I'm referring to those men with the middle name "Wayne".
Years ago, when one of my good friends was dating guys she met on-line, willy nilly, left and right, I constantly warned her of clues to look for in the event they were serial killers in disguise.
"He seems like a nice guy" she'd say after talking to him for oh, about 5 minutes. Apparently her requirements for dating someone from the 'net were far less stringent than mine. But I mean, even Jeffrey Dahmer's neighbors in describing him probably said "well, he seemed like a nice quiet young man."
But I was concerned. And I would request that she'd get certain info from them and pass it along to me. So, in the event that she suddenly disappeared, I'd have something, anything, to report to the police. Because well, "I'm a safety girl."
I asked for their phone number, address, the usual stuff. And I'd also ask her to find out their middle name. Just to be sure it wasn't "Wayne".
Why "Wayne" you ask? Well apparently some of the most heinous murderers share that middle name. You can read about it here, on NEWS of the WEIRD.
And why am I mentioning this now? Well, on the same site, the list was recently updated.
