I hate this stupid world


You know that Skydiver accident that's been in the news in the US?

My mom said this in an email. At the end of the day, we watched the news and heard about a plane crash of skydivers at Lost Prairie outside of Kalispell. One of the 5 who died in the crash was Joel Atkinson.

And there's another article

I fucking grew up with Joel. Since...forever. His father and my mother were both on the city council and they were really good friends so they were at our house all the time. His older brother, Wade babysat us. He was the best babysitter. I went to high school with them. Mostly Wade, because Joel left school and got his diploma through my mom's GED program. We used to ride in their car and I remember him teasing his mother because she couldn't say 'aluminum'. And we went to Glacier Park and to the Bison Range outside Missoula together a few times. Wade got bitten by a garter snake because he's a stooge. We went to his grandparents house. They had this huge pond... Poor Wade. Poor Jim and Gail :(

Goddammit. This isn't fucking fair. It's really really not.

Buffy: Does it ever get easy?

Giles: You mean life?

Buffy: Yeah. Does it get easy?

Giles: What do you want me to say?

Buffy: Lie to me.

Giles: Yes, it's terribly simple. The good guys are always stalwart and true, the bad guys are easily distinguished by their pointy horns or black hats, and, uh, we always defeat them and save the day. No one ever dies, and everybody lives happily ever after.

Buffy: Liar

Heh. Yeah.
