A 38-year-old TV sports anchor from Chicago was found dead Thursday morning in his Atlanta hotel room, where he was staying while covering the Chicago Bulls-Atlanta Hawks NBA playoff series.

I find it ironic that his name is Hawks and he died while on a trip to cover the Hawks game.

Kinda wierd, I must have heard about atleast 10 young people that died in this past week.........heart failures and things like that, I think the food we eat needs to be investigated. Fat people don't die young in Africa, there must be a reason fat people die so young in America.

USA consumes the most processed food in the world, and with all kinds of chemical additives added in, and how do we combat the horrible side effects of these processed foods? With harsh pharmaceuticals.

exactly, there's nothing wrong with joking about death or cracking jokes during morbid/tense situations.

as long as you don't offend grieving family members and friends or anything

Show some ****ing respect.

Look, people react differently to those kinds of situations, there's no one right way to react and its crazy to tell people how they should feel or how they should act.

I'm all for laughing at death. Laugh while you can because soon enough you will be dead

Great, may as well have no etiquette for anything then. Joke about breast cancer, as long as no one you're talking to has a family history. Joke about the funny ways our soldiers died overseas, as long as you're not talking to any of their specific family members.

If you're all for laughing at people dying, especially right when it happens, there is absolutely something wrong with you. That or you're too young to understand how to act properly. Sorry but that's a fact.

You're being sarcastic but I think you're right. Comedy has no boundaries. There are dead baby jokes. There are rape jokes. Comedy means pushing the envelope.

Here's a joke for you, why did the little girl fall off the swing?

because she had no arms.

Terrible, right?

This thread is about an ACTUAL PERSON. One who tragically died today. There is literally nothing about that which justifies cracking jokes.

We're obviously not going to agree. None of us knew this person, there's nothing wrong with laughing at the absurdity of death.

Laughing in the face of death is a defense mechanism any way, it masks our discomfort with it and it masks our fear of it.

You can do whatever you want if you're dealing with something. But publicly laughing at someone else dying for no reason isn't acceptable, whether you agree with it or not.

No. And notice how I said "for no reason." And especially not right after it happens, that's one of the most classless things imaginable. Again, laughing at others dying is like saying you have literally no care at all for others and possibly an incapacity to grasp human emotion.

Yeah you show them. Might as well **** on their grave while you're at it. Who cares if it's not "socially acceptable". What you're talking about isn't going against conformity, it's flat-out disrespect. Really not that hard to understand the difference.

You don't laugh AT the person who died, like "HAHAHA, he died, that's hilarious"

But I see nothing wrong with cracking jokes in morbid situations. The only reason you care is because you think there's only one correct way to react, when that's just not true.

Great, that has nothing to do with this thread. There have been a few inappropriate comments and you defended them. Oh, and the reason I care is because I'm a person who actually understands the concept of respect (like when a person dies), something it seems you have absolutely no definition for. But go ahead and act whatever way you want, considering you have no ability to understand the difference between having different personalities and acting like an asshat. I'm done here.

jeez, you really seem to be personally affected by this death. Did you know the guy or something? You're acting like your best friend died.

I didn't want to say this but...U seem real maaaad. All these kids nowadays disrespecting the quiet sanctity of death, right? acting all willy nilly refusing to be somber and dejected. the nerve of some people.

What do kids have to do with anything? Even kids know joking about someone that just died is idiotic.

Oh, and I get mad at people's stupidity more than anything. So I guess that's why I'm real maaaad

You are not the emotion police, you don't get to dictate how people should feel and act, I'm sorry.

You think I give a **** about how you feel? Serial killers, pedophiles, etc. feel what they feel. And it's never a problem until they do something.

I never said joking about death in general isn't right, you are just trying to digress hoping to save yourself from looking bad. You don't make a joke about a specific person who just died and the last time I said that I put it in quotes so stop playing dumb and trying to change course.

Exactly. Like I said before, bin Laden has every right to get **** on after he died. He was a piece of crap and a murderer. But here, a guy did nothing wrong, died prematurely and people are cracking jokes, and this guy here is trying to make himself seem like some new age rebel :pity:. Really pathetic.

I don't know why you're so mad, you remind me of an old guy who is outraged by "kids today" and their lack of respect and propriety. You're very rigid in your way of thinking.

Why do you need everybody to say just the right thing and express just the right emotions in this thread? Are you a control freak?

Iggz53
05-13-2011, 01:42 AM

Great, disagree. But that says you have absolutely no consideration for others. And that's indisputable because whether you agree with it or not, many people get offended and disgusted by that, and they don't have to be that person's family member. They only have to be a member of the human race.

So like I said, go ahead and do whatever you want but you're making yourself look like an idiot to a lot of people. And I can predict that you're going to say "well I don't care what others think," which exactly my original point (2nd sentence). Have a good day.

Here you go again trying to digress and make this into difference in personality. If you can't see the difference then I can't help you.
