    What's the over/under of this occurring? I'd say it's pretty likely for at least one such mass shooting to occur, given the crossover of the loony gun nuts who commit these mass shootings and the lonely white male nerds who feel neglected by society. Especially given the fact that, according to the trailers, the two main characters are a woman and a black man, which has been enough for the aforementioned demographic crossover to succumb to full on rage onine.

    The two main characters in Driving Miss Daisy were a white woman and a black man. :jayzus:

    does the movie have an abortion by a lesbian couple in it? I would give even odds if it did.

    Some people would love it if that happened. They were so disappointed that the San Bernardino shooters weren't angry white Christian men.

    It does not seem to be a more likely target than any where else.

    I feel sorry for the shooter who tried. Faced with a bunch of angry Warsies, desperately trying to deflect bullets with their toy lightsabers, they would doubtlessly fall over laughing until the Force was with them. The Police Force.

    Or someone trying to stop the bullets with the force by putting their hand in front of them.

    The odds are in your favor. This a huge release nationwide, and there are a lot of unhinged individuals with knives, guns, and chainsaws out there. I almost expect to hear something in tomorrow's morning news. Personally, I'll be watching this movie over the weekend at a morning matinee. Violent people tend to prefer crowds.

    Did you know that chainsaws originally started out as surgical instruments?

    It's playing here on just about every screen, and the theaters are open 24/7 through Sunday. By selecting a smaller screen/non 3D option, I'll probably be safe.

    IMO the only safe option for viewing the new Star Wars movie is non-3D on Sunday around 9:00 am. The gun nuts are most likely to have already struck by then, or else receiving their instructions at that time (because they believe in a make believe Iron Age deity instructing them that there was no far away galaxy in existence prior to Genesis). Also, because 3-D sucks.

    Please, everyone, stay safe. And make sure you pack heat when going to your viewing of Star Wars because I'm sure that will help.

    Sunday morning is the worst time to see it. Did you learn anything from Ben Affleck, Josh Hartnett, and Kate Beckinsdale's movie when their love triangle got attacked by Japanese Zeros? That happened on Sunday, near dawn.

    No, because none of us were losers that actually paid to watch Pearl Harbor. :brood:

    Who was angry? Quit your lying. No one was angry that it was muslims instead of white men. That is just you projecting your slimy and creepy thought process onto everyone else.

    Who was disappointed?

    I mean, no one expected the DC snipers from the early 2000s to be black. Angry White Boyz have an image problem that needs fixing, and the one act of legitimate foreign terrorism that overlapped into Mentally Disturbed White Boy territory isn't gonna fix that.

    Sorry, not sorry. :shrug:

    My cousin for one, as well as several other leftist FB friends who posted "breaking news" about the San Bernardino shooter being an angry white guy the moment his dating photo was leaked (which kinda sorta made him look like he might be white, if that's what you wanted to see) but quickly deleted those posts when more information came out and they realized the facts clearly didn't match their imaginations.

    Yeah, we here on plant earth were not doing any of those things. You need to differentiate between the world in your head and what actually happened. I am not sure why you would think such creepy thoughts, but that is the voices in your head.

    Oh, and there is this quote function you might want to use. You don't want to end up like @BeamMe babbling on about something no one cares about.

    Nope, no voices in my head. The posts definitely happened.

    Why are you being so defensive about this? :chris: Are you one of those guys who embarrassed himself with premature vituperations about angry white guys?

    I was told it would be white Christians by the biggest Bernie Supporter I know (who is terrible at life).

    That was one of the facts I threw at my students out of the blue that they found impossible to believe. Even when I pulled up a picture of an early chainsaw.

    Gawker, Jezebel, Huffintonpost

    ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC

    Washington Post, New York Times, Los Angeles Times

    I mean seriously.... how could you even ask that question?

    When word broke out that the shooters were "white" you could literally see the effort of the newscasters to not jump out of their seats and celebrate. And then they were salivating over the militias doing the shooting.

    Strange. I never saw a single suggestion that the shooters were white.

    Probably because you were drinking beer and getting drunk.

    It was reported widely that the shooters according to the survivors were white.

    Strange. I saw nothing but that. And then when it was discovered they weren't, a desperate attempt to hide the actual ethnicity of the shooters. It was very funny. :)

    Is anything in the article not true? And where does it suggest that whites were the shooters? It's an article about how San Bernadino is a shitty place. Yes, it is.
    I may have missed it, but I don't see the word white anywhere in that article, at least not regarding the shooters. Or is 3 masked gunmen code for three white gunmen? I missed that memo.
