It beggars belief how so many people in the world, still suffer under repressive regimes and adher ...

If I should ever need to explain sarcasm to someone, may I quote your comment?

That's a shame.

However, there are killings everywhere. In the US, the murderer's use guns. Elsewhere, they use knives, bats, etc.

Granted, the cops would have some kind of chance if the murderer were using a billy club or knife, and it is sure a better chance of running away...

I bet it happens all the time in China, only it is not even worthy of being publicized.

One time, I was on the phone with my wife while she was in Guangzhou and I heard some ruckus in the background. She said her neighbor was beating his wife. I asked why doesn't she hang up with me and call the cops. She said the cops won't get involved in domestic disputes there. Wow.

See? Different countries, different problems.

Here, we have mass murders now and then. There, domestic violence is tolerated and murders are carried out with more primitive weapons.

The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.

yes, your avatar picture shows the current state of the glass... it answers the question,
what is in the glass that is half full and/or half empty?

The value of a glass is the emptiness within. If you need to ask the question as to its contents, would you understand the answer?
