Title: Society has lost its fraking mind...
Mood: sad
Music: Les Poissons - Little Mermaid
Been slack on blogging about this... Perhaps I was just too damn depressed reading about it. (from an AP story)

Two people are being charged with a first degree felony for drawing an arrow with flour on a parking lot. Of course, this caused people to lose their fucking minds and an entire store was evacuated and police were called.

Here's a stoopid quote from the Mayor's office:

“You see powder connected by arrows and chalk, you never know,” she said. “It could be a terrorist, it could be something more serious. We’re thankful it wasn’t, but there were a lot of resources that went into figuring that out.”

Well, it could be a terrorist... It could be space aliens or a message from god. Or it could just be something fraking harmless you idiot! The reason a lot of resources went into figuring out it was harmless is because people are fraking idiots and are too fraking scared of their own shadows that they can't just stop and think for a second or two.

Everyone is so terrified of letting the next problem sneak past that we are collectively jumping at any sound in the night and calling 911 for every creak on the stairs or drip of the faucet.

So now two more people are caught up in a legal nightmare because some other people are convinced they are personally going to die in the next problem. And now we have another thing (running scavenger hunts) that used to be fun until gorram idiots scared it into submission.

No fraking wonder people claim things used to be better... we didn't used to be so damn scared of everything. It wasn't ignorance of the threat because there is no threat now, its just overreaction and fraking craziness!
