Terrorists: They’re Just Like Us!

6 May

from nypost.com

They take out the trash!  They hail a taxi!  They hate Times Square too! 

Ahem.  So, the cover of this morning’s New York Post is an EXCLUSIVE photo of times-square-would-be-pathfinder-bomber Faisal Shahzad’s room in Connecticut, which basically consists of an air mattress and a bare desk.  I think the purpose of the photos is to show the obvious link between the temporary nature of his minimalist habitat and his alleged terrorist leanings.  He doesn’t even have a bed frame!  Instead, Faisal’s pad just kind of reminds me of my first four apartments… 

Oh, and my office.  

my temporary office

If you go online, you can see even more photos of his house and kitchen, including the contents of his cabinets and fridge.  This is where the similarities get scary.  Cheap furniture, no food besides Oreos and pita bread, Pantene Pro-V…. Did he live with Mazall and Claire too?!

    His kitchen is nicer than mine. This makes me a little uncomfortable.

    Grim apartment, creepy lair of the beast, at least we’re not sensationalizing this.

    Is that all you get for $1150 a month in CT? I thought the ‘burbs were more…spacious.

    How no one was tipped off by the purchase of reduced fat oreos is the main security issue here.

Go ahead, say it.
