralph's granny is becoming more prone to injuries in her old age". Amazing how one's mind changes with how they interpret things after spending half a year looking after a sick loved one.

I thought the same thing... FTTP and home cooked meals FTW!

Or is granny well versed in the 4 man meta in Diablo 3? We got a few older ladies in my clan... they solo higher GRs than I do :oops:

Couple of reasons spring to mind
1. Your interpretation of your religious texts and/or the voices in your head told you to do so.
2. Particularly for the religious or cultural slant, it will further alienate people of the same religion/culture in the community targeted so that they feel threatened and more likely to join you. More soldiers for the cause.

IS have claimed responsibility. Death count up to 22 now. Includes an 8yo girl. Apparently the attacker died at the scene too.

I see stricter border security coming out of this. Won't be surprised if Trump starts dropping bombs sometime soon.

IS quite often claim responsibility for acts they had nothing to do with, it makes them seem bigger than they are. That's not to say they don't have anything to do with this, but it has happened in the past.

Travelling interstate on the train (about half the cost of a flight for me) and found out there's no charging points on the train... Better be thrifty with my phone usage!!

Writing selection criteria for one job tonight, then I have an interview for another job tomorrow. It's times like this I wish I could just be content with my current circumstances. It would be a lot less work - especially when I'm moving in 3 weeks time.
