I can’t control my destiny. I trust my soul, my only goal is just to be. There’s only now, there’s only here. Give in to love, or live in fear. No other path. No other way. No day but today.

Pretty late to this, but I finally decided to rank these and make a definitive list.

Australian mass shooter Martin Bryant being interviewed following the Port Arthur massacre

On April 28th 1996 Martin Bryant opened fire at the Port Arthur historic site, a popular tourist destination in Tasmania, Australia. He was armed with a .223 calibre Colt AR-15 SP1 Carbine and a .308 calibre L1A1 SLR battle rifle. Bryant murdered 35 people and injured a further 23 others making it Australia’s deadliest mass shooting to this day.

The massacre caused a national outcry and Prime Minister John Howard introduced new gun control legislation. The National Firearms Programme Implementation Act of 1996 was passed the same year restricting private ownership of high capacity semi-automatic rifles and shotguns as well as pump-action shotguns. Uniform firearms licensing was also introduced. These measures passed with bipartisan support from the entire Commonwealth and Australian states and territories.

The people killed by Martin Bryant were Winifred Aplin (58), Walter Bennett (66), Nicole Burgess (17), Sou Leng Chung (32), Elva Gaylard (48), Zoe Ann Hall (28), Elizabeth Howard (26), Mary Howard (57), Mervyn Howard (55), Ronald Noel Jary (71), Tony Kistan (51), Leslie Lever (53), Sarah Kate Loughton (15), David Martin (72), Noelene Joyce Martin (69), Pauline Masters (49), Alannah Louise Mikac (6), Madeline Grace Mikac (3), Nanette Patricia Mikac (36), Andrew Bruce Mills (39), Peter Brenton Nash (32), Gwenda Joan Neander (67), Moh Yee William Ng (48), Anthony Nightingale (44), Mary Rouse Nixon (60), Glenn Pears (35), Russell James Pollard (72), Janette Quin (50), Helene Salzmann (50), Robert Salzmann (57), Kate Elizabeth Scott (21), Kevin Sharp (68), Raymond Sharp (67), Royce William Thompson (59) and Jason Bernard Winter (29).

Although his true motive remains largely unknown, it is claimed by his lawyer that Bryant was fuelled by a desire for notoriety and infamy having been inspired by international media reports of the Dunblane school massacre in Scotland, United Kingdom. Following his capture Bryant was fixated on finding out how many people he killed and was reportedly impressed and pleased with the number.

A monument and memorial garden were constructed in Port Arthur to be opened on the fourth anniversary of the massacre in April, 2000. Bryant remains in prison today age 50 in the Wilfred Lopes Centre near the Risdon Prison Complex.

Look at it, they are so in character:

Martin Fremann (Bilbo): “I don’t know why I’m doing this, but fuck it, I do it anyway.”
Richard Armitage (Thorin): “I’m a very important dwarf, doing very important practice, because it’s important”
James Nesbitt (Bofur): “HahahahaAHAHAHAA, LOOK AT HOW RIDICULOUS I LOOK! THIS IS SO FUN!!”
Graham McTavish (Dwalin): “I’m doing it wrong, but I pull this through until the bitter end.”

William Kircher (Bifur): “I may have an axe stuck in my head, but I’m gonna show you spring chicken how to do this proper”


Perfect cast, Ladies and Gentleman.

So I finally read The Hobbit and I realized very important stuff:

-Fili is actually the youngest. Not Kili or Ori.

-Ori is nearly 50 years older than Fili and Kili (it is stated that Kili and Fili were the youngest dwarves by 50 years)

-Thorin does not hate elves

-Not much fighting in the Hobbit

-Elves are not vegetarian

-Thorin is actually a sarcastic little shit

-Eagles actually talk and so do thrushes and ravens.

-Crows are evil according to Balin

-Azog is actually dead and it’s Bolg who leads the orcs

-Dain slew Azog

-Elves like to sing. Like a lot

-Thorin was actually compared to a dog in a small kennel. Twice.

-Bard is practically nonexsistent till the dragon comes out. He is also a very suspicious man.“


-No mention of Bain

-Thorin is actually decent towards Bilbo

-Thranduil is not that cold

-Alfrid does not exist.

-Bilbo actually gets tired of Thorin’s shit (actually he gets tired of Thorin’s rambling on. He’s a very important dwarf apparently)

-Thorin plays the harp

-Trolls are not THAT daft; they hid in the dark and waited for the Company members to pop up and one by one shoved them in a bag

-They looked to Bilbo quite a lot

-Fili and Kili died protecting their Uncle *mind flashes to Dain protecting Brands body*

-Bilbo passed tf out during the battle lol

-Dwalin gave Bilbo his green cloak to which Bilbo kept till the end of his days.
