    A young psychopath? 

    “It was great. Cos I wanted to go on an adventure.” – the kid

    “He just doesn’t like the word no.” – Mum

    Take a look at this story: a 12 year old Australian boy steals his mother’s credit card, cons his grandmother into handing over his passport, then catches a flight from Sydney to Bali, in Indonesia, by himself, lying and charming people all along the way. A psychopath in the making? See what you think:

    The clip, uploaded to YouTube by Screen Tower 2, is from an Australian programme called A Current Affair, broadcast on the Nine Network on 23 April 2018.

      Spunky kid. He certainly had his charm on too. I had a friend who was hitch-hiking in the South at the age of 14. He was busted for truancy. They put him on a chain gang. The bitch of the thing was that when they let him go after he completed his term, the cops came along and busted him all over again. He said they would just act like they had never seen him before. And there were old men who had fallen for this scam. Chuck cut through the woods to escape.

      Very good observation. That kid does not have many behavioral brakes, not to mention a fairly practical way to approach to things. He is pretty much cream of the crop, con man material, lol.

        What’s a behavioural brake? The thing that cemented it for me was not the kid himself, but the relatives. Dad didn’t even appear, despite being part of the story. Mum deflects blame to “the system” which let her son do what he wants. And granny, when she says that he’s a good kid, is lying. “Ah no, there’s no problem with him. He’s just…” (eyes go up to the right as speech falters) “…too intelligent for himself at the moment.”

          If he’s half as intelligent as they give him credit for then surely, he wont have any problem anticipating his parents reaction if he run off with their credit card and passport. He tested their reaction twice before when they picked him up at the airport before, lol. He knows they will be pretty angry, probably stressed out and generally upset for a good while afterwards. None of that seem to bother him and any potential threat of punishment is not a problem either. Judging from the interview it doesn’t seem like he feel guilty or shameful for what he did. In short, he doesn’t seem have much respect for other people.

          He’s good at finding the answers the interviewer will like, even though the guy doesn’t even try to hide his scepticism. The tv host compared him to Frank Abagnale a famous con man, that’s a bit manipulative of him. That’s a bit like suggesting the kid only managed to pull it off because he has the same abilities, not necessearily true, there could be more to that story.

          The relatives come off as a bit shallow, hard to disagree on that. Granny is exaggerating the positive stuff, “he’s kind, he’s generous, he’s got a heart of gold and..Eh..Uhm.. Nah, there is no problem with him. He’s just.. He’s just… Too intelligent for his own self at the moment” she is excusing him and it doesn’t even make sense. She avoids saying anything that can be interpreted as negative. She knows he’s a selfish brat alright.

            I agree with all of that, except I think the reporter and host were both taken in by his charm. Sure, they still saw what he had done, but sometimes that doesn’t matter compared to how someone makes you feel. Of course, there’s always more to the story, that we will never know (it would have been easier for me to make a judgment if I had got a look at the boy’s face, but that’s neither here nor there…)

            Tell me, what do you think of the boy saying that when he watched his parents walking towards him everything slowed down? That struck me as fake as fuck, taken right from some soppy movie (possibly one of the Home Alones!), but then I don’t know whether ‘slow motion’ is actually a thing people experience.

              The reporter does seem pretty captivated, he wasn’t hiding that. His face and voice give me the impression that there is an element of conflict between what the knows and what he wants to believe, lol. He looks like he recognise the behavior.

              To me time dilation or slow motion type of experiences is more like something I reccon people would experience in critically dangerous situations (or possibly when certain drugs are involved). For him to experience everything slowing down when his parents show up simply sounds like an incredibly weird reaction. Even wierder when considering all the other stuff he managed to pull off without much restraint. I find that claim difficult to take seriously. It’s like something a drunken sailor would say to flesh out a story, or any teenager to impress his/her friends. He’s mother and granny were exaggerating stuff too, so he probably picked got that habit from home.

                Have you experienced time dilation? I have stepped in front of moving vehicles more times than I should’ve – nothing remotely interesting happened, apart from the people around me getting scared. A couple of times, I said “my life flashed before my eyes”, because I’ve heard others use that one before.

