WHY STOP AT ONE?
just a little observation of late.. but you really gotta pity the poor demented fool who only murders ONE person, gets caught, and then thrown in jail for 10-20 years or executed.. they probably had really good reasons too - perhaps their wife or husband just drove 'em screaming over the edge of sanity with the constant nagging.. perhaps it wuz the one motorist tailgating for the last 100km's that flipped their switch.. that annoying mother-in-law?.. hell, we've all wanted to kill SOMEONE for all manner of reasons.. maybe a political assassination attempt or 2..
but of course (and rightfully so) society generally frowns upon this kinda thing.. if you kill ONE person you're right royally screwed.. quite possibly locked up for life if you did a good enough job making it all arty n shit.. and sure as hell don't try that shit in Texas or California USA, coz then you'd be snuffed just as quick as you'd snuffed them.. good 'ol eye for an eye..
but y'see.. that's the problem right there.. why did they stop at ONE?
consider Abu Bakar Bashir.. the mastermind behind the Bali Bombings, kills over 200 people.. and he only gets 30 months in jail for it.. which, if you do the maths (and mine is probably utter shite on a hungover saturday arvo) yer looking at maybe 2-3 days jailterm per person.. so, really.. the odds are in ya favour if you kill 100's of people instead of just ONE..
and hey.. you could avoid prison entirely if you kill even MORE people.. especially if you murder by proxy.. cigarette companies, handgun manufacturers, all manner of toxic chemical plants conveniently situated near childcare centres.. you could push over 100,000 lemmings screaming off a proverbially cliff.. and not even raise an eyebrow.. hey, 99% of all multinational CEO's are probably responsible for the death of millions.. more than the combined total of jews who died just because Adolf Hitler didn't like those funky black hats with the sideburn's thing.. and seriously, have you seen ANY CEO take the fall for it?
so.. the lesson is simple..
murder ONE person.. you're a fucking idiot.. and you'll DIE for your sins..
murder 10-20 people.. you'll quite possibly die for your sins.. on the otherhand.. you'll be an urban legend.. you'll get book deals, movies, t-shirts with ya face on it.. and people will love ya for it.. aaah, gotta love them nutty serial killers aye?
murder 200-300 people.. and you'll most likely never get convicted.. spending every opportunity to smile at the camera's all maniacal n shit.. coz, regardless of whether they find you guilty or not.. your thousands of screaming fans will ensure you never actually see a the inside of a jail cell..
murder 200,000 to 300,000 people.. fuckit.. even millions of 'em.. and people wont even remember your name..
so, apparently.. the more people you kill.. the less people give a shit.. cool aye?
yeah.. just a thought.. but if you ever take the crazy decision to kill someone.. think big.. don't stop at one.. the research shows.. odds are in ya favour..
(note: this blog post wont be used in your defense in a court of law, just in case your were idiotically misguided enough to follow it as gospel.. seriously.. are ya fucking insane?)
