One of my friends passed away from cancer a few months back. I still get those automatic updates from the businesses, companies, etc., that she 'liked'. I'll open up FB and see, "Cathy likes...". It's a little odd seeing it when you know she's gone.
I googled the guy who murdered his boyfriend and he is SO FUCKING HOT.
The gay guy who was murdered was 46, and his boyfriend, Omar Ibrahim was 21.
I had to see what he looked like.
Imagine my surprise when I googled him. FUCK!
What an awful story, but I am kinda floored at how handsome the murderer is. You really never know about people, huh?
If you look at the pics of some, like Kevin C., you can see the illness setting in his eyes. The brain in malfunctioning. The eyes don't focus, they're off in different directions but just slightly. So sad, a dad. Recognize the look of the brain going haywire and step in.
r5, not to be a dick but a lot of those male suicides do have "gay face". We're on the cusp of something big with gay acceptance. It's really gathering momentum. The finer people get it. Some just know the consequences of living a lie of a life and devastating families. Nobody wants the straight woman looking for love to be duped. Gay acceptance will eradicate that. It's really coming to a turning point and such a great time to be alive. Blows away the Berlin Wall revelations because it's so cosmopolitan. Stay tuned.
Be sure to shop around before you select your anger management counselor.
r12, really? He has absolutely no cheekbone and a big clayish nose. Too deep set eyes. I guess my standards are just higher.
Thanks, R12. You're right. He is very hot.
He'll be very popular in the prison yard, the murdering SOB.

I like masculine rough trade. So sue me!
R20 ... maybe his wife was a really hot 57 year old. Anyway, they had two sons, so I'm sure they'd been married for quite a while (unless the wife had children really late in life).
R8 - I don't really get weirded out by it. It's kind of nice to see, actually. The first time I saw it I was like, "OMG, she's trying to send a message from beyond!!" I didn't actually believe that, but it was nice to be reminded about her. I can see where it might be difficult for some people to have that happen, though. You could always 'unfriend' the person, but to me that wouldn't seem right, at least with my friend.
Wow, I thought this site would be full of cancer and accidents, but they're all suicide. Very sad.
R20. He probably married the 57 y/o because he thought she stood to inherit from the 88 y/o aunt. Then she divorced him and his plan backfired. Maybe they ran up a lot of debt thinking there was a big payday coming, and then he got stuck with all the bills after they divorced.
You know something? A lot of these people's deaths were suicide ,and its interesting that they all had one thing in common, the were on the social networking sites, Facebook and MySpace. I think this reveals a lot about many people who are on these two social networking sights.Many are very lonely and depressed in some way or another looking to connect.
Good theory, R29, but I'll go out on a limb and say the majority of people on FB aren't imminently suicidal.
No R30, I agree with you ,but so many people are becoming isolated and immersed in the internet.
Let me just add that I know of some people who are on Facebook for hours and hours communicating with people.
They're probably on Facebook for hours and hours typing at people, r32. That's different from communication.
there are a LOT of suicides on there ...
Some of these are like the opening scene of Six Feet Under. I can't help but giggle, and honestly if I die unexpectedly, I hope it's an amusing finale. For instance:
Josh Ruzsa (19) died when he fell 150 feet off a mountain while trying to escape a swarm of bees.
What r24 said. She obviously wasn't 57 when he met her or when he married her.
My partner's best friend in college kept sending automatic weekly horoscope related Facebook postings over a year after he died. In fact, partner assumed he was OK and didn't find out his friend had died until it appeared in the school's alumni magazine. Poor guy had been addicted to prescription drugs, unable to hold a job but we still don't know what exactly killed him.
The number of young people who died of various cancers is also pretty surprising too.
I'm not sure what they mean when they say the person committed suicide by unknown means. Does that mean they overdosed and they don't know what types of drugs it was?
I cry the hardest for the hot ones.
Some interesting ones:
Ian Turton (45) died after his raft was attacked by crocodiles
Megan Riggans (22) was killed in a car accident while on her way to give birth - her baby also died
Ramon Colorado (42) was shot for cutting in line at a Rite Aid
ShaChela Womack (35) was killed in an auto accident on the way home from her baby shower - her baby also died
Vice President of Suicide.org Betsy Goodale (21) took her own life
Amy Aiton (31) was murdered by her boyfriend after she allegedly told him to stab her
Thomas Kelly (18) died when he was punched by a stranger in an unprovoked attack
[quote]That story is BIZARRE, [R18]. He was a very handsome and successful 45 year old man, who could have had some hot women. Instead, he married a 57 year old.
That IS bizarre!
Everyone knows the only reasons anyone ever gets married is for beauty and sex!
That website used to allow user comments which frequently became insane. I see they've finally shut that feature down (I remember people wanting the entire site taken down). It's not quite the same now that so many people are using FB which has the option of being set to private. Back in the day it was all myspace pages which were still up and running after everyone's death. It was sad to be able to read their posts from the hours/days before they died and then suddenly BOOM they were gone.
It's the ones who die the really bizarre accidental deaths that are really haunting, like this woman who was sitting on a ledge in an apartment highrise and lost her balance and fell to her death.
They're like the dramatic deaths at the beginning of each episode of SIX FEET UNDER. They're so senseless.
No surprise there, R51. That catman had issues .... and I suspect he thought he had nine lives.
It's really sad how many suicides linked to bullying there are on there. I was bullied severely all throughout middle and high school, but not once did I let them get to me like that.
I'd hate to go to school these days R54. At least when I was in school (the '90s), any bullying stopped when I went home. Now all those bullies can still get to you after hours via the internet! And the potential audience for internet bullying is so much larger than just a classroom full of peers. I can only imagine how unrelenting and seemingly hopeless it can get.
This one reminds me of that one episode of SATC when that socialite fell out of the window at a party...
"When did everybody stop smoking? When did everybody pair off? This used to be the most exciting city in the world and now it's nothing but smoking near a fucking open window. New York is over. O -V - E - R. Over. No one's fun anymore. What ever happened to fun? I'm so bored I could die."

Her sister also took her life:
