I knew it! We should all ban Dance Dance Revolution! It's a hopping simulation that exercises your thighs, legs, feet, and heart and prepares your stamina so that when you need to run after killing lots of people, you'll be able to escape without losing much breath!

Well, none of them have their fingers on the trigger. Guy has poor taste in firearms all around, though. I doubt he actually uses any of those.


This. My first thought when I saw those kids was "good trigger discipline." (Was that wrong?)

Ambivalence: I know I shouldn't, but I LOLed.

What an odd game for a mass murderer of children to be obsessed over.


Did you ever think maybe that was on purpose?  Maybe he was sick of hearing all the nonsense on TV about violent video games causing kids to behave violently.  Maybe he decided he was going to add a seemingly innocuous game to the list of things crazed shooters liked doing.

Then again, maybe he started out perfectly sane, and DDR broke his mind.

If this had been 30 years ago I would have said the game was Atari's ET-The Extraterrestrial.

That pointlessness of that game was enough to drive anyone to commit mass murder.

Admittedly, that did make me homicidal at one point.

Then there were the flashbacks during "Kerbal Space Program: The Movie", or as it was released in America, "Gravity".

If he just bought the game? Maybe. But he spent hours and hours playing it, up to 10 hours at a time. That's some dedication if he meant to use it as a diversion.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaw, I remember the days when Dennis' Place For Games was still around in Chicago, and I would try to play DDR ridiculously drunk after work, narrowly missing those back bars and several other things. Good times good times.

Look at how famous he is now.

You're oggling over every detail of his life. His name is all over the news, the internet. Everyone knows his face. They want to know how and what he ate, what he did every day. every single detail of his life is now being picked over and shown to the entire world.

You made him famous. More famous then a movie star. More famous then Jay Leno. More famous then Carson Daily.  More famous then Mr. Rodgers.

And all it took to get him all this fame... was to kill a few people.

Murder sprees are the new way to be famous in America.

No wonder they keep happening.

Is that chart not correct? All I know about guns is from Google image search. But I also know Colt & Bushmaster are different brands, so I can look down my nose at Them.

I would love a modern remake. I would prefer them to be turn based though.

The media coverage of them sure is new.

Simply someone THINKING there might be a gun somewhere puts all the news stations on DefCon 1 and they talk about it all farking day long.

So the take away from this report is that Lanza was a frustrated dancer and snapped. This could've all be avoided had he befriended a black person.

Do we have any pictures of Lee Harvy Oswald's bedroom?

Did we list his hobbies, his eating habits? What he read? What movie theaters he went to? Did we hold any of these things up we did know on a 24 hour news network with a photo of him while pundits yammered on and on about the children?

Nope! We mourned the loss of the dead.

And his mother thought it would be a good idea to give him free access to guns and teach him how to use them. And what is even more crazy, there are people that will defend his right to be able to have access to guns, even knowing this, just to make a political point.

I don't get it. I mean I get the joke of the picture where everything on the AR-15 is described in a hugely exaggerated manner, but identifying a .223 Bushmaster as an AR-15 variant is correct.
