  1. No earthly idea where to put this, so load up your wrong-thread shotguns if you like. @maryportfuncity Long have I wondered. No more.

    Or in fact have been wearing a seatbelt which you'd have thought as a race driver she'd be pretty used to and aware of the reasons for doing so. Then she'd not have been 'ejected from the vehicle' - It doesn't of course say she wasn't wearing one - but it takes a pretty weird set of circumstances to be thrown out if you are.

    So... What Games Are You Playing?

    Ah well, you should've done the magic resist thing. Breton 25%.....Some quest from Riften priestess all about love 10%, Alchemy enhanced enchanted garb and so on and you're hitting the 85% magic resist cap before you meet an ancient level dragon or have ebony anything pretty much. Stand there and laugh at them then. I've even done it without doing the watchtower thing out of Whiterun in the first place because that prevents all those annoying random dragon attacks completely until you want them (I didn't care about dying, but the townsfolk kept getting slaughtered and some with quests aren't marked essential) Still, the whole thing is NOT to fall foul of the meme that a stealthy archer is overpowered and credit for that Anyway, heh, you can tell I played a bit of that game.

    There's so much wrong with this statement I barely know where to start. I'll precis it as: - I can't know you haven't said. You can't know, I haven't said.

    And I can't stand to see people do that collective outpouring of grief thing over some rather than others as if there were a select few for whom it is clearly far worse than others simply because they wore their grief on their sleeve so to speak. The inconsistency annoys me. Everyone matters. I was the same about the 'nation mourns' epidemic for Diana.

    The two things are not mutually exclusive. Thus it's not ignorant. Calling something what it can sometimes be doesn't lessen any empathy one might feel for that or any other case. It's always sad. It's far easier to jump on the empathy bandwagon or the 'never speak ill of the dead' trope than to dare to say anything remotely to the contrary. You and others are simply saying narcissism can play no part at all in suicide or mental health issues. I disagree that's all. Then those including me who have called it as such will be wrong about this particular case. Edit: A very brief google brought up this. You can decry that as wrong if you so choose and I have no idea of the veracity or accuracy of 'psychology today' in particular, but clearly there are people better qualified than I who say there's a link.

    We've agreed about many things. Not this though. People are different, narcissism absolutlely is a characteristic of some suicides. It may not be of others and I accept your experience may be otherwise of course but that doesn't make it the silliest thing all week.

    This bollocks really does do my head in. She made something like 10 million quid from singing Princes song. And we are supposed to feel exactly what because she can't cope with life? The bloke who does my gardening for 15 quid a fucking hour has had a worse life than this by more than a small margin. Give me a fuckin' break.
