I don't know, maybe I am drawing false comparatives and these are all just normal broad-strokes that life takes at his age. I'm sure there aren't many overly obsessed Lennon buffs lurking here, but can anyone else see the parallels?
is billy's wife asian? she is isn't she? weird...

This is what this is all about isn't it? You're going to kill Billy aren't you?

Some of these comparisons I'm not even seeing in John Lennon, except the family thing. What are you talking about specifically?

The fact that his is going to assassinate billy. This is exactly the type of thread that chapman would have started had there been Internet in 1980.

The reality of this happening would be very sad and tragic, but man....this question cracked me up. I read it yesterday and it popped in my head now and again at work.

I guess it's just hard to imagine someone - no matter how unwell - caring enough to do that in 2017.

Why KERRY BROWN???

He always had a rich life with his wifes...


Meanwhile the mostly SP-Freak F***KERS became administrator at three of the four big SP-groups on Facebook.

It would be one of those mad crestfallen women, who hate him for having married this young chick.
