I'm not surprised, at all, by gawker having a looping gif of someone dying as their headline. There is nowhere to low to go for Gawker. I am, however, surprised at Blue for linking to it. Did you somehow *NOT* see the headline image? Or are you okay with gifs that show someone plummeting to their death over and over and over and...

It actually took a good 2m to load that for me. If I'd just scrolled down right away, I would have missed it. It's entirely possible Blue thought it was a static image, as it was for me the first 15s or so. If I hadn't been working at the time, I would have totally missed it.

And Europeans don't freak out over sex like America does, and America has the largest prison population in the world by volume and per capita. Hrm...

Is it disturbing because it's real? Because you can actually see the person, as opposed to in a vehicle or aircraft? Because it's in a loop? If it didn't loop would it be less disturbing? Is it just disrespectful? What about the Challenger/Columbia explosion? The fall of the WTC towers? The assassination of JFK?

Keep the population under control? How do you figure? If they're desensitized and no longer disturbed how can they be controlled?

Graphic death is part of the daily news in America? Yeah and bare titties are part of the daily news in Europe, nary a weather update without 'em.

People die, try not to let it bum you out too much or you're always going to be bummed out.

edit: I'm not going to argue that it's not tasteless.

I was a ever so slightly disturbed by the guys dying in a loop too - but I kinda accept graphic death and violence is part of the daily news in America. It's what keeps the populous under control.
