    I am really sad for this actor, his friend and their families, but all the dancing around the fact that they were driving too fast makes me wary - the whole "the car was acting up, this is a car that needs respect, the driver was a professional so something must have happened, speed may have been a factor, etc..."
    Looking at the pictures, it is pretty obvious that speed was definitely a factor: it may not be the reason casuing the impact, but it is definitely one of the reasons why the accident was deadly.

    Am I the only one who finds the whole "watch the recording of the impact" thing really creepy and macabre?

    No. I've not clicked on a single video. I have no desire to see the moment two people lost their lives.

    Agree. It's ghoulish in the extreme.

    i agree. it's like people saying "you care when a celebrity dies, but don't care about poor children in africa dying". if every single one of those poor children were displayed on the screen 24/7, we'd mourn them as well.
    Somebody should do that, preferably without commercials. Paul Walker sounds like he would've approved of the idea - since he was more interested in charity than celebrity.

My other brothers (two of them) we always say it when we talk on the phone. The fifth brother is an asshole and I try NOT to say it because he pisses me off. I worry I don't say it enough to my mom due to my deep seeded/seated resentments on things from my childhood... but she's got to where she won't get off the phone without the "I love you". So, I say it to her and I mean it, I'm just not as free with it to her as I am with my brothers and, my snowflake!
    My SO thinks I'm crazy because I always say the same thing. I tell him that I love him and to be careful. I tell my mom and my family that I love them and miss them every time we talk. I don't want those things left unsaid.

    Your snowflake sounds like an awesome kid!!

    "melted together" sounds like something teenagers on Pinterest will somehow manage to bastardise into those "true love" memes

    And to that stupid meme or whatever about recognising Rodas, OF COURSE Paul is getting more attention, because people actually know of him and, like has been mentioned up thread, feel like they knew him personally. If you invest time in a celebrity you do feel like you know them. If your neighbour and an unknown person were in the same situation, you'd care about the neighbour because you knew them. I hate people trying to get on their shitty moral high horse about this. It's not like no one has spoken about Rodas anyway. It's just human nature. R.I.P to them both.
    I agree.

    People I have known since childhood posted stuff like that on Facebook. I wanted to respond to some with, "Funny, since you said dick all to me when my Mom died." Just seemed like people being pricks for the sake of being a prick.


    To add to the comments on parents or relatives doing interviews right after a death.... I quickly learned that you don't always react the way you would expect. In my family, I have always been known as 'the sensitive one'. My family didn't even tell me right away that our dog went missing because they were scared of how I would react. They always hesitated giving me bad news.
    When my mom passed away in March, I was at my parents' place when the medical examiner called my Dad. I got on the other phone and asked questions for my Dad, asked if there was anything we needed to do on our end (ie paperwork, arrangements, I had never dealt with it before so I didn't know).
    I called the funeral service place to arrange for body pick up and cremation.
    I spoke to them about pricing for cards for the funeral.
    I called the Church to make service arrangements.
    I called my Mom's childhood best friend from another province, called the neighbor's, etc.
    I cleaned up the spot in the living room where my Mom was sitting when she died.

    The ONLY thing I cried at during the whole thing, was when I had to dump the rest of my mom's cup of tea out and wash the cup.

    None of my family could believe how I was taking charge. So I have stopped judging how other's react. Sometimes that person may not even understand how they are reacting the way they are.

    Holy balls, woman. I know it may be inappropriate, but I want to know what your response is, and also, to hear what sort of weak sauce that excuse for a teacher has to send back. Or if they wimp out and put their tail between their legs and don't respond at all. Which, given the circumstances, might be the best reaction. As long as they spend some time thinking about what they were doing.

    You sound like a great mom, Mel. I mean that.

    ^ this. Mel, I very often don't agree with your views, but I respect the hell out of you and you're clearly raising a hell of a kid. Kudos.

    Believe it or not, my kids got into the song from watching "Napoleon Dynamite". It's playing at the end when Napoleon and his gf are playing tetherball as the credits roll. Sublimely weird movie....

    well, that's nice of you guys to say. this particular teacher doesn't really answer my emails. my son says he's dyslexic... I don't know what he's doing teaching geometry if he's dyslexic but the misspelled words drive me insane. apparently, I have a way with words and my son likes to read what I have to say to his teachers BEFORE I send it. one incident this year left my son saying "you know, mom? I'm just going to talk to him about it myself. if you send that, he WILL CRY!". So, even though I'm positive the guy was out of line with my kid, the kid would rather handle it himself. Which, I do kind of enjoy because I like to know he can handle business if I'm not there to slap some sense into the idiots.
