I can't work up any outrage . . . really, none of what goes on in this vale of tears is worth it . . .

Could one of you nice folks be outraged for me, and let me know how it works out for ya?

@Setanta,
Well, first of all you ignorant mick, you didn't distinguish betwee Veil of Tears and Vale of tears.

For your edification, here is the Veil of tears

Did that outrage you?

@Letty,
Letty, your attempts at being rude are, frankly, laughable. About as effective as Soz would be.

I wouldn't even be outraged at that.

Better luck next time (ie. your insults need work).

@Setanta,
Actually, Doggie Person, outrage can be a very useful, motivating thing.

Let me explain how it can work for the good.:

You hear or read about something that appears to be an appalling, outrageous thing. Like statistics on the number of homeless people in your own, relatively prosperous country, or the way that asylum seekers are treated when they attempt to enter your country by the only means open to them .. only sometimes to be locked up for years ... Just a couple of sources of my own episodes of outrage ..

Then, if enough people feel the same, they might share their combined outrage with the community, but letters to the editor, by acting in ways that might assist the folk having the tough experience, maybe by joining groups established to address the very source of your outrage, applying pressure to governments & other authorities who have the power to act & change things ...

Now that sort of outrage, as an initial motivator to act, is not at all a bad thing. However, constantly reacting with outrage in your personal dealings with others, as you negotiate your way through life, is not such a great thing. It can (at worst) lead to hatred, desire for revenge, resorting to drugs or drink, developing ulcers & god knows what other nasty complications if you don't get a grip .... so best avoided, as your usual response of choice, I'd say.

@Mame,
If Canadians are going to get cold, they should have health care.

@dlowan,
I'm afraid so.

The variety that leads to ulcers has little going for it, in my humble opinion.

That's an interesting question. Why don't we all grab our harpoons, shoot some whale together, and talk about it in the Australia summer sun over beer and BBQ?
