Could people stop saying 'RIP'? It's not only the laziest virtue signaling you can do, it shows a complete lack of independent thinking, imagination
and knowledge of what humanity is, what happens after the body dies, etc. I don't want to REST after I am done with this incarnation, I am going to
travel, explore, create, socialize, cultivate myself, find hobbies and civilizations. Star Trek has NOTHING on me!
But no, it's always 'REST' and also in PEACE. Why can't I rest in 1980s soundtracks if I want to? Why do you force PEACE upon me?!
Anyway, I won't do this, I won't DISRESPECT the people that got free and are now living their dream life on the other side, I am going to - if
anything - wish them fun, excitement, creativity, happiness on multiple levels, wonderful explorations, spiritual insights, enlightenment! WHY wish
for 'REST'? Isn't that the most boring thing an entity can do? You don't even NEED rest when you don't have a heavy physical body anymore!
Of course, for balance and the law of fluctuation or something, you kinda need 'activity-rest-activity-rest'-type cycle, but why only wish one part of
it, why not AT LEAST wish for 'rest AND activity', 'peace AND excitement'?
In any case, I wouldn't call people that get out of this crazy world 'victims', but 'lucky bstrds'.
Anyways, can 'two people dead, 20 injured' - meaning, 22 people - be called a 'mass'?
So weapons of MASS destruction means something capable of killing 22 people?
I think 'mass shooting' would require an actual MASS of people to be hit by bullets. Not just a handful (well, cosmically speaking).
Someone goes to a CONCERT - usually these are packed with people, 'thousands' would not be an exaggeration - and they're able to only kill two and
What kind of a loser is this? I mean, a bumbling fool with Ernest P. Worrell's intellectual capacity should be able to kill at least hundreds purely
by ACCIDENT, let alone if someone really goes to shoot people in a concert.. _HOW_ do you manage to have a 'victim' count so low in a concert?
It's like shooting fish in a barrel filled to the brim with fish, and managing to wound five and kill one. How?
I am always disappointed when I read these 'shocking mass deaths', it's always just a few people. I am waiting for a hundred thousand or million
people to die in some event. Then I'd at least have hope that it could happen to me, too.
But no, it's always just a few. Do these news people even know how many people die JUST from starvation every day? It's gotta be at least a hundred
thousand. But for some reason, that's never news - no, five people dying in some concert is more newsworthy.
How many people die every day?
We all have a time to go, dying is not a tradegy, stop making it news. I mean, think of it this way; would you rather die after staring at the
ceiling, immobile for 20 years, listening to a machine beep and have nothing to do, because your body is mostly paralyzed, or would you rather die in
the prime of 'your life' in some concert or while a controlled demolition explodes the building around and under you?
I'd rather die in a spectacle than hospital bed.. oh well, maybe it's just me.
