    In his last YouTube video, Rodger stated in what seems like prepared remarks, “If I had it in my power, I would stop at nothing to reduce every single one of you to mountains of skulls and rivers of blood, and rightfully so.” Official sound files from World of Warcraft’s Mists of Pandaria have Hellscream, voiced by Patrick Seitz, stating, “I have seen mountains of skulls and rivers of blood, and I will have my world.”
  • Pictured: The blond Norwegian, 32, arrested over 'holiday island massacre'...

    07/22/2011 5:21:37 PM PDT · by Justaham · 67 replies
    The 32-year-old Norwegian man arrested for gunning down children on the holiday island of Utoya has been named locally as Anders Behring Breivik. Described as 6ft tall and blond, he is reported to have arrived on the island of Utoya and opened fire after beckoning several young people over in his native Norwegian tongue. Reports suggest he was also seen loitering around the site of the bomb blast in Oslo two hours before the island incident. More than 30 are believed to have been killed - seven in Oslo and between 25 to 30 on Utoya Island, 50 miles north...

    The man allegedly behind Norway's devastating terror attacks, Anders Behring Breivik, is now under arrest. And he should count himself lucky for—if entirely undeserving of—a penal system in that country that is among the cushiest in the world. There's no capital punishment, and the longest jail term allowed is 21 years (a caveat: if a prisoner is deemed to still be a threat, his sentence can be extended in five-year blocks indefinitely, though it's highly unlikely, according to Norwegian officials). In Norway, rehabilitation is the guiding principle, not punishment—a somewhat difficult notion to swallow given the gravity and callousness of...

    A Swedish professor suggested Israel was behind the bloody terror attacks committed by Norwegian terrorist Anders Behring Breivik this past July, stirring up controversy in the country. Research professor Ola Tunander of the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) published an article in the Norwegian academic journal Nytt Norsk Tidsskrift in which he called to further examine Brevik's motives. According to Tunander, it is possible that some country was behind the terror attacks, hinting that Israel might be that country.

    Could there be a link between Norway-based LTTE operatives and Anders Behring Breivik, who bombed the Norwegian government headquarters in Oslo and wiped out a youth group on a nearby island on July 22 killing over 80 civilians? Responding to a query by The Island, informed sources said that the Norwegian could have had a link with the LTTEactivists in Norway. Breivik, in his 1,518 manifesto, which was released hours before he carried out the massacre, said had felt that Europe should follow the LTTE example of expelling the Muslims from Sri Lanka. He had interpreted the expulsion of Muslims...

    Toronto Sun ^ | July 22, 2011
    Anders Behring Breivik is a conservative Christian who enjoys classical music and the video game World of Warcraft. Breivik has been named by several Norwegian media outlets as the suspected shooter at a youth camp in Oslo, where 10 people were killed Friday and he may be linked to a bombing near the prime minister's residence that killed seven others. On his Facebook page, which appears to only have been started July 17, Breivik mostly posted music videos and said his interests include hunting and bodybuilding. Under education, Breivik wrote he studied independently, noting he has "approximately 14,500 hours of...

    I don’t feel like Age has distributed itself throughout my person in a uniform way. I feel like my aorta probably got the worst of it, its calcified accruals metering blood in strict measure. I would apologize to it if I thought it had any conception of my treachery. The only thing I can do now is to try and avoid reading articles about the s*** my government gets up to without a couple pensive, preparatory breaths. ---SNIP--- I think that freedom is cool, and I would prefer to have more than less; that’s not even why I hate it....

    Giving a new twist to the term "spy games," U.S. and British intelligence agents have infiltrated the World of Warcraft and Second Life online fantasy games in their search for terrorists and criminal networks. The spy agencies "have built mass-collection capabilities against the Xbox Live console network, which has more than 48 million players," James Ball reported in The Guardian. He based his account on classified papers leaked by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, whose release of masses of documents detailing U.S. communications surveillance has made him a finalist for Time's Person of the Year. Spies took on...

    A 23-year-old man died in an Internet cafe in New Taipei City after 10 straight hours of gaming on Tuesday and police said yesterday they were shocked to find complete disinterest from the other gamers in the cafe during their investigation. According to police, Chen Jung-yu, who worked at Northern Taoyuan Cable TV as an engineer, had paid for 23 hours at a New Taipei City Internet cafe at 10pm on Tuesday to play World of Warcraft, but died 10 hours later. The clerk at the Internet cafe said Chen was a frequent customer at the cafe, and had taken...

    Now THIS is a crazy story. (Funeral Ambush Story) I am sure many of you are aware of the computer game Warcraft and the large community of on-line players who have created characters and have gotten to "know" other players through this outlet. Many of these people have been playing this game for years and their characters have gained a certain level of notoriety amongst other players. They then form clubs (called "Guilds" in the game language) and fight other clubs for status. Whole communities of these characters have been formed and real people spend thousands of hours in this...

    World of Warcraft is a very popular (5.5 million subscriptions worldwide as of January 2006) online role-playing game by Blizzard Enternatinment (a subsidary of Vivendi Universal). As part of the gameplay, players travel around a virtual world killing various monsters who drop in-game money and occasionaly in-game objects. Recently in early January, Blizzard released a large patch for the game adding new in-game places, monsters and items. Two of these new items are blatantly anti-Christian. The Cape of the Trinity http://www.thottbot.com/?i=52765 and the Gloves of the Messiah http://www.thottbot.com/?i=52782 What is disturbing is that Blizzard has the entire universe of the...

    Cheaters in a massively multiplayer title ruin the game, and companies that develop the software have to guard against them in order to maintain a good user experience for all. But are they allowed to spy on us? And if so, at what point do we stop taking their word that - Scout's honor - they won't look at or use the wrong information? Does Blizzard spy on you? A recent posting on RootKit.com suggests that Blizzard installs software that watches the personal information of people playing their game. The software is designed to hunt for cheat-ware, but reads the...

    A deadly virtual plague has broken out in the online game World of Warcraft. Although limited to only a few of the game's servers the numbers of characters that have fallen victim is thought to be in the thousands. Originally it was thought that the deadly digital disease was the result of a programming bug in a location only recently added to the Warcraft game. However, it now appears that players kicked off the plague and then kept it spreading after the first outbreak. Since its launch in November 2004, World of Warcraft (Wow) has become the most widely played...

    A federal appeals court has ruled that computer programmers do not have the right to reverse-engineer Blizzard Entertainment's video games to improve their playability. The 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis ruled Thursday that federal law--specifically, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act--disallows players from altering Blizzard games to link with servers other than the company's official Battle.net site. Affected games published by Blizzard, a division of Vivendi Universal, include titles in its "Diablo," "Starcraft" and "Warcraft" lines. In a 3-0 decision, the court upheld a trial judge's ruling from October, concluding the programmers' "circumvention in this case constitutes infringement."...
