if you're going to allow guns on the scale the US allows, you will get these things happening.

ok, first, im NOT sober, and Ive, lets say, partaken in my share of personal adventures. And I too, came out of unscathed...or so Id like to think.

But I know a couple people who didnt.

And if you think that acid and horror mix, then you have a stronger mind than most.

Now I dont know what this guy had in the back of his, nor do I know what was going on with him before hand, for all we know, he could have been on meth or PCP or ALL KINDS of whacked shit. No doubt, guns and drugs dont mix either, but damn, drugs, guns, zombies, is this real life, or fucking Evil Dead?

Sorry, you can profess the wonders of e and psychedelics all you want, but Ive seen people go off the edge and not come back, and its no joke. Im not making judgment yet, I dont know the whole story, but Im eager to find out.

Pour a cap out for the fallen ones they'd want the parties to continue, for real.

The whole fear of dead things seems to be a common denominator among bad trips from what I've heared but I've never had one. It seems like this guy really just wanted to get laid and ended up extending his manhood in more inappropriate ways. In some ways you could argue that the US's current political leader is doing the same thing, but it all comes down to accusations.

For what it is worth I feel this clearly implicates the mindset of NRA friendly neanderthals and in no way reflects the influence of marijuana on anyone.

They say that the poles will melt by 2060. Were all fucked anyway.

This is just another reason why I choose not to live in the US any more.

It's embarassing, humiliating, and I'm actually ashamed to let anyone know I'm American.

well, err Africa, Brazil, Russia, Philippines , fuck it the list is too long...
complex-ridden boys are generally the most dangerous types. They have something to prove to their friends, or they are moved by some sick self-destructive pulsions. Honestly I see these types much more in "free" countries like Canada or America... coz there we dont really know what real violence is. We first know it from the tv and video games...

Here in Moscow you just CAN'T fool around and play the bad boy like that coz
1- someone will quickly teach u what a real bad boy is
2- even buyin a cappuccino requires you passin thru a metal detector :wink:

I know it's popular in these George W Bush times to rubbish Michael Moore, but "bowling for Columbine" really makes a good point when he goes to Detroit and then goes accross the river into Canada and they dont even lock their doors - he goes into the statistics of gun murders in the US and compares it with the rest of the world and that in itself should be pretty conclusive

Michael Moore's point was that guns weren't the problem, but the culture of fear and violence in the US was. He gave the example of Canada, where there's just as much guns per capita, but much less killings per capita.

Why all the america hating - not cool

some kids died at the hand of a crazy person - sort of happens

Lets see it for what it is a tragedy and that's it - has nothing to do with being American, Jewish or gentile - if this was the case for all american's I'd stay away from DJ DAN and Donald next time they play out - and if any Euro's think their going to see DJ SNEAK, Roger Sanchez or Jeff Mills without getting shot, think again - doh!

quit hating...

or better yet

If you don't want to be called a Negative Nancy stop it, unless you want everyone to call you negative Nancy from now on.

its not america hating...
its people trying to say something is messed up in america.. nobody would bother saying anything if they didnt care...

see if the situation was say in palestine and it was a suicide bomber, people say 'theres something fucked up and fundamentally wrong with that person and that country and that race' ... but when it happens in america (all too often) people are like 'yeah well shit happens'