                  Can’t say I have experienced anything close to “slow motion”, but time definitively feel like it moves slower if fear is involved. Which can be pretty usefull, for slow people like me, lol.

                  It’s not that I’m the type of person that takes most/everything people say literally, but phrases like “my life flashed before my eyes” kind of sound a bit overly dramatic. Then again some people just have a lot of dramatic stories, which can have entertainment value without having to be 100% believable.

      Have you seen this talk by Frank Abagnale?

      He did most of his crazy stuff when he was in his late teens to early twenties. That guy has a “grifty” intuition like few others. He talks swiftly and fairly highly articulated, what parts of his story do you find believeable and which parts do you think he added because they make people get a better/useful impression of him?

      Just to be clear, I haven’t concluded anything about Frank Abagnales personality.

        Haven’t got time to spend an hour watching that right now, but thanks for sharing. I enjoyed the film adaptation of his life with Leo DiCaprio.

    Slaughterbots 

    Some exciting tech news!

    Pretty wonderful, eh? Never mind all the exterminated terrorists, just think of all the defectives we could get rid of with a team of beautiful drones, using facial recognition software and a smart analysis of the data trails everyone leaves behind.

    Self-confessed psychopaths for instance; all those pricks with blogs and quora accounts and Facebook groups who have outed themselves online. Find their IP address, discover their real social media account, learn their name, what they look like and where they live, then send out the drones. Boom! If they have any children, chances are they also carry the evil gene, so it would be prudent to kill them too. Callous unemotional? Oppositional defiant? Conduct disorder? Boom! Now they’re all dead.

    Why stop there? Send the tracking bots onto websites where paedophiles share kid porn, or where racists swap jokes about Jews, then repeat the same process. IP, geolocate, face recon, boom! There really is no end to the problems we could solve with the help of our flying executioners.

    You could send them after real estate agents, for example. Nobody really likes them, do they? The drones would be fulfilling a public service. “An exciting opportunity has arisen in an up-and-coming neighbourho-” Boom! Those nasty beggars on the street who pester you for a handout? Drone ’em. “Excuse me sir, could you spare a-” Boom! Urgh, the Kardashians, yuck. Boom!

    While we’re at it, let’s take care of bankers, lawyers and politicians. Well, only some politicians. Naturally, the drones will be in the hands of the politicians that matter, the good kind of politician in our sweet and benevolent governments. No, the politicians we can make the chopper-bombs destroy will be those with dangerous ideas about equality and wealth redistribution. Now we can finally put an end to these monsters once and for all. Democratic accountability? Boom! Anti-government protests? Boom! Online petitions? Boom!

    Fuck it, I hate lazy scroungers, disabled wasters and trade unionists. Boom, boom, boom! Gays, trans people and other sexual degenerates? Thanks to wide societal acceptance, we know who you all are! Boom! Find all self-confessed Muslims, Jews and other deviant devil-worshippers on the census, and fucking boom them in the head! In fact, forego that. Just send the drones into mosques, synagogues, temples, monasteries and religious schools. Boom! Black people will be piss easy to locate with omnipresent facial recognition software. Racial purity, here we come, not with a bang but with a boom! Statistics say that one in four adults suffer from mental illness. They also say that one in four adults has just had their head exploded!

    Boom! Fucking BOOM!

    If like me, you can’t wait for the day when all of society’s enemies can be destroyed mercilessly, leave a like and a comment, and don’t forget to share the good news with all of your friends 🙂

    Interrupted Access 

    I was moved to respond to James’ article, What’s your opinion on psychopaths?, but it seems that is the only page I do not get a reply box or even see replies on.

    What I wanted to add is that I don’t have an opinion of psychopaths, per se, but that I judge ALL, Each by whether They choose to remain Ethical. If They don’t break the three Laws of Ethics (also called Common Law), it’s not My business to impose, and if They are pleasant, I tend to like them a lot.

    In fact, I suggest this would be the approach statistically all of Us would choose in the abundance paradigm. [smile]
