RE: Mass shooting at Batman premiere
I cannot express the level of frustration I feel when I see friends and family asking for prayers for the shooter in addition to the victims on facebook. I have yet to come out to my entire family about my atheistic beliefs, but seeing my innocent grandmother want to save a deranged murderer has put me damn near the tipping point.

Though you beat him by a day, the discussion has pretty much been taking place in Earmuff's "not so informatively titled" thread Are You Fucking Kidding Me?

You and earmuffs both asked the forum to go to prom at the same time and sadly, the forum chose earmuffs.

Yes... and that official count is now: 12 dead with 59 others wounded. The guy is named James Holmes and he was arranged Monday morning and will again be brought into court again early next week to officially face charges.
Here's his photo -the one where he's not smiling is just after his arrest.

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

I don't mean to hurt anyone's feelings, but I'd rather go to prom with Filox, even though I might have a slightly better chance of gettin sum from Muffs.

Not that I care so much, but I think it is kinda forum-ethical for you to check the new posts before opening the exactly the same topic. 4 times, on different occasions. Must be that I am old-school internet ethics type of person, when I first started going on newsgroups, people there have explained the aspects of polite behaviour in online communities.

That is why I am nagging at people when they don't use the proper topics for their posts, or when we have double threads and so on... It is just the way I was "internet raised".

And although I did open up this thread before ears, he did go for the more dramatic subject name and that turned out be be good marketing, so people chose that thread to use. It only shows how people (even here) respond to drama sooner than to normal world news.

So, enjoy, drama-queens.

I take back my earlier comment. Filox wouldn't be fun at all to take to prom. He will just lecture me the whole time. Weeping

Erx, that would be called "superior logic", not "lecturing"...

You tell him ears, now he can walk alone to his prom.
