Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh and World Trade Center bomber Ramzi Yousef became friends in the late 1990s, when the men were held in nearby cells at the federal supermax prison, outside Florence, Colo. After McVeigh was executed in 2001, Yousef said he’d never known “anyone in my life who has so similar a personality to my own as his.”

Hooked.

Thoughts?

Half a hit for me - after having been introduced to it recently, I’m still ruminating over the concepts of immortality projects and terror management theory. Admittedly, I haven’t been able to read Becker’s work so I have no rigorous insight yet. That having been said, my recent thinking has been informed by Wojick’s The End of the World as We Know It, which seems to support the immortality project concept.
