Does anyone remember that website that did an analysis of similarities between Eric Harris and Calvin?

What is linked in my post above is an immensely interesting site that I strongly recommend. I came across it in 2005-2006, and couldn't stop re-reading it.

It presents an incredibly unique view of Eric and Dylan. The individual who created the site and wrote all of the pieces contained within is also the author of The Strangeness of Columbine: An Interpretation.

I haven't had the time to complete the book, unfortunately, but I hope to very soon.

Yes, very interesting site. Really fascinating stuff.

Just finished the whole book ''The Strangeness of Columbine''. The book itself IS strange! Smile 
It makes all kinds of connections between apparently unrelated events, but put together, the symbolism and the surreal nature of Columbine facts are uncanny. He'll analyze together the journals of Dylan and Rachel Scott, Eric's views on nature and natural selection, makes paralells to Calvin & Hobbes, the Sand Creek massacre of 1864 and to The Shining by Stephen King. Yep, he goes very far and sometimes you don't know exactly where he's going but he gets places.

If your thinking is more mechanistic, more scientific, the book could be unpalatable, far-fetched. But if you enjoy symbolism, surrealism, magic(k)al thinking, you'll like this.

The author of the book doesn't make any definitive conclusion but let's you draw yours as to the interconnection of everything. The implications of it all are troubling and metaphysical in scope.

Going through my reading notes now, just writing stuff down.
