RealAmericanHero: I used to come here for fun and thought laughing at tragedy was a natural way to live...Now I'm just sort of wondering how the fark this world keeps going when the most civilized of us can only cope with tragedy with laughter.


What few details are in the article suggest a short and very unhappy life. Not even so easy to laugh. Not without changing the subject a bit.

Obligatory:

Faced with having to watch Twilight, I'd start drinking heavily too.

You see that's interesting right there. To me at least. What kind of liquor, is it skewed toward something? And does this homeless guy sitting there seem to make sense to you in your experience? In that film in particular or do you think he was randomly at that one?

Man, I'd so sit and have a beer with you over this.

LtDarkstar: SUBBY = STUPID

That is NOT the latest Twilight movie, thanks for the old news dumbass.

/And here people make fun of Twilight fans for being stupid
//Subby proved Twilight fans to be smarter than he/she is


Twilight isn't the news here, Dumbass, a man died.

Wait, did you actually think knowing when each Twilight movie came out was gonna somehow make you look smart here?

OMG, you did. That's just adorable.

Deedeemarz: That story seems off. Not even the Twilight part (as sad as that is), but a known alcoholic dying with a BAC of 0.57? And a Kiwi, aged 23? That just doesn't seem like a high enough level to kill a person who is a chronic drinker. We see levels that high frequently in alcoholics; unless it is a binge drinker they usually don't even suffer many effects-they just sleep it off and head back out for more. Strange story.


Which might suggest that the alcohol was not entirely responsible for ending his life. The most reasonable conclusion is then that it was the movie which ultimately killed him.

Charlton Heston predicted we'd have Euthanasia Chambers.


But THIS is the best we've done so far?

Maybe I should start drinking Johnny Walker Red then if it'll kill me quicker. But I'd rather watch something interesting during it, like paint growing or grass drying.

Anastacya: Laughing in itself could be considered a form of hardening your heart.


True enuff.

Lord knows it's how I survived until I was able to get away from my abusive husband. There is a certain satisfaction knowing that you are going to get the shiat beat out of you regardless of what you say, so you just take the lowest shot possible. Laughing in the face of imminent harm is not my claim to intelligence, either.

/face still hurts, two years later


Points well and painfully made.

Sad story, Sis.

Hope you are in a better place now.

I'm kind of a perpetual smartass, which I recognize as a coping mechanism for dealing with life's insanity. My smart mouth gets my dumb ass in more trouble than I could tell you about most days. It also gets me out of trouble. I like to joke sometimes that I spend half my time digging my own grave with my mouth and the other half backfilling the hole.

End of the day I still think it's better to be a smartass with a sense of humour than a dumbass without one. ^_^

Be Well.

quatchi: RealAmericanHero: I used to come here for fun and thought laughing at tragedy was a natural way to live...

If you don't learn how to laugh at life's horrors the only other remaining options are crying your eyes out or hardening your heart to inhuman levels.

None are truly good options, of course, but laughing is clearly the best.

The Charlton Heston chamber is kind of nice though. I wonder if that sunset was what he saw right before they pried the gun from his cold, dead hands.

Every time someone watches a Twilight movie, somewhere, a book dies.
