read news

Recommended Posts

I like to know whats going on both locally and not so locally. Its just that

the news is always so fucked up. I usually read it first thing in the morning.

So... the first things i get to think about are people getting hacked up in dope

houses, how the job market is going to remain stale into and perhaps beyond

next year, pedophiles, corruption, bleak financial forecasts, people getting

blown up halfway across the world. bodies being dug up in backyards. I mean...

once ive wrapped my brain around all that fucked up shit I have the rest of

the day ahead of me. I just got done reading the shit. It was all bad news,

each story worse than the next. Its hard enough keeping a positive attitude.

I might be done with it. thats all

 

I was tryin to make this a poll but i clicked the wrong button.

oh well

My girl constantly hounds me about the fact that i refuse to read the news every day because of the depressing shit that is typically reported on. It's upsetting. I will probably read the news about once a week.

 

I can't watch local news either because it's all homicide this, robbery this, rape this, blah blah blah... Usually they tie the end of the a local news story with something happy, but even then it's still 95% depressing 5% positive, but hey man I guess that's life.

I read the news everyday and occasionally watch it on TV. I don't get bothered by all the bad news, shot would happen if reported or not - my wife hates the news it makes her depressed

I read the news/watch it almost a dozen times a day. I like to be informed and know whats going on with the world. When dudes in the streets by the thousands in DC, it doesnt hurt to know why.

Ron Paul's Hr 1207 passed...

"In a surprising display of political rebellion, about half the Democrats present and all the Republicans voted for Mr. Paul’s bill instead of a compromise measure drafted by Representative Mel Watt, Democrat of North Carolina."

They had a study that said that reading the news was less stressful than watching the news. Reading the news provided set data, where as watching it, it changes every 5 minutes, there are new details etc.

I agree the news is pretty depressing. Like they say Ignorance is bliss. If you don't know about the bad shit that goes on you can't be upset about it.

 

 

And major props to the weekly world news. I used to read that shit for the funniest laughs ever, anyone get the book? It's great.

You can't let the news upset you, the world can be a terrible place.

 

But for every bad thing in the world there are ten good things. It's just that good things don't get reported most of the time. We are risk focused we want to know everything that can harm us so we can avoid it. So bad news is the most important, that's why reading the paper can be depressing.

 

The world and our lives are not as bad as it seems when viewed through the news.
