Straydog24 - I'm not casting any votes in here but I don't see the allure of watching some poor fucker get shot in the face or have his head sawed off. What do you get from it? What purpose does it serve?
That shit steals a little piece of your soul. I firmly believe that. I watched one of the first beheadings a long time ago and wish I could go back in time and "unwatch" it.
I dont know why other people watch these videos, Im sure theres some sick fucks who get off seeing this kind of stuff, but for me it just kind of is a reminder of what goes on outside my comfortable little bubble in this little slice of the world. It kind of keeps me grounded with the knowledge that life is short and can come to an abrupt end at anytime in any number of ways. Its a reminder that there are people out there who are willing to do harm to anyone for any number of reasons, people with no remorse or feelings.
I, and Im sure a lot of people who get the same way, sometimes get so set in my routine of work, eat, sleep, wake up, repeat that Im just stuck in the now and not fully aware of the fact that everything can end on any given day. I just take for granted that Ill get to wake up in the morning in my bed, and that Ill make it home at night and get another day. So seeing something like this is like an extreme reminder to be cautious, and enjoy the moment and not just put off everything for the weekend or whatever.
I dont purposefully seek this shit out and I dont get any satisfaction from it, but when one comes across my path like this one I dont just cover my eyes and ears and pretend this stuff doesnt happen and continue on in my little bubble of blissful ignorance.
