I want to know what all of you think about the current phenomenon
of kids with guns and the violence around the world, especially
with young people, meaning pubescent teenagers. What is happening
to this workd? Any theories? I have some friends that believe
it's alien forces and they're serious. There's a lady that died
in Riverside and when she was rushed to the hospital, they were
starting to operate on her, a Dr. and a few nurses fainted and
were still hospitalized. Something about her blood. The whole
emergency center was evacuated becasue of toxic fumes emanating
from the woman's body. What's going on here? Any dialog?

To: Seeker1:

So could this be a new meme, alien forces and toxic fumes, i.e.
humans (or aliens in human form) as pollution, not just
polluters. Or is this just the synthesis and resurgence of two
old memes, aliens and women as polluting? Was the woman in the
hospital menstruating? What is going on here?

Maybe a new slogan in the making: Give a hoot, Don't shoot, Don't
