Death-Zone

8

“There’s a small movie in a movie, so to speak, where no one says a word. Instead, the guys just look at each other and they all know — Till’s not going to make it, neither up nor down. And this aluminum plate is actually a very important thing for every alpinist: some climbers have a photo of themselves on it and if something happens, it becomes a memorial stone. So Olli is actually making a gravestone for Till, knowing that his future is written. There’s a death zone on Everest. You have no chance of bringing down a dying or a dead person from up there, because it’s hard enough to get down on your own. That was actually the key factor for me to film this scene. They carry him up, fully aware that they will definitely not come back down all together. I think, this part is the greatest, because the unity in the band is the main point of the video.”

So you know how no one takes death seriously in the zones because everyone believes in the Phoenix Witch?

Well, there are some killjoys that take this too far.

If you’ve ever read the book or seen the movie Felidae, it’s a bit like the group of cats who electrocute themselves in hope of purifying their souls (or something like that, it’s been awhile since I’ve seen it). They kill themselves in gruesome, ritualistic ways to purify their souls for the Witch, and it’s not pretty.

OKAY SO here’s a thing about Yuudai

every time they die, their body and soul is sent to another random location in the universe. they “respawn”, per se, somewhere far away from their death zone, where no one would recognize them.

every life, they’re a bit different.

this life, the one where they’ve met tsukiko, is their 7th life.

their next one will be much kinder.

Selfies mask the scary picture

Some countries are identifying ‘no selfie zones’ amid deaths and injuries resulting from the craze

The growing culture of selfies has now moved into a dangerous territory where people are placing themselves in harm’s way just to take a quick snap.

Last year alone, there were 27 deaths worldwide, of which half occurred in India, reported the Washington Post.

Some of the people injured or killed were reported to have been taking a selfie in front of an oncoming train, on the edge of a cliff, or tipped over the edge of a boat.

Growing up in the ‘i-generation’, many adolescents and young adults have fallen into the pattern of taking dozens of selfies every day and posting them on social media sites such as Facebook and Instagram with the expectation of receiving comments praising them or a high number of likes. Some are even risking their own safety just to receive that sense of gratification from their online friends.

The selfie trend has often been criticised by many psychologists who described it as narcissistic behaviour and a call for attention.

Dubai’s Clinical psychologist, Dr Saliha Afridi, director of Light House Arabia, puts it down to two main explanations — the need for a thrill and the need for attention.

“It comes down to a person’s neurobiology and neurochemistry. A thrill seeker who previously didn’t have the mechanism of capturing their risky moment are able to thrill-seek and review attention at the same time through the selfie movement,” she said.

An attention seeker on the other hand, may be one who is so desperate for a big number of ‘likes’ online that they are willing to do increasingly sensational and original acts to receive the attention, explained Dr Afridi.

She pointed out that a person’s motivation to take a selfie in a high-risk situation could range from neurobiological and neurochemical differences that result in the dopamine reward being less reactive, to simply having low confidence. “Some people lack in sense of self and self-esteem that they reply heavily on external validation and approval. They will go out of their way for posting a picture that will bring them to centre stage — even if it means being six feet underground,” said Dr Afridi.

The act can also be a matter of young age and an inaccurate appraisal of the risks involved in a situation. Neuroscience research has shown that the adolescent brain — ages under 24 — seeks both thrill and attention while undercalculating the risks in activities. The frontal lobe, which is responsible for decision making and thinking through consequences, is not fully developed until after the age of 24, explained Dr Afridi.

“While the brain is under construction, the chemicals in the adolescent brain are responsible for much of the risk taking and underestimation of risks,” she said.

Nevertheless, with more cases of death or injury being reported every year due to selfies, some countries are identifying ‘no selfie zones’ across their cities. Mumbai police have identified more than a dozen such zones around India’s largest city after three young girls were swept out into the Arabian Sea while taking selfies in a rocky part of the Bandra area, reported the Post.

i need to know if im the only one who, after finishing a good movie, will go and just search out everything about the movie or the story behind it 

like damn i went in it for jake gyllenhaal and now i know so much trivia about the nepalese death zone

Gun free zones are death traps for the innocent. They are unconstitutional in their infringement of the 2nd amendment, the constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms. They are unlawful in their infringement of local, state, and federal laws guaranteeing the people’s right to carry firearms openly or concealed in defense of self, loved ones and the innocent. They are unconscionable in that they mandate victimhood among the law-abiding and serve to empower criminals, madmen, and terrorists. When someone is intent on causing mass chaos and hurting good people, the first thing they do is find the nearest gun free zone. They know that they will be met with minimal resistance in these areas and it will take the police minutes to arrive on scene, giving them plenty of time to inflict harm on the innocent. Rather than declare an area “gun free,” wait until a criminal or terrorist enters that area to hurt people, and then call the police to bring the legal guns back into the area, why not do away with the gun free zones and allow people to exercise not only their constitutionally-ensured right to carry arms, but their fundamental human right to defend themselves? The faster someone can meet force with force, the less likely someone is to cause massive harm to the innocent. Also, being that an overwhelming majority of mass shootings occur in gun free zones, doing away with them could act as a deterrent to these madmen. There is a reason they choose gun free zones - the knowledge that there will not be someone there with a gun to shoot back. If we simply allow people to exercise their rights freely, as they should be able to, we could see a decrease in these tragedies. When concealed carry permit issuance increases in an area, violent crime decreases. This points to a direct correlation, and common sense dictates that people carrying legal guns deters violent criminals from preying on them. You cannot eliminate victimhood by mandating it. You cannot prevent violence by empowering the violent. You cannot legislate away evil. #2A #2AFight #2ndAmendment #NRA #USCCA #NAGR #DefendTheSecond #MolonLabe #ThePewPewLife #CCW247 #Guns #DontTreadOnMe #Gunsense

“Deaths-Head Revisited” has to be one of my favorite episodes of The Twilight Zone. It’s right up there with “The Changing of the Guard.” 

The reason why it’s one of my favorite episodes is because it touches on why we have to remember the horrible moments in history. We have to be aware that these horrible events did happen because the moment we forget we have learned nothing.
