Lately, I seem to be repeatedly reminded of this quote from Full Metal Jacket:
WHAT IS YOUR MAJOR MALFUNCTION, NUMBNUTS?! Didn't your mommy and daddy show you enough attention when you were a child?!
It's sad to see someone back here who so desperately wants attention, he's willing to act like a jackass to get it. Like a troubled child who will act out to get attention, good or bad.
Maybe he doesn't get enough at home. Maybe he needs a hug.
