He watched a movie called Chimpanzee (could be wrong, maybe it's another movie).

I wouldn't be surprised, Chimpanzee suits him perfectly.


But he would settle for hunter gatherer lmaoo

He probably never drove anywhere though, except for the recon mission the day before.
It's a myth that Adam never left his house. It would probably be more accurate to say that he went through periods where he went out regularly (regularly for someone who doesn't go out much, not regularly for someone who has a typical life, with a job or attending school and spending lots of time with friends) and other periods where he rarely left or didn't leave the house at all.

There are GPS records in the Sandy Hook documents that tracked his trips away from home so we have an idea of the (minimum) number of trips that Adam took between his last birthday on April 23, 2012 and December 13, 2012. We can't say for certain that these represent every trip he took in this time frame because he didn't bring the GPS with him on the day of his death so we know that he was capable of navigating on his own.

For the first couple of months (through May and June of 2012), Adam logged a trip about once or twice a week. After that, he cut off contact with his only real life friend and went through a long period of barely leaving home at all (if we rely on the GPS data for confirmation). He logged one trip in July and one in early August and then there were no more GPS records for about three and a half months. This lines up with his mother's statement that Adam locked himself in his room for three months over the summer of 2012, which is why I believe that the GPS records are a generally reliable gauge of his driving activity. Nancy was very worried about Adam during this period of time though, so I would suggest that this may have been one of the longest periods of withdrawal.

There were only two trips after that, including one in November and one on the day before his massacre.

We also know that he was driving regularly before that. He was going to the theater in Danbury from at least early 2011. He had gained the nickname "DDR Guy," and was recognizable to those who frequented the theater, by April 2011. Adam was playing DDR with a couple of other people for hours every weekend for most of that year, starting with DDR sessions that were about four hours long and later in the summer, increasing these sessions to eight or ten hours at a time. We know for certain that there was another one of these periods of withdrawal, which happened toward the end of 2011. An employee at the theater said that there was a snowstorm and he didn't see Adam for about a month. When he came back in February of the next year, he no longer played DDR with others. Based on witnesses from the theater, we can assume that he was driving to the theater every weekend (Friday through Sunday) for some of 2012, most or all of 2011 and maybe in late 2010, aside from the periods when he did not leave his house.

In short, Adam had a lot of experience with driving. cyclops

His birthday was the 22nd.

He watched a movie called Chimpanzee (could be wrong, maybe it's another movie).
I wouldn't be surprised, Chimpanzee suits him perfectly.
I also want to add (looking back on my post about Adam's driving habits, it doesn't seem clear) that not all of the trips that I mentioned were trips to the Danbury theater. I'm not sure if I made it confusing by writing the second paragraph, which was strictly about Adam's visits to the theater since we have no concrete records before 2012. If you want to read an in-depth analysis of all of the recorded trips, you can check out Reed Coleman's blog.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
This also explains why Coleman thinks that he may have watched the movie Chimpanzee so it would serve more than one purpose to read it. It's not confirmed that he watched this movie in a theater but it's a possibility.

In terms of watching movies at theaters, his friend specifically mentioned that they drove to a Bedford, NY theater to watch a documentary on circuses but it's likely that they did go to movies together on occasion because he also talked about watching horror movies with Adam. He said that they watched the remake of The Thing together. This movie came out in 2011, so it's possible that they watched it together at the theater. It's also possible that they watched it together at the friend's house because the statement suggests that they watched and discussed several older movies together (including the original The Thing). They probably also watched some of the films on Adam's list of favorites because he mentioned that Adam preferred psychological horror to gory and violent "mainstream" horror and also said that Adam liked older B-movies but he didn't offer any more specifics aside from Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer and Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Yes, I edited that part and I kind of misstated what I was trying to say by leaving out some words. The first trip recorded on his GPS was the day after his last birthday and the final trip was recorded the day before his death, meaning that each trip logged was between the day of his last birthday and the day of his death. I thought it might be relevant that the GPS was cleared that day, which is why I mentioned it. But thanks for letting me know what day his birthday was. What a Face

Figured I had to, since you go out of your way to correct everyone else. And no need to thank me, just don't misstate yourself next time like a moron and I won't have to. It's even better when a moron is sarcastic and rude like you.

I have no doubt in my mind that Adam considered the high school he used to go to as a potential target for his attack. He also knew however that it would be far harder for a mass shooting to be as deadly or succeed for him if he chose the high school since the high schoolers would be more likely to fight back or run instead of cower.

I don't think he had such a clear and ideological motive. I think the only purpose was to murder, even though he had an opinion on society, and then he made decisions to make his plan easier, not to spread a message.

Nah I personally think he ot a kick out of being repulsive and rebelled against the concept of society and what was deemed the worst crime possible on a big scale

I think Adam identified with one of the characters in my film. A guy who wanted to be happy and normal like others in the "outside" world, but couldn't. His anger and frustration grew until he saw suicide as the way out. A sad end to a sad life - deep down that's what it was to him.

The muder for him was, to borrow an expression from Milan Kundera "a categorical disagreement with being" (even though Adam would probably not use these terms to describe it).

He did, he posted about it on SBB, here's one where he praises it. You can find the other ones on here:

Well, I'm not sure what the appropriate response here should be. I want to congratulate Sabratha for making a school shooting movie so well that a real life shooter considered it "excellent", but I think that might not be a good thing to say, so I think all I'm going to do is apologize for doubting them.

I had the exact same reaction, I wanted to reply but when in doubt, I preferred to say nothing, also because I don't know how Sabratha is with Adam having liked and praised her movie. I still have to watch this movie, it seems great!
