Teens Beat To Death 81-Year-Old Man Attending Granddaughter’s Wedding

This is one of the saddest stories of the year. George Leroy Baker III, 81, left Tempe, Arizona to celebrate his granddaughter’s wedding in Lynchburg, Virginia. Walking across the street to a diner from his hotel, some teens allegedly beat him to death for fun.

The three teenagers were walking down the street when one allegedly said he would beat the first person he met — to impress a girl. Baker walked right into the dare and died for it.

The teens included two 16-year-olds and a thirteen-year-old. They have been charged with murder but their names have been withheld.

Baker appears to have been a wonderful father and his family must now deal with this tragedy at what should have been one of the happiest times for the family.

    you say

    … after all they all went to dinner at the same time and one of ‘em was seriously trashed last night

    how could you tell? did I have gravy on my writing? what a dumb ass – just because you say something, don’t make it so

    You are of course and as usual so far off base as to be on another continent (presumably somewhere near Wales)

    you keep takin the medication an I’ll keep takin mine.

    “It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes” – or even onions

    good luck with that



    so bud takes his references from Wikipedia?

    Laff my ass off

    Merriam Webster and Wikipedia doth not an intellectaul make

    Vogons. Teen-aged Vogons.

    (just in case you haven’t read the book)

    and then predictably goes on to post a link for what is reckoned to be one of the best works of comedic writing of the 20th century and like the true pimple head he is, arrogantly assumes because he has just discovered it, that no-one else has neither

    git ur nose out of that dictionary son and read some real books

    queue: long list of books that bud has read, carefully listed from one site or another

    Im amazed that you have read it bud, Adams was another Brit wasn’t he

    For a moment, deep in Buddhas head, nothing happened. Then, after a second or so, nothing continued to happen.

    The “Whale” thing was intentional but I was trying to hook a troll

    ROFLMAO, what a dish of crap, theres only one person comin on here leavin crumbs for the purile to pick up and it aint you

    Hungary *snicker*

    “Sorry about the “Whales ” thing … no real excuse for that blooper”

    You should be apologising as well

    Yes there is an excuse , it’s being a psuedo intellectual who don’t know the difference tween a big ol fish with a blowhole an a country

  6. Woolly saya

    ok, this makes me angry…

    …these nasty little teen troll turds think that logic=guy.

    nasty buttscootin turdmuffins crawl back into your cells where you belong

    [and as far as the self indulgent nonsense goes…you keep on eatin the nasties you dish out won’t you….I’ll be checkin the Enquirer for pictures of the first certifiable turd with human appendages…]

    Look in the mirror son, job done, I always knew they could pile shit high, but how do they get you to speak? is it all done with wires or what?


  7. Blouise

    Bet you were never tasked to the SITE ….

    Blousies bin readin up some

    If you appreciated what u were sayin instead of just repeating crap you read somewhere like some animated horse, then I’d take you seruiously, but you don’t and you do and I don’t

    you keep on readin and I’ll jus keep on makin it up as I go along

    Sweet dreams are made of this
    and who am I to disagree
    I’ve travelled the world
    and the seven seas
    Everybodies lookin for sumthin

    Good luck with that

  8. Buddha,

    It fits! Poor babies … pretend men tryin’ on daddy’s gear … well, the world will catch up with ’em soon enough … out of dad’s basement and tryin’ to make it on their own … doubtful that any one of them have the stuff to be a real Marine … hope they make it through the druggie stage …

    Good night, Buddha 😳 xo :mrgreen:

  9. I haven’t generated any fractals in some time. Since I natively run Linux, I may have to download Mandlebulber and give it a spin.

  10. W = ^. .^

    “I love the fractal thread…I’m trying to use Chaospro now tho it is not so much fun…the fractals are already there and all you can do is ‘doctor’ them up….I think. Mandlebulber downloaded but didn’t install well and I’m not such a ‘techie’ so my new toys will take some getting use to.”

    Mandlebulber didn’t seem to install properly for me at first either but it actually did. It presents three windows, a log window, an image window, a tabbed control window. I thought there was only supposed to be one window on the screen so I closed the log screen and it shut the program down. All three windows should be left open. Tabbed controls in one window, view in another and a log for the immediate commands in another- a function I imagine is very useful if put into a text file after each command and used to trace your steps over a long, complex generation. That function may be, or able to be, automated.

