Just looked and nary a person worth an honest fuck has died on May 25 (in multiples of 5 years); maybe someone will change that today.

It's the 1st anniversary of the University of California shootings. Elliot Rodger, son of a movie producer, killed 6 people and then himself on May 23rd.... and left a rambling, erm, "explanation" on youtube (It was cause he couldn't get any).
