A 19-year-old man from Virginia went to New York for the holiday weekend and had to have part of his leg amputated after a small explosion in Central Park.

The internet, in response, went mad with backwater speculative theories. The most strange theory is clearly from folks who don’t get out often and has focused on, the amount of available camera crews in NYC. Imagine that, camera crews in NYC, wow – standdown Sherlock Holmes, social media is on the case. Other crackpots have blamed Daesh (ISIS,) or terrorism in general, an orchestrated false flag attack overseen by President Obama, and a malicious attack by the FBI to inflate next year’s budget – even though the fiscal year, accounting period for the federal government does not start until October.
