I read an interesting piece of news from a recent study at CU Boulder about your likeliness to shoot an armed or unarmed suspect based purely on race. While I find this study fascinating and horrifying on several levels, I think this quote sums it up best,

"Both the police and student subjects were most likely to shoot at blacks, then Hispanics, then whites and finally, in a case of what might be called a positive bias, Asians, researchers found.

This study reveals a decidedly dark side of human nature and makes me questions the stereotypes we have, but I instantly thought of Estelle Getty in "Stop or My Mom Will Shoot!". Am I the only one who misses Sty Stallone in Action Comedies?

While this study was conducted in a purely academic environment, the recent passing of Amendment 64 in Colorado, combined with the ruling to allow concealed carry on campus should make for a stoned, well armed and trigger happy populous. At least we are well educated.....


 
 
This is a bike murder here in Boulder. It appears this unfortunate chap was locked up in the wrong place and was quickly stripped. The broken off pedal was just a grotesque addition to an unfortunate scene.
 
 
It's about time Ahmadinejad started looking like the proper villain he is portrayed to be. I'm not commenting on his motives or leadership but I think he has a shot at a James Bond role with those shades and a nuclear program.
