Can we send them all to an island somewhere?

On Sunday, a gunman entered a church, shot and killed the minister, then turned a knife on the people that tried to subdue him, before finally turning the knife on himself.

Yesterday, a man burned down his mother’s home, shot and killed nine people, then shot himself.

This morning, the news reported a gunman opening fire on a school in Germany killing sixteen people, including himself.

I’m not trying to go all conspiracy theorist on you folks, but there’s something up here.  Did you ever notice that these tragedies happen in waves?  Is it the phase of the moon?  Is there something in the water?  What compels a person to take out so many people just so they can get around to killing themselves?  I mean, if you’re going to off yourself anyway, why not just do it and leave everyone else alone?  And I’m getting really tired of this whole temporary insanity garbage.  If you are so unstable that you are driven to commit an irreparable act of violence on an innocent person, then you need to be out of society forever.  You cannot be trusted to keep your wits about you.  I don’t think you should be executed or anything like that, but I do think you should go away forever.  No more of this crap where a psychologist deems you fit for society.  You’ve already proved that you can’t handle society.  Sorry!  You messed up big and you have to pay for it.  I know this is a Debbie Downer post, but I notice that every time there is a loony shooting up a church or a school, all his homeys decide they’re going to do it, too.  Is there some sort of message board where they all chat and plan out their dastardly deeds?  Assholes.


A rare quiz.

Your Word is “Think”

You see life as an amazing mix of possibilities, ideas, and fascinations.

And sometimes you feel like you don’t have enough time to take it all in.You love learning. Whether you’re in school or not, you’re probably immersed in several subjects right now.

When you’re not learning, you’re busy reflecting. You think a lot about the people you know and the things you’ve experienced.

I don’t take quizzes very often, but I saw this one on Kathy’s blog and thought it looked interesting.  It’s pretty accurate for me, I think.  (heh)
