After the Boston Marathon bombings this week, there were many joint efforts to get injured people to the hospital, donate blood and identify the perpetrator(s).

It was moving, really, how everyone came together.

Congress just passed a drug testing law that has a lot of people outraged. Do you think this is wrong?

For the most part.

On CraigsList.com (of course), some people in Boston decided to try to get sex via anonymous ads in the personals section, reports Salon.com.

One ad headlined: "Care to celebrate life with me today?" The ad's text stated: "Just want human contact, celebrate life in face of it. Looking for making out and touching."

There were also ads in "Missed Connections" from people who were standing next to someone that they were attracted to right before the blast.
