Are you kidding? I think the "old farts" get the most respect at shows, at least back when I was still in that scene!
Don't forget the "Bystander Effect". When NYU students simulated a rape on the streets of Manhattan and people just walked right by it. I love psychology, that's why I'm such a nutjob.

Yeah I'm 180 LBS and I have a lil' gut going on now...I consider myself an old fart, but seeing Eric Clapton 3rd row in was....absolutely....*DROOL*

Yes my name is Jaguar.
No, it is not a joke.
I don't find your "I'm a cheetah." joke funny.

Yeah it is also called bystander apathy and has a lot to do with diffusion of responsibility. But yes, in this case they people just watching the guy get trampled definitely were suffering from this effect.

Agreed. Many folks are.

They didn't help and they even criticized the cops who were actualy trying to save the guy while those people laughed and did nothing to help. If they thought the cops weren't doing a good enough job, then they should have done it themselves. According to Bloomberg, Some people were even asked to leave by store workers and they just continued to shop without any consideration at all. Those miserable brats were more concerned getting a brand new samsung cameras with 1 trillion megapixels and their 100 billion inch lcd tv rather than a life which can't be brought back. Then there are others who decide to go in a shootout at a Toys-R-Us store which was probably filled with kids and even babies. What has this society come to???
Thats hard to watch.... I wish people would wake up. Think about that man who lost his life. His family wont have him around for the holidays because some people "needed" some super deals for their families.

This is a trajedy, but it's not like America and the West have a monopoly on stampedes.

I find this type of behavior appalling. I was watching G4 yesterday and they showed a clip of people at Wal-Mart fighting over an xbox 360 bundled with Guitar Hero 2. In the clip, there was this seemingly nice old lady shoving people out of the way to grab one and she was yelling at someone else.

The video was kind of blurry but it just made me shake my head. Do these people not realize how stupid they are acting? Obviously not or they wouldn't be acting that way. But I wonder if they would act that way if they could actually see themselves and how they are acting..

And again, all in the name of Christmas...

Use not abuse the rep system!
