    Well if EVER an attack jumped the shark for the Moopy it's this one.

    Twinned with my home town. That's about as related as terror attacks have gotten to me so far.

    Didn't someone at your work die in Manchester or have I made that up?

    Yeah it's true, although I work for a big company and she was in a different city office.

    I must admit I'd forgotten all about that.

    I tell you what Islamic State get some pretty sweet exchange schemes. London, Paris, Stockholm, Berlin, Toronto, New York, Barcelona, Nice, Manchester, Brussels...

    Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and Denmark next please. I wonder if they'll ever start on Eastern Europe or South America.

    Yeah but Al-Q and ISIS are different (I do remember the often forgotten, yet utterly horrific Madrid bombings). Unless they get together like McFly and Busted.

    Although I'm utterly aware Barcelona is contentiously in Spain, I never think of it as so.

    There was a lot of debate on Twitter about whether Armenians qualify as white.

    It's possibly a hoax, but there's a rumour going around that he did it because he's an incel :zombie:

    An 'involuntary celibate' - men who can't get laid and blame women for it, often finding like-minded people online to get bitter with. They usually hang out on 4chan and other dark corners of the internet - Elliot Rodger was an incel, and some of them see him as a hero for what he did :(

    It seems the incel thing isn't a hoax which is absolutely chilling.

    I'm not sure if it's wrong to hope that he faces exactly the opposite problem in prison.

    Not wrong at all. I hope he has an arse like a window cleaner's bucket within the week.

    This Twitter thread is a great summary of what incels are and how they fit into the larger alt-right/extremist landscape:

    If they’re so desperate, why don’t they save up for a prostitute?

    These sunlight starved would-be date rapists aren't able to talk to women at the best of times, they're not exactly going to ask their mom if she can pick them up a HOOKER and some Monster energy drink on their next trip to TARGET.

    Because their whole thing is how women are withholding their male God-given, Darwin-proven RIGHT to sex whenever they want it. Being asked to pay for it is just evidence of how the FEMINAZIS ARE CONTROLLING THE WORLD.

    Or: they're all totally batshit and it's not really about the sex.

    It makes you wonder what the fuck the parents were up to raising these boys. How can you create something so rancid?

    My friend was at that exact Strasbourg Christmas market an hour before the shooting. I messaged her about it when the news broke and she had no idea. She has a Twitter friendship with JK Rowling who suggested she go to a Christmas market in Strasbourg so JK Rowling nearly killed by friend.

    Possibly the worst thing JK Rowling has done on twitter since she announced Hermione was a centrist pansexual.
