Random acts of evil

Random act of evil in Vancouver a few days ago: woman attacks another woman with acid for no apparent reason.

Now another woman, this time in Arizona, has been attacked by having acid thrown in her face.

The acid involved (at least, in the first attack) has an acidity of 1, which is the worst kind. Like battery acid.

As a woman who often feels vulnerable while out in public, I must say that these stories hit close to home. For some reason, when I read about "random" attacks like this one, I often think I will be next. I'm so lucky that this hasn't happened to me yet. Notice, though, that I said "yet". *sighs*

And evidently, in the Washington state attack, the victim's brand new pair of sunglasses spared her eyesight. Makes me want to consider covering my eyes at all times - like getting Transitions lenses or something.

It's scary.

I do not envy humans sometimes.

Battery acid on my skin is unpleasant and oily and makes some of the hair brittle. I didn't realize that these attacks were not with something like nitric or phosphoric.

Wow, battery acid doesn't burn you?

Nope.

Neither does dry ice or bleach.

I'm resistant to burns too. Not fire proof, but hard to burn.

The specific acid wasn't mentioned. Just that it had a pH of 1. There was a passing reference to phosphoric in the background of one interview.

Scarier was that early interviews had the victim saying that the woman initially asked if she'd like a drink. Then threw it in her face when she declined.

Now it's been revealed that the first attack was FAKED. I feel like such a fool for believing the whole thing and OMG am I PISSED.

Well, the first attack was fake. No word on the second attack.
