Poor Tony Bourdain? Fuck him. and every other rich and famous twat who thought they had a problem and decided to kill themself. Like that cunt kate spade who offed herself just before. they got the world by the balls. got a problem? get fucking help. you certainly can afford it, unlike most of the poor sods who can't. "oh, i'm sooo tired of living the good life, eating the best food, fucking the finest ass, and traveling the world in first class. i think i'll do drugs or some other stupid fucking thing. poor poor pitiful me." fuck 'em one and all. ntm bourdain was a pig. no one ever said i was PC.

The pain that leads to suicide can be represented no larger than our collective veterans. The pain that leads to suicide shares no demographic. But it shares a common thread, to stop ones pain and let others live. But the pain is so deep those who commit don’t understand they transfer the pain and take the living away from survivors. Bad form Aztec, you are better than that.

I'm 100% correct. Bourdain and his likes that off themselves is a 1st World problem. Travel to the 3rd World shitholes of the world where folks don't even know where their next meal is coming from or when. Ask them what they think about this.

The top 10 countries by suicide rate are:

1 Sri Lanka
3 Mongolia
4 Kazakhstan
8 Lithuania
2 Guyana
6 Suriname
7 Equatorial Guinea
5 Côte d'Ivoire
9 Angola
10 South Korea

Hardly a smorgasbord of wealth and privilege.

thanks for proving my point. which was that places that present an extremely (and genuine) difficult living environment deserve a harder look at for the causes of suicide, and therefore our sympathy. these are folks with real problems. not a privileged turd like bourdain. like my old man used to say, "the last time i was wrong was when i thought i made a mistake." discussion ended.

Think Aztec Dave is saying people in third world shit holes have reasonable excuses to kill themselves like famine, debtor prisons, abject poverty, etc. Whereas these wealthy celebrities have all resources needed for help and choose to kill themselves anyway. Therefore someone in a place of little/no privilege is going to roll their eyes at some rich assholes supposed plight. Frankly if I offed myself people better call me an asshole and piss on my grave.

The big clue in the phrase "mental illness" are the words, mental and illness.

You cannot logic your way out of it because your brain is literally not working logically. That is the fucking point.

No cure for the common cold and no cure for suicidal ideation.

But anyone with thoughts of ending it all should consider that bridge jump survivors regretted their decision on the way down.
