The new definition of push is "kick really hard in the back so you fall face first onto a barely-inflated device so that you break your nose on the concrete under it."

What does abu ackbar have to say about suicide? The probably cut his legs off so he can't get past the first floor any more.

Wow, that could have been much shorter. Possibly even a Gif.

Fine example of life imitating art.


Ich schleich mich heimlich auf die Brücke
Tret ihm von hinten in den Rücken
Erlöse ihn von dieser Schmach
und schrei ihm nach

DO YOU REALLY WANNA JUMP?
DO YOU WANNA?

Also, gotta love seeing a guy that's planning to jump to his death wait for a big ol' inflatable mat to be set up right under him before even thinking of making a move.

Generally, when I think of suicide I consider a higher place to jump from. Becuase surviving the fall as a cripple is probably not going to make things any better.

That was my thought, it wasn't high enough to guarantee to kill him, even a swan dive off head first still had the possibility of survival.

Also, I'm not one to normally browse the chans out there, but this image is pretty much my thoughts on suicide.

I thought of that too. But it turns out some people are just plain old crazy.

What makes sense to us doesn't make sense to them.

Yeah all that would really do is make someone who was depressed more depressed by berating them for how badly they are managing to deal with their depression.  It's this elegant self-reinforcing spiral of failure that's hard to explain to people that haven't experienced it.  Anonymous 4chaners lack evidence and empathy, but they make up for it with witty repartee.
