  3. I watch the news in the exact same amount I used to. There's nothing I can do about it anyway. (no, really, there isn't, as much as people say there is, there isn't)

  4. @alex nobody uses that word. weltschmerz:

    A German term meaning "world pain." It describes a sense of anguish about the nature of existence, usually associated with a melancholy, pessimistic attitude. Weltschmerz was expressed in England by George Gordon, Lord Byron in his Manfred and Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, in France by Viscount de Chateaubriand, Alfred de Vigny, and Alfred de Musset, in Russia by Aleksandr Pushkin and Mikhail Lermontov, in Poland by Juliusz Slowacki, and in America by Nathaniel Hawthorne.

    @hayo your confusing

    @michael tv is depressing which is why I hardly ever watch local news. I finding stuff overseas more entertaining.
