Darwin reaches out from the grave

22-year-old man points gun at head and pulls trigger to demonstrate that it’s unloaded. It wasn’t. Of course it’s a horrible tragedy: the kid’s friends are devastated, he himself was cut up about it, but I’m annoyed at him for adding to the “gun death” statistics. Stupid acts can have fatal consequences and there’s no pulling back a bullet. Teach your kids how to safely handle a gun. While you’re at it, teach them to swim – they’re five times more likely to drown than be shot accidentally.

    Isn’t it strange and sad that someone who went to West Point didn’t learn the number one rule when handling a firearm- to check to see if it is loaded?

    • I read that but I decided it must be West Point High School. I was taught gun safety by my father, former military but not military academy, and there’s no way anyone taught in that method would ever do what this poor idiot did.

  2. The infantry training every cadet receives at West Point includes small arms training. There’s a pistol range up there and they field a very competitive pistol team. Amazing.

    Dude –
    Well this was a totally depressing story. So let’s go out and cheer up!! OK?
    You want to go to the Hotel J? Promise not to piss on the floor? I DON’T!!
    Have you been there Dude? What is the appropriate attire? Silk pale blue leisure suits and gold medallions? Platform shoes? Can’t go wrong with those, right? Nehru Jackets? Those are always in style.

    Anyhows, is it a Nanny place or a MILF place? You need to know that so you use the appropriate pick up line. If it is a Nanny place, which is my preferred target zone, you talk about their fun bags. They are proud of them, as they are still perky and cute. Ask her if they are real or bolt on’s. No matter what she says, say you don’t believe her, and tell her you have to check for yourself.

    MILF’s require a bit more strategery. They have been around the block, and understand the game. They are battle tested. But they are horny as hell, and if you screw up, you still have a couple of runs at the bun. So you should focus on them. You loser.

    Ask if you can buy her a drink. She will order something stupid, like a Dirty Martini, to show you she has “class”, and to check out your wallet, but now you know you have a bimbo. MILF Heaven Dude!! Order her another one as soon as you can, and slip her the roofie. Don’t worry, she is expecting it, so you don’t think she is easy.

    What you do next is up to you. Do they still have HOJO rooms upstairs? If not, there is always the car. Or the lobby. If you can piss in it, I assume you can bang in it. Right?

    I will meet you at the bar at 9:00 P.M. Wear red pumps so I know it’s you.
    Your Pal,

    This is the kind of sad story that makes one wonder whether Karma really does rule our lives.
