    Destruction? I'm not sure; it's sort of primal. It's a satisfaction on the gut/pre-intellectual level. I don't think I'm explaining this well. Figures: I haven't tried to explain it to anyone but myself, for which task I need no words.
    As for misery- it just a warm cocoon. I may venture to translate this from Ina-esque one day.

    If you look at the past, death in war was considered to be honourary as a simple example. A very simple example would probably be norse militia of the old.
    That is the celebration of Honor in the face of death, ie. the ultimate of consequences. You would not be a successful militia if you sought death itself.

    Possibly, I don't see anything to be worth lamenting. Althou I don't hold life be it human or not in high regard.
    Then we simply have no common ground. I work from the assumption that life is worth living. If you feel this way, why do you continue to live? Genuinely curious what motivates you to do something you care so little for.

    How well can you understand a subject you can not translate into words? I am still genuinely curious if you would like to make an attempt.

    Pretty well. Though I did not and would not say I "cannot." It is difficult for sure. I may do so some day. Before now, I've never had a reason to attempt to write it out. I doubt I'm alone in this, though, so you could probably hit up old google.

    Yet I did not say that it's "Sought after" what I say is that "death" isn't always perceived as bad.

    By all means, where did I say that life isn't worth living? Not holding life in high regard does not mean being completely indifferent to it, it just means that in my views the lives of the individuals are easily "replaceable". Althou that viewpoint probably comes with the history of the region I live in.

    And also, why do I myself cling to life? Ambitions, I'm a very ambitious man, my ambitions hold enough drive and interest for me to live several lives. If I didn't have those, I probably would have offed myself long ago.

    As to enjoying destruction, it's probably a side effect of testosterone.

    So does anyone know why he did it exactly?

    How do people not know why? that is like the most impelling question for any suicide...

    I mean, he killed himself over a bodybuilding forum. What happened? Why? Did another person provoke it? Was he banned or something? I don't get why people aren't interested in the why...

    Was he the guy who posted pics of his girlfriend modeling for his car? I can see why he did it, if so.

    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Im pretty apathetic to this whole thing.

    People like that who cant even value their own life enough to even attempt suicide might as well just be rounded up and turned into fuel. Their nothing but a hindrance to the rest of society. At least in death they would have some purpose.
