whizbangthedirtfarmer: Nidiot: dickfreckle: Aside from being horrified I remember wondering why someone would choose jumping as a method. This is America, and guns are easily available legally or not.My answer to this is, if you have ever seen just one person who has survived an attempted suicide by gunshot, and surviving is something that happens far too often, you would never consider it as a viable option. Living despite having your face blown off or half your head blown away would be one of my worst nightmares. It's mind boggling how hard it can be to successfully kill yourself. Bridges have a pretty good success rate.Yep, there's a guy a few towns over who was a pretty prominent businessman/politician. He learned his wife had an affair with pretty much half of the male population in the town, so he shot himself in the head. Problem was that he angled the barrel of the gun just enough that he survived, but with hideous scars, and several pieces of his brain missing. He has lived in a semi-conscious state for the past ten or fifteen years in a nursing home.\don't know what wife is doing
