    Man, what's in the air at Virginia Tech?

    If a video game developer removed tumors from players, they'd whine about nerfing their loss in weight and access to radiation powers. -Cracked.com

    Kind of glad I decided that college wasn't for me. Being surrounded by gallons of angst on all sides without supervision... But this is derivative. I hope no one else gets hurt, of course.
    I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

    It's so weird because the area around Virginia Tech is so quiet and underpopulated. There are always the nicest people living there whenever I happen to be in that area. I would never expect things like this to keep happening there.

    Apparently not a very good college to go to. How many times is that now? If I remember right, I think that's 3 incidents.

    Actually no, it's not. It's a very small-town area with an otherwise relatively low crime rate.

    "Now Hiring - Associate Director of Dining Services: applicants for the Associate Director of D... http://bit.ly/rx4DFy #hokies #highered"


    Please tell me those people just quit and are safe...

    Let's try and be respectful people. This is my college, I'm extremely proud to call myself a Hokie, it's an honor to be able to attend Virginia Tech.

    My school is not in the hood, it's a very small community with hardly any crime. It's unfortunate that people keep acting like shootings are only a problem at VT. Wanna take a guess how often armed robberies take place at ODU? Weekly almost. And they don't make the news because it isn't news there, it's commonplace.

    I don't know why this is happening again, but it has nothing to do with the school itself, it's some crazy ass kid with a gun. There isn't anything else to it.

    I managed to not be on campus when all this occurred so I have no idea what is going on first hand.

    I was not making jokes, it was a serious post..I surely hope they would have thought it through a bit more, but they did not. Why do postings for a job in the middle of a school shooting?

    Its just a copycat attack years after the fact. Somebody is trying to one up the previous shootings.

    Again? Seriously, what's going on over there? Obviously something wrong is happening.

    In gun free zones only people who intend to do harm carry guns

    Sad.

    Maybe if it were in Waynesboro... But VT is all the way out by Princeton.

    Melee isn't awful for Challenge Modes; you are. Melee players are a liability for the windows of time in which a tank keeps an enemy mob faced towards them, resulting in an exorbitant loss of damage or death. Melee players are a liability for people who keep rooting mobs next to them. Melee are a liability to a healer that cannot heal.
