There is human tissue in the wreckage, and there was a gunshot 15 minutes before the explosion.

My first thought was boogs, ain't gonna lie.  But now I think it was a crazy person who set the timer and then shot himself.

I wondered that as well.

Waiting to hear what the FBI have to say before jumping to any conclusions, but that's certainly a reasonable possibility based on the very little we know.

My gut is telling me that the bomb maker is not this nutjob. Something this well planned and executed is likely the work of a dedicated and intelligent madman. Teaching some random psycho schmuck how to set a timer ain't all that hard. I suspect that the problem may well be ongoing. I would give A LOT to hear a recording of the exact message in total. The blast scorched the shit out of trees rather far away indeed. That's a helluva heat wash. Enough to make me wonder if it might have been a bit more advanced in composition and construction than your average hillbilly fertilizer bomb. But I don't know enough to really speculate. I DO see that they're being dodgy as fuck about the deets and how to characterize the event. Whatever it is this is an opening move, not game over.

Here's a video that starts a few seconds before the explosion. Um, trigger warning, maybe?

ETA: I guess you already found that. I'm kind of wondering if they used a shaped charge. That building was supposed to be bomb-proof.

I do not blame you one bit Cain. I think I shall exit myself after this post. I cannot well handle this as my mind is pretty much held together by synthetic positivity and cheap twine since the poisoning.

But I leave this fella's reporting as it was passed to me by a friend who knows a thing ot two on FB. The scope of the damage is horrible and ongoing beyond the ... Whatever that initial effect was.

Good times on the streets of NOLA doing my Wizard thing. Made a little more than bus fare on my first day and upon fiving a large blessed red bead to Mr. Escobar he gave me one of his INCREDIBLE tamales! Met LOTS of cool performers including 2 street magicians and a mother-son pair of cartomancers who drive 70 miles one way to do their thing in NOLA every day. Listening to big brass music on Jackson Square now and enjoying the cool night air!

I think the son of that mother son team of cartomancers is a friend of mine on facebook.  If so he's got quite the fascinating back story.

Quite possible. He has a marvelous fashion sense! I did not see them today, but spent more time with the street magicians, gav blessed rocks to a seer and a cartomancer... Then I met Raven. More of that story later.

EDIT: I'm terrible at joke execution, worse at mixing jokes and sensitive topics, and THE worst at recognizing and appreciating the INCREDIBLE luck I've been blessed with: To have been asymptomatic with COVID, know absolutely no one that has died from COVID, AND have not been impacted, career-wise, by COVID.

Please forgive any stupid insensitivity on my part regarding this post or any others.

Another one of my technicians has died of Covid19, as of about a half hour ago.  I just got the call.
