      Seaplane Crash O_O

      I...um...just witnessed...from the comfort of my lovely 14th floor balcony high rise apartment...the final moments of over a dozen people, as they burned to death and plummeted into the Bay in front of me. I, don't know what else to say for right now.

      Just be thankful for what you have. And, live each moment as if it is your last. Because it just might be. There's alot more I could say, but I just can't right now. I'm watching the rescue divers.

      <3 nina

      edit: It's not looking so good

      edit 2: looks like all 19 people onboard are dead http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/10534159

      I've been watching it on CNN for a while, now.

      Wow, you saw it, Nina?

      I also saw it on the news. That's just awful and I can't imagine having witnessed it.

      Having recently experienced the loss of a dear friend, I've found myself more and more appreciating the lives of those around me. And as nina said, live each day to the fullest.

      I just saw the footage on CNN tonight. They kept replaying it. All I could think was that must be the most horrendous thing for the victim's families to have to see over and over and over again. Especially this close to Christmas.

      That's awful. They were still searching for one more victim last time I watched. I couldn't even imagine what I would have felt if I'd seen such a tragedy live.

      I really do hope they find that last person.

      I was wondering if you saw that

      You are 100% right though. Live every moment to it's fullest because you never know, it just might be your last.

      How very sad...

      The best of wishes to the friends and family members of the loved ones who died in the accident.
      Reality Check. Now.

      I'm sorry you had to witness that, Nina. I can only try to imagine how disturbing it must be.

      You're right, that was bloody callous of me, and I apologise.

      I wish the families and others affected by it all the best, it would be hard dealing with such a random incident.

      Oh fuck that, no one gives a shit about the people dying slow, horrible deaths from hunger and oppression in some foreign country! If you have never donated one cent to any of those people then why the fuck should you care about some mid to upper class society people on their way to exploit underprivileged people on some paradise island? And for those of you who have, you may skip below remarks.

      Death is pretty much always a horrible thing - but put the shit in perspective every now and then and you'll realize that this is nothing more than a group of army ants caught under God's magnifying glass on a hot sunny afternoon.

      My sympathies to the families of those who's loved ones perished in that accident - but as for the drama from a simple observation from roller - blow it out your ass! Hell, that same connection ran through my mind as well! Just keep sippin them martinis from your balcony and observing only those few thousand yards before you as if that represents the whole world.

      Joe. You disappoint me.

      Drama? What drama? I don't see any drama. You are the one who has just made the drama. You think it's appropriate to make jokes about people dying? You think that just because they were tourists...that they don't matter? Are you SERIOUS? This has nothing to do with starving people in the world...what the HELL is your point in bringing that up...I'm not allowed to feel bad about watching 20 people die just because there are other people sufferring in the world? That is asinine.

      And the reason I said I watched it from the comfort of my lovely balcony...is just to show how MUCH we really take for granted. So don't throw that shit back in my face about sippin Martinis.

      You must be very bored there...it's ok, I know Ohio SUCKS and it's really cold there and nasty there. My sympathies. Merry Christmas.

      See that's what I don't get... at no point did I make fun of them bursting into flames and plunging into the sea, that'd be something along the lines of "is it just me or is it getting a little hot in here?" etc etc. I simply made an observation on the title of the thread, with no malicious intent to make fun of their deaths, so maybe there is a little drama. I had no idea they were tourists - not that it would change anything - nor anything else about them because it doesn't really concern me, but I'm sorry you took it as making fun of them.

      Merry xmas though

      Nah Roller...you're fine. No worries. You didn't directly make a joke about anyone dying. I guess it was just the fact that you simply posted a senseless and in my opinion inappropriate comment in a serious thread. At least it was serious for me. Quite traumatic actually. Maybe I am making too much of the whole thing. But I hope you can realize that it's a whole other issue when you SEE the damn thing happen in front of you, than when you just read about it in the paper or see it on the news.

      Apparently Tornado Joe doesn't understand this concept.

      And Merry X-mas to you too hun.

      No drama? Oh, sorry, my bad - it's hard sometimes to distinguish between the different Niña's that come into these threads sometimes. Wasn't sure if it was the dramatic and depressing nina as seen in the "Ultimate Betrayal"-type posts, friendly and polite Niña often seen in the Newbie section, or the pissed off and irrational Niña occasionally seen in chat (and which has earned you some "time-out" here on DV). All of which sometimes change with the speed of a flip of a switch.

      My bad, I guess.

      Don't want to turn this into some pissing match - my point was simply that I didn't feel like Roller should have gotten so much grief from you about his observation. And oh, so nice to see how you've both made friends again <sound of a switch flipping>

      And if you think your little "Ohio SUCKS" remarks are gonna hurt me, you're better off putting me down with something that I actually give a crap about (I could give you some suggestions if you'd like). It's nice to hear you're enjoying your new digs down there in Florida - but personally, unless your career has somehow taken off in the last month or so and you're paying for this big move all by yourself, I wouldn't be braggin about it. I may be in sucky ohio, but I'm happy with my spaceous 3 bedroom, two-car garage home which I maintain on my own.

      Anyhoo - sorry for the misunderstanding - cheers

      Joe...we never WEREN'T friends. I didn't go attacking him or anything. He made a comment... then I made a comment. \"Wow...great joke! People dying is FUN-E. LURLURLUR\" Now...where in that comment did I ever insinuate that Roller and I were not friends? It was a sarcastic remark. And you have made a MUCH bigger deal out of it than is necessary. Honestly I DONT GET IT. How is what I said SOOO BAD JOE?

      What the hell is the purpose of this statement??? Yes I am paying for this all by myself. And come wednesday my sister and I will be enjoying a LOVELY 2 bedroom, fully furnished condo right on the beach. So don't attempt to think you are better than me just because you OWN a your home and I don't. Seriously...what the HELL man? I really don't get you or why you have chosen to attack me personally in this thread.

      First you jump all over me for 1 comment I made that was sarcastic but in no way malicious. THEN you continue to attack me by insinuating that I am small minded and only care about what's right in front of me. AND CONTINUE to attack me by suggesting that I am snobbish (sippin martinis) and that I am getting money from my parents...which I'm not. Oh and let's not forget the ATTACK on my personality...thank you so much for that. VERY FUCKING MATURE.

      So...out with it. What the hell did I do. Obviously this is personal.

      That must have been awful! Obviously this is a bit late an all, but I hope it doesn't affect you too much as witnessing an event like that must be stressful. But why do people have to turn something like this into an argument?




      An don't dis Ohio, I used to live there lol! Wait a min, now I think about it, DO dis Ohio

      Have you two had a fight or something?

      And yeah, that must have sucked to see. I know it's really not nice to see people die.
