    I was living in Jersey at the time and yes that definitely shocked me.

    The poor conditions in the 9th Ward prior to Hurricane Katrina hitting; and the total devastation that occurred in her wake.

    Britney Spears mother is allegedly writing a book on parenting.

    Sexually...I can't think of much that would shock me anymore. Nonsexually, the World Trade Center collapse was probably the most shocking thing I've seen. Since that it would take a nuclear explosion or large asteroid strike that wipes out a city, or perhaps a large epidemic that kills millions of people.

    None of the things listed so far shock(ed) me - they upset and, in some cases, disturb or disgust me - but they don't shock me.

    The only thing that really shocks me is seeing death actually occuring - part of my job involves viewing and determining the relevance of video content and I ended up watching the Saddam Hussein execution to verify that the content was the full, uncensored version that was knocking about at the time. That shocked me, and disgusted, disturbed and saddened me. I have also watched footage of McVeigh's execution and Nick Berg's execution and felt the same. Added some substance to my existing abhorance of the death penalty.

    That was not shocking, nasty yes, shocking no.



    I was in disbelief on 9/11 and when I saw the towers collapsing.

    I was shocked when the Columbia Shuttle exploded and the Challenger accident occur.

    :eek: How can you say that!? Nevermind, I forgot you live in the midwest. For those of us who were right there, knew someome who perished, or had to deal with breathing the ashes of the dead for weeks after. It was a shock.


    The Challenger and 9/11 were a shock. The Columbia exploding just saddened me.

    9/11 still feels unreal, most of us in the UK who were in a position to spent the day glued to the tv, and while we felt a great deal of sympathy with the Americans who were involved in any way there was also a sense of unreality about it, it just seemed impossible that those two huge buildings would collapse in that way.

    Sexually nothing shocks me although there are some things I can't understand the attraction for.

    Random unprovoked violence shocks me, what kind of society is it that breeds people who think it's ok to stab or shoot someone because they pissed you off?

    I have to agree that it didn't shock me. I don't very much that does and I can't think of anything off the top of my head...
