I just read an article this morning online about a group teens in Oklahoma who randomly shot and killed an Australian collage student and claim they did it "for the fun of it". All I can think of is, what is wrong with these kids? 

"...Charged with first-degree murder are Chancey Allen Luna, 16, and James Francis Edwards Jr., 15, according to the Stephens County District Attorney's office. Michael Dewayne Jones, 17, who allegedly drove the vehicle carrying the other suspects, was charged with use of a vehicle in the discharge of a weapon and accessory to murder after the fact, the office said..."

"...Lane was out jogging during a visit to his girlfriend and her family in Duncan on Friday, when he was shot in the back, police said. He attended East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma, where he was on a baseball scholarship.

What drives a person (even the most immature teenager) to think that killing someone is funny? Or that its acceptable to kill for fun? From a psychological viewpoint, what causes a persons train of thought to resort to killing for fun?

See there you go with that Doubting Thomas routine.  I've seen it done.  You push a couple of pedals with your feet, and wiggle the wheel a bit.  What could possibly go wrong?

Here you go, Strega.  The perfect starter pistol

OK maybe not.  (The Desert Eagles are HUMONGOUS and the round they fire is so powerful it's painful to shoot them--even with all that weight to handle the recoil.  The brand was made famous by being used by Ahnuld in so many of his movies.  So out there as to be useless in reality, perhaps a fun toy.)

No, no, no. There's nothing feminine about that gun. How about a cute little gun like this:
