Taiwanese student in USA accused of plotting school massacre


#703

My faith in humanity just went down another notch. As if it wasn’t low enough already. This reminds me of one of those comic backstories were you see how somebody turned into a supervillain.

You can’t make this shit up:


#704

Not yet anyway…give him a few months and we’ll see what he starts preaching to followers. Typical TW government just sits back and watches Taiwan society burn (Tsai/Nero)!


#705

Nah, kid is totally normal basically. He’s jerking around online like every other rich-ass teenager here. Nothing is going to burn except the panic.


#706

What a bunch of fucking idiots. Seeking life advice from a douchebag like that.


#707

Not so fast. He may have special insight into the question of whether black tea is better than milk tea, or whether hot and sour soup is better than cream of corn.


#708

In the words of Al Murray: this country’s in so much fucking trouble.


#709

The media is building him up. I would not be surprise dif those commenters were poaid by his parents. Remove the stench of whatever happened in the US, surround him by the perfume of adoration…

I mean, who would actually make such an innane comment as black or milk tea? This society is vapid but that is not a cool issue to discuss. It seems more like framed pre arranged questions to make traffic.

Why is this surprising?

He, his family, and all of their reputations have been torn down by social media. How is it in any way surprising that they would choose to rebuild their reputations using the same channel?


#711

If he is in, no problem. But if the parents are blindsiding him, as overprotective as they are, then we will have a bigger problem down the line.

And you cannot tame or use the media. It is the proverbial scorpion that will sting anyone anytime as it is in his nature.


#712

On the bright side, the more time he spends in front of his computer, the less time he spends wandering the streets looking for small animals to torture.


#713

It’s social media. It is only occasionally related to real life.

I swear, Spielberg is beginning to look like a prophet with Minority Report.


#714

That’s Philip K. Dick you cretinous horse-person. :sunglasses:


#715

He still has time to “create” stuff, trinkets, machinery…


#716

Yes. I’m thinking his next invention will be a cross of a flamethrower and a Roman candle…it’ll fire exploding fireballs.


#717

Funny his firts one out was a wall climber. Maybe he is thinking about what he needs to escape prision.


#718

True enough, but I’m thinking that a number approaching zero Taiwanese and maybe a dozen expats know who Philip K. Dick was. Maybe.


#719

I swear this guy will start a rap career lol. Like “yeah I’m the teflon don. These charges don’t stick! Got AKs on my wall, ARs on the floor!l


#720

That could just be your perception.


#721

Kid jokes about prision, says he had a blast. “Many people protected me”. No wonder he is so cocky now. Learning experience was wasted.

Meanwhile Apple`s printed version has the headline of Sun: 18 and still single. Gee, what a catch.


#722

Some jokes just don’t fly.
