| I've finally managed to get passed the hall monitors. I went into the cafeteria in which we planted bombs by a vending machine and underneath a table. We head out to gear up. In this scene, Eric and Dylan speak of how much they hate the people around them and wished that they could kill them all. While I do see the pressures these boys face, to me, they are warped. It seems that everything irritates them to no end regardless of how minor it is. They even find people pestering them to be healthy are so annoying that they should die. Beneath all this you can see that the boys from early on began to believe that there wasn't much that they could make out of their lives. During an earlier flash back, Dylan, even though he was accepted to study computer science at a university, still thinks that there isn't anything for him in life. He says that he got accepted into the university, but it doesn't really matter. Eric mentions that he planned to go out for the marines because of his father. The boys overall seem hopeless. After gearing up, they head back to the school. On their way they run into someone who they tell to go home. Had I not researched this a couple of years ago, I wouldn't have known that was one of their friends. He is the only one they spare as they now (or rather I) begin to kill the students and faculty around me. The students are all grouped by high school social classes: preppy girl, jock, nerdy boy, etc. I remember reading a while ago, that during the shooting, Eric and Dylan yelled out to the students, referring to them by their high school social class. Saying things like "All jocks, stand up," so that they could shoot them down.
