Post mong, ergo propter mong.

It was bound to happen.

The Steven Seagal movie On Deadly Ground involves scenes of graphic violence and shows multiple killings using weapons including shotguns, rifles, submachine guns and grenades.

Hmmm. This calls for an expert opinion. Aha! There’s one, in the side bar…

Prof Browne, an expert in forensic and child psychology, said there was "no doubt whatsoever" of a link between violent films and games and violence on the streets.

Okay, Prof Browne. I propose an experiment. Show that Seagal film, on BBC1 at 9pm tonight. We’ll all watch it, then see if there are any massacres.

Meanwhile, in anticipation of the cries of “BAN IT. BAN IT ALL!”, I’ve drawn up a list.

In the highly unlikely event that I ever decide to go on a murderous rampage, I shall make it plain that leading up to the terrible event, I was influenced by the following:

  • Listening to The Now Show on Radio 4, with special guest Jeremy Hardy.
  • Reading a George Monbiot Book
  • Watching Britain’s Got Talent
  • Playing music by Mumford and Sons
  • Following @BevaniteEllie on Twitter.

If the legacy of my bloody rampage was that lot being cast into the abyss, I don’t think history would judge me too harshly. Do you?

    You went “Mutually Assured Destruction” level nuclear this quickly?

  2. “The Steven Seagal movie On Deadly Ground involves scenes of graphic violence and shows multiple killings using weapons including shotguns, rifles, submachine guns and grenades.”

    they forgot that it included Steven Seagal acting (banned by the Geneva Convention) and is consequently a shite film.
