    You're joking?
    You would rather have interesting and bad news than just boring and not life changing news?

    Well, I thought, wow - I was in disbelief really. But not in an excited way. Yes I thought this is a tradgedy, this is very important, but I would rather hear dull news than something like that.

    Although it was shocked, digusted, stunned etc when I first heard about it, it annoyed me that the news kept on showing it over and over again and hyped up a real sense of fear among everyone.
