“Should we be killing anyone?”

Friendly reminder that Sam and Dean are basically professional murderers.

Remember the scene from 6x15, “The French Mistake” when they enter the parallel universe? The first question Sam asks is “Should we be killing anyone?”

Of course it’s meant to be funny. And it is (like literally everything in that episode.)

But although they can be the cutest of cinnamon rolls, we should absolutely never forget that they went through years of training before they were even legal.

John gave Sam a .45 when he was nine. NINE. It’s another one of this lines we tend to laugh at, because it is so totally absurd, but still – if you think about it, it’s sick.

Just for fun I googled the training Navy SEALs go through. It’s more than a year. They spend weeks honing different skills. Sam and Dean started training, well, pretty much after they were born. But let’s say they actually started with ten.

They were sparring, crafting their own bullets, learning about the monsters out there. Dean never went away and in the prologue he’s 26, giving him 16 years of training. Sam would have ten, considering he’s been in Stanford for two years. (Some sources say it was four years, but in The Pilot Deans says two so I’ll go with that.)

Now, unlike Navy SEALs they actually had real cases during their training. Plus, the younger we are, the easier we pick stuff up. They basically trained not only their brains and bodies, the act of hunting became an instinct. Example: Even after two years in Stanford Sam still hears Dean coming in, is completely prepared for a fight. It’s part of who they are.

And as I said: They were not just training. They are learning by doing – confronted with a foreign thread, a monster they never encountered before, they need to use what they have and defeat it. It’s not like it’s enough that they know how to handle a gun. They can use knifes, machetes, are good at-hand-to hand combat. They can use pretty much everything that just stands around in a normal house as a weapon. You and me would think ‘decoration’. Sam and Dean think ‘possible weapon if necessary’.

They learned how to treat their own injuries – and not just scratches. Bullet wounds, deep cuts, dislocated shoulders – no problem. And what’s completely stunning: They could even dig a bullet out of themselves. Stitch themselves up. Do you know how much that would hurt? What kind of will power is necessary to pull that off? We don’t think about that. Sam is quiet and Dean jokes his way through situations like that.

That’s called coping mechanism. Seriously, Dean and Sam are well-trained assassins, instincts honed to keep up with supernatural beings, raised to kill.

And the next time you watch an episode, just keep in mind that behind Sam’s gentleness and Dean’s laughter is a man that could snap your neck before you even realize they’re there.

Just saying.

Columbine shooters Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold during the filming of their creative writing school project; Hitmen for Hire. In the video, the pair talk about shooting and killing other students, an eerily foreshadowing moment considering the nature of their crimes. They were graded exceptionally well for their efforts, and the teacher noted that “Yours is a unique approach and your writing works in a gruesome way — good details and mood setting.“

Musician and convicted murderer, Varg Vikernes, was also a hugely violent, racist who believed strongly in white power. When police arrested him in 1993, they found thousands of rounds of ammunition in his home (around 3,000) which Vikernes explained were for an attack on a left-wing group. He had planned the attack and was going to travel to Oslo to carry out a massacre shortly after he murdered his fellow band member, Øystein Aarseth. Investigators found notes that indicated the plan was on the “verge of execution” and that the only thing that stopped such a heinous crime, was his arrest that night.

“Everyone is always making fun of me because of how I look, how fucking weak I am and shit, well I will get you all back: ultimate fucking revenge here. you people could have shown more respect, treated me better, asked for my knowledge or guidance more, treated me more like senior, and maybe I wouldn’t have been as ready to tear your fucking heads off. then again, I have always hated how I looked, I make fun of people who look like me, sometimes without even thinking sometimes just because I want to rip on myself. That’s where a lot of my hate grows from, the fact that I have practically no self esteem, especially concerning girls and looks and such. therefore people make fun of me… constantly… therefore I get no respect and therefore I get fucking PISSED. as of this date I have enough explosives to kill about 100 people, and then if I get a couple bayonets, swords, axes, whatever I’ll be able to kill at least 10 more. and that just isn't enough! GUNS! I need guns! Give me some fucking firearms!”

- In the months leading up to the Columbine High School Massacre, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold loaded up on guns, bullets, pipe bombs, and attempted to make napalm. The two shooters’ ultimate motive was revenge, as they both felt like loners and wanted everyone else to pay. In his last journal entry on the 3rd of April 1999, Harris wrote “I hate you people for leaving me out of so many fun things.” 17 days later, he and Klebold became the perpetrators of one of the worst school shootings in American history, shooting dead 13 people before turning their guns on themselves.

At 7:06 AM on January 24, 1989, 42-year-old Ted Bundy was electrocuted by the State of Florida for the murder of Kimberly Leach.
