Bear with me folks... I am a smidge manic today (I know - you're shocked.)
I've been attempting to decide which of the 98 1/2 subjects zipping through my head I'd like to talk about, but I can't settle firmly on one...
Therefore, I will be making brief statements about a few different things today...
1. Is it just me, or is anyone else's curiosity piqued as to why we can't buy a 50 Cent CD at Wal-Mart because he raps about guns, but what you CAN buy at Wal-Mart is a GUN?
2. I'm thinking that if your bedtime is "Tuesday", there's a good chance you may be bipolar.
3. I really for the life of me CANNOT UNDERSTAND why some people get so bent out of shape about how their Bipolar Disorder is referenced in relation to them as a person. Is there a collossal difference between "I AM bipolar" and "I HAVE Bipolar" ??? I submit that no, there is not. Use your valuable breath to talk about something that actually matters, like the fact that Baby Ruth bars only have about 45% of the nuts they used to have, or that a seven year old committed suicide -
4. A seven year old Iranian boy committed suicide. Yeah. A SEVEN YEAR OLD. When I read the article which talks about the boy's self inflicted death, I literally became sick. A SEVEN YEAR OLD.... it makes one think, does it not?
But here's the kicker folks; the powers that be are (of course) blaming the media.
An excerpt from the article, which was published on Medical News Today:
This seems to be the first case of attempted copycat suicide in a child under 10 years old. Exposure to suicidal behaviour in the media has been strongly linked to copycat suicide attempts but never in someone so young. This case warns of the potential danger to young people who are exposed to suicide even when it is fictional, and exposes the previously ignored role of attention deficit and impulsive behavioral traits on suicide...
I'm not sure what I think about a 7 year old hanging himself, and the media being faulted... but I'd be really interested in hearing from anyone who DOES know what they think about it. The jury is still out on that one for me.
