Self confessed mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik raises his fist in a right wing salute on arrival court room 250 at Oslo central court on August 24, 2012 to be sentenced for his twin attacks last year that left 77 people dead, bringing to a close one of the most spectacular trials in Norway's history. Breivik has admitted killing 77 people in the attacks that traumatised Norway and shocked the world, claiming eight victims in an Oslo blast and taking 69 more lives, mostly teenagers', in a shooting frenzy at an island summer camp.

Norwegian mass-murderer and all-around monster Anders Breivik, the right-wing extremist responsible for killing 77 people, mostly teenagers, in 2011, has somehow made himself more hateable. In a letter obtained by AFP, Breivik threatened to go on a hunger strike unless his Oslo prison, where he's serving the absurdly low maximum sentence of 21 years, eases its "torture." Among his requests: better video games, a new computer, and more money.

He also demanded the replacement of a PlayStation 2 game console with a more recent PS3 "with access to more adult games that I get to choose myself," as well as a sofa or armchair instead of a "painful" chair.

"Other inmates have access to adult games while I only have the right to play less interesting kids games. One example is 'Rayman Revolution,' a game aimed at three-year-olds," wrote the 35-year-old convicted killer. [...]

Breivik also wants his standard weekly allowance of 300 kroner ($49, or 36 euros) to be doubled, particularly to cover his postal charges for written correspondence. [...] Other demands include an end to daily physical searches at Ila prison and access to a PC rather than a "worthless typewriter with technology dating back to 1873."

This is where he lives. No, it is not a college dorm:

Calling himself a "political prisoner" and "human rights activist," Breivik wrote, "You've put me in hell ... and I won't manage to survive that long. You are killing me ... If I die, all of Europe's right-wing extremists will know exactly who it was that tortured me to death." Maybe let him starve?
