why would you want to blow up exeter? this country can't make anything well anymore.
my ex lives there after all.
Mentally ill man blows up his own face in restaurant toilet. The local news are loving it. This stuff probably happens all the time in London.
and a mentally ill guy DIDN'T blow his own face up.
was that this was an 'other news' story for almost all of yesterday - after all, it's a man suffering slight burns and hurting nobody else after locking himself in a shopping centre restaurant toilet and detonating a small device - and then someone from the police mentioned that he was an Islam convert and suddenly it's a massive story.
When I first heard about this I assumed it was animal rights related. I think in the past an anti-fur group left an incendiary device in an Exeter department store. I assumed it was connected to that.
I prefer it that way
They can laugh at the man injured because he was being a terrorist.
They can call him a prick without anyone calling them racist.
They can scaremonger people into thinking Muslims are converting all our mentally ill into suicide bombers.
I half-suspect this has been made up by all the national newpaper editors.
restaurant was the Giraffe.
"Terrorist tries to blow up Giraffe"
I hadn't notices it. And if I had, it definitely would have made the list. Good call.
'Half-suspect' becomes 'seriously wondering'.
i saw him described on the news this fair morn as a gentle giant, he probably wanted so so much to fit in with all the other terrorists in plymouth, but couln't bring himself to do anything bad, so he went to exeter and tried to top himself, as most people in exeter do. my uncle is a reverend in Exeter, little devon fact for you there!
i have this idea in my head that when i get bored of london, i'm going to move to exeter. i don't know why, I'VE NEVER EVEN BEEN THERE.
though wasn't a hundred reasons video filmed there?
at the cavern club.
maybe i'll go through with my plan to move to the bleakest seaside town in england that isn't in essex then..
There's a sign as you come into the town
Town Centre- 1/4 miles
Death - 4 Years
as did great yarmouth and blackpool.
ideally i'd like somewhere grim and depressing and also far from anywhere else.
my chalet mates at ATP...
Skegness has been dubbed "the Blackpool of the East Coast"
Not great, but it was alright
The fact he "islamic" is as close to "it was video games" as we are going to get really. Unless they start pinning it on both excuses, then we are really fucked.
he mustnt have had a very good bomb if it blew up in his face and didnt even kill him
