Tsarnaev Brothers May Have Planned To Go To NYC After Boston Marathon Bombings

“kind of a big jump to take. dude didn't even know what language they were speaking but somehow heard "Manhattan."”

1BlueJeanGirl on Apr 22, 2013 at 14:30:21

“so you were in the car and heard them speak a different language??”

Frank-ly Speaking on Apr 22, 2013 at 14:29:03

“Manhattan is Manhattan. Many people insert English words when they speak a foreign language. I'm thinking that maybe even you could understand them.”

Buddy430 on Apr 22, 2013 at 14:25:10

“It is a proper name, Manhattan is still "Manhattan" no matter what language "dude" may speak.”

daydayzee on Apr 22, 2013 at 14:24:14

“they have been here since very young so probably could clearly say Cities , schools airports, that do not have a different word in their language”

“Manhattan is the same in any language. Novo York would be New York in Russian but Manhattan is Manhattan.”

Mary Roache Harding on Apr 22, 2013 at 14:19:25

“There are some/many words that just cannot be translated into another language...
Manhattan is probably one of them....No doubt at all that he heard "Manhattan".
I used to hear my Italian grandmother talking to my mother in Italian but always knew who they were talking about because a name--in English was mentioned,,”

alhorvath on Apr 22, 2013 at 14:17:34

“Not a big jump at all. Manhattan sounds like Manhattan in any language.”

Natalie Y on Apr 22, 2013 at 14:14:35

“You don't have to fully understand a language to pick up words.”

Ken Koziol on Apr 22, 2013 at 14:13:45

“Have not traveled much. Other langages don't have words in there language for some new common words, take computer, it is computer in many languages.
So even New York would be New York in another language.”

cscott2 on Apr 22, 2013 at 14:11:01

“Agree GitZeit. Don't believe they would have divulged that information.”

Brian Childers on Apr 22, 2013 at 14:10:35

“you pronounce "Manhattan" the same, because it is a name. There would be no translation.”

danaschwenzfeier on Apr 22, 2013 at 14:10:28

“Not a big jump at all. If you are in the company of people who are speaking a language that is foreign to you, you will notice ANY word that's in your language. Proper English words are especially noticeable since, for many of those words, there is no "other language" translation. Manhattan is one of those words.”

Hans Bickel on Apr 22, 2013 at 14:07:46

“Probably heard "marathon" in a heavy accent.”

Joshua Christian on Apr 22, 2013 at 14:05:47

“arent some words the same even in other languages?”

einnoc4 on Apr 22, 2013 at 14:05:28

“Well, I'm pretty sure "Manhattan" is the same in most any language. Haven't you ever been around people speaking a different language and only been able to pick out the English words? That's what this person apparently did...”

sakwyc on Apr 22, 2013 at 14:05:12

“Probably stood out like a sore thumb. xoxofoihierhsnke iwhr manhattanxifuo uoixoce. Something like that.”

“I think this carjacked guy needs to be looked at closely...”

rdruhl on Apr 22, 2013 at 14:04:43

“The news does this all the time, saying more than what was truly said.”

wetvprodcr on Apr 22, 2013 at 14:03:41

“It's not that far fetched though. We did have two runs in Manhattan this past weekend, they could have planned to "attend" those, too.”

“I hate when teachers would lower your grade for a BS reason such as "missing one class" or "didn't raise her hand enough"”

rainbow cadet on Feb 13, 2013 at 17:31:40

“Never had a professor threaten to lower a grade for missing one class... missing too many classes, yes.... but not for missing one class. Most of my professors put in their syllabus, they would drop you down a grade if you missed more than two classes, which would allow for the occasional illness. Also had a few professors who would take perfect attendance into consideration when someone had a borderline grade, like an 89.9.., would bump the grade up to the A for that perfect attendance.”

natal plum on Feb 13, 2013 at 13:22:28

“Yeah, that usually motives one to attend class, open their eyes and pay attention.”

“How is it breed discrimination to report the fact that four pit bulls attacked the vehicle? Do you think HuffPo wouldn't have reported that it was four chihuahuas (or golden retrievers or dalmations or whatever) if, in fact, chihuahuas did the damage?”

“I would hope people in general would be smart enough not to condemn kids for goofing off no matter their grade point average.

I've never lived my life with political correctness and I never will and I have a 4.23 GPA. Be an adult and ignore things that offend your sensibilities.

It amazes me that we can have these types of jokes and characterizations in movies and books but it's not something that supposed to be done in the real world. Get a grip people. It was just a joke.”
