Do I really have anything to say that doesn't sound Cliche? No I do not. Blah blah, individuality, blah blah, I'm cool, blah blah etc. This is the internet. Nobody gives a single blue fuck.

Would you ever DECIDE to watch someone be killed or die, that is the point I'm making in the below comment.

I have. Out of a sick, morbid curiosity. Did I enjoy what I saw? Absolutely not. Did I want to see more? Yes.

ahh okay, i read this late. . . Yeah I meant in real life. . .

I've seen people die in videos as well, not on purpose.

and I'm sorry that you have this craving. I hope if you knew the people dying it would be a different story.

yes.

I would rather not elaborate on that. I'll simply say it was very unpleasant. You skepticism is neither unwarranted nor unreasonable; this is the internet, and not statement I make is able to be proven. However, I am not lying. Take that however you like.
User avatar #171 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
No, I believe you now that I know it wasn't physically in front of you, and it was a video. . . Most people on FJ, and probably all people on /b/ have seen a video of someone die.
User avatar #173 - tonyromee (08/02/2012) [-]
I have seen someone die in real life. 3 someones, actually. my elaboration comment was in reference to the comment regarding willingly seeing death again. Would I want to see it in real life again? I can honestly not give you an answer there, because I do not know. Would I watch a show where contestants played for their lives? In a heartbeat. Most of the world would, given time.

Also shows involving death already exist, I'm sure you know 1000 ways to die, and the darwin awards, and I bet there's more I don't know about, but none involving footage of real death. . . That alone is the point I'm trying to make.

Then your point is made, and I already validated it. My point was, that is what is on the horizon for the future. People will demand it, this is my prediction, based on an extensive knowledge of human history based on 10 years of thorough study and observation, both from text/media and from real life experience, as well as a fairly through knowledge of human nature and psychology via years of study and observation.

yes death is in everything, it is a part of life, its inescapable, but I don't agree that people enjoy watching genuine death, unless there's something wrong with them.
User avatar #157 - tonyromee (08/02/2012) [-]
Murder and death are not quite the same thing, and I should not have mentioned them together. For that I apologize.

But saying people do not have a fascination with real death shows a lack of knowledge of the history of the human race.

Agreed, death does sell, but only recreated, fake death is what has been sold since there was a video medium to sell.

" If someone died, on air, people would demand more."

hahaha, I'm trying to imagine this. Instead of the public being horrified, you think they would say, "THAT WAS AWESOME, I WANT MORE!"

look at the batman movie theater deaths, no one thought that was cool and wants more of it. They didn't even see the death, They just heard about it. People in general have a moral dislike for real death.

as for the "real" deaths in the Faces of Death I'd like some proof. Assuming they were real, it's only one example, and you admitted there was a shit-storm, people were upset. I don't think the part of this generation that enjoys (real) gore has any influence on the media changing their standards.

(Hey, you spelled die wrong, maybe it was on purpose somehow, also this means you admit: "to this day, based on what we know, TV has not shown real death." Furthermore, I seriously doubt the RIAA would allow this in the near future.)
User avatar #151 - tonyromee (08/02/2012) [-]
It probably will not happen in the next ten years, but I do believe that shows like the Running Man will eventually air. People love death, whether they admit it or not. There are individuals who do not like death, but as a whole, people demand it. They always have. Take a look at history, and the things people have done to each other and tell me death is not a human desire.

The RIAA does not have absolute power, nor would they be able to stop the people from airing what they want to see if the people demanded it. Especially since the RIAA only represents music, and only in america. I think you meant the MPAA, and they only have a say in motion pictures.

If you play video games, take a look at your library. Then, tell me how many of your games involve killing something. Then look at your movie collection, and the movies that are in theatres. Count how many of them show scenes involving death. Shit, even Disney movies involve death. I want you to think of one single form of media that is not infatuated with the idea of murder, death, and violence.

User avatar #147 - tonyromee (08/02/2012) [-]
yes, the book is fiction. This does not make it any less possible for the future. Imagine if someone had died on the show Fear Factor. The thought that it might happen again, whether the show was aired or not, would make people curious. Yes, there would be controversy. Nothing in this world can exist without controversy anymore. But the show's ratings would skyrocket to astronomical levels.


People have a horrible fascination with death, and always have. French nobility used to have sex on the balconies overlooking the guillotine as people were beheaded. Countless tribes of people used sacrifices as a means to procure various benefits. Vampire legends, and zombie movies, and all kinds of media revolve around death. If someone died on air, people would demand more.


The running man was a work of fiction, but it was based on observations King had made over the years, and I feel while the timing is a bit off, the possibility of the running man or the long walk happening in the not-too-distant future is not really improbable.

