In today's world were thousands are being killed in dubiously moral wars and millions in famine are we concerning ourselves more with the likes of Jade Goody? What has she achieved? Who has she helped? What has she left behind? The answer to these questions should be obvious yet to the growing majority in the media and society they believe her to be an important aspect of modern culture, enough so to be put on the front page of not just the tabloids, yet the mid-markets and even the broadsheets. Yet most people simply aren't smart enough to ask questions.

    Today in study plus (a lesson which I disagree with all together seeing as it is only an excuse to keep the rest of the students occupied whilst the aim-higher group are being manipulated into picking universities, a group which I refused to take part in despite being offered) We were given a lesson on how the media use writing techniques to display the "News" We were given a news article. Was it about the Pakistani terrorist attack? Perhaps an article on the current financial downturn? The War on terror? Gordon Brown's visit to the white house to discuss the future of Britain and America? No It was a group of articles on Jade Goody's struggle with cancer, Now personally I am disgraced that a school supposedly responsible for teaching hundreds of young and impressionable minds and preparing them for adult life have taken part in clouding there minds with this mindless drivel, I only hope you Mr. ****** look into the lesson which Miss ****** has arranged and sanctioned, thank you for reading.
    Sounds like a good debate to bring up in the class...or is debate frowned upon hence your leaving?

    Nooo...I think it sounds great. Much different to the languages that sound like a Werther's Original has gone down the wrong way. Sounds like they're singing.

    Isn't greed just a made up abstract concept anyway, that the 'herd' can manipulate to justify their own situation as being 'better' or more 'moral' than another? Whilst equality is an important part of a society, if gained fairly (hmm) why should one feel guilty for accumulation of wealth? Especially if this average standard is determined by environment, different standards in an African town than Luxembourg for example.
    I don't see how creating an abundance of energy = greed though...energy's a basic necessity for life these days. One person hoarding available energy and selling it as a massive price would = greed.

    I think greed is something the 'herd' embraces as they compete with their neighbours to get better cars and bigger houses. Banks inviting people to get into massive debts as they tried to keep up with The Jones helped us get into the situation we're in at the moment.

    Greed clouds over better moral judgements and creates a 'me,me,me' approach...it's not the same as accumulating wealth through proficiency at something.

    No sex please, we're eunuchs - Health News, Health & Wellbeing - The Independent

    In the past, eunuchs enjoyed the patronage of Hindu kings in whose courts they would sing and dance to ward off evil spirits. Today they play on the deep superstitions of Indian families, threatening the families of male new-borns and brides with the "Evil Eye". Most of India's 800,000 eunuchs are castrated as children to make them appear more like females.

    Yeh, but you know why taken guys are automatically more attractive to girls? Because they can get some attention without fear of being face raped

    Uppercut's right. It happens all the time, one that I remember a few years back, I was at a 21st and there was a really hot barmaid practically begging me for it, a few years later I'm drunk and alone, and where are the hot barmaids now? Nowhere!

    You'd think being drunk would help the hot barmaids appear, apparantly not.

    And considering your starting point, that really doesn't bode well...

    Nah, its all part of a conspiracy to degrade men into nothing more than sex objects, and to torture them.
