    Ultimately, suicide is an act of selfishness.

    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.

    I was referring, and thought you were referring, to death. Not the act.

    Well, I was referring to the contemplation of the act.

    Perhaps the person is in such a dark place in their life that he/she sees suicide as a brighter thing because they're getting away from what is hurting them most. That's speaking from experience having been on the receiving end of one of those calls from a friend that committed suicide just after he hung up.

    Not intended to disrespect his memory. I didn't join until right at or just after the time the thread was posted. Speaking from an experienced perspective only.

    Across the street from the nail salon is a gas station. The nail salon was a B&T shop.
    He had a big sign out front. “FRESH BUNKER” No one ever had fresh bunker, just frozen. It’s to
    much of a headache for such a little profit. The gas station across the street was old and run down.
    He had enough customers coming for gas to stay in business. There was a ice chest at the station
    where he sold frozen bait. A small display inside with hooks and sinkers. They modernized the gas
    station and stopped selling bait and tackle at the station. The B&T shop turned into the nail salon.
    The guy from the B&T tackle owns that property and also owns that gas station that HE modernized.


    This is old money. If you walked into the B&T shop during the off season.
    They were in the back playing poker. I went to high school with the kids.
    Meet the parents, I didn’t plan it that way.
