I'm gonna call this one of those situations. There is no argument on Earth I can think of that would convince me to fire a weapon at someone I don't really want dead. I don't care how much they ask, I don't care what precautions they claim to have taken or whatever reason they give for why there's no actual risk of injury - no. The answer is no. Screw your YouTube channel.
You're not a teenager anymore either. Not that being a teenager excuses such things but they are more susceptible to pressure/influence.

I was a teenager once, many eons ago, and I never once thought it would be a great idea to point a loaded weapon at someone and squeeze the trigger, no matter what "precautions" were taken!

Yes, teenagers can be idiots, but this takes a special kind of stupid.

Yep. I was a dumb-ass, but even my teenage self would have WTF'd this. She fired from ONE FOOT AWAY! And there were 30 onlookers, according to the article. Why did nobody scream "NO NO NO, DO NOT DO THAT!" Why didn't somebody just bullrush her and get the gun?

The question here is why didn't either of them think to look online for ballistics info that would have told them beyond any shadow of all doubt it would kill him at point blank range?

Frankly, when I was their age, the thought to look up that sort of info would never have occurred to me but someone would have known and spoke up. That would have been good enough for me to refuse.

Something isn't right with this story, yet, at this time, I don't feel she wanted to kill him. Still, she is likely to face negligent homicide charges among several other possibilities. She would be better off plea bargaining.

Oh, to be young and dumb again. No thanks. Not that young anyway.

For those not in the know, this woman didn't just pick up some random dinky gun, this was a Desert Eagle .50 caliber freaking hand cannon. It fires a heavy slug a half-inch across and kicks like Grandma's worst tempered mule. This is what happens when you fire one:



That's not special effects --

How in the living hell someone looks at that weapon, then picks it up -- it's very big and heavy, and so evil looking they use it all the time in movies -- and still thinks, "Yeah, this should work" is ----- well, JFC, some people should just never watch TV.

FWIW, I was just in Twitter directly watching this incident go down. I'm not going to defend that tweet or Notch, because he's said some equally awful things in the past that I'm not aware he ever apologized for; but before he deleted that tweet, a gay pride day supporter explained the actual point of Gay Pride Day - of which Notch was apparently ignorant - and Notch seemed to change his mind and apologized for that tweet.

I saw the follow up Tweet too. He didn't really apologize. He said that it was a "fair point". Which I don't think is enough of an apology for saying that people should be shot because of his ignorance (which I am dubious about), re: the point of Pride. He then promptly went on to attack others who had the "audacity" to call him out, so I don't think that atoning for what he said is really where his head and heart are.

Someone grumpily saying "fair point", and then changing their behavior is more of an apology than saying sorry, then making no changes at all.

I'm not going to lie, that little imp of the perverse that my inner little evil bastard usually hides behind let out a snicker when I read about this. Then I felt really guilty.

Then I snickered again. That's some spectacular stupid they had going on for fucking youtube views.

400 ppm. If I'm not too cognitively impaired already, I do believe we're either rapidly approaching or just crossing that level.

It explains a lot.

I think there's too many of us on this planet. If we cut the number of people by a significant amount, it would greatly reduce the amount of CO2 being released into the atmosphere.

We'll start with the people trying to snort chocolate.

A woman in eastern Pennsylvania who killed her boyfriend by shooting him in the head has told police that he asked her to kill him because he felt trapped in some kind of doomsday/alien cult he belonged to.

Quote:
Barbara H. Rogers told police her boyfriend, Steven Mineo, asked her to kill him, said Lt. Steven Williams of the Pocono Mountain Regional Police Department.

“Apparently they belong to a cult,” Williams said, relaying what Rogers told authorities. “He was upset with members of the cult, felt he was being harassed, and he was frustrated. And he asked his girlfriend to kill him. And she did.”

The organization the lieutenant referenced is headed by a person known as Sherry Shriner according to its website, which includes commentary on what the group calls a “new-age alien agenda” and emphasizes apocalyptic biblical benchmarks from the Book of Revelation.

“The defendant related that she and the victim are members of a cult headed by a woman named ‘Sherry Shriner,” the complaint said. “Recently they became upset with Shriner. The victim believed contrary to her appearance, Shriner was actually ‘reptilian.’ The defendant did admit there were tensions between the couple over issues with the cult.”

An email sent to an address listed on the website was not immediately returned Saturday.

I don't think this is newsworthy enough in the States to deserve it's own thread, but it's certainly making headlines here.

Australian woman shot dead by Minneapolis police.

Quote:
Her stepson Zach Damond, 22, said she called police after hearing a noise in the alleyway near their house in the suburb of Fulton.

"At one point an officer fired their weapon, fatally striking a woman," the police department said.

"Officers were dispatched. When officers responded, an officer-involved shooting occurred, which resulted in one adult female victim who is deceased and which has prompted our callout to the BCA [Bureau of Criminal Apprehension].
