I don't think any of them actually jumped from anything, did they?

I hope this is just a statistical anomaly and not the start of a bad trend.

I stand corrected, quite a few jumps abroad.

They must know something we soon will.

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.

Peter von Nostrand: looks like a pretty random list to me


There's nothing super consistent, but there are some interesting commonalities here and there. Maybe the most chilling one, though, is clearly unrelated to the others. That's the nail gun guy. He shoots himself 7 times in the chest and then finally puts one in his head and the cops immediately ruled it a suicide. If true, that is one seriously messed up state of mind.

This sounds like a Book come to life. I strongly suspect that there are back stories with all these people that lead to long forgotten closeted skeletons. But to get to a "high level" banking position you generally have to have an "I'm the BEST" type attitude, and that type of person is rarely going to have suicidal tendencies.

That's my opinion, and I am very possibly wrong. However, as a life time sufferer of depression I've studied the subject some, out of self-interest.

There may be a growing threat that these high level types do know of, but I doubt it.

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?

It's just some mild statistical clustering.

That said, in all frankness if it was a trend I don't think "bad" is necessarily the right word.  These don't appear to be the basic personal-finance/property-management bankers that provide a valuable service to the community, these are the speculative finance/overleverage assholes that have crashed the world economy and ruined everything for millions of innocent people on multiple occasions and then bailed on their golden parachutes.

A whole lot of "and nothing of value was lost" going on there.

Not sure if serious.jpg

Think about it, we KNOW all of the worlds economies are intertwined beyond anything ever in the past, one colapse could lead to total world crisis. It sounds like a scare tactic or something from an apocoliptic thriller, however, if the EU colapsed, all trade would cease, even a 3 day blip in the economy could have repercussions that were life changing. These people are working with our lives in their hands everyday. As http://www.fark.com/users/Revmachine21" target="_blank">Revmachine21  said, thestress daily is enough to cause a person (that I assume) would have no reason to contemplate suicide to think of it as a way out. If you KNEW for certain that you had done something that would haunt you for the rest of your days, many people would choose to go out on "their terms" rather than try to live through what ever they created.

This "Mandate of Heaven" I've never heard of. And studies have shown outright that the more educated you are the more likely you are to be an atheist, and not beleive in heaven. But they would be able to see Hell on Earth.

But, this is all speculation. Just thinking through my fingers as it were.

A nail gun? Jumping from the 6TH floor?

Did they have shares in a company that profits off the severely maimed?

If I was going to kill off all the bankers who refused to accept the control of the Illuminati, I'd have my reptilian assassins make it look like a random list of people whose only connection was at one time holding a position in a financial company dying of both natural causes and unrelated suicides and misadventures in many different nations over a long period of time. It's just good sense, right? Right? Anyone? Beuler?

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.

I think we are the lemmings, the politicians, bankers and people that are in the "know" are building the cliff.

(WOW, that does sound crazy)

I just like to think, and I hope you're right. I like living on this planet most days.
I also try to plan for the worst and hope for the best. No tin-foil required, it is handy to keep the potatoes from getting burned in the coals though...

Subby, if history is any indicator, and I think it is, then there is no one event, no "storm," that will end one system, one group, one nation state. This is not Middle Earth, but Earth. I know people would rather enjoy clear-cut enemies and evil targets, but that is not our reality. We do not suffer from social events that behave as weather events. We never have. Rome's end, civil rights, the Arab Spring are not measured in time, those convenient hours, but in endurance.

If there is an assassin roaming the world and killing bank executives, and this is the advent of a global revolution, your "storm," it likely started years ago and our children will not see it through. I know your desire, though, we want to see it all, complete, in one fell swoop.

What are the statistics for suicides for guys like this?  If these deaths represent a sudden upswing, maybe it bears watching.  I dunno, mostly I guess I just think some kind of conspiracy would be exciting.  Not that I want people to die, but if they're going to anyway it might as well be entertaining.

In Dutch media it usually means the former.

And regardless of what scumbags these bankers may or may not be, if a parent killing their spouse and children and themselves makes you feel better, there's something quite wrong with you.
