It's not Russian Roulette unless it's loaded.

Honest Bender: At least do this with a cap gun or something... blanks... I don't know. Blanks point blank would probably still hurt pretty bad, loud bang... All the fun, none of the death.


May want to go ask Brandon Lee about that blank idea of yours

starlost: the cops will probably go easy on whoever owned the gun but even a cheap gun lock probably would have deterred these kids were literally too stupid to be allowed to pollute our gene pool. charge the owner with something like 100 hours of community service at least reward the owner for his small part in bettering us as a species.



FTFY

I do forensic autopsies all day, and it is surprising the number of jackasses that do this. There are no limits to stupid. None.

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.

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!"

BolloxReader: Young people don't do stupid stuff like this because they think they are invincible. They do stupid stuff like this because they don't think they'll live much longer. As the song goes, "Only the good die young." Look at the examples. James Dean. Brandon Lee. Heath Ledger. Jimi Hendrix. Janice Joplin. Even the crap they make us read in school gives you a sense of inevitability. What's the difference between a Shakespearean comedy and a tragedy? Not everyone dies in a comedy. Before high school I remember my reader in 5th grade being full of nothing but kids watching their parents or siblings die slowly, except for one vivid story describing a man trekking across the frozen wastes of Canada and slowly starving to death after a plane crash.

/all my friends thought they'd be dead by age 30
//I thought anaphylactic shock would get me if nothing else did
///never actively did anything like this though, just didn't take good care of my body
////never knew a kid who thought they were "invincible," just kids who didn't care if they died


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.

kingoomieiii: Wasn't there a group of dumb assholes who tried to play Russian Roulette with a magazine-loaded handgun? "Oh, guys, it's totally safe, there's a bullet missing!"


That's Polish Roulette.

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


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.

You might want to go read up on that. It wasn't the blank that killed him. It was the fragment of real bullet in the barrel that did it.


Ask Jon-Erik Hexum about whether a blank can kill you.

shanrick: What was going through his mind?


www.moviespad.com

I like to think the last thing that went through his head, before that bullet anyways was to wonder how the hell Andy Dufresne got the best of him.

You're reading this in Morgan Freemans voice.

Mood_For_Trouble: Jon Erik Hexum nods in approval.


Except he wasn't playing Russian Roulette, he though that a blank round would just make a nice bang and that was it.

mongbiohazard: I don't know man... we did some dumb shiat too, but that almost seems a little too dumb to be believable to me to happen more than extremely rarely.



I used to believe the same.

But after spending significant time in Florida, I don't know what would be surprising anymore for "too dumb to only rarely happen." All options are on the table.


/this shooting happened near Tampa's burbs

theorellior: I'm kinda surprised that there are already Farkers mentioning that they knew someone who died playing Russian Roulette. Is youthful dumbfarkery really that widespread?


theorellior: Actually, never mind, I was once a 17-year-old boy. While I was a little more circumspect than my peers, I still had an assload of dumbfarkery to go around.



I don't know man... we did some dumb shiat too, but that almost seems a little too dumb to be believable to me to happen more than extremely rarely. I mean REALLY?!?! What's the game plan there?

"I know a great game! Let's play 'see who fatally shoots their brains out first!' Afterwards we can go get ice cream... after we're done cleaning up the corpse of one of us. Who will now be dead. And we'll have to explain that to the authorities. And their mom. Because it's not like we can just play that off or pretend it didn't happen. One of us will have their blood and brains splattered on one of these walls. I'll go first!"

I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm all for the Darwinian selection of teenagers who are dumb enough to play that as a party game doing it... it just seems implausible to me that there'd be too many people actually doing it since it's so dumber than dumb that even pretty much any dumb teenager would think you were an idiot for suggesting it.

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: ....


Odds are the same for the second person... Remember the "spin the cylinder" part?

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.
