That is what we call an irrational fear. We know what causes lightning, as well as why it occurs. It's a natural phenomenon. It also sort of counters your whole "just need faith" argument that a lot of christians use. If you had faith in your god, then you'd not fear testing such a thing, because it would be a really bad way to demonstrate one's existence, killing off the believer and not the unbeliever for the same exact thing, would it not?
Either way, you wind up with a massive contradiction in your beliefs.

Hollywood A-listers called hypocrites on issue of gun violence in ‘Demand a Plan’ response video
http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2013/01/...
Several big-name Hollywood stars appear in a new anti-gun public service YouTube video calling for Americans to demand that their elected officials come up with a strategy to curb gun violence.
In the video, A-listers like Cameron Diaz, Paul Rudd, and Chris Rock read the names of the sites of the most horrific gun massacres before calling on viewers to “demand a plan” to stop mass shootings.
But now a new video called “Demand a Plan – Demand Celebrities Go F*** Themselves” has been created that highlights the gun violence many of these same stars have taken part in in their movies and television shows.
They have made it rich on these violent movies.

Is your other poem a riddle, too? I'll have a look at that tomorrow, I want to get this one first.
It's about your phone number.

No, not really. It's not about numbers.

The other poem is not very good.

I like riddles. I've never tried making a riddle as a poem. I might try that soon.

Narcissistic personality disorder

"narcissistic personality disorder believe that they're superior to others and have little regard for other people's feelings."

Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration. Those with narcissistic personality disorder believe that they're superior to others and have little regard for other people's feelings. But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem, vulnerable to the slightest criticism.
Narcissistic personality disorder is one of several types of personality disorders. Personality disorders are conditions in which people have traits that cause them to feel and behave in socially distressing ways, limiting their ability to function in relationships and in other areas of their life, such as work or school.
Narcissistic personality disorder treatment is centered around psychotherapy

Apparently you didn't look very carefully at the chart you provided the link to.

For the chart that lists "Percent of deaths in age groups", death by firearms was the 3rd highest percentage for those in the 5-14 year group, and the 2nd highest percentage for those in both the 15-24 and 25-34. It's *over 20%* in the 15-24 group, and passed only by motor vehicle accidents.

If you don't believe me, take another look.

Say it's not true, Aura.

On second though, everything happens in California, and usually first.

For each and every person,
an angel is assigned,
to watch, to warn, to wave a wand,
or to help you change your mind.

So thinking of a person,
and what they represent,
appears to me, quite stupidly,
time and resources poorly spent.
