Something my teacher said

And I wish I could figure out a way to work it into a fan fiction piece. It's seriously dark-humored and warped as hell, but the class is on the Holocaust so things are going to be like that.
I'll put it behind a cut so I don't offend anyone who doesn't want to see this. 


 
We were discussing how many Jews died during WWII. The answer generally given is 6 million. Dr. Spence pointed out that this is generally agreed to be high and the more accurate number is probably 5.993 million. But he continued on to say that people will sit around and dispute this for days if you let them. A student raised his hand and asked if the point here wasn't the number, but the fact that there was obviously a large scale homicide/genocide occuring? Dr. Spence agreed and came up with the following example.

"You have a serial murderer/cannibal who kills and eats ten people. Then you have another serial murderer/cannibal who only kills and eats six people? Is the one who killed more the more violent/worst of the pair? How can you know that the one who killed less didn't just get a late start in crime? Or he was in prison for a time? Or maybe he's just a picky eater."


I think it'd have to go in a Criminal Minds piece, but I just can't work out who would say it.

i say that the 10pax eater has high metabolism rate hence he eats more often so maybe he's skinny and not easily spotted. he may look like anybody else with no signs of abnormality.

as for the 6pax eater, he's probably a fat ass hence his movements arent that fast and feels fuller after eating [maybe his stomach is 'compressed' by his fats]. also his kill probably are fat ass people too so they can 'last' longer.

haha morbid me.. csi overdosed.

I could so see Gideon saying that. But Reid would be my second choice if you want to put it in a Criminal Minds piece.

I also could so see Tony saying, "Maybe he's just a picky eater, Probie."...to McGee at a crime scene.

Re: Holmes
Actually, now that you mention it, can't you just see Reid saying it from the back of the room in that kinda off-hand manner he has and then everyone turning around to look at him??

Actually, the methodology and psychology behind the actions is typically what determines the "worst" of the two. Legally, there is no difference.
