My office building is literally on that corner, spanning Lexington 42nd-41st. Luckily I left the city on a 5pm bus home to Boston, but they evacuated the building and lots of my coworkers were left without personal items such as cells and keys and are worried about asbestos exposure. The building's closed tomorrow and I'd bet Friday too.

Why is this even a poll?
There's a poll because as a premium member it affords me that blessing.

And that's the fair dinkum, hoping this spares me a terrible earbashing.

I think the poll should be:

Troll?

Uninformed?

Fear mongerer?

Your being premium and able to start polls doesn't answer the question. Why is this topic poll worthy? It's a non-issue to essentially everyone it seems.

PS The fair dinkum needs to be followed by something, diamond. It's the fair dinkum truth, or something is fair dinkum bullshit.

whoa, we work very close to each other! my office building's closed today, too. when it first happened, all we heard was an incredibly loud rumbling sound, and then we saw plumes of smoke (which turned out to be steam). we immediately thought it was some sort of explosion/attack, and ran for the fire exits. quite scary, but thankfully not nearly as bad as it could have been....

It's scary.
So let me get this straight. You find it funny for someone to say about Bono "Id break his fucking heart by murdering his family in front of him." , but "youtube comments piss you off more than just about anything in the entire world"?

I'd bet there are those who WANT it to be terror attack.

Any guesses as to whether those people would be Republicans or Democrats?

Feds Seize Rocket Launcher In N.J.
AT-4 Launcher Found On Jersey City Lawn

Scott Weinberger
Reporting

(CBS) JERSEY CITY A Jersey City woman made a shocking discovery on her lawn this morning when she noticed a military rocket launcher lying in the grass.

Niranjana Besai was leaving her house, located at 88 Nelson Street, to go to work just after 8 this morning when she spotted the launcher on her front lawn. "I read it and it [said] 'missile,'" Besai told CBS 2 HD. "There was little 'missile' [writing] on it."

She immediately called police.

Sources tell CBS 2 HD that the device is an AT-4 missile launcher that is used to fire against tanks and buildings. The device was first approved by the U.S. Army in 1985 and questions are being raised as to whether the device was stolen from a branch of the military.

Its very powerful warheads can penetrate through well over a foot of armor.

What's more troubling, sources add, is that Besai's house is located along flight path for Newark Liberty International Airport.

Besai's neighbor, Joe Quinn, saw her pointing at the device from her front porch. When he walked over to see what the fuss was about, he was just as shocked to see weapon, said to be about three or four feet long and weighing about 15 pounds.

"She's pointing that there's something in the front," he told CBS 2 HD. "I said, 'Let me come down and take a look,' and I saw a little soldier on it and I said, 'Whoa, that's a missile launcher or something!'"

Quinn says he originally thought the launcher was just a pipe, but after noticing the picture of the soldier -- which he described as a soldier kneeling, holding the launcher -- he realized it looked similar to a missile launcher he'd seen on television. "I got scared myself," he says. "It looked like a bazooka, and right away you think what does somebody want with something like that?"

Digg This Story!

Jersey City Police removed the launcher, and the incident is now being investigated by the Joint Terrorism Task Force and the FBI.

Yes, large weapons usually do strike terror or at least death.

Well, whoever these terrorist were, they weren't the sharpest bunch:

"Okay, we're ready to shoot down the planes. Where's the missile?"

"Uh. . .the missile?"

"Yes, the missile! Don't you have it?"

"No, I thought you had it!"

"Oh. . .man, I must a dropped back there in that New Jersey neighborhood. Dangit!"

"Dangit!"

Those bastards in the Bush administration. Did anyone notice how all those threat level warnings stopped the moment Bush won the 2004 election? They have to pay big time!
