Down upon their heads

Actually, I believe it was from a different source other than the BBC.

That's just horrible."Yes, I'm quite concerned about health care issues surrounding leaked radiation from Japan. Now, please pass me my super sized, bacon double cheeseburger, combo meal..."

My most recent faith struggle is not one of intellect. I don't really do that anymore. Sooner or later you just figure out there are some guys who don't believe in God and they can prove He doesn't exist, and some other guys who can prove He does exist, and the argument stopped being about God a long time ago and now it's about who is smarter, and honestly, I don't care. ~ Don Miller Blue Like Jazz

It is like those mob mentalities that encourage people who are contemplating jumping off of bridges or buildings.
Even in real life, as a trained professional, I am constantly amazed by the presenting of suicidal thoughts/gesture/threats to get attention or to work the system.
Of course, I treat all talk of suicide seriously, just in case. But I see no reason why untrained chatters in cyberspace should have known that the young man wasn't just a Troll looking for attention.

If no one is there to remind us, it seems like many of us forget we are human. It is very disturbing. I feel sorry for the man wwho committed suicide. He must have been very very lost.Meh.

On the one hand its sad he died.
On the other hand at least he won't try to prove how "hardcore" he is to anyone in the future. Darwin award nominee anyone?See the happy moron,
He doesn't give a damn,
I wish i was a moron,
My god...perhaps i am...

I differ with you on this one Cal.. he was not just typing words,he was in front of a webcam and displaying the effects of ingesting too many drugs.
It's sad. I defineately, as a trained professional would have reacted to the talk and behavior immediately.. I am just not convinced that the people online with him can be held responsible in the culture WE have created.
My opinion of course...
