Why do we, human society, enjoy violent forms of entertainment? We all have different limits, and I consider my own tolerance level to be quite low, but even so I have always enjoyed classic style murder mystery novels and TV shows.
As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I don’t watch a lot of films, so when I do go to look for a DVD to rent I’m always amazed at the high proportion of films where the main focus of the entertainment is violence.
I am aware that some of my friends ride bikes. I am aware that in many lovely cities such as Cambridge and Amsterdam, many people ride bikes. Some people ride bikes for legitimate reasons, although if you are not a courier or a postie, please explain. But are you a person who happens to ride a bike sometimes, or are you one of those damn cyclists?
