I’ve had relationships end suddenly and badly for me, and I never considered harming them, ever.

33 years in the slam is not enough time IMO.

One can understand why she’d be his ex-girlfriend, but why was she ever current?

@murgatroid Well put.

Who among us hasn’t wanted, from time to time, to rain destruction onto our enemies (and those who just piss us off no end) from out of the clear blue. I wonder if there are plans and instructions on the interweb. Don’t think I’ll go looking just yet…

Slow drivers in the passing lane, people who don’t use turn signals, people who don’t “go” at green, people turning left who don’t move forward into the intersection while waiting for oncoming traffic to clear…

It could be a parlor game to come up with alternate endings to that quote:

clowns, king cobras, and mailboxes

embankment dams, beer, and monster trucks

Maybe he’s really nice and a lot of fun when he isn’t dropping bombs on your house.

Anyway what with one thing and another–the James Bond-rigged car comes to mind—I’d suggest whatever the usual psychological screening is when you suspect a person has issues.

Back in Germany they weren’t the problem, they’d be flying along… Here in America, so many people that have too much money and not enough brain seem to have one…

Why? That seems like rather a creative solution, not something that a crazy person would pull off.

This guy may be good with the McGyvering but isn’t too swift with the tactical thinking. Use the drone to drop the meth on the ex’s house, then place an anonymous call to the cops. But then he’d have less meth for himself.

He was using them in his backyard

Um, he needed to do some stump blasting?

I can’t believe the government is prosecuting this patriot for simply exercising his 2nd Amendment rights. Keep your hands off our bombs you jack-booted thugs!
