Latest Excuse for UCSB Killer: Creatine

Posted by on May 28, 2014 at 6:39 am

So by our count we need to now ban guns, knives and creatine. Or perhaps we should start involuntarily committing obvious psychopaths?

A friend of “virgin killer” Elliot Rodger has revealed he was addicted to a muscle-building supplement, which could have triggered his anger before his shooting rampage.

Chris Akin, a friend of Rodger, told the Mirror that the Isla Vista murderer started taking the supplement Creatine after a mutual friend died in a bodybuilding accident, while trying to lift a 550 lbs weight.

Akin, who used to Skype regularly with Rodger, 22, said he observed a change in his attitude after he began allegedly taking the drug daily.

Akin, who lives in Chicago, told the Mirror Rodger was trying to build muscle mass to attract girls and get over his grief from losing his close friend.

While not illegal or a steroid, Creatine, an organic acid which is “typically bought in flavored powders and mixed with liquid — increases the body’s ability to produce energy rapidly. With more energy, you can train harder and more often, producing faster results,” Men’ reports. It can also be bought and consumed in a tablet form.

Side effects of Creatine can include “weight gain, muscle cramps, muscle strains and pulls, stomach upset, diarrhea, dizziness, high blood pressure, liver dysfunction, and kidney damage, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center.

It is also understood it can cause mood swings and depression. Bodybuilders have reported getting angry easily and hyper in online forums on the website where Rodger regularly contributed while he was alive.

If anything a waiting period and background checks should be enforced before being allowed to purchase Creatine.

    We need to prevent these crimes by committing people with Narcissistic Personality Disorder to mental institutions. The symptoms are:

    * Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)
    * Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love
    * Believes that he or she is “special” and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions)
    * Requires excessive admiration
    * Has a very strong sense of entitlement, e.g., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations
    * Is exploitative of others, e.g., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends
    * Lacks empathy, e.g., is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others
    Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her
    * Regularly shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes

    People with this disorder are clearly a danger to others and must be locked away for the safety of society as a whole. The side benefit of committing these disturbed individuals is that the symptoms remind me of a certain high-profile politician.

    Hello, Neat post. There’s an issue with your website in internet explorer, could check this? IE still is the marketplace leader and a good part of other folks will omit your wonderful writing due to this problem.
