Thanx; finally one who noticed the vague scent of irony!

And the others who replied; sorry if you guys were provoked, but upset people are often more honest and real than the average lurker.

So... now that I got your attention, I can address this topic in a more serious manner!

A suicidal person is mostly a person in a deranged state of mind. If caused by shock, malnutrition, poisoning, psychological instability, fear, or sorrow, you can in most cases see the reason, but the worst cases I hate the most, is always those who surprise me; especially when the person is healthy and have not seem to be troubled.

You can tell much about their reason from how they did it (or how they tried)
-Bridges seem to be typical for those who has lost something, and therefore also have lost hope. These people can often be talked out of it by giving them something. not necessary hope, but something real or with a purpose.
-Those who hang themselves are often persons who is angry at someone and do it as some kind of revenge. And in their head they often justify it with being a punishment for the person who finds him or her dangling.
-Shotguns and guns are often used by drunk or intoxicated persons, who in a weakened state of mind thought it was a clever idea to end it all...
-Pills are usually for those who want to be saved; they often call 911 themselves.
-Self cutting is for feeling guilt and for psychic disorders!

Most of those I knew of my own age that have managed to end their lives, did it either because they had a mental diagnose which they knew would worsen by time, and/or because they was convinced they could not live up to be that person which they thought they had to. And I have concluded that; more important than helping people is to let people help you; it gives them a purpose and a connection - that can be the small difference in whether to ask for help themselves.

If you know a troubled soul that might throw him or her down the downward spiral into oblivion; ask them to help you with... anything. Doesn't even have to be a physical thing like chopping wood or walking your dog, -just ask for them to help you decide on what to name your new kitten, or what they think of the new pub downtown, or something...

I always link to sources; if any - See no reason to emphasize it when I'm the source!

Neither do I see it as theory nor thesis; mere a monologue of notion...

Im Happy that you werent being serious about "let the bastards jump"
and your closing idea is a great one.
get them involved, in anything.
It could help delay or prevent the suicide itself.
nice.

Na, i do not think this thread brings back faith in mankind.

I have never wanted to jump of a bridge or commit suicide, but i doubt seriously people in that country care any more than in west about people killing themselves.

Humanity = fail

Just because you have never wanted to jump or commit suicide, doesn't mean that in the future you still wont.
I think it is ignorant to assume that anyone in one country wouldnt care about someone on the other side of the world..
obviously there are some HERE, that care.
so why wouldnt they.
to prove you wrong,
Chen Si would.
I guarantee it. If he was on the Golden Gate or somewhere else, i know he would help someone.
he's made it his life ambition.

Oh and i never said the thread brought back faith.
seeing someone do such a good deed for 144 lives he has saved, yes that does..
so i dont understand your opening statement.

I love stories that contridict the common belief humanity is naturaly evil. If that was the case we'd be dead by now. Good story, wish more people would do stuff like this, even more.

What really gets me is how all of my threads get trolled on, and end up dying due to said trolling.
