    Edit: If I'm not mistaken Oscar Wilde employed gallows humor as he lay dying when he made the remark about the awful wallpaper in the room saying, "One of us is going to have to go!"
    That is spot on I think. It makes sense as a coping mechanism. There is a similar principle, but also a difference when it is psychological distance of the media instead of hands on gore that has to be confronted. I'm not sure the average person has to cope with a story like that in the same way an EMT deals with pain and death because it is more easily dismissed as unreal.

    I'm not completely certain it is real, but seeing her picture and hearing something about her makes her similarly real in my mind to someone posting in this thread whom I also know little about. I can see that most other people make a distinction of forum people being more real that someone in the media, although forum people are also less real in many people's minds than those in real life. People outside a person's sphere tend to be completely dehumanized. From an objective standpoint each person is equally real regardless of how well I know them. Measuring a person's humanness based on their familiarity to oneself is irrational on one level and yet basic to how people think.

    Actually, Placenta Parties are all the rage nowadays.

    All it needs is a potato or two.

    Even Tom Cruise is in on it.
