Has Smoke On The Water taught us anything? Fire,flares,a crowded concert,one entrance/exit.I read an article about this incident.It's a terrible loss of life at a venue that should know better and a band member who in the heat of the show,killed alot of kids with his flare antics.According to witnesses,he lit a flare as part of the show and held it straight up to where it caught the cheap soundproofing panels on fire that spread very quickly.So fast that one of the members of the band was killed also.
Terrible and avoidable tragedy.

Sounds alot like West Warwick, Rhode Island. History repeats.

There's been several *disco dance club fires* in different cities over the years that had high numbers.I think either Italy,Russia or China had the biggest loss of life although there was one in Thailand that killed hundreds.I feel for the families.The ID proccess has gotta be gruesome at best.Not from just burns,but by the stampede.It was hard for the firefighters to get in because of all the bodies piled up against the other side of the door,4-5 deep going back 20-30ft..Terrible shame.Scary way to go man. {-

Netherlands has one too, New Year's 2001. Killed 14, but what was so sad was that most kids at the cafe were under 20. What shocked me though was that there were kids of 13 years old there, what does a kid that age do at such an event? The causes were the Christmas decoration (which was real spruce twigs and had dried considerably) and somebody held up a sparkly. Also there were too little emergency exits and too many people. The event would tense up fire safety regulations severely.

Weird. I haven't even thought of the guy in years, but Wrap it Up and Pink Floyd The Wall were the first two records I bought as a young lad from Turtles records. I miss that place.

Your story reminds me of when I purchased an old Turtles LP and my niece bought a slightly used Pink cd from Mr. Floyd Wall's garage sale last summer.

Bones that were found in a Leicester parking lot actually belong to king Richard III (that's the one who allegedly locked the princes in the Tower of London, you know, the My Kingdom For A Horse guy).

Actually its not. Being an Atheist is as much an act of faith due to non-proveability as is Religeon is! :)
(I guess they do say that though...)

That is incorrect. Atheism is simply a non-belief in a god. It is not an act of faith at all. It only means that the person does not believe there is a god. There is no element of dogma or proof involved, although some are so very desperate to make it seem so. Non-belief does not require faith. Non-belief does not require evidence or proof. An atheist simply just does not think there is a god.

Dammit.
