    He's not the first to be ignorant of history ... and he won't be the last.

    Those knowledgable have the duty to correct it when you see it, otherwise they may become the first, by popular opinion.

    Yup, saw a post about it over at ETO, I believe. It's a very cheap trick. There is no danger involved whatsoever. He's taking advantage of all the stupid, naive, ignorant, and/or uninformed people. It's unethical, if you ask me--instilling fear in helpless spectators for no reason whatsoever....

    When I saw his stunt I turned away indifferent. I wasn't impressed.

    You referring to the same guy who talked about "the circuits flowing through him"?



    Cheap trick. Doing something marginally cool for a really long time doesn't make it really cool.
