This guy is suing White Castle because he is too fat to fit in one of their booths. I have no words.

^ that guy either has the world's longest legs or he's completely full of shit. I'm an inch shorter than the height he was listed at in another article (6 feet), and I used to weigh a few pounds more than he claims he does. I never had a problem fitting into the booths there the 2 times I actually ate there instead of getting carryout.

^ :o Are they sure he's 39 years old?
What kind of an adult kills his mother, and just for an Avril Lavigne ticket??

the piece did say he had bi-polar, which is a mental illness,
but didn't say which kind or how severe

the piece made me wonder if he was still living at home,
which could indicate the disease is non-trivial

the piece indicated it might be self defense

not enough detail, to really know what's going on --
beyond the media wanting more eyeballs

I haven't read the details carefully. It may be a self defense, a silly ticket can not be the only reason.
I, myself got diagnosed with bi-polar disorder, but i've always thought my psychologist was wrong.
It has very specific characteristics and when the patient isn't supported with drugs w/or therapy it may become a psychotic manic-depression. If so, yeah this guy shouldn't have been living with his parents, instead he should have been getting professional help.


Btw the way the written media narrates such cases makes me sick.