Watch the Faces of Death. Several people die in that movie. Not all the deaths were real, but quite a few were. The movie caused a massive shitstorm, and was banned in quite a few countries. But this is a different generation, and this generation loves gore.

It might explain my comment a little more. Death gets publicity. Ever see the show 1000 ways to die? or the movie faces of death?
User avatar #140 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
yeah but not the moment of an accidental unplanned death.

they never show someone dying on tv, maybe the gorey aftermath, or a "dramatic representation / recreation" but think back to just one time you ever someone dye, for real, on tv.

(Hey, you spelled die wrong, maybe it was on purpose somehow, also this means you admit: "to this day, based on what we know, TV has not shown real death." Furthermore, I seriously doubt the RIAA would allow this in the near future.)
User avatar #151 - tonyromee (08/02/2012) [-]
It probably will not happen in the next ten years, but I do believe that shows like the Running Man will eventually air. People love death, whether they admit it or not. There are individuals who do not like death, but as a whole, people demand it. They always have. Take a look at history, and the things people have done to each other and tell me death is not a human desire.

The RIAA does not have absolute power, nor would they be able to stop the people from airing what they want to see if the people demanded it. Especially since the RIAA only represents music, and only in america. I think you meant the MPAA, and they only have a say in motion pictures.

If you play video games, take a look at your library. Then, tell me how many of your games involve killing something. Then look at your movie collection, and the movies that are in theatres. Count how many of them show scenes involving death. Shit, even Disney movies involve death. I want you to think of one single form of media that is not infatuated with the idea of murder, death, and violence.
User avatar #158 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
Also shows involving death already exist, I'm sure you know 1000 ways to die, and the darwin awards, and I bet there's more I don't know about, but none involving footage of real death. . . That alone is the point I'm trying to make.

Then your point is made, and I already validated it. My point was, that is what is on the horizon for the future.

Murder and death are not quite the same thing, and I should not have mentioned them together. For that I apologize.

But saying people do not have a fascination with real death shows a lack of knowledge of the history of the human race.

yes, the book is fiction. This does not make it any less possible for the future. Imagine if someone had died on the show Fear Factor. The thought that it might happen again, whether the show was aired or not, would make people curious. Yes, there would be controversy. Nothing in this world can exist without controversy anymore. But the show's ratings would skyrocket to astronomical levels.


People have a horrible fascination with death, and always have. French nobility used to have sex on the balconies overlooking the guillotine as people were beheaded. Countless tribes of people used sacrifices as a means to procure various benefits. Vampire legends, and zombie movies, and all kinds of media revolve around death. If someone died on air, people would demand more.


The running man was a work of fiction, but it was based on observations King had made over the years, and I feel while the timing is a bit off, the possibility of the running man or the long walk happening in the not-too-distant future is not really improbable.

Watch the Faces of Death. Several people die in that movie. Not all the deaths were real, but quite a few were. The movie caused a massive shitstorm, and was banned in quite a few countries. But this is a different generation, and this generation loves gore.

" If someone died, on air, people would demand more."

hahaha, I'm trying to imagine this. Instead of the public being horrified, you think they would say, "THAT WAS AWESOME, I WANT MORE!"

look at the batman movie theater deaths, no one thought that was cool and wants more of it. They didn't even see the death, They just heard about it. People in general have a moral dislike for real death.

as for the "real" deaths in the Faces of Death I'd like some proof. Assuming they were real, it's only one example, and you admitted there was a shit-storm, people were upset. I don't think the part of this generation that enjoys (real) gore has any influence on the media changing their standards.

Source."

If you actually watch it, (do, its really really funny) and read the description it says "During a talent show in russia two very untalented men, epically fail their entrance and then the guy with the bow and arrow accidentally shoots the apple guy in the head! P.s the guy survived he did not die"

first of, this means it was a real arrow, and he did get shot in the head. Second, and more importantly: "he did not die." which is why Its allowed on youtube in the first place. I don't know about this being on tv, mainly because its Russian, and I'm not familiar with Russian TV, also it might be a blooper, or an out-take.

no. . . cause youtube takes down all videos where real death is shown. If whoever reviewed it thought they actually died It would be taken down.

Or maybe the guy wasn't really shot in the head and it's just parody video. MIND BLOWN.

Also, there are real deaths on YouTube. This vid has been up for over a year and has over 100,000 views:

Ignoring YOUR shitty patronizing tone implying you're an expert on research, I did read that, and I realize he did not die. This was not the purpose of my comment. The purpose of my comment was to imply that death sells; I elaborated later on.
User avatar #155 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
Agreed, death does sell, but only recreated, fake death is what has been sold since there was a video medium to sell.

I apologize if my tone sounds patronizing, I guess the laughing didn't help, I actually did laugh. That's why I put "haha" I am not an expert on research, nor was I trying to portray that image, you're comment just sounded really douchey.
