WORLD! CHILL OUT! srsly.....

So, of course I've been getting nothing but negative energy for a while...... I'm so sick of hearing about raids, governments, blaming each other.....

Anyone have anything positive to contribute about ANNNYYYYTHIIIIIIIIIIIIING going on in the world?

Maybe?

It's starting to ruin my life, no joke.

Please, for the sake of puppies and kittens (so far pretty much the only good things I can think of anymore, besides boyfriend, which is a different story), help me find good things in the world.

Let's post a good-thing list here--yes, in the rants section. Maybe someone else will stumble on in when feeling terrible, and the list will give them a positive lift, however momentary.

Yes? Please? I know I sure could use it.

I agree. Got rid of cable, and watch the only few shows I like on Hulu. I don't hear anything of the news. It does get so tiring and hopeless hearing all the bad stuff that happens all the time.

See, that would work great for me (used to when I lived in the states), but it's hard to stay "ignorant" of world happenings when I live in frickin' Israel. You know, yesterday a couple started shouting threatening and racist things about Jews (aka ANYONE who is not of their religion) on bus #5 (which goes RIGHT through my home bus stop!), and threatened to blow up the bus!!

I'm not saying anything about world religions as a whole, or whatever... I'm sick of the arguements and debate, and I'm not Jewish ORRR Muslim!

Again--sorry, I know I said I want this to be a happy thread, but.... idk. I'll check out happynews.com. I just don't know how to carry on being happy and positive when for all I know, I could be blown up the next time I board a bus to go to work.

You know, Jews, Arabs, and Christians all get along perfectly well until their governments get involved. It didn't used to be like this until a few days ago.

So. Yes. Anything else happy??? xD

(sorry for hijacking my own thread....)

Yeah I think hearing bad news is pretty much everywhere. I don't know how long people can ignore media though :S even if you do someone comes up to you and says "did you hear about this!?" like I didn't watch the news channel at all yesturday yet my mum came up to me and told me about this gunman kinda killing rampage that going on in Cumbria right now :S

Like people have said, the only thing you can do is surround yourself with happy things, funny videos of animals and children as well as listening to your favourite songs really loud and dancing around the house like a nutter etc.

the gunman rampage thing was so sad Happy i mean, what motivates someone to go and do that!?! i suppose as they always say on kids tv news "this is a really rare thing" so i just keep believing that, and being extra-vigilant i spose :S

Apparently he was having an argument with someone and just lost it. I don't own a TV or go on any news websites but you still find out about these things.

I think Newsround is the best. You find out information but it's never depressing, even when it's bad news - and then you get lovely news at the end. And much less patronising than real news.

"Patronizing" is a very good word to have added to that sentence there, knittin' kitten. Happy

yes! i totally agree! everyone i know is so sick of this religious war bs.... all we want is to live in peace. all that aside, though, i wish more people here COULD help out with things like haiti, the oil spill, animal shelters, etc. its shameful that in the year 2010 there are still wars over religion. why cant we all just get along?!?!
