YouTube Kills (30 Jun, 2017)

The lure of YouTube fame can sometimes be fatal.

Poor old Pedro... maybe he should have paid attention in science class and learned something about the laws of physics as well as the methodology involved in "controlled testing" before he got his girlfriend to shoot him in the chest with a hand-cannon.

But how many others have/will died in their attempts to get their 15 minutes of fame by way of a viral YouTube video?

Who do we blame for this inane stupidity?

What could/can be done to prevent this kind of stupidity taking more lives -- or is it simply Darwinism in action?

What is really sad about that is that the girlfriend is highly likely to wind up in prison which leaves both children out on a limb.

interesting review on the desert eagle

the unsurprising thing is the work done by photoshop on all the stuff they released by themselves and the visually completely different person without the photoshop enhancements

i have noticed so many today photoshop the hell out of all public pics they post ( faceache etc ) to the point they look like completely different people
( 3s to 8s is common as is 120kg to 50kg apparent ) their self image is so screwy its no wonder they hate themselves ... with all the consequences of that

simple common sense also seems to be laking
who would not think to do a 1 shot test on a similar book before such a drastic action
life is tenuous when darwin is so eager to pounce on such people ... aka .. it was probably always going to be that way ... it was only the method that was undecided

Yes, I was surprised that the guy's girlfriend wasn't in hospital with two broken wrists after firing that gun -- she looks to be a slight little thing and those things kick like a mule.

It is a sad state of American society where everyone has access to guns and feel the need to have them. The wannabe famous people, the reluctance of any form of gun control . . . . .

Love it! I notice the departed leaves behind his 19 year old girlfriend facing a manslaughter charge. So not only didn't he think about his welfare, he didn't think about hers either. Or his children's. Hmm, a 19 year old girlfriend and a 3 year old son... looks like he didn't think about a lot of things... This perfectly demonstrates one of the problems with natural selection, its only about your reproductive ability. Btw Bruce, I don't think stupidity is mutually exclusive with climate change or global thermonuclear war, I think they go hand in hand.

A .5 is a powerful handgun designed to penetrate armour. It has more grunt than a herd of pigs.

There is no cure for stupid!
