Elliot Rodger

This post is something I’m taking very seriously. There will be no jokes, no humour whatsoever. I will also warn anyone who reads this that it will contain disturbing content, especially the video that will accompany this post.

Yesterday a 22 year old male called Elliot Rodger shot and killed six people while also injuring seven others in Isla Vista. He is now dead from a bullet wound to the head, self-inflicted or a shot from one of the police officers pursuing him is still unknown.

Ordinarily, I wouldn’t write about something like this, these are subjects I don’t like writing about and, for the most part, will steer clear of. However, after watching the video accompanying this post, which is titled ‘Elliot Rodger’s Retribution’ and feeling nothing but genuine fear as I heard the words he spoke and how calmly he spoke them, I felt I could not keep my thoughts to myself on this tragedy.

I’m struggling to put things into words but the overriding thought I’m having is how scared I was while watching that video and how insane Elliot Rodger was.

What struck fear into me was the fact that he reminded me of a villain from a movie. A villain that you laugh at because you know that there couldn’t possibly be someone like that in real-life but when I heard his sickening laugh as he talked about ‘slaughter(ing)’ girls simply because he’d never had a girlfriend, I knew there was nothing to laugh about. The fact that someone can talk about being a ‘god’ over, who he perceived to be, ‘animals’ and talk about it seriously, petrifies me. How can anyone be so deluded? I cannot fathom what kind of issues or upbringing he had that could’ve led to mass murder.

I’m sorry, I can’t write anymore about this, I really cannot find the words.

My thoughts go out to the families of the victims of this awful event, I’m truly sorry for your losses.

Also, if you would like more information on this then here is a link to an article providing more details: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/10853875/California-drive-by-shooting-Son-of-Hunger-Games-assistant-director-Elliot-Rodger-suspected-of-killing-six.html

Is There Such A Thing As Originality?

Every now and again, this one thought pops into my head. However, I also question the originality of this thought because when you question originality it can lead to questioning everything.

How can anyone be sure if they were the first to do or say or think something? 

There are now over 7,000,000,000 people on this planet and with new person comes a new brain and a mind that capable of questioning the things around it and also a brain and mind capable of thinking up new ideas.

But are they new?

How can anyone confirm that they came up with something that no-one else did? It’s impossible to prove.

For all we know, someone, somewhere, whether it be on this planet or elsewhere in this infinite universe, could have written the entire Harry Potter series, word for word, exactly the same as J.K.Rowling and could have even done it before she did.

Someone could have come up with the Theories of Special and General Relativity before Albert Einstein.

Someone could even have written every word I have just written, exactly as I wrote it and asked the very same question and thought the exact same things as I am right now.

The World is full of extraordinary and unlimited possibilities. It’s also filled with ideas and creations we’ve yet to see. 

But are any of them original?

OH MY GOD, I’M AN ADULT, HELP ME IT’S SCARY!

So, I have recently acquired a job and start working on Monday.

This is scary. 

I’m not scared of the idea of working, it’s the ideas that come with it. Such as, talks of me moving out and finding my own place (scary as hell but I’m enjoying looking at furniture). There was also talks of me paying for stuff (SERIOUSLY?! IS THAT ADULT LIFE?!)

I MIGHT ACTUALLY HAVE TO BE A GROWN UP SOON AND THIS IS NOT GOOD FOR ME, I STILL WISH CHARMANDER WAS REAL AND I COULD MAKE SHIT EXPLODE BY POSING JUST LIKE THE POWER RANGERS!

DO YOU UNDERSTAND MY TERROR?!

I CAN’T BE A GROWN UP! I TAKE VIDEO GAMES MORE SERIOUSLY THAN LIFE AND MY WALLET HAS THE INCREDIBLE HULK ON IT!