    I’m still exploring the tabs, one for choice of fractal, one for zoom and pan, one for formula modification; I’ve got a lot of work to do to figure it out but it does some really nice images. I’m still exploring the various types of fractal on the opening ‘type’ screen.

  11. Slarti,

    I thank you greatly for the answers to my questions. I would have to disrespect you and lie to say ‘yes, that explained everything, I understand’ so I won’t 🙂 I have put your answers/explanation posts into a text file to go back to because I need to study them more. What I do see, or begin to see, is relationships between certain functions and the underlying explanation of what is actually gong on mathematically.

    For instance: More iterations = less M-set (and more pretty colored pixels)

    More accuracy = more detail (and hence the ability to zoom deeper).”

    This summation coupled with the (immediately) previous explanation about iterations not necessarily keeping you in the m-set does (i believe) clear up one of my ‘problems’ with the Julia sets: I would zoom very deep (even into the ‘black holes where I thought there might be something interesting revealed revealed eventually,or, out in the hinterlands surrounding the outer edge of the image), kick up the iteration level beyond all reason, and attempt to toggle a Julia from it. It seldom worked. I gather now that I was possibly moving out of the M-set. As well as the other possibilities you listed I (believe) can see that my technique was flawed and why.

    I need to give these things more though in conjunction with your explanation.

    Your discussion of fractals being strange attractors, curves specified by recursive algorithms etc. was fun. I remember those types well though many of them were not ‘solid’ but generated in a line mode. They were fun to play with and could be lovely. I really enjoyed cultivating my fern and tree specimens. 🙂

    Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions
    Yes, I too enjoyed the ‘toggle’ function but it would play me false. Often when I would toggle one of the deep zoom, high iteration fractals I mentioned above my computer would freeze up as well as not generating a Julia. LOL.

  12. Honest to god, I never thought teenagers but once the Woost mentioned it … wham … of course … but to keep the conspiracy thing going … they could be paid teenagers … all sitting in the main dork’s basement working off wyfi … after all they all went to dinner at the same time and one of ’em was seriously trashed last night

    The “Whale” thing was intentional but I was trying to hook a troll … then I was afraid I might have insulted Woost, so apologized … the apology was sincere … oh what tangled webs etc.

    HenMan’s probably going to curse me … sending him to his room over a bunch of pimple-heads … the only thing going for me is milk and cookies … but I had a good time with the sarcasm … he’ll probably demand that for the next few days I post “HenMan is the most intelligent blogger on this blog” on every thread I visit

    blushing smiley is : then the letters oops followed by another : make certain there are no spaces between them and also make certain there is a space between your last letter and the first : … so if you do:oops: it won’t work but if you do 😳 it will … same for the green guy which I always send Buddha first : followed by mrgreen then a : … same rules

    no space won’t work:mrgreen: but will :mrgreen: work

    So I usually give Buddha a hug and a kiss — 😳 xo :mrgreen:

    I’m returning to my Fractals 💡 (idea inside the colons)

  13. ^..^ * (many) posted:


    Thought of in another way, 1 is halfway from zero to infinity (and I can prove it).”

    And I know just enough to know that if you approach 0 by half’s you are correct, though I couldn’t prove it mathematically.

    Once again, you’ve got the right idea. The real numbers between 0 and 1 can be put into a 1-to-1 correspondence with the real numbers between 1 and infinity via the function f(x) = 1/x. This proves that the two sets are the same size – i.e. 1 is halfway between 0 and infinity.

    “Sorry about the “Whales ” thing … no real excuse for that blooper”
    I thought ‘Whales’ was a typo, if not it went right over me…are you still fractalizing?

    ” Welt’s is what a whipping with a hickory stick left you with when I was a kid.”

    ~ that was exactly my point, Lottakatz, and I completely second the blushing smiley remark…;)

  15. LK,

    Torture may be a mild term. 😀


    Since you were so hard on HenMan, I’m sending him some of the special cookies.

    BIL, The infinity approximation effect as a direct corollary to the magnitude of troll infestation… LOL, it’s a thesis that deserves further study but the research would be torture. 🙂
