T-Boy: stupid can't be taught.


But given enough guns, it can be curtailed.

There actually was a Darwin Award where somebody tried to do this with a clip. I can't even fathom the stupidity. Even being able to load the gun requires enough knowledge to tell him how it works.

skinink: Next up: where Swedish Meatballs and French Fries came from!


King Karl XII brought Kofta back from the Ottoman Empire. Kofta became köttbullar (meatballs). A lot of Swedes emigrated to North America in the 19th century and brought the recipe with them.

Dull Cow Eyes: BolloxReader: ////never knew a kid who thought they were "invincible," just kids who didn't care if they died


This.

Most likely their traits are several of the following:

1) high school sucks
2) no girlfriend
3) only sucky job prospects, even college degrees lead to a sucky job (if a job at all)
4) possible family problems.


5) They could have just been complete morons

skinink: "Russian Roulette is a lethal game of chance in which a player places a single round in a revolver, spins the cylinder, places the muzzle against his or her head and pulls the trigger. The game originated in Russia."
Well, that solves that mystery of where it was invented. Next up: where Swedish Meatballs and French Fries came from!


Not sure if trolling or stupid... French fries did not come from france.

Trance750: 5) They could have just been complete morons



True.

The conversation might have gone like this:

"Look there's like only 1 in 6 chance that you die....but that's like 5 out of 6 chance that you win. That's like 80% dude! When was the last time any of us got better than that on any test ? If you don't play, you're a PUSSY!"
 
2012-07-01 02:32:09 PM  
According TFA the game was done in one. Nice

Actually they did.

French fries are just Belgian fries executed in an improper fashion using poor technique.

Mr.Tangent: Article is missing important details. I need to know...

Did he win?


No, but he did make it to the finals.
 
2012-07-01 02:56:21 PM  

you are a puppet: make me some tea: GAT_00: make me some tea: It's not Russian Roulette unless it's loaded.

That's what I was thinking. Isn't Russian Roulette where you have a revolver with 5 loaded chambers and one empty?

The other way around. One chamber is loaded. A friend of a friend died that way when he was a teenager. Stupid kids.

I would love to see 2 people playing RR with one empty chamber though.

Player 1: Click. .... Sweet! K, your turn.
Player 2: ....


LOL

Heh. Only on fark would an off-hand joke result in insults and a discussion of the origin of fried f*cking potatoes.
Love this joint.

arentol: Wow. Must suck hardcore to be you. I never knew anyone who thought like this. Not even close. You would have to have no life at all and no prospect of a life to think like that.... And even then you would still have to also be an idiot to think you were to stupid to ever be able to make your life better.


The "I never thought I'd live to be 30" crowd crack me up because if that was so often the case, where the hell do Old People come from?

No matter how bad life seemed, I always tried to use it as an opportunity to think "Well, there's no situation so bad it can't get worse". At that point the absurdity of it comes thru.

Dialectic: The game originated in Russia.

See! Thanks to dumb-jack-asses who dumb shiat we learn something new!



Just to add to the fail, there actually there's no historical proof that the practice originated in Russia.

Russian roulette is actually fun as long as you don't point the gun at your own head. maybe a target or something.

Dull Cow Eyes: Even some really smart engineers (acquaintances) died from doing risky things in their 20s because they were jaded enough to put themselves in dangerous circumstances.

Is "biscuit" a new code word I haven't heard about?

Instead, how about something disgusting like having to swallow a live gold fish or worm without chewing?
 
2012-07-01 04:15:55 PM  
Hey kids, try it with a single die first. Realize how dumb you are for even entertaining the idea of playing russian roulette, and continue killing brain cells the slow and steady way with alcohol.

If you play Russian Roulette with a semi you're guaranteed to win every time. That's cheating.

Maybe he'd have stood a chance if he'd used a nail gun.
 
2012-07-01 06:49:25 PM  
At least he went out as a winner.
 
2012-07-01 06:55:28 PM  
If you're gonna' put a gun to your head, at least use an automatic with the chamber loaded. Preferably .30 caliber or larger.
/Have done it , backed out.

It can, however, cause tension on games night.

Uh, a reference to soggy/limp biscuit perhaps?

Would you not prefer to swallow them whole rather than chewing them? I hope to never find out, but I think I'd prefer have either of those go down whole.

If you chewed them up they would be dead. If you swallowed them whole, how long would it take for them to die, and how would your tummy feel?

No, Russian Roulette is where you play with a semiautomatic pistol.


You are all a little off

Russian roulette = 1 loaded chamber in the cylinder of a revolver
Turkish roulette= 5 loaded chambers in the cylinder of a revolver
Polish roulette= 1 bullet in the magazine of a auto or semi auto

According to investigators, Montgomery was the first of his friends to have a turn at the game. The gun discharged, and he received a gunshot wound to the head so what- did the other players not take their turn? pussys!.
 
2012-07-01 08:02:14 PM  
There are several kinds of "Russian Roulette." Not spinning the barrel is the more macho version in many people's view. Or, you can look at it as all predetermined by God's Plan, in which case it's the more pious version.

TFA does not say how many more of the kids went on playing. After all, they only had to remember to skip the first player's turns... he can catch up later.

Also acceptable:

Oh oh oh. The AA12 makes me wet myself with happiness. I was gonna post if it's Florida surely the kid was using a semi-auto, but ya'll beat me to it.

And here'e a clip of the Blessed AA-12 in action ..

Trust me, that biscuit is pretty disgusting.

bulldg4life: Anybody stupid enough to do this deserves to die. Drunken stupidity, peer pressure, both, neither....whatever the reason. If you are dumb enough to put a loaded gun against your temple and pull the trigger, then it is a fair assumption that you will not be providing anything of value for the extent of your life.


Very good friend of mine bottomed out about 10 years ago after a lifetime of epic alcoholism. He tried to shoot himself in the head but was too hammered, and just blew out one of his eyes.

Ten years later he has a doctorate in environmental science and is actively involved in researching and implementing effective ways to feed large urban areas. He's also no longer an alcoholic.

So assume what you will, but assuming that a person who does a stupid thing is incapable of anything but stupidity is, well, stupid.
