What kind of idiot thinks this way? "Oh in a certain light, being lit on fire sounds exciting."
I'm actually upset about this. I don't think any human being should be allowed to be that desensitized. It's what creates nuclear wars and disasters in the first place, desensitization.
Instead of saying "what kind of idiot thinks this way?", perhaps ask yourself what kind of idiot willfully misunderstands (to give you the benefit of the doubt) the point that is being made and travels to other threads to throw a fit about it? Maybe what such a person calls "desensitization" is actually the ability to see things from more than one perspective.
