for the very brave, there is always suicide by train, usually it is very effective.
there are people that walk in front of trains that are traveling in excess of 100 miles per hour.
usually there are body parts strewn all over the place.
one young lady, probably around twenty years old, had lost her boyfriend, she did exactly that.
and then there is always the cold spring bridge, located in santa barbara..
that thing is some four hundred feet off the ground, something like 55 people have jumped off of it, nobody has ever lived thru the fall.
i was having a very nice conversation with a man at a coffee shop, an exceptionally nice man, he brought up the subject of suicide...
he told me of a 14 year old girl that recently took a city bus to the golden gate bridge in san francisco, she is now dead.
he also told me of a man in his neighborhood that was about to lose his home to forclosure and so he killed his entire family and then killed himself, as an alternative to becoming destitute and homeless.
i am not suicidal, plz do not call the samaritans, lol..
it is my opinion that we should allow those that are suicidal an option to do so peacefully..
Anatomy of a Teen Tragedy Three friends met at the railroad tracks. Two ended their lives. What were the girls thinking? Their own words offer a hint. May 16, 2010|By Mari A. Schaefer, Maria Panaritis, and Joelle Farrell INQUIRER STAFF WRITERS
Editor's note: In the weeks after two teenage girls from Delaware County committed suicide in February by stepping in front of an Amtrak train, The Inquirer interviewed dozens of friends, relatives, police, public officials, and school personnel in an effort to reconstruct how this tragedy took place and to help understand the causes and recognize the warning signs of teenage suicide.
Vanessa Dorwart was out the door in a flash.
The Interboro High School sophomore seldom went anywhere without first considering, 'How do I look?' But on this late February morning, the 15-year-old got out of bed, pulled her hair into a ponytail, threw on some clothes, and zipped out.
No primping. No purse. No Burberry perfume.
It was just Vanessa, her BlackBerry, and a 1 1/2-mile walk to the Norwood train station.
'I'm going out real quick,' she told her older sister, Frankie, 17, also home sick from school. The sky was blank and the air thick with the kind of chill you get before a winter storm. Weary souls were bracing for more snow in a paralyzing winter.
'I'm meeting up with Kelly and Gina, and I'll be back.'
Vanessa, Kelly Cashwell, and Gina Gentile were a teenage triumvirate, inseparable. They liked sleepovers, dances, and Facebook, this tight trio from a cluster of towns just beyond the runways of Philadelphia International Airport.
Vanessa, 9:28 a.m.: 'Kell - where the hell are u going'
Kelly, 9:28 a.m.: 'heaven'
These clues, if they may be called that, came from Vanessa's cell phone. The phone she tapped on as she approached a picture-postcard park between her Glenolden home and the Norwood station, 20 minutes away.
It is impossible to know Vanessa's thoughts the morning of Feb. 25 as she set out to join the other two who had cut class. The mind of a teenager is a thing of mystery, a tempest of coming-of-age.
Even more mysterious is what could have driven the three friends to meet on the tracks. That question would leave their community thirsty for answers, loved ones writhing in regret, and people at a distance, people totally unconnected, stunned at such tragic resolve.
Kelly, 9:29 a.m.: 'Never forget I love You'
Vanessa, 9:29 a.m.: 'I'm going with you, where are u'
Kelly, 9:31 a.m.: 'Your too late trains coming now'
Vanessa walked through blue-collar Delaware County boroughs built by 19th-century railroad dreamers as country escapes for the well-to-do, who have long since left. The bedraggled boroughs sit along the Delaware River's once-muscular industrial spine.
I never kicked you or slandered you. The truth is very powerful. They always try to shoot the messenger. You have a good heart and most of the time you make good sense. Common Sense means letting go and moving on. You caused me harm however I forgive you and I am free now from my anger.
Look at the coward that removed himself from the contest because he blew it before the end. You are not a fool or a coward.
You are correct about Gold as it is money and a store of wealth. Can I send you some Gold ?
To the original poster, if there's someone making 50% a month on 10k CONSISTENTLY and is just breaking even after living expenses... tell that man to take out a loan. Even at 20% APR, he'd start making a ridiculous profit.
It's such an easy solution to become incredibly wealthy (and you can do peer-to-peer or other unsecured loans if he has bad credit), I have trouble believing that anyone who can make 50% IN A MONTH consistently hasn't thought of it.
