I should try that next time Jehova's ring my door bell... However, hero or not which is actually point of view, I cannot accept the fact his actions killed innocent person. Who cares if he would have just killed himself. His actions cost an innocent life. That cannot be defended or denied.
If seeing is believing, how can blind person believe in anything?
Maturity is just not experience in life but also ability to make compromises.

I dont argue with idiots, so I wont even grace that stupid statement with an answer.
me thinks you tried to find some evidence to dispute that, and realized there isnt any. lacking a leg to stand on, this is your next option.
And of course I have already said that I wont discuss off topic things in this topic that are far better suited to already existing topics where such matters have already been discussed greatly.
and yet it was you who brought into the discussion the notion that the US is so vastly different in terms of psyche that we're inherently more violent(or some other bullshit.). I am simply disputing that notion. if you want to stay on topic, do so.

I did read some of stack's rants, and they aren't exactly paranoid schizo crazy by a long shot.

It is ashame he snapped, and had no resolve before then. to me? that is the heroism, it snapped a person who wasn't even crazy...and there are may reasons to start a thread about it, and talk. he got what he wanted. he got attention.

It is as irritable as forced to being in the same boat with homosexuality, as a straight man homophobe..there will be primitive action eventually.

The problems are that contrasted...

The military. that is a different subject. right?

Never call a vet a hero, it is a paperwork game. A real hero is eyes ahead, years ahead...this guy in the building got killed like a sitting duck...and get that f**ing earring out of the damn ear. I suppose that is not a problem for mr.cool, the ultimate player.

Dont you have to double the awake time if your at the front, and half it if your at the back.? Personally I could never sleep in a church, probably the intense burning sensation I get when I first enter the church, 5-minutes at the most before I start smoking, flames soon after :twisted:
