  1. Hello


    Secret service talks about what causes these guys go crazy and how it generally has little or nothing to do with any kind of political motivation, it includes some interviews with some of the guys who were friends with him. The piece somewhat puts together the pieces on his life in the years leading up to the shooting.

    They talk about how the movie "waking life" was his favourite movie, i remember watching the movie on mushrooms about 10 years ago when it first came out. :D

    That is good. Fascinating how nihilism was mentioned; clearly he was not nihilistic enough. Did existential anxiety drive him to insanity, or did insanity give him existential anxiety?

    what's with you today? are you lying on a therapy couch with your Freud glasses on or something? did you watch too much Frasier this weekend?
  4. Hello


    I could go to wikipedia, and try to figure out the answer to that, but i dont think it would do your question any justice. :D
  5. Is this the first time you have ever heard about mental illness or are you just high?

    Lol, I'll have to look at my other replies today to see what you mean. But, yes, I have been reading in the existential psychoanalytic, and straight existential lines lately. : )
  7. Funny how it a was all about politics when they thought he was a tea bagger. Now that we know he is just your typical Bush hater we can say with authority that politics don't matter.
  8. Precisely...

  9. How many conservatives here are really surprised that the left will go to any extreme and any lame excuse to silence their detractors at every opportunity?

    I have no doubt if not for their limited power the American left would be every bit as vicious as former socialist utopias (nazi germany, soviet union, red china).
  10. +1
