    What a lame attempt at trying to be funny at the Taiwanese expense. GTFO.

    Plane could be compared to Jerry on a basketball court.

    Tragedies happen every day, need to pull your head out of your ass and not pretend the world stops for this one cuz it's got a hollywood movie type ending. It's fake weepers like you who act high and mighty online but give nothing to victims who are the biggest frauds out there. RIP to all victims, and may G*d have mercy on the souls of those who use this situation to feel better about themselves i.e.,dmanasela. I choose to remain light hearted because I have dealt with tragedies of my own and have been personally involved in helping victims as well. Only sheltered folk don't get that.

    Step away from the keyboard. The plane crash was less than 24 hours ago and you feel it appropriate to make a Lin joke? Come on bro. Would you do that in person?

    So there is a time period from making distasteful jokes? You're highlighting his point.

    I applaud you for trying to cover your tracks but you're digging yourself in a deeper hole by trying to rectify your original post. This is not about you being light hearted but having a deeper sympathy for victims in unfortunate accidents. I have family in Taipei and this news strikes me deeply. Everyone deals with tragedies so learn to think before you speak. Good luck.

    You've been pushing your luck, and it is hilarious how you are trying to justify it. A tragedy just happened and your first post is a "Lin" joke? Are you socially r****ded?

    I'd be surprised if you weren't banned in 48 hrs.

    I don't often have bad dreams, but one of my recurring ones is being trapped on the highway as a plane falls out of the sky.

    I can't imagine how the people on the plane must have felt.

    Absolutely terrible news :(

    The only silver lining here is this could have been a lot worse. 15 people (or whatever the official survivor count ends up tallying) are alive today due to the fact that the plane landed in a river instead of hitting the ground. It would have exploded otherwise.

    I've seen a lot of questionable posts here over the years and no one is banned.

    If it were a United Airlines flight that went down, then yes you could bet your ass people would refrain from stupid jokes for awhile.

    Does Lin dominate your dreams and thoughts?

    That's not his point.

    He was saying that there is never a time for distasteful jokes.
