Unconfirmed Reports Of Explosives In Four Harvard Buildings Prompt Evacuation

Tyler Durden's picture


Update: some additional information on what the "motivation" behind the bomb scares may have been from The Wire:

Following unconfirmed reports of explosives at four central buildings on the Harvard University campus, the school was forced to cancel Monday morning's exams. The bomb threat led to the evacuation of the Science Center, Thayer, Sever and Emerson Halls "out of an abundance of caution," Harvard said in a statement. While it's not clear what, exactly, prompted the evacuation, the not-conidential timing of the threat will give some nervous a reprieve:

The bomb scare has moved to the Ivies. Just out from the Harvard twitter account:

IF these explosions/bombs were in the Cambridge projects, no one would give two shits.

but if he's in favor of blowing up federal buildings and police stations, he sounds ok to me.

I say shut down Harvard completely.  They turn out a shitty product, anyway. See congress and the senate for a sample of the end product they provide.  THe world would be a better place if they boarded up all the widows in that cesspool.

Without Harvard, there would be no Supreme Court Justices.


Are you under the impression it is a coincidence that 9 out of 9 justices are Harvard grads? Does it not tell you how much the fix is in for them, and how no other university in America seems able to turn out a person adequate for the Court?


What a totally corrupt sytem they rule over. They are the next target of ridicule and mocking.

Explosives in the Science Centre???  Of course there are explosives in the science centre.  It's the Science Centre!  Lemme guess, they came in a delivery truck and got delivered to the Chemistry Department?

Wake me up when they find explosives in the Economics Department.  Then we might finally make some progress...

What is to like about Harvard?  They graduate some of the most destructive people you will ever meet.  AA wrecked the medical school and this is from a Harvard grad I knew who went there.

To be safe, you must do exactly what the government and its agents tell you to do. Only government will make you safe from the threats the government has created.

Today, the government says you must hop on one leg and bark like a dog.  Bark louder, comrade.

It's actually quite neoliberal with tons of conversatives on campus. While the students maybe Occupy loving, the administration is not.  Also, many of the kids who go to school actually don't think inequality it's a big issue (in a recent campus survey, only 10% cited it as a major issue)...mostly because fixing the issue would most likely mean taking money out of mommy and daddy's pockets.

Liberal does not equal statist.  Being stupid (and thinking you are smart) does, however.
