    First the plane crash, and the sudden death of Heath Ledger to welcome us to 2008, and now a big fire in Las Vegas........

    So far it has to be said Ive never seen so much bad stuff to happen in the space of like 7 years (9-11, London bombings x2, debt, quite a few deaths of talented people, and possibly a recession too......)

    Eh?

    This is probably the maddest thread I have ever read. I cannot think of a single day where something horrific isn't happening somewhere in the world. At this moment in time there are wars, famines, droughts, floods etc... happening everywhere with literally millions of people dying daily as a consequence.

    The plane crash was pretty insignificant (nobody died). Heath Ledger dying is an isolated incident only made significant by him being famous and the bbc says "No-one is reported to have been injured and the cause is not yet known." about the fire in Las Vegas.


    Your qualification for how sad a news story is seems to relate to how many white western people it affects. Some significant news stories from the last week that don't get a mention:

    Yeah there's really no need to start with all that. Thanks for your comments. Enough said on the matter.

    OP ... Lawrenzini has a point in that you're being extremely subjective, selective, and lets just say Anglo-American-centric

    ... and YES the plane crash was insignificant in that there was no loss of life ... and so it seems is the Las Vegas fire

    There is absolutely no pattern, well over 3 bad things happened as soon as the first people on the globe saw in the New Year

    People die everyday, bad things happen everyday, someone has debt problems everyday

    And its hardly the 'New Year' anymore, more bad things and deaths will occur later today, tommorow, Monday, and next month too I expect

    Lawrenzini got there before me, 3 totally insignificant events of 2008 so far, some tin pot actor dies, wow.

    so many other tragedies not reported.

    no offence intended but to think those 3 things you mentioned are the only 3 "bad things" to happen in the year so far is crazy i cant get my head round it.
