rotten for me is not about amusement, it's about realizing how good we are living. You know, there's an awful lot of shit happening every second, even as I type, and it's good that someone puts these things where we (physically healthy) people can see it. This way, we might learn to value our health and be happy that we're not experiencing what those poor bastards experience.

I never realized how serious it is to wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle. There was a picture on rotten.com of this guy who was killed in a motorcycle accident. His brain was 2 feet from the rest of his body (no longer with his skull) 8O

When I get my bike this year I'm wearing all the protective equipment, I don't want to end up like that guy at all!

That's another good effect rotten has.

They should get some sort of child-protection though. I like the site, but it should be 18+ only. I mean, if kids must not see adults fuck (sorry, have intercourse) then they shouldn't see adults die either, should they?

It is fascinating in its own morbid way. I haven't visited the site for a few years now (and I don't intend to). I agree there should be a warning of some kind for minors (and remove those on porn sites - sex is good and healthy, death is bad).

I don't particularly understand the motives behind rotten.com.

I think it's sick to wish somebody dead. In prison, sure, but don't you understand the nature of death? The total destruction of another human being? The ultimate ending of that person's existence?
(No, I wouldn't want somebody dead if they'd murdered somebody in my family, since you're going to ask me that. Prison for life, yes, death, no.)

Though I do agree with many that there is nothing funny about someone's death, there are lessons to be learned. We cannot walk through life thinking these things don't happen, but we should learn from other's mistakes (ie, not wearing a helmet on a motorcycle).

Besides, not all the pictures on rotten.com are pictures of dead people. And yes there are some that are down right funny.

IE. Michael Jackson's mug shot and Ah-nold in his *ahem* birthday suit.
