    Death toll at the Bataclan seems to be 100 people. They threw explosives at the hostages.

    It's being reported that there are about 100 dead in that concert hall. From BBC:

    AFP quotes police sources as saying about 100 people have been killed in the Bataclan concert venue.

    The French channel iTele, quoting un-named officials at the Bataclan, earlier said there were "dozens" of fatalities inside the club.

    I honestly don't know what else to say as that has been my reaction now for a solid hour. I am thankful all I know in Paris, even the hateful twat I went to college with, are okay, but fuck me. I am now very scared at what the fallout of this is going to be.

    I was just reading (AFP) that the Paris attacks happened at seven different locations. Holy shit indeed. This fucking scares me.

    ^ Yeah, it was obviously carefully coordinated and planned. It was not a random thing and it would have required lots of time and resources. Attacks happened nearly simultaneously all over the city. I keep seeing reports that it's "over" on Twitter from various news sources but I'd like to know how they know that.

    Not sure if true or not now, live feeds for this all seem to counter each other and "breaking news" published doesn't seem to be proven true or not. Yay media.

    Horrific and senseless. Those poor people. This shit is never going to end. It's beyond religious extremism. Our species is incapable of peace.

    I try to remain optimistic and hopeful.

    Sometimes, it's really fucking hard.
    At my core, I think we're gonna be OK.

    It's easy to give up. Sometimes things seem a little better or a little worse than usual, but the "usual" is pretty grim.
