    I just finished a tour in Afghanistan where we killed a lot of people. Didn't bother me at all. Somtimes i found it hilarious, like a guy who got up at night to do some father son jihad an his kid walked on the pressure plate as he was still fiddling with the charge and blew both his hands off. He came to our base and surrendered for medical treatment but died of blood loss soon after. It bothers me somewhat be not bothered at all by death of bad guys. Oh well. I'm wondering what everyone else's take on this is.

    Only a handful of other people on the forums can really have the same perspective as you. The rest of us can just suppose.

    How could a Christian ceremony be fucked up? (I don't know how things are done over there)
    What did they do?

    We'd talked about that kinda thing (admittedly when we were younger and before he got ill) but he was never into christianity, and putting on a big ole dog and pony show where there was a big evangelical priest and things just seemed a little tasteless to me

    You're fucking insane.

    At first I thought this was gonna be a fucked up alt given the join date, but then when you read his other posts? Guns and Afghanistan caves.

    I think he left his sanity somewhere near Tora Bora.

    Having compassion and general feelings is something that left me long ago
    I laughed when White Bread Brad blew up {I told him not to go that way, also he was the one I mentioned earlier in the thread}
    If you have seen half the things I have done while in the marines then nothing would shock you.
    I know not to discuss the things I have witnessed and done with anyone because I just don't know how they would take it knowing who I am today

    I'm sorry, myself being an athiest, I don't want a religious ceremony when I die. You remember and cherish the way that the person lived - not by the way you thought they should have lived.

    But you still have got to have some sort of religious symbol in the funeral. Like a regular priest who reads for a couple of minutes for the sake of those (friends/family) who are religious. Also religion gives people some kind of closure to the death of the person. (even if you don't believe in any religion at all)

    yes it is horrible

    I guess I should say I'm not sure how I feel about how people handle the death of others

    that is to say they forget about that person and never talk about them

    and I don't know how that makes me feel

    disappointed
    but understandably so

    and that in itself is dissapointing

    I know what you're talking about. Perhaps if you ever face the death of someone close to you you'll know how to feel, I guess.

    uh

    i'll be perfectly honest here

    i nodded at the sort of ironic humor in the situation spacerat posted about

    were i in his place, i could probably find myself laughing at the absurdity of it

    also

    i don't think it is morally repugnant to not be bothered by killing terrible people.

    they're terrible people

    you're doing the world a favor by removing them from society

    i mean don't revel in it, of course. don't take pleasure from it

    but nod and know you're doing good work, however unpleasant it may be, it's a job most people aren't cut out to do but somebody's got to do it.

    i have never found myself emotionally effected by the deaths of people close to me

    i have, however, found myself emotionally effected by the effect those deaths have on the living people who are close to me.

    for example

    when my grandfather died.

    i loved my grandfather. he was a wonderful man. but i did not cry at his funeral. i was quiet, respectful, and i was just sort of calmly contemplating the effect this good man had on my life. then i saw my father sob uncontrollably, and i got very upset. i realized afterwards i wasn't really upset about my grandfather's death, i was upset that my father was dealing with it so badly. i was sad because my dad was hurt.

    I'm stuck at an AFB in the middle of a former soviet republic (with a 2 beer max). My list of activities is drink 2 beers, goto the gym, pay $2.50 per hour on the internet that slightly faster than dialup. I havn't played a video game since september 2006. I see threads about people dying and guns. Which ones do you think I have the most recient experience about? On a side note I have another account I just didn't remember the user email so i reregistered.

    Me and my mum had one of those awkward moment's at my great aunt's funeral where we both started laughing, and everyone stared.

    In my defense, my great aunt was pretty much the best person ever, and I'm sure she would have understood.

    And we were laughing at something my great aunt once said, so it was cool.

    earlier this year, there was a pretty good chance i only had months to live

    whoooooops health problems anyway that's not the point

    point is i decided i was gonna take this like a man either way so i got my shit in order

    legal will, with living will, last wishes regarding burial and ceremony, etc.

    i thought before actually sitting down with a lawyer and working shit out that it was gonna be morbid and upsetting

    actually it's an interesting experience

    it feels kind of comforting in a weird way

    to get that shit out of the way and know that at the very least, all else fails, you at least got that all figured out.

    i had a very (VERY... 1" or less) near death experience and thought the same thing (ok that and please god let me die instantly). It's a bit wierd to be comforted to know everything is already taken care of but on the other hand then you get to be selfish and only care about yourself.

    My uncle died about six or seven weeks ago. He had AIDS when he got back from Texas ten years ago, and he was very sick. He was an alcoholic for a while, but then got better. He held out for ten years, and then died.

    I was at my grandparents house, they called him for dinner, and since he was a heavy sleeper, they assumed he was sleeping. Later, when my dad and I were driving home, we heard the bad news. We were all horrified, and I spent the weekend at my grandparents house. My aunt, uncle, and cousins came to visit for the weekend. It was a very awkward weekend.

    I have $575,000 in life insurance and my family is rich and has disowned me (for joining military and being *gasp* poor!). If I die everyone I have been friends with since 2000 or so is invited to a massive blowout at a hotel that will be rented out. It's already been done but I liked it and copied it.

    So some kid at my school died earlier this week

    I just found it was because the kid was trying to asphyxiate himself with masturbating

    After hearing this, my mother tried to speak with me on the safeties of masturbation

    I think I am going to leave the house for a couple hours now
