Media hype wargaming connection with convicted murderer (here we go again…)

31 May

 

Well, the UK press are at it again, and I don’t just mean talking crap and hacking phones, this time us wargaming bods are under attack. It all concerns this fellow in the picture trying to dress like an assassin (which is exactly what he became as it happens…)

The story goes that Wayne Smith, a jilted husband, took revenge on his wife’s new boyfriend and killed him with a kitchen knife after travelling by train to the guys home, stabbing him at his front door. To try and make an alibi, he claimed to have spent the time in question at a friends house, playing (wait for it…) Necromunda!

DNA from his discarded mask and kit pretty much nailed him bang to rights, and now he’s doing bird for murder.

It seems as if the press has latched onto the Necromunda alibi and tried to turn it into another bashing of the hobby (Like the 80’s D&D satanic bullcrap and Fighting Fantasy calling to be banned etc, the list is quite long if you care to look it up. Even White wolf came underfire for the vampire RPG…) Just lets say that GWs old classic tabletop skirmish game has just been added to the ranks of demonised games.

If you take a look at the pictures of the guy, it looks as if he was a LARPer at some stage, but strangely, there is no mention of it, rather it has been lumped under the banner of wargaming.

Well done Daily mail, for spouting yet more crap and discrediting the UK press even further than was thought possible, what is even funnier, is that the article has an info box that gives you some data about the game (for the moral middleclass readers who probably don’t have a clue what the fuck Necromunda is!)

Truth is, a psycho could come from any walk of life. He could have any profession, any hobby or interest, be any race, gender or religion. Why not just focus on the real meat on the bone.

I know countless people who have played and enjoyed Necromunda, and as yet have not killed a person, yet I actually do know and have met “real” murderers, and none of them had the slightest interest in wargaming, RPGs or LARP.

The mind boggles.

Boffin claims Bigfoot DNA reveals BESTIAL BONKING • The Register.

This old Bigfoot DNA stuff is suggesting that the “Hybrid” human species was derived from another hominin interbreeding with a human female thousands of years ago. So I was right!

Like I mentioned, where did this sample evidence come from? Well, this seems to come from the recent hunt in Russia, but if this is the case, why do they suggest this is North American rather than Russian?

Until I see one, I’m not convinced. Dr Ketchum, go catch one!

DNA Diagnostics claim they have mapped the genome of the Sasquatch!!

I want there to be Bigfoot (should that be Bigfeet?), but if they exist there would have to be a sustainable breeding population and that doesn’t seem likely.

Maybe they breed or have bred with humans? That might be why they describe the samples being hybrids?

Maybe they are just bullshitting us again!

DNA Diagnostics, Inc. – Genetics, Forensics, Paternity, Human DNA Testing, & Animal DNA Testing.

However, there as I suspect, a bit of hokum going on. The Doctor in charge of the samples has got a name like a character from the Pokemon cartoons!
