I actually thought Weise's was the more "Holy crap, did he just do that?" of the two. He was literally head hunting. Whereas I can't imagine Kassian meant to do what he did. I think he got careless, and that was compounded by frustration and what not. Sort of a "Oh, maybe I hit someone with my stick, but I don't really care. Besides, what are the od--OH s***!!!"
"If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!" - Kierkegaard
