I do find it interesting, though, that he was an engineer (those apparently being more susceptible to becoming terrorists (http://www.slate.com/id/2240157/)
Wow. I aspire to BE an electrical engineer. This makes me feel just GREAT! :dozey:
In all seriousness, though, the mindset of people who like/aspire to be engineers varies quite a bit. Based upon my own personal experience. I mean, sure, any one of them could be bat-**** crazy, but TBH so could anyone else. It's the person and not the field.
Sure, engineering is an attractive thing b/c of the skills involved and because of what ends it can be used for. Especially to people who might use it maliciously.
I just hope there aren't morons who decide that engineering is the cause of this lunacy.
My attitude about people like him is that they should just remove themselves and not bother anyone else.
Fut-o-rama suicide booth? Anyone?
Read all about it, "IRS Worker's Widow Sues Moron's Widow." (http://www.statesman.com/news/local/irs-workers-widow-sues-pilots-wife-273334.html
Ah great, here we go. Cat fights over money and anything else for compensation. Now let's try to exact a price. THAT'LL SOLVE EVERYONE'S PROBLEMS!
Never mind the moron's wife obviously didn't agree with him and felt threatened enough to get away from him. If she knew for certain he was going to go out with a bang like this, she probably would have informed law enforcement. But oh no, something happened and now we have to prosecute you because of the off chance you might have simply allowed this to happen.
Moron blames everyone else for his problems, now the wife gets blamed for his mess. Oh yeah, way to go! :thmbup1:......:dozey:
When you work for the IRS, it shouldn't be unreasonable to expect that sooner or later some crazy bastard will try to kill you. Chalk it up as an occupational hazard, and go work somewhere else if you don't like it.
