Are you an angry drunk?

I was, that's why I stick to only smoking grass now. Alcohol, REAL alcohol not beer or anything can turn you into the devil. I stay FAR away from it now.

What's your favorite 80's song?

Of COURSE there's too many sillies! But I think with the "Black Mirror" episode called "San Junipero this classic totally has new meaning for me.


So let's hear it, what song makes you remember leg warmers, pleated pants, SWATCH watches and Pac-Man?

Anyone here NOT like sports?

I just could never get into them growing up, or now in adulthood. Always felt people should be playing them rather than watching them but I never was able to get into watching any type of sport. That being said, I've basically been left out of a lot of conversations as a result. I guess if I HAD to watch any sport it would be the Olympics but even that doesn't hold my interest too long.

The Mysterious Death of Elisa Lam

The body of Elisa Lam, also known by her Cantonese name, Lam Ho Yi (simplified Chinese: 蓝可儿; traditional Chinese: 藍可兒; April 30, 1991[1] 2013), a Canadian student at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, was recovered from a water tank atop the Cecil Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles on February 19, 2013. She had been reported missing at the beginning of the month. Maintenance workers at the hotel discovered the body when investigating guest complaints of problems with the water supply.

Her disappearance had been widely reported; interest had increased five days prior to her body's discovery when the Los Angeles Police Department released video of the last time she was known to have been seen, on the day of her disappearance, by an elevator security camera. In the footage, Lam is seen exiting and re-entering the elevator, talking and gesturing in the hallway outside, and sometimes seeming to hide within the elevator, which itself appears to be malfunctioning. The video went viral on the Internet, with many viewers reporting that they found it unsettling. Explanations ranged from claims of paranormal involvement to the bipolar disorder from which Lam suffered; it has also been argued that the video was altered prior to release.

Does anyone remember Wang Yue? (not for faint of heart)

This story still sticks with me because it was just so avoidable.


Wang Yue (Chinese: 王悦; pinyin: Wng Yu), also known as "Little Yue Yue" (Chinese: 小悅?, was a two-year-old Chinese girl who was run over by two vehicles on the afternoon of 13 October 2011 in a narrow road in Foshan, Guangdong. As she lay bleeding on the road for more than seven minutes, at least 18 passers-by skirted around her body, ignoring her. She was eventually helped by a female rubbish scavenger and sent to a hospital for treatment, but succumbed to her injuries and died eight days later. The closed-circuit television recording of the incident was uploaded onto the Internet, and quickly stirred widespread reaction in China and overseas. Many commentators saw this as indicative of a growing apathy in contemporary Chinese society.

*warning! it's hard to watch, even harder to watch nobody do a thing to help her.
