I wasn't sure where to post this and I'm not sure if it was discussed previously but here are some interesting thoughts about the "Fearless Girl" statue on Wall Street and the fuss made by the sculptor of the charging bull:

Looks like the guy who did it has had two previous arrests for DUIs.

It's a sign of the fucked-up world we live in when you're relieved it's a drunk asshole, not an act of terror.

Stuff like this and what happened at the Bataclan are literally my worst nightmare. I hope people are okay, unfortunately fatalities have been confirmed

A balloon popped near me last night at U2 and I was *terrified*. This is a shitty fucking situation we now find ourselves in.

Praying for the victims' families, and those who are injured. What a nightmare.

All needless death is heartbreaking. That live music has now become a direct target hits way to close to home.

Just fucking awful. I can't even..

Terrorists and white supremecists who kill (and in general) can suck my dick.

i remember when i was in high school the security overreacted when people "pop" plastic bags but in hindsight they were reasonable to be scared of that popping noise.

I know some people on this site dislike/despise Sam Harris, but this is an interesting listen. He reads directly from the Dabiq, which is the ISIS magazine they publish. In light of what happened in Manchester, and what seems to be a way of life, I found a better understanding of what would push someone into this mindset.

I would not be lying when I say that during the 1st night in the Rose Bowl, I was looking to the sky at any flying object, and felt the buildup to "Bomb blast lightning waltz" hoping to all hope that wasn't the trigger moment for an event.

I am not generally a paranoid person (maybe I was from the sheer insane quantity of pot smoke in section 16), but U2 in the Rose Bowl? I felt like it could be a target. For sure.

Yep, appears so.

Ariana Grande and other big stars to perform in Manchester tomorrow, to benefit victims of the last, most recent attack in the UK...
