Jayson Williams should have gotten some pointers from this kid.

Darwin Award?

N.B. And that isn't a dig at creationism before that stupid flamewar kicks off again.

i cant read the farking article! silly computers...DAMN YOU BILL GATES!
2002-03-20 09:27:49 AM  
"Whoa, whoa, whoa... Nice shootin', Tex!"
2002-03-20 09:28:20 AM  
This looks farked.

come to me my children. I can ease your pain.

Re-elect Daschle forever!

Link is farked, but I suspect that this is an example of culling the herd.

East Jack, for those who recognize the phrase, is the biggest collection of druggies, molesters and perverts in Missouri. Leftover from its Mormon days, I 'spose.

yeah, I have nothing good to say about anywhere...well, Manitoba's pretty nice.

Hey now, it was his constitutional right after all...
2002-03-20 09:30:27 AM  
Poor kid. Not only does he shoot himself in the head, he gets made fun of by the goons on Fark.
2002-03-20 09:30:41 AM  
My Prediction: 100 posts making fun of him, 100 saying that the 100 people making fun are assholes.
2002-03-20 09:31:21 AM  
that boy is as sharp as the leading edge of a mashed potato sandwich

2002-03-20 09:33:32 AM  
Frol: He's dead now, so doesn't care.
I'm not making fun of the kid.

But that was a farking stupid thing to do.
2002-03-20 09:34:19 AM  
Thank you Natural Selection!

Joejoe: As sad tag? My rosey red West Virginian, fat lardo rear end. How about a farking kilarious tag? Forgive me for not feeling the least bit sympathetic here but I do tech support all day. If more idiots would get this out of the way sooner I wouldn't have to deal with morons all day long. I mean give me a break when a person offs themselves in a way this stupid they deserve to be made fun of. And if I'm wrong may Jebus strike me dead.

Behold the power of Natural Selection.

"Frol: He's dead now, so doesn't care.
I'm not making fun of the kid."

You SHOULD be! Don't apologize for it. It's not like he was the innocent casualty of a stupid act. He committed it and HE suffered. Mock him and his spirit with glee. The harmfully stupid SHOULD be mocked. Mocking them should be a CELEBRATION so the borderline stupid learn from the example and think.

And it's funny.
2002-03-20 09:38:21 AM  
So we should award him the Silver Star for being a moron and shooting himself?

Give me a motherfarking break.
2002-03-20 09:38:39 AM  
I think you forgot:

This is just another bit of proof that guns are evil and must be banned.

for those of you who do not speak big dawgese Kilarious is when someone kills themselves or other in a funny way....

not really I'm a bad typest.
2002-03-20 09:40:03 AM  
Kids playing with guns = BAD NEWS 100% of the time.

Damn, not quick enough.

Independence, MO. Home of Harry Truman and dipshiats.
2002-03-20 09:43:22 AM  
Took, I'm all for making fun of stupid dead people, but that has to be tough for the family for him to die and to have everyone mock him. But, it would have happened some other way eventually.
stupid folk=danger
2002-03-20 09:44:31 AM  
His parents obviously taught him how to handle a gun.

Maybe they just didn't like him very much.
2002-03-20 09:49:20 AM  
Guns don't kill people, people twirling guns on thier fingers kill people ...
2002-03-20 09:49:42 AM  
Dead kids rule, although it would have been more amusing if he'd used the other 5 bullets to execute some of his annoying weiner friends.
2002-03-20 09:51:07 AM  
I've got a deal w/ a friend, that if I die doing something moronic, like bungee jumping, or parachuting, or falling off the roof of my house, etc... He will give me a headstone that reads "died after a lifelong battle with terminal stupidity..." People who die as a result of being dumbasses deserve to be remembered for it. That's how the rest of the tribe learns.
2002-03-20 09:52:01 AM  
I bet this kid had a killer basketball career in his future.

If only he had saved up for a shotgun, then he could've shot someone else.
2002-03-20 09:53:40 AM  
Guns don't kill people, people twirling guns on thier fingers kill people ...

Heh. Comedy gold.
2002-03-20 09:54:08 AM  
It's fun to see people fark themselves up when showing off. I laugh my ass off when a figure skater falls. Or when a race car driver crashes. That's damn funny. Don't show off, and you won't look like an idiot. Hell, Superdave Osborn and Bob Sagget built entire careers out of showing off and then falling flat on their face.
2002-03-20 10:01:34 AM  
If a kid can't shoot himself in the face with a handgun then the terrorists have won!
2002-03-20 10:02:55 AM  
Well, there's one less TJ Lazer around now. Besides, the kid was 17, he should've known better.
2002-03-20 10:03:15 AM  
Oh My God, this is so horrible. That a child so young should be killed needlessly. A real tragedy. Clearly we must blame someone for this sensless, barbaric act, and while it is true the gun manufacturers should be blamed, I think the real culprit here is 50's Westerns.

Think about it. How many times have you seen fictional characters like The Lone Ranger, The Rifleman, or Roy Rogers twirl guns around their fingers, to the delight of those around them. And of course, they always did it perfectly. Those TV shows never showed the guns going off in the faces of those that were twirling them. Clearly this is reckless behavior on the part of the TV studios producing 50's Westerns.

I would like to take this opportunity to announce a boycott of all 50's Western TV shows, and I hope that you will all join me in this. Do not watch any 50's Western TV shows that appear on any of the major networks during prime time.

Hold on, I gotta go to the rotisserie and see if my kitten is fully cooked.
2002-03-20 10:06:22 AM  
I'm wondering what kind of dumbfark twirls a loaded gun with the safety off....Not that it's a good idea to try with the safety one. This moron is the reason I couldn't buy a toy gun that wasn't Neon Pink when I was a kid.
2002-03-20 10:07:02 AM  
Ah, a complete moron removes himself from the gene pool. It makes me glad that this kind of ineptitude won't find a niche in a child.
2002-03-20 10:09:27 AM  
Dammit, you're right. Taking it a little further it means I must sue Ronnie Reagan now. He was in old westerns, so he is to blame for the emotional anguish I suffered from reading this article. Added to which he is so insane that he couldn't defend himself in court! I would try this with Clint, but he'd kick my ass.
2002-03-20 10:11:18 AM  
ha ha, i knew Odietamo couldn't go more than 2 posts without mentioning his own personal boogie man 'liberals'. sure dogmatic liberals are annoying as fark, but jeebus talk about a one track mind.
2002-03-20 10:14:15 AM

Unfortunately a kid as stupid as this probably has 5 or 6 of his own kids living in mom's trailer by the time he's 17.
2002-03-20 10:15:39 AM  
one more gun owner down.
2002-03-20 10:16:52 AM  
I think the bullet maker should sue his head for getting in the way.
2002-03-20 10:18:17 AM  
If a kid calls is grandmamma mamma and his mamma Pam, he's going to jail! (or shooting himself in the face)
2002-03-20 10:20:41 AM  

We should be so lucky that most of the stars of those 50's westerns are now dead and in HELL! Praise Jesus!
