death

Snuff Film

Yesterday at work I saw the story online about the Georgian luge driver(?)(sledder?)(luger?) who was killed during practice. I was deeply shocked and saddened by the news. I wondered how a terrible accident like that could have happened. When I got home I turned on the news too see more about the story. I was actually surprised that they showed the complete crash. It being network newz, they showed it over and over including zoomed and in slow motion. After the first time I saw it, I was sickened by it. I literally felt like I was watching a snuff film. I have never seen any of the "Faces of Death" movies for a very good reason. I am not turned on by watching "America's Fatal-est Videos."
