    i was at work and everyone went silent and i was wondering why and then i saw on tv but some people in my office were in the middle of a call and talked all the way through and i remembered when i was in college and i walked into class days after 9/11 and went "hey guys!" not aware there was a silence across the country and my lecturer told me to 'Shhh!' and everone looked at me but how come there was a silence for 3000 deaths after 9/11 - no silence for 50,000 Iran earthquake victims - but a 3 min silence for tsunami victims - have one for all or none at all that's what i say and you know that's fair you fuckin maggots the doctor is out.

    Jeff Loomis: He's so good, he doesn't need to be dead to have a tribute.

    I think the whole 1 minute silence is useless and I never do this. I always say: 1 minute silence doesnt help the people who need help.

    Maybe it's not about helping them but respecting the dead and mourning their loss.
