  8. Attempted New York bombing

    A sign of the times I guess but surprised there's not already a thread on this. Guy tried to blow himself up during rush hour in the corridor/tunnel that connects PA bus station with the subway. Could have left 100s dead or injured if he'd been successful. Scary stuff.
