It's not unprecedented on CDC for people to grieve the loss of a person that they may have not know personally or relate to a sad story by offering their own testimony as a way of relating and empathizing.
You apparently lack the ability to empathize as they do, because you're obviously too manly to publicly display any sort of grief, sorrow or empathy.
If you don't like it, don't look at this thread, or don't respond. I'm sure there's a music thread for you to participate in instead.
It's almost comical how Sharp is pretending to champion the meek, while tomorrow he'll spend 10 hours trying to berate, humiliate and bully people for having different beliefs from him.
I, for one, empathize in ways that go beyond (or fall short of) trying to talk about myself. Unfortunately, I didn't feel a whole lot this time around. Thank god, because sorrow doesn't really achieve a whole lot (for me, anyway!). The (not so) Amazing Atheist's video, on the other hand, did make me feel a strong desire to chat to those shy, uncomfortable looking students in class tomorrow.
Anyway, I know you're not exactly known for your sense of humour, but that "music joke" that you tack on to each post is less than funny at this point. I can maybe hear some familiar cackling from beyond your shoulder, but for those of us who don't ride around on broomsticks, maybe you should try to mix things up a bit.
