Lol, only thirty years out.

ok sure, youre not angry.

does it make a difference he says... would you rather some asshole shot me or your nearest and dearest?

would you rather have someone die from random accident or killed on purpose because of property x?

no difference between getting killed for political opinion, and getting killed because lightning struck...

what a shit attitude, imo. i'll leave the philosophy and ethics of it for you intellectuals.
As a matter of fact, my shit attitude rejects people shooting each other, for whatever reason.

But I guess you would like everything laid out for you, letter and verse, so you can put some twaddle spin on it.

The thing is, you don't leave the philosophy and ethics to the intellectuals, nor should you. But there is a world of difference between what you seem to think you're doing, and philosophy or ethics. How shall I call it?

Psuedo-something-bullshit

I'd come up with a more suitable term than "something" but given that even what you get so terribly wrong is, in it's essence, insubstantial, I'm at a rare loss for words.

Angry? Lad, I've barely even cleared my throat, let alone thought about raising my voice.

yes i believe you when you say youre not angry. multiple times so you must really really mean it.

you reject people shooting eachother. oh really. talk about "Psuedo-something-bullshit". how is that not a given?

I do really mean it. And each time you insinuate that I am angry I will deny that because, amongst other things, you are in absolutely no position whatsoever to evaluate whether I am angry are not. I, on the other hand, am. It's a fairly simple exercise in epistemology.

It is a given that people shouldn't be shooting each other, you were the one who questioned that it might not be.

thats right, you can say whatever you want and i still dont believe you. someone that isnt angry doesnt care about some text on a screen calling him angry. in fact, most people dont care anyway. same way i dont care whether you are angry or not. what is this? second grade? youre blushing!

so we agree: ppl should not shoot eachother. ppl shoot eachother anyway. so now what? that is the end of it for you, which i call a shit attitude. i say its bad both cases, but deliberate is worse than accident/random. because deliberate implies a reason or cause. so then we can talk about e.g. fake news or religious doctrine.

ideally limit all deaths to merely the accidents. instead of saying everybody dies so what does it all matter.

shit, we could even go into free will and the deterministic nature of the universe. quibble about what is an accident really. fun stuff.

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

Two people have been killed and at least five injured in a terrorist attack on a Shia mosque in Kabul, the Afghan Interior Ministry reports.

Witnesses reported hearing a blast and gunfire at the al-Zahra mosque, located on the western outskirts of the city, on Thursday night.

I'm not blushing.

Here is another example of a (hopefully) ungrounded assertion:
You are currently sexually abusing a hamster.

Perhaps I should just include that in every reply to you. No wait, that would be ... second grade. You started with that crap, not me.

Sadly extreme factions in Islam murdering colleagues who subscribe to other flavours of their religion is a continuing issue.

"A rimanere uccisa una donna di 38 anni per mano del marito 55enne, entrambi di origine macedone."

"Si tratta - come specificato dalla Polizia cantonale in una nota - di due coniugi in fase di separazione"

A married couple, both Macedonians, in the process of separation.

Yes, in fact when I saw the article, the ages mentioned as well as the age difference, I actually thought of you! I can't think why!
