I Am Nostradamus
Posted on Thursday, April 19 @ 15:41:15 Eastern by Duke_FerrisOn Monday I made several predictions about the then-unknown, psychotic Virginia Tech shooter. So did Jack Thompson.
Jack predicted that Cho Seung Hui (we certainly know his name and face now) would be obsessed with violent video games, possibly Counter Strike. Now this is a male college student we're talking about here, so Jack's got like a 99% probability of success. The result? Jack was dead wrong.
Now that the search warrant has been made public, we discover that he has no TV, no game console of any sort, and only a Compaq laptop on which he might possibly have played some games, assuming it was a high-end laptop. However, his roommate states that he never saw Cho ever play any games.
Now let's look at my predictions:
1- He's a Christian - Check. In his crazy ranting videos, he talks about "dying like Jesus". I guess he must have read a different story about how Jesus died.
2- Brown eyes - Check.
3- Eats pizza - Can't confirm 100%. Students report that he ate alone in the dining halls. I can confirm that both dining halls featured pizza.
Faced with the facts, Thompson now appears on TV to insist that Cho was playing Counter Strike in secret. Clearly delusional.
If you ask me, what we have here is clear evidence that not playing video games with your friends like a normal person is, in fact, a danger sign.
