All over a girl. Both pathetic and sad :(
We are attracted by wealth, pleasures, good looks, political advancement and various other welcoming and enticing prospects: we are repelled by exertion, death, pain, disgrace and limited means. It follows that we need to train ourselves not to crave for the former and not to be afraid of the latter. Let us fight the battle the other way round—retreat from the things that attract us and rouse ourselves to meet the things that actually attack us.

This is insanely bizarre. It must be a joke. If not it's incredibly sad.

:shock:

People will do crazy things. Poor guy.

I am more intrigued by the style of journalism. Only in America could the news be so opinionated.

I mean it doesn't really surprise me even though it is incredibly sad.

People jump off the bridge behind my house pretty frequently. There is a jumper every few months.

No, news are like this everywhere.

But may I ask plwk: why did you post this?

Not in New Zealand yet, but there is a trend toward it.

In Germany you can choose between lurid headlines or news in a moderate style. But all news are somehow opinion-creating.
