I think it was consoles that are the fault here.

I heard the gunman was pissed off he bought a PS3.

I guess he kind of made up for it.

Wow. Last I heard, it was borderline 21...this is just terrible. My prayers are with everyone involved.

Stuff from GAF:

Quote:
On CNN Headline News, they are interviewing a guy who said the shooter was looking for his girlfriend at the dorm, couldn't find her, went to the engineering building looking for her, couldn't find her, lined people up, and shot them execution style.

Why pray? If you want to help go do something that actually will, like give blood.

Thankfully, they just interviewed a guy from a nearby hospital who seemd genuinely optimistic that it would stop there. It's one of those things where he was likely to say that anyway, but his demeanor seemed like he really believed it. I hope he's right.

...Jeez...

Well, I CAN'T give blood, so that one's out.

There's lots of reasons for people to not be able to give blood, like being diseased, or on certain medications. Not to mention, uh, narcotics...

Oh, and too young. I think you have to be 18.

Still, it annoys me when people pray for the families of victims, but that might just be my satan loving atheism at work. Get off your ass and do something helpful for those in need if you feel like such a sterling individual.

Fun fact: This is nearly the exact kind of talk that got me banned from RPGaymer.

What good is giving blood? Doesn't seem like they really need it. If this was another 9/11, then yeah, sure. There's really nothing any of us who don't live in the area can do. Shit, there's really nothing that people who live there can do other than offer condolences/maybe money if they're not family/friends.

Whether prayer "actually will" help or not...that's a whole 'nother can of worms that probably should go in another thread Razz

There's a lot of injured people at VT right now, you think none of them is bleeding? Also, you think VT is the only place where people get shot? People get shot all the time, all over the world. No matter where you live I guarantee you they need blood. Doing something useful and proactive can save someone's life, where as offering prayers, whether they work or not (and let's not fool around, science has already proven that prayers don't work) is reactive and won't bring back the dead or help the wounded heal faster.
