Is this really a random act?

An Austrian man, as you are probably all aware of, locked up his daughter in the basement, fathered seven children with her, and kept her and most of them locked up ever since – in the case of the “young woman” for 24 years.

If you’ve lived under a rock, you can read details about the story on the BBC News website.

This is the kind of sick, twisted, methodical evil that I will never be able to understand. I guess I can see how a father may lose his mind and rape his own daughter, as sick as that is, but what kind of deranged stupidity does it take to actually build a dungeon and lock up your daughter in it for 24 years?

Life is funny. Every time I am depressed like there’s no tomorrow, it proves me that other people are far, far worse off.
