    A film buff compared my replies to Lauren Bacall today. I can only imagine he was referring to the similarity in sardonic wit.

    Maybe I've been watching too much Fraiser....

    I am hurt. Honestly. It's worse that no one cares enough to stop. I'm not sure if I should actually be saying no one cared enough not to start. I'm afraid if I complain more that it will just get worse.

    There are much better places to hang out on the internet than immature typology based discussion boards.

    People shot by the US police since the beginning of this year: 385
    People shot by the German police since 1952: under 500 (on average less than 10 a year, quite a few years without)
    People shot by the British police in the last decades: one or two a year, quite a few years without)

    Even adjusting for population size ... is your police that bad or your population so much more violent?!?

    Probably both.

    The US has a homicide rate similar to Yemen and Niger.

    well...if you take into consideration that 43 homicides and 100+ non-fatal shootings have taken place just in baltimore this month, it sheds some light on the problems police are dealing with in the US. that's ONE city (population: approx. 623,000) in ONE month.

    I never say what I really think, because people would get hurt after knowing what I really think of 'em. I never say what I really feel, because people would think I am a pathetic, arroganst and oversensitive asshole. I never do what I want to, because people would think I am an irresponsible kid.
