-They can sit there on CNN and FoxNews and ask themselves the eternal question, "How could Monday's university shooter have been stopped?" Well, it's too f*cking late. Sorry. Game over. The dude committed his heinous crimes. 30-plus killed. Terrible. Tragic. Senseless.

-Well, they could've secured the cockpit doors, or had an air marshall on board those planes--evacuated more people out of the Twin Towers. Yeah. Sure. But it's over. 3,000 gone. Dead. Sad.

-If only John Lennon had had more security around him at all times and not walked around so casually around NYC, maybe the guy who gunned him down wouldn't have been able to get so close to him and end his genius life. What a terrible loss.

-Why couldn't they have delayed the Space Shuttle Challenger from taking off on such a cold morning? They should've known something could go wrong, but alas...

-Hadn't Kennedy been warned by a psychic about going to Dallas? Didn't they stop to think that a president riding out in convertible like that could get popped off?

-Selena should've never gone to that motel room by herself. What should've been a simple confrontation over missing funds, ended her rising star life when the fat oogly bitch shot her to death.

The list goes on and on. If only they would've. If only they could've. They should've done this, they shouldn't have done that. Hindsight is very clear isn't it? Accidents, disease, and the wicked malice of others cannot truly be prevented/stopped all the time. It's simply impossible!

Alas my friends, I'm a firm believer that when it is your time to exit this dimension, it is your time. And nothing, or no one will stop it.

Enjoy your day and precious moments now.


P.S. Gregg interviewed me last night regarding my second place finish on Blogger Idol. WAT, you're such a loser! AHAHAHAAHAHAH! He's got our actual recorded phone conversation on his site now!

A to the fukn MEN. I'm not swayed emotionally by the tragedy in the least. I'm outraged at the media coverage. Every meda outlet appears to be ambulance chasing vultures. I'm sure they were always like that but... this video media coverage seems indecent.

Look... it happened. Kid who survived are shocked and stunned. Kids who didnt are dead. HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO HEAR THE SAME THING?
I regret trying to watch the simpsons last night. I was sucked into the vortex of nightly news.

Gavin Elster said...

Great interview. I'm pretty sure the voting machine was rigged.

Emma said...

shit, you are so right.
this reminds me of a movie that i am so horrified to admit i saw that i won't even name it. let's just say it was a LAUGHABLY bad horror movie involving a girl who sees the future and sees her friends dying in freak accidents and ponders whether or not to stop it.
i mean, this movie is what they teach you NOT to do in film school.
oh, okay, it's called final destination 3 and i ONLY SAW IT BECAUSE I WAS TRYING TO IMPRESS A GUY, so that makes it okay, right?
;^) jk.

anyway, my point is, you're right. the end is coming, motherf*ckers, and there's nothing we can do to stop it (whether the end is global warming, nuclear war, or just a horrible accident like the challenger), so just try to enjoy the ride while you still can. wow, i just read over this comment and it is like an entire post in itself, and rather a retarded one at that. i need to go to comment rehab where i learn to limit my comments to a healthy and appropriate length. i'm just taking it one day at a time.

WAT said...

Emma: Your comment, especially that last paragraph stands as one of the funniest laugh-out-loud statements in the history of this blog!


Crazy Eddie said...

You couldn't have said it better Wat. Your take on all these tragedies are synonymous with my thoughts exactly...

Sure, everything in life is a shouda coulda woulda question of sorts, but isn't that a sign to just LIVE?? You my friend have a tight grip on reality and I see you as the type who doesn't get all mushed up in the bandwagon of self-pitty. I don't mean to sound crass, but I can't stand when people wallow and ask why their fellow students received three shots to the eye when all they've done in life was make fun of the "geeks" and point fingers at the select few who refuse to walk among the sheep. No one deserves to die, don't get me wrong, but shouldn't Columbine and the countless other school shootings make you question how one should treat your fellow man? While shooting someone down like a wounded horse should not be the answer, I can't help but wonder if these poor, unstable shooters were psychotically fed up with the torment I'm sure engulfed their childhood.

That was a pretty fuckin funny interview, who is this gregg guy, I am gonna have to check out his drunk chat or whatever the hell it is.

dirty said...

I couldn't agree more...what a wonderful post!

faeriedust said...

seriously!! my god i hate that 32 people died, but i hate the news media coverage even more. they can hardly contain their giddyness at finding more and more gruesome information about the situation. leave it alone! leave the kids alone to grieve and do their thing, sheesh.

Sebastien said...

It's true, if it must be, it must be... these things are terrible though, but hopefully we can all appreciate the good times. On that note, I'm gonna go drop some acid right now.

the world is a horrible horrible horrible place

molly said...

its so easy to get caught up in your own death and your own mortality, its hard to truly grasp that theres going to be a split second in your life when you know youre about to die.
which you are.
and i think about it too much.

great post, really thought-provoking.

and my blogger sabbatical is on hold. i cant not blog!
