Those who knew gunman return to classes:
Not only was Cho Seung-Hui an anti-social, selfish, cowardly, loser he was also delusional, or a pathological liar.
Koch remembers taking Cho out to some parties at the start of the fall semester in 2005. He introduced Cho to friends, but the sullen roommate didn’t say much. At one party, Cho did get tipsy enough that he opened up and began talking about his virtual love life.
He said he had an imaginary girlfriend named Jelly, and that she was “a supermodel that lived in space.” Jelly had a nickname for Cho — Spanky.
Once, Koch knocked on Cho’s door looking for his roommate, John. The door was locked, and Seung wouldn’t open it up.
“I’m in here with my girlfriend and we’re making out,” he said.
“Who says that kind of stuff?” the junior from Richmond asked.
A couple months later during Thanksgiving break, Koch’s phone rang. It was Cho.
“I didn’t know why he called, and I was like ‘What’s up.’ He goes, ‘I’m vacationing with Vladimir Putin. I was like, ‘Really? I think he lives in Russia.’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, we’re in North Carolina.’ I’m like, ‘I’m pretty sure that’s not possible Seung.”‘
I think we all know a guy like this. Someone who tries to hard and ends up pushing people further away from him.
Cho didn’t hate the so-called rich kids. He wanted to be one so bad it hurt. And when they didn’t accept him his stalker mentality kicked in. If they won’t be friends with me they won’t be friends with anyone.
Not everyone has to accept you as a friend. That’s the way the real world works.
As always it was your pleasure.
