Did they expect him to talk?

It might not really matter if people know after you're dead.

Is jumping off a cliff really a good idea though?

I've jumped off of 60 foot cliffs into water (with no intention of killing myself) and the thing is you have time to think about it on the way down and 60 feet isn't enough to be sure you would really die if that was your intent even if you were landing on hard pavement.

Wouldn't it suck to rethink your decision about halfway down?  Not much time to reconsider I guess and there would be nothing you could do about it by that point anyway.

Drugs or guns seems like a better way to go.  Or best yet combine all three. That could be tricky though.  What if you just passed out from the drugs before you could jump or fire your gun?  That wouldn't be good and would probably make you feel like an even bigger failure.

At that point you just start flapping your arms furiously.  Sure, it's probably not going to help, but you've got nothing to lose at that point.

What really happens is you shiat your pants and then land on the huge pile of shiat which cushions your fall and you live. Smelly but alive. I saw it a few weeks ago in XKCD's "What If?"

I would think throwing himself off the first cliff would have done the trick.

Ferguson has attributed the inspiration for the novel's title to a conversation with a Jesuit priest about whether all those who commit suicide go to hell. According to Ferguson, the priest said that while suicide was a mortal sin, if someone were to jump from a bridge and genuinely repented of their action before they hit the river they would be forgiven. Ferguson interpreted this as there always being one last chance of redemption, which is the core of the adventures in the novel.

/great book

Was this near some house we're not supposed to photograph?

Would this count as an example of the Streisand Effect?

I seem to remember hearing a story of people who tried to commit suicide by jumping and lived, and they all said that as soon as they let go they wished they hadn't.

Farking stupid to kill yourself over money.
Let them twist in the wind, no blood from a stone, etc.

Just go real limp because maybe you'll look like a dummy and people will try to catch you because, hey, free dummy.

Evil Mackerel: If he just read the whole book he would have known about the three foreign investors.

I write this in the hope that it will someday be read by human eyes. I can only surmise at this point, but apparently our exploratory shuttle was contaminated by an alien life form which infected and killed all personnel except myself. I awakened to find myself here in the Royale Hotel, precisely as described in the novel I found in my room. And for the last thirty eight years I have survived here. I have come to understand that the alien contaminators created this place for me out of some sense of guilt, presuming that the novel we had on board the shuttle about the Hotel Royale was in fact a guide to our preferred lifestyle and social habits. Obviously, they thought this was the world from which I came. I hold no malice toward my benefactors. They could not possibly know the hell they have put me through. For it was such a badly written book, filled with endless cliché and shallow characters. I shall welcome death when it comes.
- Col. Stephen Richey, commander, exploratory shuttle Charybdis

I've watched it more times I don't know either. Even after looking at the screenshot from the article, I STILL don't know.
