    Hi all.

    I saw on the news a few hours ago that was a suspected terrorist bombing of a night club in Bali. There are at least 180 missing, and possibly dead. :0 . I also was under the impression that was where Fatboy was living (tell me I'm wrong!) . I'm just wondering if anyone has heard anything from him, or if anyone knows that he is OK?

    Here are the articles I was looking at:

    Think positive thoughts! (that's more for reassuring myself then a command obviously..)

    Hi Trashy

    Thanks for thinking of me, and to the other people that have PM’d me also.
    The place that was bombed is my regular pub and it is only because my mother in law is visiting that I wasn’t there myself last night! If not I would almost certainly have been so.
    The bar people, staff, bouncers and all the other people I say “Hi” to are gone. The place is a crater, black and smoking. Buildings for about 3km have lost their windows, it was massive.
    Two clubs side by side are just not there any more. I have been to both a million times and I was at Paddy's on Thursday night.

    I can’t tell you what this has done to this beautiful Island that I live on. It is the closest I can come to appreciating what you all went through with the World Trade Centre last year.
    I went to the local hospital where I donated blood. I am B-, as about 99% of Asians are + rhesus there is a shortage of - blood. The number of dead from last night’s blast is now at 192, mostly Australians. There are too many bodies at the hospital so they are wrapped in plastic on the floor, all blackened and twisted.

    I have seen some awful awful awful things.
    Things that look like people but are piled high in heaps, legs, arms, heads in strange, unnatural poses that shouldn’t be. There was a pile of about 30 or 40 bodies just stacked in the debris amongst wood and metal. All like things to be thrown away, not like people any more. They were all dressed up and having a good time on holidays. It has really blown me away.
    It all looks so wrong and strange if you can appreciate what I mean?

    The only thing I have heard about the bomber was that it was a suicide car bomb.
    There was another smaller one about 50m around the corner from the US consul. I went there and there was a big chunk out of the side of a tree but no other damage. No one hurt.

    Thanks again for your thoughts guys.

    Troy.

    WTF, Bali of all places. These lousy pieces of crap (putting it mildly) just want to kill innocent people. It makes me sick. My thoughts are with you fatboy.
    There's a tunnel at the end of the light...

    Fatboy, we are glad you are well and were not involved in that tragedy. Our sympathy goes to you and the good people of Bali who do not deserve such horror. Hopefully one day soon there will be peace in our world so we can all live on this planet without fear in our hearts.
    The opinions expressed here are not necessarily those of the management. And the management will be happy to hear that!

    Troy,
    I am happy you and your family were physically unharmed and I hope the mental harm goes away. I just cannot comprehend the mentality that can do something like this - it accomplishs nothing.

    Does anyone else get the feeling that the global climatic changes are adversely effecting the mental state of humans, similar to the effect the full moon will have on people.

    No Cheers

    It's just the way humans are. They lose themselves in their own emotions, forgetting what's important, and what's right, potenialy leading to events of the likes we have recently seen. I'm glad you are all right fatboy.
