My old grandad kept his family (8 kids) going on milk pobs at one time.

I think you're baiting but I work at one on weekends(so I know first hand) and I can tell you now, there's no 'one type' of person who uses a food bank.

Didn't say it for props at all btw.
Ive just got knowledge of it from doi g it. It's been a huge eye opener for me the past year since we've been doing it. It really isn't one size fits all. The biggest shock for me was seeing someone I used to work with(who's still in work) having to use it.

I don't know if you working for the Mail is cause or effect, but it seems like a match made in heaven.

You even use your posts on here as bait Laughing out loud

Wasn't meant as an insult, there's a reason why the Mail is the most popular paper on the web

The whole 'terrorism' angle seems like it shifts focus away from failed (underfunded) public services. Clearly the guy was on a spiral of mental illness and then gets radicalised on MGTOW/Incel forums, if there was decent mental health protections in place then this whole thing could have been avoided.

When did this become a thing? So a bunch of guys that are just useless at chatting to girls decide something is wrong with the world and people have to die ?

If you wanna get morbid or are curious about how people end up there you can read his reddit comment history:

https://www.reddit.com/user/Jake3572

It's really depressing, but reading back through it you get the understanding that this was a guy that basically ended up obsessing over being ugly, having low testosterone, being autistic, self pity, etc then becoming really interested in guns, zombie survival and making weird comments on porn.

Ultimately the digital world lets people come together around common interests and they push people into more hardcore mindsets - like how we all think its not abnormal to drop a grand on some Visvim neckerchief thats been hand-woven by mongolian sheep herders and dip dyed in crushed beetle soup. With more vulnerable people the communities they end up in push them into crazy headspaces - look at ISIS brides as another example.

Clearly some of these communities aren't healthy and are radicalising these type of outcasts - which is why mental health needs to catch them before alwful shit happens.
