    There's a lot of reasons why people become serial killers, and with your skills I hope you never find one of those reasons.

    So are you saying you would kill quickly and with very little pain? Somehow I thought you would like to make those you considered stupid to suffer a bit more.

    One thing I learnt long ago is that you can never make another understand exactly the pain they put others through.
    Plus, of course, there'd always be the possibility that deliberately prolonging their suffering would dehumanise me over time.
    And who'd want an unfeeling unsympathetic serial killer around?
    I suspect that it would make getting a date difficult for me.

    Some serial killers are married with children (example: Dexter). You just have to keep your moonlighting exploits to yourself.

    I think you might be right. I remember reading somewhere that said the number of serial killers could be calculated based on population and that the culture played a very small part in determining the total number of serial killers.

    Come on now, killing is serious business and a valid topic of discussion.

    Yeah, you can look it up in a search. Anyway, you must have some comparable enforcement organization over in the U.K?

    The police!
    Since each county in the country is (supposedly) answerable to the government and crown the law is the law throughout the country, therefore there's no need for federal organisation (this, based on what little I know of the FBI).

    Actually Scotland Yard has an intelligence function, but that's more of an office that runs things rather a full organisation with manpower to move in and take over cases. (AFAIK).

    Scotland Yard, I had forgotten about them, but I suppose they could direct the police if they thought it was needed. But I'm not worried, I'm pretty sure the moderators would take out the thread before FBI involvement was needed.

    I have often told my husband "If I were a serial killer, I would kill the woman in that house" We will be out driving, the house catches my eye and I say "dead". He knows what I am talking about.

    or incredibly annoying Australian know-it-alls. I can see people here taking a trip for that.

    In regards to categories ...
    (source)

    Also, why are such perps called "killers", when what they do is obviously murder, making them "murderers" instead? In contrast, people who commit justifiable (or other) homicide (soldiers, police, executioners, acts of self defense, acts of manslaughter, etc) are merely killers.

    Why don't governments and other collectors/publishers of mortality statistics include suicides in the broader category of homicides? For example, according to the American CDC, some yearly statistics: Homicides = 18,361, and Suicides = 34,598.

    Your the last person I would have suspected of having that fantasy. But why the women? You know how serial killers pick their nick names, like the zodiac killer or jack the ripper. Cool names, but what would you visualize your headline as being? Maybe something like the house wife killer.
