From the religion of pieces: Man tased after striking officer, yelling ‘Allah Akbar’ in Goodwill scuffle. Excerpt: “Bilal reportedly had become upset while attempting to convert the employee to Islam.” I’m sure there is mental illness involved in this case as well. Link sent in by reader T.P.

For those who think that people are basically good, Reader L.I. sent in this link to an interview with Marina Abramovic who conducted a terrifying experiment a number of years ago. While I can’t condone her performance, it truly shows how evil man can be. The terrifying point is that the people abusing her were not under duress themselves. Imagine what these same people are capable of if they are hungry or hurt. Abramovic noted: “This work reveals something terrible about humanity. It shows how fast a person can hurt you under favorable circumstances. it shows how easy it is to dehumanize a person who does not fight, who does not defend himself. It shows that if he provides the stage, the majority of ‘normal’ people, apparently can become truly violent.” (Warning, there is some graphic content in this article.)

The April Fool’s videos on YouTube are some of my favorites. This year Vortex Optics had one of the best with their Vortex\Hornady Bullet-Cam. Thanks to Pat Cascio, SurvivalBlog’s Senior Product Review Editor, for the link. Don’t forget the Followup from YouTuber Four Lazy J’s on the Bullet-Cam Unboxing.
