I Loathe Humanity

Hah, the garlic didn't get me... or cause testicular dysfunction to my knowledge. (have I mentioned I'm a hypochondriac Shawn? Yeah, thanks. *wink*)

Not feeling very bloggy today, but I must justify my existence somehow so let me document for my own memories sake that yesterday, late in the day my attention was brought to a very horrific video of an American soldier (presumably in Afghanistan) throwing a live puppy off a cliff. I will not post even a link to this evil display of a total disregard for life, because I wish I hadn't seen it, and I don't encourage anyone else to hunt it down. The man (and I use the term very loosely) was a complete monster. Cold and unrepentant to the point of actual pride and nonchalance. Just another example of why I believe the human race is irredeemable. The image is burned into my memory right down to his awful smile and again, for emphasis: I wish I'd never seen it.

There's no appropriate song to offer-up as a conclusion to that one.

Stuff like that is so completely foreign to me, so completely out of my reference set that I can't fathom what inspires someone to do such a thing.

And yes, those who would like to make snarky remarks, I feel the same way about senseless violence against humans.
