http://www.smh.com.au/world/fear-of...precise-fourday-intervals-20120320-1vge3.html I want to start by saying this guy is a horrible bastard and I hope that they catch him quickly. However, the reason I'm starting this thread is that this little bastard stole the idea for a book I had! Although I had no intention to write it. My idea was a serial killer who targets scooter riders with a sniper rifle. The police would be baffled by his motives and come up with all sorts of theories. But the real motives were simply that the name "Scooter Shooter" would be catchy and gain world wide media attention and as a serial killer the attention is what he craved. I'd already developed my main characters, including the clever detective who works out his motives. And I must admit I spend far too much time thinking about 'cover' when I'm riding my scooter. I'm a little annoyed that I can't write my book now but far more scared that my ideas are the same as a serial killer. I'm wondering if this is enough reason to go visit a psychotherapist. I want to call up the French police and tell them his motives although I don't think they would much care about the theories of some dude in Australia.
