We do crazy better than any other country on earth

The teen spray-painted the arm white and planted it in a flower pot, and then took his mother’s head to a police station, where he turned himself in, police said.

I hope my wife and I raise our children to deal with stress through more healthy methods. If you suddenly stop hearing from me…we failed.

  1. It reads like poetry. It’s the beginning, middle and end of a very deep and tragic story that’s stranger than fiction could ever be. An act so horrific that it sounds more like a legend than clipping from a newspaper article. It draws you in and repulses you at the same time, but either way it sticks in your mind. It’s the kind of thing that makes you want to crack a joke in self-defense.

    I have to wonder how this kid’s problems could have been overlooked. I doubt this was the first clue that something was really, really wrong with him. Just a hunch, but you probably work up to creating abstract organic art with your murdered mother’s body parts.

  2. Ummm… odd… creepy…
    Another reason no to fill the world with more kids.
    I wonder where the his dad is and how his younger brother is doing.
    Rich, you read WEIRD stuff. (Not to mention the food you have posted on here, I do not, and do not want to know what some of that stuff is. (Ah sea-food (I think). The only problem with me actually living in Japan….sigh.))
