Was the point made or did you just die a horrible death in vein?
Well, the entire Middle East broke because of one fruit vendor in Tunisia that had set himself on fire.
You got video of that dude setting himself on fire yesterday?
you made a thread about it so...
I was referring to the guy that set himself on fire yesterday.
Yeah, and I asked you if you had video of it.
I think you die in vein. No one gives a shit! I for one could care less that this asshole burned himself to death. I'm still eating chicken nuggets and conducting my normal day.
A bunch of joggers ran over to put him out with their shirts.
I would have been all 'iphone video in progress'.
If you set yourself on fire, or eat a bullet the only point you make is that everything you imagined people are saying about you, is true.
I told you in post #2 that it can have an impact.
I dont know if one exists.
I think the buddhist guy in saigon made a difference in world opinion, for sure
Not this time, no one cared
man how devoted and disciplined to you have to be to do that?
Would you set yourself on fire in protest?
Lets rediscuss this topic one week from today.
If this guy yesterday had an agenda, it was a miserable time to make his point. Friday afternoon is not the time to make news.
But, if the guy sent some diatribe to the media (i.e. did it because against Obamacare, did it because can't get medical care during shut down)before he did this yesterday, and the media decides to run with the issue on Monday. Then we'll see if it had any impact.
My guess is that this won't have any impact. If it was meant to send a message, it could have been done much better.
LOL, no sir
OMG it's the cover from Rage Against the Machine's first album
The only thing that could impact the outcome is if a video surfaces. We need to see him burned to a crisp to get a better perspective.
