Columbine. Let's talk about it. We talked about it awhile back at school. The words "Trench Coat Mafia" randomly decided to pop into my head today, so I decided to read the Wikipedia article on the 2 shooters. So now I'm making a thread about it because I feel this event is still relevant to society. How do you feel about the event? About the shooters? Do think it was the video games/music that had the biggest effect on them? Etc.
Discuss.

They were just mentally disturbed kids, at least, that's what I think.
"You have brains in your head,
You have feet in your shoes,
You can steer yourself,
any direction you choose,
You're on your own,
And you know what you know,
And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go."

- Dr. Seuss

The games maybe had some influence on them, but I'm sure that they were pretty mentally disturbed. The whole event was just awful. You're just sitting in class one day and someone busts into the classroom and starts shooting. I can't imagine the amount of fear they must have felt.

You can still play the levels that one of the kids designed for whatever game they were into...Doom or Wolfenstein or something.

I'm pretty sure they didn't go into any class rooms.

Library and Cafeteria were the main ones. I'm pretty sure they at least fired into some rooms.

No music. No video games. Teenagers are cunts. Most can handle it without killing. These two couldn't. If they didn't know each other this probably wouldn't have happened. They were marginalized by their peers. They fed off of each others fantasies. They acted out their fantasy to prove themselves to each other. But bottom line is teenagers are cunts.

I think in general, people are just cunts. They just find different ways to go about it.

I think that video games played a part in conditioning them to be desensitized to killing, but I definitely think that their own mentalities and actions are, of course, the biggest factor.

Terrible event. There really is no other way to view it :/

it was obviously Marilyn Manson's fault.

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

If videogames and heavy metal made everyone insane murderers, there would be a lot more insane murderers. They were a just couple of messed up kids who were angry at the world, and heavy metal has some angry and dark vibes they could relate to.

I blame the music. Them devil worshiping cunt goats.
To be vulnerable is needed most of all, if you intend to truly fall apart.

Also, next part of the discussion, these guys also thought of themselves as gods. More about that then.

Only to each other. They participated in a series of self supporting aggrandizement. They were ultimately terrified of disappointing each other.

The term "aggrandize" has been added to Blake's vocabulary for future use.
