I used to take part in Russian talent shows.

Then I took an arrow to the face.

It might explain my comment a little more. Death gets publicity. Ever see the show 1000 ways to die? or the movie faces of death?

yes, the book is fiction. This does not make it any less possible for the future. Imagine if someone had died on the show Fear Factor. The thought that it might happen again, whether the show was aired or not, would make people curious. Yes, there would be controversy. Nothing in this world can exist without controversy anymore. But the show's ratings would skyrocket to astronomical levels.


People have a horrible fascination with death, and always have. French nobility used to have sex on the balconies overlooking the guillotine as people were beheaded. Countless tribes of people used sacrifices as a means to procure various benefits. Vampire legends, and zombie movies, and all kinds of media revolve around death. If someone died on air, people would demand more.


The running man was a work of fiction, but it was based on observations King had made over the years, and I feel while the timing is a bit off, the possibility of the running man or the long walk happening in the not-too-distant future is not really improbable.

Watch the Faces of Death. Several people die in that movie. Not all the deaths were real, but quite a few were. The movie caused a massive ********* , and was banned in quite a few countries. But this is a different generation, and this generation loves gore.

" If someone died, on air, people would demand more."

hahaha, I'm trying to imagine this. Instead of the public being horrified, you think they would say, "THAT WAS AWESOME, I WANT MORE!"

look at the batman movie theater deaths, no one thought that was cool and wants more of it. They didn't even see the death, They just heard about it. People in general have a moral dislike for real death.

as for the "real" deaths in the Faces of Death I'd like some proof. Assuming they were real, it's only one example, and you admitted there was a ********** , people were upset. I don't think the part of this generation that enjoys (real) gore has any influence on the media changing their standards.
User avatar #159 to #152 - tonyromee (08/02/2012) [-]
They would not say it was awesome, they WOULD be horrified. This does not mean they would not want to see more. Ever watch a train wreck? You want to look away, but you just can't
User avatar #163 to #159 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
Would you ever DECIDE to watch someone be killed or die, that is the point I'm making in the below comment.
User avatar #165 to #163 - tonyromee (08/02/2012) [-]
I have. Out of a sick, morbid curiosity. Did I enjoy what I saw? Absolutely not. Did I want to see more? Yes.
User avatar #167 to #165 - tonyromee (08/02/2012) [-]
(Elaboration: videos, not real life)
User avatar #169 to #167 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
ahh okay, i read this late. . . Yeah I meant in real life. . .

I've seen people die in videos as well, not on purpose.

and I'm sorry that you have this craving. I hope if you knew the people dying it would be a different story.
User avatar #162 to #159 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
I don't know if I would look away, If so, I don't think I would not look away twice. Have you ever watched a man die in front of you?
User avatar #164 to #162 - tonyromee (08/02/2012) [-]
yes.
User avatar #166 to #164 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
Oh come on seriously? I mean, heaven forbid you're telling the truth, and if you are I apologize in advance for asking, but how did you see that?
User avatar #170 to #166 - tonyromee (08/02/2012) [-]
I would rather not elaborate on that. I'll simply say it was very unpleasant. You skepticism is neither unwarranted nor unreasonable; this is the internet, and not statement I make is able to be proven. However, I am not lying. Take that however you like.
User avatar #171 to #170 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
No, I believe you now that I know it wasn't physically in front of you, and it was a video. . . Most people on FJ, and probably all people on /b/ have seen a video of someone die.
User avatar #173 to #171 - tonyromee (08/02/2012) [-]
I have seen someone die in real life. 3 someones, actually. my elaboration comment was in reference to the comment regarding willingly seeing death again. Would I want to see it in real life again? I can honestly not give you an answer there, because I do not know. Would I watch a show where contestants played for their lives? In a heartbeat. Most of the world would, given time.
User avatar #179 to #173 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
People would want to watch it, but how the **** would anyone be okay with that existing.
User avatar #252 to #179 - tonyromee (08/03/2012) [-]
Read up on public execution. People flocked in droves to see someone get hanged or beheaded. Public Stoning or Tar and feathering were commonplace at one time. People ate the **** up.
User avatar #176 to #173 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
How do you not know whether or not you want to see someone die in real life or not.

Its not a grey area, you either do or you don't.
User avatar #178 to #176 - tonyromee (08/02/2012) [-]
It is a gray area for me. I have no feelings toward it one way or another
User avatar #253 to #180 - tonyromee (08/03/2012) [-]
I can't even disagree with you
User avatar #168 to #166 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
And would you willingly see it again?
User avatar #174 to #168 - tonyromee (08/02/2012) [-]
The real life deaths? Probably not, but I can't say for sure. One of the three i knew personally, the other two I did not know. as for death videos, I have seen more than have been posted on FJ.
User avatar #177 to #174 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
I wasn't saying the death videos were ON FJ, I was just saying that FJ users have probably seen one.
User avatar #140 to #138 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
yeah but not the moment of an accidental unplanned death.

they never show someone dying on tv, maybe the gorey aftermath, or a "dramatic representation / recreation" but think back to just one time you ever someone dye, for real, on tv.

ain-gon-happen
User avatar #142 to #140 - tonyromee (08/02/2012) [-]
I've seen people "Dye" on tv all the time. as for death, no, not yet. It will happen in time.
User avatar #148 to #142 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
(Hey, you spelled die wrong, maybe it was on purpose somehow, also this means you admit: "to this day, based on what we know, TV has not shown real death." Furthermore, I seriously doubt the RIAA would allow this in the near future.)
User avatar #151 to #148 - tonyromee (08/02/2012) [-]
It probably will not happen in the next ten years, but I do believe that shows like the Running Man will eventually air. People love death, whether they admit it or not. There are individuals who do not like death, but as a whole, people demand it. They always have. Take a look at history, and the things people have done to each other and tell me death is not a human desire.

