LOL. I actually laughed at that. The guy in my office didn't notice though, so I don't look crazy.

agrees. this made me almost tear up... what made em snap like this? suicide is always a touchy subject. but damn, this guy chose to go by mauling? what mental anguish was he trying to extinguish by going out in what had to be one of the most painful ways possible...

Singapore Zoo has closed the white tiger exhibit as a precautionary measure.

Huh?

Don't worry, your not bi-polar or you'd understand. When your in a hole, the most violent forms of self torture are always the best way out. Pain = Life to bipolar people.

The good news is the tigers, who were in no way at fault, will probably survive. If this happened in the U.S. they would be shot.

Working from memory here, so cut me some slack
/ahem/

There was a magician named Roy
rumored to be Sigfried's boytoy.
He sadly was caught
by a bad feline swat.
Now his brain has the texture of poi.

See, now the headline still made me chuckle, but it would have been much better without the "He was delicious" part. Give the reader some credit, here.

FTA: Nordin Bin Montong was attacked by the white Bengal tigers after crossing a moat surrounding their enclosure. He was reportedly acting erratically.

"So, uh, Mrs...Bin Mon-tongue...?"
"It is pronounced 'Bin Ee-ten'"

Terrible, nasty way to go out.

Was that an MST3K reference to "The Final Sacrifice"?

You know my father?
Know him? He was delicious!

Thanks subby, I did genuinely LOL for about a minute there. Nice work.

Meh. Ignore S10. People are different, and have different reactions to the same disorder. Most people I know IRL don't really know me, they know the me I've gotten good at pretending to be (been practicing since about age 8), while in private I'm severely crippled by depression. I'm not supposed to function well, but sometimes I do -- it doesn't mean I'm not what I am. As for the zoo worker, I agree, based on the evidence we have, he was looking for death. I don't understand the choice myself, but perhaps he couldn't do something to himself (well, aside from walking into a tiger exhibit), having something else do it may have been the only way he could actually end it.
