  •  RTP, for some, reality blurs|s|s|s|s (0+ / 0-)

    In 2007 I had a young co-worker take a maple yard stick and hack another co-worker with it, across the back.

    Worker A was blocked by Worker B, who was futzing/conversing and not really paying attention to the quiet "lemmeby lemmeBY"

    When dropped to the floor, Worker A, now zip-tied admitted to 3 nights of marathon RP Gaming (WoW) with left-coasters.
    Sleep deprived, and later admitting to having smoked some chronic laced with dust before work, he slipped into "kill the Orcs" mode.

    Sleep deprived + Gaming + Weed and PCP = assault with an object of opportunity.

    Worker B, was transported to the hospital, with an 18 inch open wound, and remained under physician care for over 3 months due to extensive muscular damage, and a compression fracture.

    So - it's not you.  It may be others.  Just like I haven't gone out and mowed-down a crowd of anyone with a gun - yet others have done so.

    For some, impulse control is weak.  
    Add factors where what control is there, is removed (s.d., alcohol, drugs or psychiatric issues) and you have a recipe for assault and homicide.
