    Joe, you really need to learn the correct pronunciation of “Appomattox”.

      I was just using the “semi-penultimate” rule. aPOMatox. It’s usually right, just not always.

    Are there any other sprees beside shopping and killing?

    How could you forget CRIME SPREES!

    Does Columbine not count? Only on one campus, I suppose.

    I have to say, guys, that this was probably the most disturbing of your episodes I’ve listened to so far (having listened to all up to this point and a number beyond). I guess by talking about things (and especially poking fun at them occasionally) you can take their power away, but there were some mighty powerful examples you spoke about. For example, I hadn’t heard nearly as much detail on the Port Arthur killings as here, and I live in Australia (not Tasmania though). It had a bit effect on gun laws anyway – the federal Govt convinced the public to agree to a cash-for-guns programme to massively reduce the number of guns around the country.

    Thanks for the education.

    Funny that Toren mentions people still listening to this a while down the line – he said 5 years but i guess 3 and a half is close enough. 😀

    Great episode. Haven’t heard about a couple of these. Since this episode the biggest massacre by a single gunman has happened in my native country of Norway. Anders Behring Breivik killed 77 i think.

      Was just coming to say the same thing, a bit closer to the full five years.

    Horrible news from Canada, 8 killed plus a suicide:

    “Canadian police try to make sense of mass slaying after nine people killed”

    Uwe Boll also made a movie called “Rampage”. About a kid wearing a Kevlar body suit. You should check it out. I am by no means a fan of Mr. Boll but I watched it and remember thinking it was decent.
