Does anyone else take pleasure from other peoples misfortune, just read a thread about someones bluray drive failing on their PS3 and it actually cheered me up !

I dont think it's normal behaviour.

But why are you happy that someone's blu-ray drive failed? That's a bit odd!

I really don´t understand why any normal person would take pleasure from another´s misfortune.

shame on you

If someone takes "pleasure" in others misfortune then I'd say that they have had some bad experiences themselves that has had a lasting psychological effect.

I never take pleasure in anothers misfortune, if I can help them I would try, however where there is opportunity then thats another case for consideration.

To take pleasure though, no.
