One More Thing… (Unbelievable)

I figured I’d end the night on a high note. Well, high note for me, at least. This will definitely help the rights claim that abortion is wrong. This is an insane story and you gotta have some pretty big testicles to even contemplate this. Sick shit! What is even sicker is that she was hopeful about the child.

I don’t even think this about the abortion issue, this is simply some sick shit that the lowest sort of guy does to get out of something he couldn’t handle. Men can be extremely stupid sometimes and this is a poster example of one of those moments.

This story leads me to wonder if humans haven’t reached an all time low. I mean, this is just one example of how stupid humans have become, but there are other amazing displays of stupidity to humans credit. Like the Cleveland guy, Castro or whatever his name is, and the sex/torture chamber. I’m starting to think people may be watching a bit too much television and horror movies.

It is almost a universal fact that pornography, for example, is a big reason why men have a difficult time staying focused during sex. So, I am forced to think that maybe the same is true for all media. Like me, I watch way too much news. Over the years I have noticed that I am becoming increasingly jaded and cynical about the world. In fact, I would even go so far as saying I’m a pessimist without any good word to say about humans.

So, can horror movies do the same amount of damage to certain people? Instead of giving us instance gratification or making some of us jaded, it forces certain people to think in depth about torture and murder. I don’t think its that far fetched. I mean, yes sick shit has happened since the dawn of mankind, but it usually required people to be angry or mentally ill. Not anymore. Perfectly normal people doing stupid ass things either for attention or simply because they can. I may never understand people…

I mean, I’m not one who subscribes to the belief that humans mirror the media (and/or entertainment), but rather I believe that artist (who make porn, horror films, and headline news) feed off of the fears and untapped desires of the masses. But how do you explain this? How do you explain torturing females for over ten years in your home like some spawn of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre? You can’t because asking what came first is comparable to the chicken and egg question–which we still don’t have an answer to.

Some believe that humans are naturally evil, others think humans are naturally good, and smart people know that humans are simply humans with good and bad qualities, but this story and others like it make you wonder if we are simply evil being trying our best to be righteous.

Anyway, busy day tomorrow. Lights out!
