Recently we have been hearing about cases of animal cruelty in NZ (in the media, I mean) and they have started prosecting people for acts of cruelty against animals. Instead of turning the blind eye that they usually do, I suppose.

There was very recently a case where someone went into a field, I think, where there was a pet minature horse. Stabbed him 15 or 20 times, I forget. They horse died.

The guy who did it apparently went to the owners house and said he did not do it (I think they were suspecting him or something). He said the person must be crazy who did that.

He drank some home made whiskey and fell asleep at home that night, he reckoned.

Anyway...

People are sort of (but I suppose not really) like 'how / why / what on earth would make anybody do that kind of a thing?'.

And likely the answer is in what people did to him when he was growing up. Or what people did to people he cared for when he was growing up. And of course it doesn't excuse it, at all. But it makes what he did understandable. In the sense of understanding why someone would do something like that.

Because people act out their pathologies. Mostly.

You have people who can't do well in multiple choice tests. People who don't have basic reading comprehension. People who feel like it is always random between 2 options. And so they think they are making a good multiple choice test when they design it in such a manner. When it is random. Because it is random. Because that's the way it's supposed to be -- right?
