Would you buy the Unabomber's copy of Al Gore's book?

Posted on 05/18/2011 8:58:07 AM PDT by Halfmanhalfamazing

Earlier today I heard a news flash that the Unabomber's possessions were being auctioned off and that was the first thing that came to mind. I've since looked at some of the things that're being auctioned, but I didn't see that book among the things listed.(though it seems reasonable that if Gore's book is among the items, the media wouldn't mention it)


TOPICS: Humor; Miscellaneous; Society
KEYWORDS: algore; environmentalism; gore; insane; kaczynski; unabomber; unibomber
I don't know if I'd want it, but it is an interesting aspect of the story that he was reading "earth in the balance".

How about if it was autographed? :-)

Hell, I wouldn’t want Al Gore’s copy of Al Gore’s book.

I wish Rush would buy it. He has that Algore Doomsday clock running on the bottom of his website.

Sure. I could buy it as a gift for the people at the EPA that I worked with at the time of the Unabomber's capture, who all agreed with the Unabomber's Manifesto (printed in the Washington Post), they just disagreed with his methods (or so they said).

[not a joke. they actually said this]

As long as the unabomber isn’t the one shipping it to me.

Yours was NOT the post to read while sipping hot coffee...(but I'll recover from the sinus burns eventually).

Bwahaha

I knew a question like the one I asked would draw out responses such as yours.

"This kind of thing just creeps me out and I won't have it in the shop". ...unless I can make some money off it. What do you want to do with it, sell it or pawn it?

Last night's episode of NCIS brought Ted Kazinski to mind. Ted was normal when he began college -- but volunteered to serve as a guinea pig for military-funded psychological experiments that featured mind-altering drugs and abusive brainwashing techniques. He was never the same after that -- and, like the P2P killer, sought to strike back.
