    Is that what you would have shouted to that poor teenager in England? It's pathetic that people feel compelled to egg a young person on simply because they think it's funny or annoying. Get over yourselves, indeed.

    If they're desperate enough, I think they'll simply want.it.to.END. They won't look for attention.

    Of course, that's my own opinion...
    So what's the stage before claiming life?
    Is there a specific direction that people must deal with it?

    Yeah...they should just take a pill or something.

    And then the value of this kind of act..yeah, I think low of it. I think most truly desperate people who'd really, really had no hope of life wouldn't do it publicly, or simply don't care where. And they deserve nothing but sympathy and grief. This kind of people seems to look for the best place for people to see... and to me, it screams "LOOK AT ME I AM SUFFERING HEAR MY WHININGS BITCHES"
    So only people who no longer have any use for it, deserve sympathy?

    We've been committing suicide for thousands of years, it's kind of like all of the wars we read about in our history books. Ceasar got stabbed by all of his senate members, and his best friend. If that were to happen now, it would make international attention.

    Back then it was just another way to keep on keepin' on. How ironic that we shun all of the things that come naturally to us. We've split ourselves apart from our history like disowning a child.

    Why would a person in a bad situation commit suicide on the other hand? Maybe they see that being dead wouldn't be so bad. Maybe it's great. Nobody I know can tell me that being dead is the worst thing in the world. We just dont know what it is.

    Death, killing, and suicide are natural parts of being in the animal kingdom.
    Suicide is not a natural part of anything. WTF are you people talking about? Brutus? What?

    Is this the thread where people compete to find out who can say the most moronic thing imaginable?

    He wanted to commit suicide? He should have jumped and been done with it without pissing everyone else off.

    So, did I just miss the part where someone points out the fact that this guy slipped through the police and had time to shake his hand before he pushed him off?

    Either he's a ninja or just about everyone was tired of the guy.

    Your empathy is overwhelming..

    It always strikes me how a large majority sees suiciders as losers, who only have theirselves to blame, completely oblivious to the FACT that we live in a world full of injustice.

    yeah, like when people hold up traffic for 5 hours.



    No one said they are losers and no one is blaming them. This stunt was obviously done for attention.

    The way I view these things... Most of it's a cry for attention. I find it odd that most people don't fault a baby for calling out for attention, neither a child but as soon as we hit adulthood. The sense of empathy for somebody wanting attention flies out of the window at such a drastic level. Yeah I get that we're adults and all that, but still...

    People deal with problems in multiple ways. I'd imagine there's no set method.

    Someone might cope by withdrawing completely from the world. Some might engage in self-harm as an outlet.
    Some might engage in attention-seeking behaviour by doing crazy things, alienating themselves from themselves and friends.

    It doesn't remove the fact that an underlying problem exists. These people can all be potentially be suffering from immense stress or depression. That in itself deserves my empathy and sympathy imo.

    What that article doesn't tell you is that he pushed him o safety, on to a giant air cushion set up by police. So selective, these media types.

    Yeah, that's because a baby is helpless and can't communicate (but please notice the fact that I choose not to have children). But with grown people... dude, I got my own problems.

    I help everyone I can. I really do more than the average person but I still have opinions about it whether I vocalize it or not. I have no tolerance for people who choose to drag others into their crazy drama. Like all those school shooters who also shoot themselves. I would respect them more if they just shot themselves to begin with... or just asked for help (which I know is not always easy).

    And the end result is that these people get what they wanted - attention. Look how many posts, phone calls, forwards and news clips this dude is getting. Isn't this what he wanted?
