I can't wrap my brain around the bronze age thinking that it's better to keep kill people who are attempting to learn than teach them.

What a world we live in where a kid can't be a kid anymore.

I saw one of the most beautiful teen girl on a talk show about tagging. Some angry uppity person stood up and asked her why she joined a gang. She started crying and said "Because they held a gun to my head."

I hope the people who are making all the money on corruption and violence in Pakistan enjoy what they're doing to the innocents. And I hope they're paying their share of money upstream. For their sakes.

Yeah lets have an atheist vs christian fight in a thread about a hero kid saving the lives of his classmates by sacrificing his own.

Don't be a dick.

Yeah. Props to you, Aitazaz; whatever comes next, may it give you a hero's welcome.
 
2014-01-09 01:33:50 PM  
My oldest son is nearly his age.  This shiat right here gets me in the feels.

Whatever they do to memorialize his memory won't be large enough.
 
2014-01-09 01:34:35 PM  
In spite of the trollish headline, yes this child is a hero.
 
2014-01-09 01:34:54 PM  
You would hope this is one of those last straw moments where it brings people together to get rid of these kinds of shiatbags. Sadly by the story the suicide bomber was also a kid...
 
2014-01-09 01:34:56 PM  
Sheesh, we just the hero tag for everything today. He knew what he was getting into when he signed up to be a teen boy in Pakistan. He was just doing his job.

2014-01-09 01:37:32 PM  
Hero indeed.  That word is bandied about so much these days, and like submitter said, this is one time the word truly applies.  It's too bad the world had to lose one like him to stop someone with nothing to offer but death and misery.

"... the bomber, dressed in a school uniform, asked him where the school was..."

So, a guy straps a bomb on himself to bomb a school and he doesn't even know where it is?

Read the story earlier, got mighty dusty in the room.

Hopefully stuff like this will make them go after the ratbags behind it all.

How about 72 sexually knowledgeable nymphomaniacs??

I mean, you're dead already...so you can survive it.
 
2014-01-09 01:43:39 PM  
I would like to think that I'd be brave enough to do something like this, if the situation necessitated it. I really would like to think that.

The reality is... I have no idea. And neither do you.

/kid's a hero

Now THIS is what this tag is for:

I read that as the tag is not used for heroic actions normally, not as an exclamation that this kid was a real hero.

A bunch of wildly insecure men gained power and had some worries.  First, they're worried their women will cheat on them.  So the women have to always be completely covered up so no other man will want them and if the women are even seen in public with a non-related male they're whores who need to be beaten and maybe executed.  Second, they're worried women might say no to them, so the women are traded and passed along as possessions.  "Will you go out with me" becomes "you will go out with me, I negotiated with your father for you."  This is now a wonderfully secure and happy society, if you're male.  Why on earth would any woman who knows better want to stick around for that crap?  They wouldn't, that's why they can never learn and be allowed to think for themselves.  Women thinking for themselves is a direct attack on their now secure society.

No, you're not.

Kid did a good thing and it would be nice if more people acted like he did.


I wish that more people wouldn't HAVE to act like he did. The senseless deaths that happen in the name of religion, well, in the name of anything; are completely unnecessary and ruining society. Not to diminish from his heroism, but it angers me more that he had to do that at all as opposed to the fact that he did.

Lady Indica: Hopefully stuff like this will make them go after the ratbags behind it all.


Drag the cleric right outta his mosque, huh? Yeah, that sounds likely :rolleyes:

Unless you mean "each side declare that the 'other team' was behind it and retaliate with suicide bombings." In which case, that's basically certain.
 
2014-01-09 01:48:15 PM

Oh, wow.   I'm not religious, but I'm also not opposed to truths expressed in religious texts, especially when beautifully expressed:

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. "  (KJV)

http://biblehub.com/john/15-13.htm

Go ahead and make jokes or troll in this thread... but there's nothing stopping you from posting something positive. (Or, if you must argue, argue which version of John 15:13 is your favorite.  You have my vote.)

I watch Salaam Bombay every so often. It's amazing what a little legislation, a little law-enforcement, a little cultural upheaval can do towards giving children a childhood instead of working them to death, leaving them to die unwanted, using them as sex toys, selling them...

Courtesy of Voltaire:

 God thinks all blacks are obsolete farm equipment
 God thinks the Jews killed his son and must be punished
 God thinks the white man is Satan
 God, they know what God thinks

 God thinks we should all convert to Judaism
 God thinks we must all be Christians and
 God thinks we should all embrace Islam
 God thinks the only true religion is Hinduism

 And I
 I know what God thinks
 God thinks you're a waste of flesh
 God prefers an atheist

 God God
 God thinks all people like you are hateful
 God thinks all people like you are an embarrassment to creation
 self-righteous, judgmental, first to throw a stone
 and using His name for your own protection

 God thinks the sun revolves around the Earth
 God thinks there was something very wrong with Copernicus
 God thinks abortion is murder and
 God thinks everything that science gave us is wrong
 God thinks women deserve it
 God thinks AIDS is a form of punishment

 I hate people who blame the Devil for their own shortcomings and
 I hate people who thank God when things go right

 And I
 I know what God thinks
 God thinks you're an idiot
 God prefers a heretic

 God God
 God thinks all people like you are hateful
 God thinks all people like you are an embarrassment to creation
 self-righteous, judgmental, first to throw the stone
 and using His name for your own agenda

 God is a liberal
 God is a Democrat
 God wants you to vote Republican
 Never trust a man who puts his words in the mouth of God
 and says it's absolute truth
 It's lies and it smells like death
 It's all in a day's work taking money from the poor
 Why do you think that God would need your dirty money
 If He wants to start a holy war?

 Self-righteous, judgmental, first to throw a stone
 and using His name for your own protection

 God thinks puppies need to die and
 God thinks babies need to drown
 'cause God is neither good nor bad
 God is you and me
 God is everything
