Shock horror: Bin Laden was a human being!
Also, are these typos in the first line?
No, they are not. Both "ibn" and "bin" are transliterations of the Arabic "ابن", which means "son" or "son of." "Ibn" is typically used when writing a name, but "bin" is a popular colloquialism because it's easier to say than "ibben". Thus "Usama ibn Mohammed ibn Awad ibn Ladin" is "Usama son of Mohammed son of Awad son of Ladin," and the proper written form - but everyone calls him Osama bin Laden, so the article does too.
(Fun fact: the original protagonist in the Assassin's Creed series is Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad, which literally means "Altair, son of No-One." In case you're wondering why it's "Ibn-" and not "ibn", that's 'cos there's actually no official, standardised way to transliterate Arabic into English - it's all just "do what you like so long as someone's got a chance of understanding you." This is also why the CIA refers to Usama Bin Ladin and everyone else refers to Osama bin Laden. See, my youth in an Arabic-speaking nation was not wasted!)
"The There Musketeers"
There, no, over there!
That, on the other hand, is a typo. I'll go fix, ta!
Genuinely thought these were typos - thanks for the clarification and the interesting knowledge dump!
And this is why the likes of the BBC have reams upon reams of style guide to deal with stuff like this.
So has anyone figured out what genre of anime he was big on?
Was it... harem anime?
Maybe he wanted to be the pirate king.
Apparently Detective Conan, Naruto, Bleach, and adaptations of Devil May Cry and Street Fighter.
The real tragedy is that he never got to find out ho Naruto ended.
Wait for Naruto ending? Surprised he didn't die of boredom before the Marines got to him then.
Just goes to show: he may have been a religious fundamentalist psychopath responsible for the death of thousands of innocents, but he wasn't all bad.
Maybe he texted them his address himself: "Kill me please. I can't stand watching this crap any longer".
He watched dubs, the man is a monster.
OK, that's just wrong. He got what was coming to him.
I wouldn't want to die and have someone find DevilMayCry on my pc. If he was enough of an animal to watch dubs, he probably watched them through ITunes too. Maybe the CIA will release a screenshot of the times viewed/played counter for his hentai.
Apparently he watched Bible Black. It's like the memes are coming to life.
Separate names with a comma.
