Is anybody else feeling guilty about feeling joy at somebody else's killing? Weird. Wonder how I am going to explain the celebrations to the kids.

Yeah, I felt just a little bad, but then I stopped being a wuss and started being awesome.

Bin Laden was hiding out a couple hundred yards away from away from a Pakistani military academy.

Not guilty, just weird. I'm not overjoyed about anyone dying, no matter how bad, to be fair... although I'm glad Bin Laden got what was coming to him (72 virgins :-b).

I found the celebrations hilarious.

Dude, I'm still doing fist pumps and everytime someone mentions it, I'm going to high-five them. OBL is on a whole different level. I don't think anyone else's death would bring joy to my heart.

Man, because there was apparently a firefight at a mansion, I keep on imagining the climactic gunfight from Beverly Hills Cop, except instead of Victor Maitland it's Osama bin Laden. :-?
