then don't take my word for it, look it up for yourself. Unless of course you just like being a dick and refuse to participate for the sake of being a dick. I mean you could have at least had the opposite opinion, then there could a be a debate or agreement to disagree..
I expect people who make claims to at least put some effort into trying to support those claims. It's not my job to fact check your opinions for you. I could have posted a conflicting opinion, but then I'd have had to verify both your information and mine. Then, you'd come back with more unsubstantiated information and I'd have to do it again. I'd end up doing twice the work to account for your intellectual laziness.
boy you must be a blast at parties!
And that's really the point, isn't it? Expecting others to fact check the things you say frees you up to spout off anything that happens to come to mind without the worry that it isn't true. When people say "look it up for yourself", it's usually because they can't support their own claims. It's a diversionary tactic.
If you were at a party, and you said what you said in your question, and someone asked "do they, though?"... would your response be to tell them to go look it up and to quit being a dick? Or would you have tried to convince them that the media doesn't, in fact, report on suicides? Which of those two responses do you think is more pro-social?
don't try so hard, you're going to hurt yourself.
I'll take that as a no
it's okay, you can take it however you want
