that's just pure stupidity for the kids and poor supervision for the parents.
if they blame anime for this tragic accident, then they might as well die underneath the sand

...How long can you stay buried in sand before you realize you can't breathe and stand the f*ck up? He couldn't have been too deep to not be able to get out. He must have been in some serious business role play.

that's sad but... well i know when i was in elementary school we had teachers telling us the dangers of stuff like that. but then, it could just be my area >.>; we have sand piles and stuff around here.

in any case, don't most kids try burying each other in the sand at one point in their lives? these kids just got more carried away apparently >.<;
and just how big was that sandbox? o_O;

Geesh, for a 10 year old, he sure wasn't bright. Where were the parents? Didn't an adult notice something odd was going on? Now people, aka crazy evangelicals/fundamentalist christians, are going to use this an example of the 'evils' of anime (because you know that's gonna happen, if not now, eventually).

i'd like to laugh but i also feel really sad that a kid died that cuz of Naruto.

new tagline: "Naruto kills. Believe It!!"

i dont think theyre gonna make such a big deal out of this. i mean kids and even teenagers have been in accidents and died trying to copy movies like Fast and the Furious so its nothing new.

What an idiot is it just me or are kids actually getting dumber as time passes?


It's not just you. I work in a mental hosputal with kids, and it's not that they are getting dumber, it's that they all seem to have an "I DON'T CARE" attitude, meaning they can logically think it through to what MAY happen; have proof of what WILL happen, but decide they're going to do it anyway. If this kid was "bright and imaginative" then he may or may not have done it as quoted in the article...but think of another angle....what if he didn't want to be buried, but was buried anyway...and onlt when the others saw he wasn't breathing, got scared from what they did and dug him up? Yes, this is a scary, even morbid thought, but it can happen. I personally knew of a boy who was hanged "accidentally" because he and his friends were acting out a scene from a western his father had watched the day before.

Sad, but true, and in today's world....anything is possible.

sucha tragic incident. makes me wonder whether anime is influencing kids too much and whether a limit should be placed on young children..hmms
Posted 3/12/08
yeah
I made thread about it in a group monday night I think
the more I think about it, the more I think that kids have become too sheltered over the years, making them lack the most basic of common sense
