    Something I've always considered. It's ratjer odd how socially (un)acceptable jokes and comments can be depending on how long after the events it's been. Maybe it's just an obvious fact? Maybe it's wrong that we judge how serious/tragic something is/was depending on how long ago they were? Maybe it's because diasters closer to NOW feel more...relatable? I'd like to know what you think. Cheers, J.J

    EDIT: This more concerns National/International disasters opposed to family issues and the like.

    Well I know that usually after a big tragedy like someone passing away, or something bad happening to the victim, the person can generally talk about this event more. Like for example if someone in my family passed away in a car accident this year, I might feel really down and depressed now but in 10 years even if it still upsets me I'd be able to talk about it more - like I've 'moved on'. Though I wouldn't appreciate any jokes about it.
Which accompaniment is best?
