Isn't animal cruelty one of the signs you'll end up a mass murderer?

Let a bunch of cockroaches go in your house and tell him he can only kill those.

Probably shouldn't tell them about the triazicide I spread on my property the other day...

I've got one of those bug zapper lights. It's a round one you can hang on the porch. It's got a little UV bulb in it to attract bugs...and a electrified wire cage around it. So the bugs circle it and eventually fly into the death field and burst into flames.

I think I'll pull that out of the attic and put up again on the porch tonight. Then I'll listen to the sound track from the death star trench run from Star Wars.

Doing all kinds of weird shiat to bugs is just a phase that lots of boys go through.  He'll be fine.

We used to get 'june bugs' and tie a string around their legs...then you could fly them like a little airplane around your head in circles. Until their leg came off. Then you'd find another one.

So, since its summer, and people will have their windows open with screens that may not be the best...


If you have a fan going, and manage to catch a fly in your hand, send the bastard through. Though for some reason its frowned upon to find it really cool when you take its head clean off

Less concerning than my 10 year old daughter who can spot a bug from 100 feet and demands I squish them for her.

Seconded.

Now if he does it to mammals, particularly those his society views as pets, that's something else.

I killed bugs as a kid, now I let spiders roam my home with full immunity.

/Killed a rabbit with my bare hands in my yard though.

Oh yeah. My grandmother taught me that.  We created our own toys back then.

the standard answer to the hyper vigilant mom who asks the "my kid did ___, should i worry" question is

"Yes. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that you are raising the next ted bundy.  no matter how much love or affection you lavish on him he is now, and forever will be, completely broken. you are doomed to an existence where your son causes nothing but pain and misery in the lives of others.  Eventually he will be found out, your failures as a mother and human will be exposed leaving you ostracized from society, forced to live a life of total social isolation, interminable despair and loneliness.  Oh you don't think what he did is all that bad? THEN WHY THE HELL ARE YOU ASKING IF THERE IS PROBLEM?

People say that but I wonder just where the line is. Also does it hold up over time  and across cultures? Because if it really is as strong a correlation as pop culture says, all butchers and slaughterhouse workers should be Sweeney Todd, and whole societies should be comprised of serial killers.
