To all those who think it makes themselves 'right-on' or that it impresses others\makes you look 'clever' to gloat over the death of a human being.

IT DOESN'T ! .. it simply cements your place in the 'sub-humanoid' strand of the evolutionary split.

To those who don't understand evolution but try and use it as an argument to force others to their way of thinking - evolution takes thousands of years and could in no way be affected by 'opinions', which are creations of nuture, rather than nature.

This is a democracy and people are quite within their rights to express glee over the death of another human being if they want to - for me the question is why they feel the need to? It is crass and ignorant.

Dear people from the socialist workers party. I don't think you'd be that pleased if I stood outside your bedroom every Saturday and ranted with a megaphone.

I didn't say they COULDN'T express their (in my mind) sick rantings over the a humans death, I just said it marked them to belonging to the sub-human strand of evolution.

Hound

I feed you the same thing every meal time, you don't get meat or left overs or 'treats' that are bad for you.  You had the same kibble for breakfast this morning as you did for dinner last night and I haven't changed anything in your diet in recent weeks. 

Why is it then, that you suddenly smell like a rancid poo bag and you insist in lying at my feet right when you decide to let rip one of you toxic farts?

Take it outside, Stinky, I need to breathe!

Are you planning to behave like a hard but incompetent dick for the rest of your life or is this just a new plan for intended management of me for the rest of your life?  If so, Fucking Epic Fail.

Enjoy your wall to wall sport for the next few months.  I suspect once they're gone you might actually realise how much you've fucked up *this*.

Dear unnecessarily noisy motorcyclists roaring down Victoria Street - I take it those big silver machines between your legs were there to compensate for your tiny penises?

I want to say lots of swear words about what happened in Boston, but I suspect that even on this thread I might be told off. You'll have to fill them in for yourselves.

It was you who decided on the 'duties' and that you were "going to be in charge of cakes", meaning I should make the tea and coffee. Whilst I didn't necessarily mind the fact that all you had to do was put a slice on a plate and spend the rest of your time sitting on your arse what I did mind was you storming over whilst I was talking to someone to announce, in that rather exasperated tone, that there was someone waiting for a coffee.

Well make them one then! I'm quite sure you're capable of boiling a bloody kettle. It's not as if you've had to do much else is it?

We're raising money for charity and it's supposed to be fun, so try not to squeeze the last bit of enjoyment out of it by being over-controlling.

Dear senior programme manager – please when you talk to me take your eyes away from your bloody phone. It is not only irritating it makes it seem as if you’re not interested in what I’m saying, which is strange as you are the one asking me a question. This doesn’t prove that you’re busy; it just proves that you’re a self-important gobshite.

If you had removed your nose from your iPhone then you may well observe things more and not come out with statements like “I’m not sure about supporting your promotion as I don’t know what you do.” I did try to explain this to you by taking 10 minutes of your time and sent you a meeting invite, which you accepted. I would have loved to have had the opportunity of outlining the effort I’ve put in over 2 years. The many months where I’ve worked 80-100 hours, the weekends where I have annoyed my wife by working to the point where my marriage was in serious danger, the times I have covered for the ineptitude of the managers that you have appointed (who are as clueless about planning and resourcing as you are) and the process improvements that I’ve implemented to ensure that as a company we didn’t totally piss off the client. However you failed to answer your phone (I’m not sure how as it seems to be glued to your fist), didn’t respond to my voice messages or answer my emails.

I didn’t get the promotion. As such I’ve decided that I’m not that bothered about getting promoted if getting it means I have to suck up to you. And so the next time you need me to dig your arse out of the shit you can go and swivel.

So you broke your leg on holiday. Pity it wasn't your neck.

17/04/2013 at 08:54

colleague...stop pretending to be OUTRAGED at the cost of Lady T's funeral. admit it...you are LOVING it and would have been DEVASTATED if it had been a quiet, private affair, depriving you of your eagerly-anticipated HATE.

Dude - just ask him if he feels outraged about the ~£10bln opportunity 'loss' we got when Gordon Brown sold our gold at ~$275/oz (its $1381 now)
A few mill is irrelevant

What does it say about our ability to feel empathy that on the day of the Boston bombing another similar abhorrent act in Iraq cost 50 odd lives and injured twice as many people as in Boston yet got barely a side glance from our traditional and social media?

Firstly this is not a political point I am making, both events disgust me equally and the parralels are endless. On this forum I can understand that there may be people who had friends and love ones running and watching and also as runners we feel a bit closer to the event than most but in general TV, radio and social media has been ramping up the "tragedy and devastation" angle of Boston and yet similar events overseas get the factual treatment.

The uncomfortable question I'm asking is this; is there a sub concious racism involved here? Are we just naturally more empathetic to people who look like us and live lives similar to ourselves? Or are we just more innured to events in the Middle East?

Clustering?  Groups?  together?

It's a bit of both but I don't think it's racism. There's always been the theory that one person dying in your street is of more interest than 500 dying in China.

Why we are increasingly treating events that happened in the US as though they happened here might be relevant question, although common language will have a lot to do with it. Once news has to be filtered through interpreters it loses its immediacy.

There's also freedom of the press. Not all nation's governments allow the unrestricted to-ing and fro-ing of information that we accept as a given.
