I don't have any energy to be nice, or thoughtful, any more. That seems to leave me with sex.
Fun vicarious sex: gossiping about tips and tricks with a good friend of mine who is losing their virginity in slow motion with their similarly virgin partner.
Not so fun vicarious sex: getting crushed on/hit on for cybersex by various people who have heard me through vent while raiding, and have almost nothing to go on vis a vis who I am and what I'm actually like. More importantly, whom I know very little about.
On the bright side, I have a lot of tanks and healers on my Friend List.
I don't think that reverance or respect for the dead needs the dead to be hidden from sight completely. It is the attitude that you bring, as a witness to a dead body, that matters, not the display and witnessing of a dead body, per se.
