"What have you done Mark David Chapman?"

...well, apparently you didn't kill John Lennon!

According to a van I drove by on US 19 this morning, John Lennon was killed by ... wait for it ... Stephen King.

This white van seemed very intent on spreading the word to the masses, what with the black lettering covering it saying "Stephen King Killed John Lennon" and pointing to its website, which I won't dignify with naming or linking to. So just in case anyone doubted there are some seriously crazy people in this world, there you have it. (Now I know why they call US 19 the most dangerous road in America.)

Speculation as to what Stephen King's motive could have possibly been, as well as why he would have then apparently hired a guy named Mark David Chapman to stand over Lennon's body reading from The Catcher in the Rye until he was apprehended, may be placed in the comments.

"Instant karma's gonna get you..."
- John Lennon, Instant Karma

See, Lennon had a supernatural power that, when combined with the destructive power of Yoko Ono's voice, was going to destroy the world unless King himself stopped him...

Wow. Is the amount of crazy in the world increasing with time, or are we just becoming more sensitive to it?

Whatever King's reason, I'm sure it started off really spooky and mysterious and supernatural, but then he didn't know how to end it so resorted to bloodshed.

How can you not link to it? You're like Werner Herzog in Grizzly Man.

Honestly, I don't remember the website. It was something like lennonmurder.com. Feel free to check it if you like.

There's crazy....and then there's diagnosed mental illness. I think we're dealing with the latter in this case.

Let this be an obvious lesson to y'all - one can be mentally ill and still create a website.

Ben, I think this blog perfectly proves that theory.

If I were to wager a guess at why, I’d say that users don’t “browse” forms. The interaction style users engage in with forms is different, and requires its own study and design best practices.
