I just saw an odd story. This past Friday, somebody went into a movie
theatre here in southern Ontario during a midday showing of a film from
India and sprayed customers with "a noxious substance" - believed to be
bear spray - then drove two hours east through heavy traffic and did it
again in another movie theatre.
I'm trying to imagine why someone would do such a thing but I can't
think of anything but mental illness. Or maybe some kind of political
protest since the film is a fictionalized story based on an individual
in British India who apparently protested the British two centuries ago.
I know some cultures hold grudges a very long time so maybe the guy that
did the spraying thought it made sense to spray the distant descendants
of people who'd participated in the events depicted in the film, even
though they were half a world away and two centuries after the fact??
