    A lot of people bedwet. It's the combination of the three (arson, animal cruelty, and bedwetting to a later age than is typical, I think past 7-9 but I'm not sure about that) that is supposedly a bad sign.

    I've never wet the bed with urine beyond 12, and I've never tortured animals (I've teased them, but not tortured), however, I do have a fascination with fire.

    A fascination with fire isn't the same thing as arson. Lots of kids have a fascination with fire, too. Fire is cool.

    Well, I did, by accident burn down my mother's apartment when I was about 10. I was playing with her cigarette lighter.

    It's not every day I hear about arson and think "Oh, that makes sense."

    I'm not sure accidents count as arson, either. I know you'd really like to be a badass but I'm just not sure it's in the cards for you.

    Consider the following:

    Step 1: Burn down the apartment.

    Step 2A: Say "Oh I'm so sorry I accidentally burned down the apartment!" and get away with it, or

    Step 2B: Say "I intentionally burned down the apartment." and go to juvie.

    I know I'd pick 2A.

    Ivy hit it. And so much more succinctly than I could with my referential mind. I didn't know the sinister triad had a name.

    It's that pattern thing that's the determining factor. Persistent pattern.

    Unless you have a secret life beyond the net, Uber, your introspection and gaining knowledge is a useful thing.

    Speaking of family secrets:

    My IXTP son once said to me that he was worried that he may have the makings of a serial killer. I wonder if many people don't wonder if they have the capability to do this.

    Anyway it led to some good fact-finding on his part and a couple of interesting conversations between us about some things which were troubling him. Probably also a sense of relief on his part.

    It's possible that Dahmer had a genetic predisposition. And if so my thoughts about his father are deeply sympathetic. Imagine!

    Still I like to search for ideas about the generating factors. And, as Ivy says, it depends on a combination of those.

    Here's fodder for the conversation:

    The guy who wrote The Black Dahlia Avenger, Steve Hodel.

    He used to be in police work and claimed that he had figured out that his father had been the man who killed The Black Dahlia, Beth Short.

    Did anyone read this? Hah. Freud would have had a heyday.

    I saw about that guy on Most Evil. (Cool show, though they reuse the same material a lot.) He makes a pretty good case for his dad being the guy who killed her.
