Tens of thousands of Twitter users crowded onto the Boston Police Department scanner early on Friday morning as reports of a shoot-out were emerging from Watertown.

Most damaging of all Twitter users began to circulate a rumour that a missing Indian-American student was one of the bombers. Even one of his friends tweeted that his picture matched one of the men sought by the FBI. It took only a moment for his name to be flashed all over the internet, to the dismay of his parents who have not heard from him for over a month. The wildfire of speculation that the student was involved was only brought under control after NBC News directly contradicted the internet reports. It is emphatically not about making sure any allegations resulting from the picture are made public,” said the New Statesman’s Alex Hern. Imagine if people were standing around in Boston pointing fingers at people in photographs and roughly accusing them of terrorism.

Last year, Lyman came in 41st place, with a time of 2: This year, he hopes to beat the time, and to do it, his training is rigorous, as Lyman said. In college, Lyman said he was relatively reserved, until, as a freshman, he entered a wing-eating competition at the school. He said that he was surprised when he easily defeated larger individuals, like school seniors and football players in the contest. Four years in a row, Lyman said he won wing-eating competitions in college and, after he graduated, he decided to try his hand in Wing Bowl.

In the days before an eating contest, Lyman said that he drinks a lot of water to help stretch out his stomach lining. And, as in running or during an eating competition, Lyman said, you can hit a wall, but you just have to endure.

The same thing with running.
