Massacre at Virginia Tech

Now the story is in top headlines, so I will not repost it here.

What do you think about this tragedy, how such things can be prevented?

“A note believed to have been written by Cho was found in his dorm room that railed against “rich kids,” “debauchery” and “deceitful charlatans” on campus, the Chicago Tribune said.” (taken from tiscali news today)

Well, I remember getting pretty stressed at Uni too :wink: There are some assholes… You know what one cheeky student said to me? “I’ve invested my student loan, so that I can buy a house, not like you people who piss it away” It took sooooo much self control not to throttle him while I explained that I had “pissed away” my student loan on, like, rent and food :laughing: And the girls I lived with were like rabbits… :astonished:

I don’t know what you can do to stop assholes existing, or prevent social/financial inequalities :frowning: you just have to live with it, I guess. At the end of the day, the people who work hard at college will have better jobs and more money in the end. In an ideal world :wink:

Did anyone see Michael Moore’s documentary about the Columbine Massacre, a few years ago? It was very interesting 8) there seems to be quite a gun culture over there…

Could be a provocation, to get one more reason to invade Iran.

in what way, were they eating a lot or having a lot of sex? :smiley:

I don’t see any connection can you explain?

I was expecting than some Iranian student will be put in trial for this.
I heard it was a Chinese one, so it’s more like a reason to invade China :slight_smile:

:laughing: They ate hardly anything, and had sex with… everyone… :astonished: It got really annoying seeing strange men every day over breakfast :confused: and I couldn’t leave anything valuable (or edible) in a shared area of the flat :laughing:

I found it particularly offensive because they (and my doctor, and my parents) expected me to live like this too :confused1: Before going to university, everybody had to be vaccinated against / have tests for diseases which are associated with sexual promiscuity :frowning: I don’t like needles :crybaby: They wouldn’t believe I’m a good girl :angel12:

I’m stressed just thinking about it! :laughing9:

I don’t think anyone with nukes is going to get invaded :laughing6:

Reasonable point, let’s distribute the nukes equally among all the countries 8)

:laughing: I think Iran would be in favour of that… :smiley:

It’s worth noting that the USA (and UK) invaded an “Axis of Evil” country that didn’t have weapons of mass destruction in the end… But they left North Korea well alone.

In fact, they got out of Iraq fairly quickly, back when they were gassing Kurds and building the super-gun in the 90s :unamused:

That’s reminded me: did you ever see “Holidays in the Axis of Evil?” It was made like a travel show, but visiting all the places blacklisted by the US government :laughing: The Cuban guide thought it was quite funny being on the Axis of Evil.

You know, I read somewhere that loads of nukes got “lost” after the Cold War ended…
