Shooting the youtubed messenger

Big fuss about this.

According to my ki, Logan Paul is a youtuber who makes people hate him.

Anyhow, hes gone to Japan this xmas and is doing the whole tourist thang.

He's gone off to the haunted forest, where lots of Japanese kill themselves. And hes a youtubes a dead body he found. And made jokes.

Now the vid might be shocking _ unpleasant. The vlogger might bee being disrepectful. But hes not to blame for the suicide.

In fact, if it was not the the youtubing idiot, I doubt few people outside of Japan were aware of the forest.

Its not a new thing. The James Bond book (not film) You Only Live Twice, is based around Japanese glorifying suicide.

There is a problem in Japan. And its not the blogger.

Out of curiosity I just watched the haunted forest video.

Aside from the stupidty of the people who subscribe to these 5 minutes of fame vlogs and so create an income stream that perpetuates the self-obsessed vlogger,

I'd say the vloggers' off the cuff comment was a nervous reaction to being presented with the reality of what he probably, secretly, hoped he'd find but was childishly unprepared for, rather than a comment that was made in calculated disrespect. Earlier in the sequence you can see his genuine emotional unpreparedness, I think, as he is no more than a kid-adult

He should have had the maturity not to include that segment on the video, or not to make it in the first place. But,

The Twitterati jumping on the hate bandwagon are just seeking their own 240 characters of fame, and so they are no better.

A circle jerk.

But it's fine to video the twin towers going down with thousands of folk either being burnt alive or jumping to their deaths ?

In as much as you can make money of the footage bring used in countless documtaries. 

Glad that's understood. Hypocrisy is immense.

You joke.

Visited a frined who's appendixz blew up on Boxing day.

Gastro surgery ward.

40% of the people on the ward were recovering - you could tell, age range, all connected up to drips and whatnot.

The other 60% of the ward - and this was a specialist ward - were OAPs, mainly old ladies, just laid there with nothing medically wrogn with them.

I think the hospital owned up to having 30% of the beds blocked. If the rest of th wards are like this - and Id guess the general ward will be much worse - rather than having an acute hosp9otal we are spendign a fortune on the worlds most expensive old folks home.

And it does put the 'NHS in crisis' in context. I dont think other hospital are much different.

I wonder how many of these could go home but for the fact that there is no-one to care for them - even short term?

The obvious answer is that the relatives should look after them - but we have created a society where the offspring have a) probably had to move some way away and b) couldn't get/afford the time off work to care for them if they wanted to.

Is there an argument for a short term 'grandparent leave' system?

I see it a bit like maternity leave - set at something like 90% of your weekly wage, capped at £300, for up to six weeks, so long as approved by the discharging doctor.

Paid by the employer and reimbursed by the Government just like maternity leave.

I am no fan of this kind of system but it would appear o be a solution that might just free up a lot of beds.

I didn’t see the video (it’s been pulled now?)..  I don’t really see the issue though.

Apparently he blurred the face so the body was anonymous.  

I’m not sure why society has such a hang up about this sort of thing anyway.  If suicide is a fact of life then it shouldn’t be hidden,  it should be shown and talked about in what ever context people feel they need/want to.  Society tries too hard to shelter itself from reality..  It isn’t healthy or educational IMO.

The bloke is a bellend being castigated by other bellends. I swear to God, the internet and it's social media platforms really have spawned some the choicest halfwits ever to dribble upon this planet.

The only person that comes out of it with any dignity is the dead guy.
