He was a heel, so she gave it to him
June 10 2003
A stormy relationship ended up on a Brooklyn street in the early hours of Saturday when a 100kg woman sat on her ex-boyfriend's chest and clubbed him to death with her size 12 high heeled shoe, police said today
[Well, I've had similar urges, but managed to repress them. What size do you think an American 12 would be in ours? She's somewhat larger than me, I think. Reminds me a bit of that one some months back about the woman running over her ?estranged husband? "accidentally" several times. And during the week of June 23-28, for several days the most popular (highest hits) article on www.smh.com.au was "Man stabbe to death for singing Sinatra off-key.]
Speaking of "Women Who Go Bad"
Folbigg is neither a monster nor a genetically controlled puppet
[also includes quick explanation of "what psychologists know about the consequences of disrupted attachments in early childhood"]
... Folbigg's early life had emotional deprivation and multiple separation experiences. The mother was a drunk and addicted to gambling. The father, Jack Britton, was violent, abusive and a hit man. After one argument her mother walked out, abandoning Kathleen.
Britton left Kathleen with friends. When he tried to persuade the mother to return to the grief-stricken baby, she repeatedly refused. Just before her death, Britton claimed, "I told her the baby was fretting for her and not eating. She said again she couldn't care less." Overcome with rage, he stabbed her 27 times.
With the* mother dead and the* father behind bars, Folbigg was fostered out... [*Why doesn't she say "her" mother, "her" father? Mimicking affectionless?]
MATRIX - Some possibilities
explodingsnap.blogspot.com imagines a pretty funny possible ending to the series:
What if it's all just a video game and at the end we get to see two teens on a couch, one playing as Neo and the other as Trinity, removing their virtual reality helmets. Then one guy says to the other "Hey...I uhm, thought you were a chick."
That would mean these movies were secretly the sequels to Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure all along. [I think Mr Reeves' first feature film appearance was in that movie.]
Spoof new Matrix script www.pointlesswasteoftime.com/matrix2/matrix2script6.html
