Local man Dave Henderson decided he’d had enough of the stress-inducing news cycle and opted for the soothing embrace of a good old serial killer documentary. Because, let’s face it, nothing says “relaxation” quite like delving into the disturbed minds of society’s most notorious criminals.

As the world around him buzzed with headlines of chaos, political intrigue, and inexplicable cat videos, Dave made the courageous decision to unplug from the 24/7 news circus. Instead, he embarked on a journey of tranquility by immersing himself in tales of real-life horror that somehow felt less distressing than the latest Twitter trends.

“I just needed a break from the constant bombardment of reality,” Dave explained, settling into his couch with a bowl of popcorn and a documentary titled “Chainsaws and Chill: A Serial Killer Saga.”

Many might find Dave’s choice perplexing, but in a world where headlines are scarier than horror movies, he might be onto something. Why worry about political turmoil and economic uncertainties when you can ponder the motivations of a guy who collects toenails in a jar?

Dave’s friends were initially concerned about his documentary choices, but after realizing that it was either this or another round of endless debates on social media, they reluctantly respected his commitment to mental well-being.

“I used to think I was informed by watching the news,” said Dave, his eyes fixed on the screen. “But now, I realize I can be just as informed by wondering how a person becomes a professional taxidermist for small animals.”

So, as Dave escapes the real horrors of the world through the lens of true crime, one can’t help but admire his audacious approach to relaxation. After all, who needs the latest breaking news when you can unravel the twisted tales of those who have broken bad in ways that defy even the wildest imagination?
