One minute, people are making fun of goths (Goths Against Hatred, to be specific), and that's ok. The next thing you know people are trying to "discuss" goths, and what was funny mere minutes ago is suddenly very, very, very.... fucking sad. So many things about goths that make other goths snicker, when filtered through strange eyes, do not reflect well. I'm not normally shaken by frank exposure. I'm not even normally bothered by the idea of people who are not exactly people. Something about this bugged me though, a lot. Something about the susceptibility of people who take what they're shown at face value, and judge based on that, perhaps. I wanted to shout, "No, that's not cool, that's hysterical! It's a big fucking lie, just for people dumb enough to react like you are, and the way you're actually eatting it all up is really not funnny anymore! Stop ruining the humour value of half-wit lamers!"

Just as sad, but much more smiley..

3:39 p.m. EDT June 13, 2002 - A section of Interstate 75 in Detroit was closed Wednesday night as police investigated a call about two men dressed in ninja suits.

Detroit police received a 911 call around 8 p.m. from a concerned man who said that he saw the men along I-75 in Detroit. They were driving a Ford Escort and appeared to be pointing a gun out the window, Local 4 reported.

Police caught the men on surveillance video from a squad car.

"You have two people out in broad daylight in full ninja suits, who you believe have a firearm in the vehicle, and the passenger appeared to be waving out the car at us when we were behind them," Michigan State Police Trooper Paul Gonyeau said.

Michigan State Police and Detroit Police were able to pull the men over. The freeway was closed while police investigated.

The two men -- ages 20 and 21 -- were from Gaylord and told police that they had just bought the ninja gear and were on their way downriver to surprise their family, the station reported.

Officers found a sword, but no gun. Police arrested the men, but they were later released without charges, the station learned.