The RIAA does not have absolute power, nor would they be able to stop the people from airing what they want to see if the people demanded it. Especially since the RIAA only represents music, and only in america. I think you meant the MPAA, and they only have a say in motion pictures.

If you play video games, take a look at your library. Then, tell me how many of your games involve killing something. Then look at your movie collection, and the movies that are in theatres. Count how many of them show scenes involving death. **** , even Disney movies involve death. I want you to think of one single form of media that is not infatuated with the idea of murder, death, and violence.
User avatar #158 to #151 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
Also shows involving death already exist, I'm sure you know 1000 ways to die, and the darwin awards, and I bet there's more I don't know about, but none involving footage of real death. . . That alone is the point I'm trying to make.
User avatar #161 to #158 - tonyromee (08/02/2012) [-]
Then your point is made, and I already validated it. My point was, that is what is on the horizon for the future. People will demand it, this is my prediction, based on an extensive knowledge of human history based on 10 years of thorough study and observation, both from text/media and from real life experience, as well as a fairly through knowledge of human nature and psychology via years of study and observation.
User avatar #175 to #161 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
Looks like someone went to college. What's your major by the way? Psychology? Seriously tho, you are now stating that you're an expert. Do you pretend to have a masters for every internet argument topic?

NOW I'm patronizing you ¯_(ツ)_/¯
User avatar #153 to #151 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
yes death is in everything, it is a part of life, its inescapable, but I don't agree that people enjoy watching genuine death, unless there's something wrong with them.
User avatar #157 to #153 - tonyromee (08/02/2012) [-]
Murder and death are not quite the same thing, and I should not have mentioned them together. For that I apologize.

But saying people do not have a fascination with real death shows a lack of knowledge of the history of the human race.

Saddam Hussein Hanging video: 24,323 views.

"MAN EATS PEPPER AND DIES ON CAMERA" on youtube: 452, 892 views

"Franco Scoglio dies live" 5,842,453 views

You tell me what that means
User avatar #160 to #157 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
I feel like I already admitted death was popular, but I find it hard to believe that people are, "asking for it." let alone that rules will change and studios will provide it. If not for morality, then just for the fact that everyone's afraid of being sued.
User avatar #144 to #124 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
haha, okay so ignoring your ****** negative patronizing tone implying that you're a TV expert this might shed some light.

Source."

If you actually watch it, (do, its really really funny) and read the description it says "During a talent show in russia two very untalented men, epically fail their entrance and then the guy with the bow and arrow accidentally shoots the apple guy in the head! P.s the guy survived he did not die"

first of, this means it was a real arrow, and he did get shot in the head. Second, and more importantly: "he did not die." which is why Its allowed on youtube in the first place. I don't know about this being on tv, mainly because its Russian, and I'm not familiar with Russian TV, also it might be a blooper, or an out-take.
User avatar #149 to #144 - tonyromee (08/02/2012) [-]
Ignoring YOUR ****** patronizing tone implying you're an expert on research, I did read that, and I realize he did not die. This was not the purpose of my comment. The purpose of my comment was to imply that death sells; I elaborated later on.
User avatar #155 to #149 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
Agreed, death does sell, but only recreated, fake death is what has been sold since there was a video medium to sell.

I apologize if my tone sounds patronizing, I guess the laughing didn't help, I actually did laugh. That's why I put "haha" I am not an expert on research, nor was I trying to portray that image, you're comment just sounded really douchey.

Damn, a YouTube video description said it, IT MUST BE TRUE!!!
User avatar #184 to #181 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
well, whoever reviewed this video believed that, otherwise it wouldn't still be up.
#187 to #184 - samee (08/02/2012) [-]
Yeah cos YouTube takes down every video that lies in its video description.
User avatar #189 to #187 - camdonwin (08/02/2012) [-]
no. . . cause youtube takes down all videos where real death is shown. If whoever reviewed it thought they actually died It would be taken down.
#195 to #189 - samee (08/02/2012) [-]
Or maybe the guy wasn't really shot in the head and it's just parody video. MIND BLOWN.

Also, there are real deaths on YouTube. This vid has been up for over a year and has over 100,000 views:

Well, either the man who took the shot knows it's a trick, or he's been planning to kill that ****** from the start, because he doesn't even twitch in the video.
User avatar #15 to #13 - toethumb (08/02/2012) [-]
most likely he was to petrified to react
User avatar #16 to #15 - waffies (08/02/2012) [-]
Nah, he lets his arm down, settles the bow in his hand much more casually, props it on the floor and takes a much more at ease stance.

in what vid was that he take a step towards him and looks like he about to drop the bow as he walks to his aid with the others 			*****		 are you high
