    As rare as it might be, I am going to side with EvilAKappy for once. The Olympics just brings out the crazies! If this didn`t happen in Beijing, something crazy was going to happen elsewhere. Although I think this was a little more targeted than an impersonal bombing.

    How can you be so ashamed of your own people. If one dog bites someone you don`t condemn dogs as a whole.

    Have some faith, the world isn`t as bad as you think. And remember that the things you see in the news are the IRREGULARITIES in daily life, not the normal events

    I don`t really know what some of you guys are whining about. "Stay classy, Beijing"? Damn does no one realize that this was a suicide attacker? It could happen anywhere. China may be one crazy country, but our Western society isn`t that flawless, ya know. At least in China they do something about pollution on the streets. All they do here is bitch about it because of the political correctness of bitching about it.

    dont get me started mrwnt, on thbis subject...
    a dog will bite someone for a reason, whether its defense, its frightened or rabid.. it will always be for a reason, humans have killed each other for no reason.
    nothing... fathers killing their children, for nothing, women killing their husbands, for nothing, religions killing off other religions, beause they dont agree.
    dont tell me how to feel about it, please, its my opinion and i wont change it.

    yes and like i said, those are not most people. With our great intelligence and cooperativeness we are able to do horrible things, like al qaeda, but we are also able to do great things: see picasso, the international space station, discovering DNA, curing diseases, making music, making art, speaking to one another, inventing the internet.

    I could go on and on. That fact is, you stereotype all people based on the actions of a few. Why don`t you try doing so on the actions of normal people.

    What about the billions of fathers who work to put food on the tables, or the billions of mothers who do the same and raise their kids right? What about the billions of religious people who raise their moral standards thanks to their religions?

    But you`d rather focus on the couple thousand fathers who kill their children, etc. I, on the other hand, think a little better of my own kind.

    i was bitten by a dog on my face and i wont condemn all dogs like you say, i wouldnt do that just because of one incident, you think im ashamed of my own people because of one incident!?
    nope. look around you, we are parasites, we are turning earth into hell.

    "fathers killing their children, for nothing, women killing their husbands, for nothing, religions killing off other religions, beause they dont agree."

    There`s always a motive behind their actions, even though it`s not clear immediately. Parents might have been drunk, making it hard for them to control their actions. Maybe their minds don`t work as they "should" etc. etc.

    "its my opinion and i wont change it."

    Ouch.


    Oh and the "You`re so screwed" post was for mrwnt.

    What? So you want us to blindly ignore the "few" peoples actions and still think the world is a place where you hop hand in hand through a field of flowers?

    Internet, music, art, good examples. But what about weapons, diseases, drugs, racism, religion and so on?

    Ignoring problems doesn`t solve them, deal with them or they`ll deal with you. But we CAN`T deal with them since there are always douche bags protesting for every single action we do because it doesn`t fit their standards.

    These "douche bags" who have protested have also been key to making change in the past.

    However, I do understand what your saying. The world is becoming more of a "What can you do for me?" type of place.

    Regardless of where this happened this is still sad news..

    Oh trust me I wouldn`t hesitate. But I also know that if I did, it wouldn`t be so nice for the people around me that actually care about me. I`m speaking of trauma, guilt feelings etc.

    So I might as well live on and watch how the human race screws up itself.

    Oi, more debate.

    You all should step away and try to see things from a different perspective. I used to feel terrible about the world, though more in a "we`re using all the resources" sense than the "we`re killing each other" sense. It all happens, there`s nothing we can really do about it, so we all should move on and appreciate what we do have. It`s all about perspective.

    I guess what I`m trying to say is that the majority of how you live your life is based on how you view it. If you think the world`s a nasty place, you`ll be nasty yourself, thus contributing to the problem. If you`re, well, not necessarily happy-go-lucky, but at least amiable to the world around you, it won`t seem as dismal a place. You see what I`m getting at?

    Dont point at China because of the Olypmics only. Different Media said it was just a robbery of a tourist.
