      It's kind of embarrassing to live in this area now... Menino needs to let it go and let the spotlight go somewhere else...

      That should hang over the entrance to City Hall, as a reminder to the powers that be that not everything they don't understand is a danger to the public.

      I wish those assholes could spend half a million dollars in a few hours to fix the Expressway so that I didn't feel like I am driving through a demilitarized zone in Iraq every morning...

      Hey, funny shot and I am off my soap box now.

      Thanks for sharing :)

      (Oh, that photo of the Gov. Patrick is great, nice work)

      Great pic! I echo shveckle's comment: ONLY IN BOSTON would this happen.

      the guy on the right found out somewhere online where all the mooninites had been placed (i think it was a google maps mashup), and sent his girlfriend out on the trail (he was working late). She found one still intact (kendall sq. i think?), beating the press and the police and everyone else on the hunt.

      I loved this debacle so much. It got better and better with each news story. Long live ATFH!

      I don't think I've shaken my head quite so much during a news story for some time. How fabulous you managed to get one. I imagine you could make a killing on ebay if that casino that likes to buy up weird stuff finds out about the auction. Or you could just keep it and do the talk show circuit :)

      Seen in the interestingness archives. (?)

      I think the bigger question should be, it these were actual terrorist they would have been screwed. The problem is that nobody noticed the Gorilla's putting up the "detonators"...

      Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Its a bomb. A bomb!!!!

      Hilarious. That is really awesome that you got to one and were able to defuse it before anything happened...

      i agree with what glintruder said.

      i mean, obviously a lite brite of a mooninite with exposed duracell batteries is a danger to the city. i wish they would fix the roads in boston. ya know, maybe they could add some freaking street signs or something. hell, my aunt and her wife had trouble finding my hotel near Logan yesterday - and they were using GPS...

      In defense of the public officials, you have to give credit for the vigilance they had to protect Boston. Sadly now terrorist have a great idea for a new weapon. Thank God it was not a bomb, and if it were some thoughts on here would be in opposite direction. The lack of caution used in 9 other cities could have cost lives if it were a bomb. I feel we have forgotten that an innocent appearing 767 was used in the most horrific manners. If they want to strike again, they will, so long as we forget the emotion and events of September 11, 2001. The promoters of these boards should have let the Cities know they were doing such a great pubicity stunt, at worst they will get a ticket for littering though --- There was no intent only extra vigilance on a great city's behalf.
