Reminds me of a story about a cop who tazered a 6-year-old because he saw him playing with a piece of broken glass and was worried he would cut himself.

Yeah that reminds me of something I completley made up in a vain attempt to sound cool, too! What a coincidence.

Now church burnings are the ultimate in brainless "Look, i'm edgy!" moves, but one coming from GameFAQs of all places... just pretty much justifies the stereotype about that place.

Jesus christ, and this is a reputable news source? I still have great difficulty believing a grown adult in a position of responsibility such as that would take the "hurr, smash!" route with a KID. I mean.. I know the depths of ignorance and stupidity, but come on, tazing a kid?

Does CNN work for you as a reputable news source?
Just because TTT says something, doesn't mean it's not true, just that you should double check.

Don't encourage him.

This is just ridiculous... especially with the way weddings go. You spend ages preparing and waiting for it... and then BAM, she just dies right there an hour beforehand? The textbook definition of a tradgedy. Can't imagine how the widower must feel.

Jediknight12345? Really original name. Clearly this is a jackass with no imagination whatsoever.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I was thinking at first it was going to be one of those excessive black metal types (look up Varg Vikernes if you want more info) who burn down churches at some kind of bizarre and psychotic statement. But no, turns out he just did it for the sheer hell of it.

Then, last year, the Poeterays put Jade in the care of Hong Kong's Social Welfare Department, saying they could no longer care for her because of the girl's emotional remoteness.

Translation: Hey, our kid's broke. I want my money back.
Emotionally remoteness warrants being disowned, now? Hypocrites. If that was true, i'd be well out of the door!

I'd say something along the lines of "facepalm," but this just makes me want to cry instead.

Oh.... wow. Bravo Saudi Arabia. You have now proved that you are CENTURIES behind everyone else. Witchcraft? Seriously, who believes this crap!?

As if hanging homosexual wasn't enough.

How can we take a country seriously that has a Medieval legal system? Oh yes, Oil lubricates that friction.

That frustrates me. On one hand I'm like KILL THE BASTARDS! on the other I'm like, "They can't all be bad..."
