I think the guy in the white hat looks like Ovechkin if he laid off the steroids and triple whoppers

Well, if they aren't connected to any terrorist organization, wouldn't nationalism be the next thing to look at?

I would like to think there's a reason for these 2 to do something like this other than "We just wanted to."

I mean, I just don't see why it matters that I'm curious as to what their nationalities are.

Not to be contrary, but why does the reason matter?
They (?) wanted to create a terror event and succeeded in doing so.

Reddit going with the theory of somebody who has been off the grid for almost a month.

Spoiler:

A clearer pic:

compared to suspect #2

The nose is very similiar. The person went missing from Providence, less than an hour from Boston. Is it a bit of a stretch? Probably.

Also, on Deadspin:

Residents of Hanover, MA reported hearing "explosions" on March 12th and 15th.

On March 16th, a Brown University student officially goes missing, leaves behind a cryptic note about wanting to lead a "unstructured life to find himself"

Not saying it's related.. but Hanover ain't too far from Providence and the time frame is wicked close together.

To add to the Hanover explosions, a few coincidences with what happened on Monday.
Hanover —
Hanover fire and police departments seek the public’s help in identifying suspects or providing information in relation to two recent incidents where, over the past week, witnesses have reported explosions.
Officials are concerned the explosive devices could lead to injury or property damage. The recovered explosives appear to be homemade.
“We’re hoping neighbors may have seen something that may help us identify those responsible for detonating the devices,” said Hanover Fire Chief Jeff Blanchard.
The first incident was reported at 8:34 p.m. on March 12. Police and fire personnel responded to the area of Pine Street and Tower Hill Drive. Witnesses at the nearby Target store on Washington Street reported seeing a bright flash and hearing two explosions from that area.
Several unexploded devices were found at the scene and later detonated under secure conditions by the State Police Bomb Squad.

I don't really see how that's relevant columbia.

I'm curious. That's it. I don't know why I'm being interrogated about it.

The nose, ears, chin and hair if not cut for a month or so comes pretty close to looking like that guy.

Well, I think it's pretty obvious that a lot of people are wondering where you're going to go with this... such as, "if they're Arabs, they must be terrorists."

The fact that they blew up the Boston marathon makes them terrorists.

No, I'm wondering if you could be. You haven't gone there yet.

I'm not making any assumptions, which is why I (and others) were trying to understand the root of your curiousity.
