The Boston Marathon tragedy has left many in distress, 176 wounded and 3 dead, and with more details beginning to unravel, investigators now think that the bombs were 6-liter pressure cookers hidden in backpacks.

According to reports, one of the bombs contained metal and ball bearings, while another was jam packed with nails.

Law enforcement officials are saying that the explosives were dubbed as low, which means they traveled under 3,300 feet per second and were not strong enough to create a blast wave, but were strong enough to blast the ammo from long distance.

Boston Marathon Tragedy: 3 Confirmed Dead & 154 Injured

The aftermath of the Boston Marathon tragedy is far from pretty.

Reports are now confirming a total of 3 people dead, which includes an 8-year-old boy, and over 150 people hospitalized with at least 17 in critical condition and 41 in serious condition. At least eight of the wounded individuals are children.

Orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Albert Pendleton, who was helping out at the race's medical tent said that the tragedy was "basically like the bomb took out he legs of everybody. It was horrific," and considering that ball bearings were removed from wounded patients, a terrorism export is suggesting that the bombs were created to explode before they reached their target.

Marilyn Manson Bombs Spring Breakers Premiere!

marilyn manson bombs spring breakers premiere

We know Marilyn Manson uses lots of pyrotechnics at his live shows, but is Hollywood Boulevard really the best place for that?

The Beautiful People rocker was in attendance at the Spring Breakers premiere party at the Emerson Theater.

Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) to see Marilyn at the event where witnesses say he threw a smoke bomb out of his car window!

Was this an early review of the movie? Because a simple tweet would have sufficed!

Of course, it's possible he was just getting into the chaotic spirit of the Spring Break-centered film.

Or maybe he was just trying to give James Franco and Ashley Benson some cover for their secret makeout session!

Like some kind of Sex Ninja! OMG, side project band name! Someone write it down! LOLz!

Lana Del Rey Bombs Underwhelms On SNL

What an awkward performance.

Lana Del Rey was set to be one of the up and coming artists of 2012, but nowwwww, we're not so convinved.

She did her first major performance on SNL last night and well…um….hmm…how do we put this delicately?

She bombed.

LOL, sorry, but her voice was all over the place, she was off-key, and had zero stage presence. She looked completely uncomfortable on stage and even made us uncomfortable just watching her.

Yikes.

She did look pretty though!

Watch her performance of Blue Jeans above to see what we mean.

And if you're dying for more, watch her second performance, Video Games, click after the jump.

Peter Andre's Song Bombs

Filed under: AnglophiliaMusic MinutePeter Andre

Yikes!

Peter Andre's latest single Perfect Night totally bombed on the UK Singles Charts. The song only managed to hit the #48 spot - a much different record than what the singer was used to in the '90s.

Whomp whomp.

Even though Pete tried to promote the single by appearing on QVC, it didn't work. Luckily, he seems to be okay with the lack of success his music is getting. Pete says:

"I don't think it will chart as high as I'd like it to but, as the old saying goes, "If at first you don't succeed, dust yourself off and try again.

It's a real shame that people won't play my songs on the radio, but I'm not bitter about it as I have so many things to be grateful for. I've always said my kids are my fiercest critics but Junior absolutely loves Perfect Night, so that's good enough for me."

That's the spirit, Pete! Family is way more important than your career! Way to have priorities!

Mice Trained For Airport Security

Mice detect bombs and drugs

Woah! We can honestly say we NEVER saw this coming.

Israeli scientists have discovered that mice are more accurate than dogs or x-ray machines to detect bombs and drug couriers so they have created a detector containing three concealed cartridges with 8 specially trained mice to do the job.

The contraption looks similar to a full-body scanner, but instead of x-ray, rely's solely on specially trained mice that sense traces of drugs and run to a side chamber where the trigger an alarm.

Inventor Eran Lumbroso who hopes larger companies will help with the final stages of development said:

"It is as if they are smelling a cat and escaping. We detect the escape."

For those concerned with animal cruelty it seems like the mice are taken care of. They work in 4 hour shifts and have fresh air pumped into their respective cartridge.

Sounds like an inneresting idea! What do U think?
