I thought the rule was, "Never talk to police."

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

"YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE LOTS, AND LOTS, AND LOTS OF SEX! Seriously, do you want to miss out on that?!"


"No, I'm not. That's the reason I am killing myself. I've been deeply depressed about an industrial accident that caused my penis to be cut off."

"Really? Crap. Make sure there aren't any boats or anything below you when you jump."

We have a small bridge here in Toronto -- the Bloor/Danforth Viaduct -- which used to be a popular suicide bridge. Then, a few years ago, they put up a Suicide Barrier, and it's not any more.

I've often thought it would be funny to go to that bridge, sit on the sidewalk, and shoot myself in the head while wearing a sign that says, "F**k you and your suicide barrier."

I think the police should push most people off bridges.

In prison on an attempted suicide sentence?

Not everyone considers that to be a good thing.


I don't think we actually prosecute for that. It's one of those things that exist in theory but not in real life. Like sex for a Farker.

HaveBeerWillTravel: But remember, all cops are dicks.


Well, if you consider all of the problems caused by overcrowding, then saving this guy made life worse for the rest of us. So yes, that is kind of a dick move.

Wrong. He's married. He probably hasn't had sex in years.
