There's hundreds of multiple gun homicides a year in the US. You'd have to be posting a story a day to catch up, at least.

10 minutes on google a day isn't that much of a time investment, and thus far i'm at 2-3 a day

So, this is an ongoing issue here. I'm just going to make this thread, and every time I come across a news story about irresponsible assholes being careless with the storage or care of their guns, mass shootings, or bullshit like the ex cop shooting a guy for texting. Im just going to try to track this for a year and see how many pages i can load up by the 17th of 2015. I'm simply going to google "shootings on (yesterday's date)" every day i can remember to and post what i find on the front page only.


You could probably write a script that does this for you.

Having just read xkcd before checking the forum, I found today's strip apropos of your comment.

Yeah, you're right, Munroe does post a lot of stupid shit.

I've quit frequenting xkcd, but I do still occasionally go back to sites like http://xkcd-sucks.blogspot.com/

There is no internet human being more worthless than the one who starts a blog to complain about others works.
