Suicide is such a self-indulgent thing.

It's something you really can't justify. COJ was obviously a dramatizer, which would explain the whole "last words to be read" thing. Suicide is an eternal solution to temporary things that seem permanent.

This may sound a little too extistentialist/psychological, but as much as it is something that is impossible justify, it is just as impossible to judge. No suicide note can explain to us what was truly on the victim's mind at the time. Though there is no widely reighteous form of suicide (this includes dying to save lives or for preservation of a country's equally self-reighteous dream), nobody also has no right to say, "What a waste of humanity." because that is a response based on judgement, and possibly grief (which is also a single-perception emotion for anybody who experiences it)

I am guilty of thinking about suicide(though I believe everybody has thought about it some time or another), and also guilty about talking somebody out of it as well. Though I sounded like I was speaking factually above, I'm as equally self-reighteous.

I'm sure there are people out there who were happy to die. I don't disapprove euthanasia(sp?). The fear of death is scary; perhaps controlling our own fate may be relieving to some. But I really can't judge.

***HUMOR IN BAD TASTE WARNING***

It's really scary to know that as you are reading this, I'm probably already sitting around, watching TV. Maybe drinking a cup of coffee.....-words from Jordan Hyman, 1989-20...well, time is a human concept anyway.


There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing 'cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!

I agree. It's perfectly natural to think about ending your life, and taking down everybody that's ever spoken ill of you at the same time in one glorious massacre.

I'm sure that everyone has thought of suicide at one time or another.

I'm just wondering if he went through with it, or if he just hast come back here, or if he chose a different SN?

Oh how I'd love to take down a few people right about now.

I think this was his big MI forum finish. He didn't want to, or wasn't able to, come by here anymore and rather than be forgotten, he decided that he'd make people think he'd killed himself and make people feel sorry for him. Too bad that someone like me had to come along and point out the obvious, a guy living on the streets managed to write a last message... on an internet forum.

The fact that we're still talking about it annoys me, he was an attention whore and this is just what he wanted, but at the expense of people thinking he'd killed himself, and I for one don't want to be thinking of things like that when I come here.

Saying that, this thread will now go the way of it's origin's.
