SlothB77: Nick Nostril: SlothB77: Most overrated PJ song.

There are probably 125 pearl jam songs i prefer over Jeremy, yet all radio plays is Jeremy.

This.

I mean, would it kill radio to play Rearviewmirror or In Hiding or Present Tense or MFC or Footsteps or their cover of Crazy Mary or Nothingman or Last Exit or Off He Goes or Wash or Drifting or Brother or Light Years, perhaps their most underrated song, once in a while.


This is Not For You is the greatest song in their catalog.

Louisiana_Sitar_Club: OldManDownDRoad: orclover: Its really hard to fark up a suicide with a shot to the head unless you have no idea what you are doing or your heart really isn't in it.

Well, unless you are a Judas Priest fan:

I found his parents:

Holy fark:

Vance underwent more than 140 hours of surgery and lived in constant pain. Three years later, he slipped into a coma and died before the trial began, but not before he gave his version of what happened the day he and Belknap made their suicide pact.

At the time of his death, Vance left a 1-year-old daughter.

Did he reproduce after blowing off half his face?

Ecobuckeye: Since all you Pearl Jam people are here now, would someone please tell me what the fark does this mean?

Unsealed, on a porch a letter sat
Then you said, "I wanna leave it again"
Once I saw her on a beach of weathered sand
And on the sand I wanna leave her again

On a weekend I wanna wish it all away, yeah
And they called and I said that I'll go
And I said that I'll call out again
And the reason I ought ta leave her calm, I know
I said, "I don't know whether I'm the boxer or the bag"

Oh yeah, can you see them, out on the porch?
Yeah, but they don't wave
I see them 'round the front way, yeah
And I know, and I know I don't wanna stay

Make me cry

I see oh, I don't know why there's something else
I want to, wanna drum it all away
I said, "I don't, I don't know whether I was the boxer or the bag"

Oh yeah, can you see them, out the on porch?
Yeah, but they don't wave
I see them 'round the front way
And I know, and I know I don't want to stay at all
I don't want to stay
I don't want to stay
I don't want to stay
I don't, I don't want to stay

Wow. I know this is Fark and everything, but a kid just tried to kill himself. I thought most suicide threads leaned towards support of the individuals.

I strongly support the right of all individuals to kill themselves. And strongly recommend it for queerhaters everywhere.


/Hang in there, kid.

Seriously, did he try running away from home first? Suicide shouldn't have to be your first option.

According to Google Maps it's 11.5 miles from Fairmount Public School to the intersection of Interstate 29 and state route 11 (4th Ave. S in Fairmount). An able-bodied 14 year old can walk that in three hours. From there you can hitchhike north to Fargo, where there's an airport and Greyhound and Amtrak stations.

However, if finding help sounds more important than just getting away (which IMHO it should) Google also shows that Fargo also has a Village Family Service Center where trained counsellors address gay & lesbian issues (among many others) and talk to teenagers about whatever problems they have, gay-related or not. (I have no idea whether they'd talk to a 14 year old walking in off the street, but I just emailed them to ask about it.) And there might be better options in Fargo than the first thing I could find Googling for +gay +counselling +Fargo.

Such things are worth trying before deciding to shoot yourself in the head. If only there was a way for Farkers to make troubled teenagers in their area aware of these resources.

Anyway.

TFA says he was "coherent" afterward. I just hope he didn't fark himself up too badly. And that somebody in the hospital in Fargo will talk to him and try to help.

No evidence of that. Interesting though how you immediately assumed.


You're right, there isn't good evidence specifically for that. There are actually quite a few reasons a 14 year old might shoot himself, many of which reflect badly on his immediate society.

orclover: Its really hard to fark up a suicide with a shot to the head unless you have no idea what you are doing or your heart really isn't in it.

Either way its one hell of a show and tell.


Not really... my sis works in the ER and tells me how scary often they get failed gunshot suicides. Some put the gun to their temple, and just blow out their frontal cortex, which doesn't kill them and leaves them brain damaged. Others put the gun in their mouth and shoot up, blowing their face off but not even hitting the brain.

She says a lot of docs/nurses really want to tell the people how to do it right, because they know there is a better than even odds they'll be back in a month after another failed attempt.

The student wasn't in any kind of trouble that the principal was aware of.


DRTFT, but I'm going to go out on a limb here and figure that the apology was because he, you know, was about to shoot himself in the head in front of a bunch of 14 year olds.

Well there were plenty of other reasons to hate on Pearl Jam than just that.

You should have weighed the legal ramifications of just pulling out a plastic gun one day in the middle of class. This was pre-9/11 so you may have been expelled and/or sent to juvie but there would be no Gitmo. You would have shut everyone the fark up and probably gottten some mad pussy at the end of it.

Actually, of people who survive a suicide attempt, only about 10 to 15 percent die by a later suicide attempt.

This article says it's 10 percent.

Also, I was reading an article about the Golden Gate Bridge suicide barrier a while back, and it said that of the people who jumped off the bridge and survived, many of them regretted the suicide attempt before they hit water. Obviously we can only speculate how many of the ones who died may have regretted it after it was too late. Can't remember offhand, but I'm sure you can find it yourself if you care.

I also have a friend who attempted suicide in high school and later said she was very glad the attempt failed. So, you'll understand if I don't agree with your sister, no matter how good her intentions are.
