Well, I currently am 21, in probation for drug charges, my only job is on a "we'll call when needed" status since march even though they promised it would be back to full time in late june(they are changing businesses), I don't have a license, I don't have a car, I am ~$50,000 in debt for medical reasons, even with no license and no car I still need to figure out some way to pay about three hundred dollars a month for car insurance or my mom and sister will be automatically dropped as per state law(FUCK YOU NEW JERSEY), I have never had a girl friend, even though I don't have any desire to have sex I let women walk all over me and waste what little money I have, almost all of my close friends have recently moved about 3 hours away and while they asked me to join I couldn't due to probation(three of them are on probation for the same charges but were allowed to because they are going to college out there), I probably have the worst teeth(well whats left of them) you have ever seen, I am struggling to make probation payments, most of my other friends families come from atleast moderate money so of course they don't have any of these concerns, I am admittidly depressed both on the mental state and the brain chemistry reasons.

And mind you that is only current state, If I was to go into previous history I would have everyone on this forum amazed that I survived with out any major medical problems, not counting those that I already do have.

Kick, is that you behind the tv-like censor? If so, you have really pale eyes, which are cool.

Also, Confession: I taped over some training videos I was duplicating for a co-worker. The videos were depressing, so I put 300 on them instead. Same thing, right?

Depends was it a training video on the correct way to scream while kicking a man down a giant hole?

If not, then no they really are not the same thing.

If so, I want your job.

Yep thats me. I have those really pale blue eyes that you only see on a few people. If you look on one of those gene charts I am pretty much quadruple recessive. They are a little green in this pic because it is summer.

Shame, rather than confession:

I never shed a tear for the WTC attack.

I never shed a tear for the London train bomb.

I never shed a tear for the thousands dead in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I never shed a tear for my 'grandparents'.

I never shed a tear for my elderly friend that was hit by a lorry.

I shed tears for characters dying in books and games and movies.

I shed tears when my friend Catherine died.

Not to make a joke of my shame, but:

Neither of you had grandparents that were your real grandparents, and one of you had an elderly friend that was hit by a lorry?

Just like me?

If only I knew what a lorry was. I did have a friend in a nursing home, though.

And wait a minute, both my grandparents are alive. time to edit.

Lorry is a... fuck... I can't think of the american term... Uhm, it's a type of automobile. Articulated lorries are the larger kind with the smoke stacks and generally hauling cargo.

I didn't cry either. I live in England, where we've been the subject of terror attacks from the Northern Irish since before I was born. Just because it's one of the only big terror attacks on you does not make it the only terror attack ever committed.

Did you cry when the IRA left a bomb in the middle of a busy shopping centre?

Did you cry when a bridge in China collapsed and killed 28 people?

Did you cry at the recent earthquakes that are killing people in third world countries?

If I cried at every tragedy the tears would never stop.

I'm also another one who never cried for the terroist attacks, or grandparents dieing, but does during movies / video games.

I've often thought why I didn't cry when my grandparents died, I really don't know why I never bothered too much with these things. Probably for the same reason as Jesster said.

It's not fucked up. Some people just express emotions in different ways, and experience them differently. It doesn't mean that we think death and destruction aren't sad, it just means we don't respond in that PRECISE way.

You cry during movies and books and things because you are up close with the characters and the director or author attepts to make you feel for the character. Its easier to cry at a movie of someone you dont know in real life dying than it is to cry over someone you dont know dying on the news. The news isnt spending money on music and lighting and such to tug at your heart strings.

I mean I cry in movies.. and I didnt cry at any of the terrorist attacks. But I thought more about the terrorist attacks, I felt empathy for the people involved and the families that lost people. Just because people dont cry doesnt mean they dont care. And it may be suprising but people have seen worse death counts and more horrible ways to die than what happened with 9/11 or the london bombings or any of the other attacks.

Confession: When the tsunamis struck a couple of years ago, I felt bad... for a few seconds.

I only cared about the size and force of the tsunami. Sometimes when the death toll reaches so high it's a little too overwhelming to feel sorry for such a large number of people.

I find terrorist attacks that kill a few people saddening. I do not, however, find death tolls from natural hazards to be saddening. My fascination with hazards overlaps any sense of sadness towards the victims.

I didn't cry when the towers fell, I sat there in shock and didn't know what to do.

I cried later when I saw footage of people jumping from the top floors. I had a breakdown, in fact.

Not everybody reacts the same ways.

I cried more when my friend Catherine died than when my grandfather died. Not every death is the same.

I'm disturbed every time I turn on the news and see the huge death tolls for everything from earthquakes to floods to wars to heat waves to the Darfur militias.

And yet it's still really big news when one more soldier dies in Iraq, or six miners get trapped in a cave.

500 people died in the course of a week recently, because of a heat wave. Who cried? Can I get a show of hands?

Confession: It's early and I'm not sure why I wrote all that.

I didn't cry on September 11. My mother did, out of relief when she discovered my father wasn't dead. I was shocked, terrified and horrorstricken, but I certainly wasn't crying - it just wasn't how I felt. I'm pretty sure this doesn't diminish me as a human being, but hey, what do I know?

Because it was in New York, which has the same daily effect on my life as Palestine.

Actually, strike that. Palestine has more of a daily effect on my life.

Sure, it's a horrible, awful thing that happened. Like the first WTC bombing, like Oklahoma City, like Waco. Like all the crazy-ass bombings that went on when the IRA was still in to crazy-ass bombings. Like Pol Pot, or Ceasar's Murder.

Stuff that affects my life in very subtle ways. I've only flown once since then, and my stupid luck happened to fly back home as they were kicking on that "NO LIQUIDS EVAR!!" crap. No sense in crying about any of it. Sure, it's a hell of a big deal to people that were directly affected by it, or people who give a shit about NYC. I am neither one of these people.
