You know that guy that jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge


#1

They say most suicide attempts are not serious or real, they’re cries of rage or for help.

I walked toward the traffic railing. As if nothing else mattered, I ran, channeling an Olympic hurdler, striding light, fast and determined.

I used my arms to catapult myself over the rail.

I did not get on the ledge to be talked down. I jumped quickly, without recourse, falling headfirst, fast and hard into the wind and empty space below me.

I reached back for the rail. It wasn’t there.

In the midst of my free fall, I said to myself these words, words I thought no one would ever hear me repeat: What have I done? I don’t want to die. God, please save me!

I FELL at a speed of 75 mph.

The end was imminent.

Wow. You know, that is, in a way, a privileged position. To have honestly believed you wanted to die, tried to kill yourself, and survived gives you a perspective no one else really has.


#3

Yes in a way it is, and he’s making good use of that privilege. He’s lucky he wasn’t using a gun, I don’t think an attempt by gun offers too many 2nd chances.


#4

You know what a leading indicator of a successful suicide attempt is? A previous suicide attempt.

This is a lot like Obamacare, cheering about immediate effects without waiting to see the long term outcome.

And how is this a Darwin award?


#5

Who’s cheering about the immediate effects of this guys suicide attempt, besides you I mean.


#6

See the initial reply. Then the reply to that reply.

That’s two.

And again, how is this a Darwin Award?


#7

If my putting this under Darwin Awards really really upsets your delicate sensibilities, you are welcome to change the category, I empower you to do so.


#8

I’m more interested in your thought process.


#9

Why are, you writing a book or sumpin?

Wanna make it a Love Story? BWHAHAHAHAHAHA!


#10

I read this guys story a few years ago. Lucky not only to survive, but even luckier he didn’t end up totally physically fukked up for life like most other survivors.

Here’s a short and sad little YouTube of jumpers. The last guy went out with style.


#11

lmfao

seriously, Darwin award?


#12

Is there an echo in here?


#13

Really, ther are a couple of posters here who make it literally impossible to have a genuine conversation about anything.

People who have to make everything either a joke or an object of their ridicule are broken people who are afraid of anything related to having an actual feeling other than rage.


#14

Apey is one. Who else did you have in mind?


#15

Seriously…fuck!


#16

Given your anal retentive nature, one would wonder why you weren’t leading the vanguard, if they didn’t understand the nature of your meltdown already.


#17

It figures you two would be the first to protest. You two are the angriest, most incapable of empathy posters here. Yer a couple of scaredy cats.


#18

Here’s a tissue.


#19

Protesting what, link it.

Scared of what, exactly?


#20

Eww, you’ve been carrying that one around in your cuff all afternoon!
