I feel like there something ether fuck up going on or something is very wrong here. I feel like there something missing in the story.


I wear earbuds everywhere I go and no matter how the loud music is you would hear a train. I can hear a faraway train over my very expensive computer headset.

Something is definetly missing, like common sense.
It seems like this kid made a conscious decision, suicide seems likely.

As i said before it's not really about the loudness of the music or the type of music, its the focus.

When you're doing something else like listening to music or talking/texing/surfing on your phone, you're less aware of whats going on around you. You tend to pay less attention to whats going on and zone out more.

I zone out all the time and focus hard doesn't make a diffrence that I still can hear things around me even if I don't focus on them if someone asked me something while focused on something else I wold ask them what they said when I was finished, if a train if bearing down behind you it would break your focus.

As i said it's not about hearing it's about attention. I would suggest seeking out the show called you're bleeped up brain and going from there. They do a lot of different type of tests with optical illusions, puzzles and the human response.

As i also stated before they did a test on a busy lunchtime college campus, they were doing all sorts of things that normally when paying attention to whats going on, would make you stop and look at it.
Due to people being on their mobile phones almost everyone that was shown and then interviewed showed no signs of even noticing i believe it was a guy in a clown outfit juggling on a unicycle or something.

The human brain is easily tricked and is highly open to suggestion, hence why some people are so easily manipulated.

If you're going to reply to me do it so I don't have to check the topic every 15 minutes.
Didn't read your new post btw because I'm annoyed that I had to come back to this topic twice by chance seeing that you posted while browsing the forum.

Its just easier not having to do the pyramid quotes or hiding the quotes under a spoiler tag. I can't seem to get just part of the quote right, so meh.

My condolences to his family. I just hope others get the lesson here. Headphones aside, the train tracks are only a short cut to the reaper.

As for headphones, noise cancelling or loud headphones are dangerous from the concept alone. It's why i use clip on earphones, that way you can still here the music but regardless of how loud it is you can still hear everything happening around you.
Though the main thing is to keep your attention on what's happening around you.

Sadly common sense is no longer the norm. Too many times I've seen people blatantly doing actions that could endanger lives yet they choose to be irresponsible. Then they scream murder that they are innocent when they only dig a deeper grave of ignorance.
I just wish people as a whole would wake up to their stupidity, it would save their lives and make the world easier to be in.

Unfortunate tragedy.

This is why I never wear headphones outside.

No doubt that I'd die on day one.

How people still die this way is something that really confuses me, walking along railway tracks or jumping barriers...

Not sure if it is suicide or if he was just stupidly unaware but I am not surprised either way.

People do both with frightening regularity. Same end result of death.
