    I have seen isis burn children alive, gunman shoot down innocent civilians and other awful shit. In life previous to the internet this would probably severely mess people's emotions up. Now I cannot deny some of these have deeply disturbed me and shocked me wondering how somebody could do this to another person. What do you guys think, and what fucked up shit have you seen in the internet.

    I would say it has desensitized the users who view content like that because before I actively viewed it, I was disgusted by it. As for myself, I can watch anything now - gore threads, rekt threads, etc. None of it bothers me at all

    I was going to watch the liveleak footage of the gunman shooting the reporter this morning, but I just couldn't.

    Do you think this internet desensitization could effect your reaction to real life horrible things you could see?

    For sure. When I spend hours online seeing all types of horrendous things happening around the world with shootings, ISIS, etc... it desensitizes me and drains me of emotions. So in real life it's harder to emotionally react to situations which seem boring/mundane compared to the fast-paced thrills of the InterWebz.

    I could watch ISIS burn people alive on the internet and bear it, if i saw it in person definitely would scar me.

    I mean animals/people burning alive, people killing themselves, beheading, kids getting crushed by cars. None of it bothers me. So, ye; it'll definitely have an impact on if i saw that irl, I doubt id feel any emotion at all seeing it irl
