Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A bizarre, rambling suicide note left behind by a man who police say killed his father in front of a handful of students in a Wyoming community college classroom extols eugenics and blames his father for the genes he said caused him to have Asperger’s syndrome.
Christopher Krumm wrote he was unable to keep a job or have a love life, and always subsisted as a “bottom feeder.”
Police say the 25-year-old Krumm shot his father with an arrow at Casper College last month. They say he then stabbed his father and himself. Authorities say earlier that morning Krumm fatally stabbed his father’s girlfriend.
The note confirms a motive suggested by people close to Krumm in the immediate aftermath of the slayings.
Asperger’s is not typically associated with violent behavior.
Casper police released the note Wednesday after The Associated Press filed a records request.

40 years ago the Apollo 8 mission flew up to the moon, orbited it ten times and then returned to Earth. This picture was taken from that flight and shows the Earth as it seemingly rises in similar fashion to a sunrise.
Sunrise from Expedition 36
NASA Flight Engineer Karen L. Nyberg of Expedition 36 took this photo of the sun rising -- a sight they saw nearly 16 times per day due to the speed of the International Space Station's orbit around the earth.
