If you believe some of the articles out there... MD2 made him commit suicide... or at least the reasons that made him consider doing it.

It's hard to say any of these Fark headlines making light of Williams' death is in bad taste....because he would likely approve of them.

Monday night, I started to cry a little (don't judge me; he looks like my dad, and even acts like I imagine my dad would if he did a bunch of coke), but then I thought: "That's no way to remember Robin Williams!"

So I watched his 1986 special instead.

// also, the short bit about Japanese people doing coke with chopsticks (it's like a 5-second throwaway, and it kills)

dletter: If you believe some of the articles out there... MD2 made him commit suicide... or at least the reasons that made him consider doing it.


Nothing  caused him to kill himself except for the fact that he had shiatty brain chemistry. The remarkable thing is that he lasted for nearly six decades in spite of having to cope with lifelong depression and in spite of the fact that he frequently had to deal with his addictions as well.

The fact that his career and financial situation was lending itself to stress certainly didn't help but, when it comes to suicide, those are just proximate causes. It's natural for people to seek out explanations after the fact, and those explanations tend to focus on proximate issues, but the fundamental issue is that he had a mental health condition which, ultimately, killed him.

Depression isn't a death sentence.  Bipolar Disorder isn't a death sentence.

Suicide is not an option on the table.  Quit making excuses for those who take the most selfish road possible.

I didn't say that it was. I also wouldn't say that cancer is a death sentence. Both can kill you, however.

Eat a dick. Seriously, go find a hobo and start sucking.

I'm willing to have a conversation, but if you can't dredge up the bare minimum of human empathy to acknowledge that some people just don't have the mental fortitude to cope with depression, then fark you. And because you have the gall to call that "the most selfish road possible", let's go ahead and make your farking a DP.

Depends on the situation. If you are in good health like he was, then yes it is a little selfish to cause so much pain to your loved ones by giving in to the depression. On the other hand, if you are dying a painful death by cancer and want to spare your loved ones seeing you suffering in pain, then it can be unselfish.   But yeah, normally I'd agree you are inflicting a lot of pain on people unnecessarily.

Here's an analogy that is sometimes offered up to people trying to understand suicide. To the sufferer, the depression is like being trapped in a burning building. If he stays inside the building, he'll burn to death, so he chooses to throw himself out the window instead. It's selfish in that, yes, he is focused on himself and attempting to end his own enormous suffering. But it's not selfish in the sense that the individual is seeking to profit at the expense of others, which is how many people tend to lob about the concept of selfishness as an abhorrent trait.

I know.  I always find it so distressing when people don't stay alive to keep me happy.  How inconsiderate! Don't they understand the pain they've caused?  They just need to suffer through whatever it is they're dealing with and worry about my pain.

Why cancel it? They're still pumping out Fast and Furious movies without Paul Walker (hell they released the last one with his face digitized onto a body double and had his brother dub his voice). They can do the same with Ms. Doubtfire too.

i would be surprised if they did this anytime within the next 10 years. Unless they somehow put someone in that role as a tribute to Robin Williams, Nathan Lane maybe.

I just hope he didn't read the comments accompanying the photos of him dressed as Mrs Doubtfire on the red carpet.

I was happy that the online eulogy was as kind as it was because those other remarks were just brutal. The world had turned on him.

There are different thoughts on the matter, but for me the criteria for suicide being allowed is that the person is not only suffering, but also has a mortal condition that even with treatment will soon lead to their death, like Alzheimer's or inoperable cancer. Basically, for that person death is relatively imminent, with no hope of recovery. For mental illness, you don't have that imminent, inevitable death, and there is the hope that a combination of drugs and therapy could relieve the suffering.

Simply put, I feel that suicide should be reserved as an option for when there simply is no longer any hope of continuing to live, and making the person live longer will just be torture.

Congratulations, you found a news article citing a mental health group.

Do you understand therapeutic methods at a personal level?  Have you been exposed to them personally, in the shoes of someone struggling with mental illness for 20+ years?  Have you had to choose life or death for yourself?

My understanding and my stance is not formed from a layman's perspective.

That was extremely poor wording by Sarah Coker, especially considering the life and death implications of such comments.  She pulled the punch.  She is attempting to state that there is a difference in perception, which is what she follows up her comments with, rather than an encompassing statement about the act itself.  However, as a number of people have done, it's mainstreaming the distorted and irrational vision, giving credence to it as an option on the table.

Part of Depression treatment is consistent support by professionals.  I do not mean that as 'You need to consistently seek out professional support', it's part of the protocol for Depression treatment - sending a consistent message of support.  For that one day, week, month, year, or for years you may be unable to pierce the veil, but the consistency of the message instills its meaning so when those stars do momentarily align, an improvement is made.

Supplying justifications and excuses for individuals struggling with Depression is not maintaining that consistency.

At the same time, I'm sure there are probably cheating husbands out there that feel like they are removing the burden of having sex with them from a frigid wife, but the act of cheating is still selfish because it leaves their spouse devastated. I'm not sure if you can judge if an act is selfish or not just based purely on the intention of why someone is doing something. Just because you do the wrong thing for right reasons in your own mind doesn't make the consequences of your actions any less hurtful.
