Lately it seems there have been a lot of reports of suicide.  Also, a friend of mine blew his brains out about a month ago over a girl.  I always wonder what was going through their mind the last 5 minutes.  I think it would be interesting to "hear" their thoughts before they do the deed.

 

As for the friend of mine, apparently their recent newborn was starting to look a little hispanic (neither him nor the mom were hispanic) and she was a piece of trash to begin with.  But he walked up to her, and apparently said, "this is what you made me do" then put a gun against his temple and pulled the trigger.  I recently sold him my ThinkPad and I emailed him a week prior asking him how the laptop was treating him and how he was doing.  He said "Actually, I am in the lowest point of my life right now, call me."  It was @ 6:00am and I was getting ready for work, so I told him I would call him later in the day.  I called around 10:00 and got his VM.  Never talked to him again.

Sorry for hijacking the thread - and taking this into another direction, and making it about me - but I havent talked to anyone about this and I guess I wanted someone to "hear" the story.

The kid injured two then killed himself. The teacher he was trying to kill fled to outside of the school.

The news I saw said it was a shotgun.  In a lot of states I believe you can buy long-guns at 18, so he may have actually bought it himself.  Handguns are restricted until you're 21, but I believe you can buy rifles and shotguns at 18 in most places.
