    Oh Really, I think you're just irrational.

    I'm not your mate, so don't know why you mentioned that.

    The news are depressing, you will be much happier not knowing about them.
    Ignorance is bliss.
    Also don't go online on facebook,twitter, any of the news sites, use youtube only and only to listen to songs and don't read the comments.

    Trust me you will be much happier and free.
    I used to think that you could be happier by being ignorant and perhaps in the short term you can.

    However, you can't live in the clouds forever, one day you'll get a wake up call which will be a 1000 times worse than if you were paying attention to the goings on in the world.

    There is no excuse for ignorance, you have a duty to protect yourself through knowing about the world. Protect yourself from the darkness that life holds by observing how it affects the world. The news and the world wide web are powerful tools to aid you in protecting yourself.

    Typical reaction. People know it's an opinion so they try call their opinion "fact" or the truth" in order to validate it when it doesn't at all.

    They sky is red and that's a fact. Oh okay, since you call it a fact it's got to be true. Idiots.

    I like reading the news because its depressing, because:

    a) Nobody wants to read positive news. That's boring. Everyone loves a bit of crime, terror and scandal.

    b) Reminds me that no matter how chitty I feel, it could be worse.

    Instead of beating around the bush, can you provide valid reasons as to in what way has your post added value on this thread.

    If you don't have a half decent answer to this, then you pretty much need to re-evaluate life.

    Your post has no meaningful bearing to the OP and instead a reaction tactic.

    No ****, sherlock.

    I rest my case. Your post is and in fact, non constructive (i.e: no value) as per site rules.

    Don't blame me when your post gets taken down soon.

    I love how you resort to parroting instead of trying to reason. Very typical.

    I disagree, I think ignorance takes away your right to have opinions, so no Ignorance is not bliss.
    Ignorance is bliss... To an extent ofcourse; It does not take away your right to have opinions, your opinions are simply wrong. Sometimes not knowing much allows you to live more care and hassle free, which equates do less stress and a higher quality of life. You can either chose to be ignorant and live in a bubble or face the realities of life which are harsh at many times.

    I'm sorry, I meant *correct opinions.

    It takes away your right of knowledge though, you need to know what is going on, I agree...ignorance is bliss to an extent.
