doglover: I stand corrected, quite a few jumps abroad.They must know something we soon will.
Peter von Nostrand: looks like a pretty random list to me
God-is-a-Taco: Bankers are untouchables, subby. What are you suggesting?Maybe if we hope strong enough every banker in the world will drop dead and we can rebuild our society into one of happiness and joy.
SilentStrider: I hope this is just a statistical anomaly and not the start of a bad trend.

The Cluster Effect
God-is-a-Taco: buzzgoat:There may be a growing threat that these high level types do know of, but I doubt it.What possible situation could come about where bankers would be threatened? They have the modern Mandate of Heaven
Peter von Nostrand: doglover: I stand corrected, quite a few jumps abroad.They must know something we soon will.Eh, looks like a pretty random list to me
buzzgoat: But, this is all speculation. Just thinking through my fingers as it were.
Public Savant: buzzgoat: But, this is all speculation. Just thinking through my fingers as it were.Leave the thinking to your head.Nobody can figure out anything anymore due to ever increasing complexity.Assuming that the lemmings were in the know is tin-foil worthy.More likely, the suiciders are just realizing that they've done shiatty things and can't cope anymore.Just like how old people can sometimes survive the winter, but come spring they croak.It's often when things start to look a little better, that we realize what a toll a crisis has had on us.Like getting sick on the same day your vacation starts.
Bizarro: Did anyone say aliens yet? Because it's totally aliens.
Revmachine21: Worked in both domestic and international finance here and abroad. I spent 2007-2011 really trying not to jump off a bridge next to my apartment. Had a hard time watching so many people laid off, the markets so farked up because of greedy bastards, clients and innocent people ruined. I know that my job was just "normal" stressful for the industry. Many of the guys listed in by Farker Triumph were in the bleeding edge of priority juggling. I can't tell you the number of times I was on the receiving end of of bullshiat from those types. The shiat flows downward.I've spent the last 2-3 years piecing my head together and I'm only finally starting to feel somewhat human. I try to sleep and many days, the moment I drift off, I wake up feeling like I'm having a heart attack. I'm not. Permanently lost the ability to digest certain foods, but who really needs to eat brussels sprouts?

v15: Jews pick these high stress jobs and when markets collapse they do crazy things like build concentration camps and gas themselves.
Fart_Machine: So by "family tragedy" are we talking murder/suicide or someone left the oven on.
